19 Ago 2010, 19:48 de RedStripe118Having played Everlong so many times on Rock Band 2, I kind of got sick of that song, haha. Even then, however, it's still great, and combining that with the fact that Dave Grohl is possibly made of pure awesome (going past the obvious distinction of being Nirvana's drummer, he's also down with Tenacious D and drummed on QOTSA's Songs for the Deaf, which I absolutely adore) was enough reason to delve into some Foo.
And this album's pretty damn good; certainly helps that all its singles hit the mark, and the album tracks - like Wind Up with its awesome verse riff and chorus, and the ultra-joyful Up In Arms - hold up nicely, too. One of the highest marks comes at the very end, with the screamtastic insanity of the title track (The Colour and the Shape).
Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape (10th Anniversary Reissue)
Back to the Summer Music Listening Series main page.
This review needs more detail, I'm finding. This was one of the earlier albums I wrote about, and at that time my evaluations were pretty short. …
7 Ene 2009, 1:08 de wwfanzSince it's six days into 2009, I should have done this already. Alas, here's a short review of my 2008 purchases.
Albums That Came Out in 2008
Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful of Sunshine
Over the course of the year, I've grown to like this album more than her first. So many great gems throughout. Definitely worth purchasing.
Star Tracks: Backyard, Angel and Not Givin' Up
Anna Nalick - Shine EP
Not a real album, but worth mentioning for containing an awesome Red Hot Chili Peppers cover. Can't wait for a her sophomore album.
Star Tracks: Breaking The Girl
Alanis Morissette - Flavors of Entanglement (deluxe edition)
First of all, it's so worth it to get the bonus disc. A solid effort from Alanis. Not as angry as Jagged Little Pill, yet not as happy as So-Called Chaos. Possibly her best album yet.
Star Tracks: Straitjacket, Torch, Giggling Again for No Reason, Tapes and On the Tequila
Superchic - Rock What You Got LP

25 Ago 2007, 16:40 de JennifregTue 21 Aug – Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Silversun Pickups
In one word amazing.
Me and my friend arrived at Meadowbank with brilliant timing about 10 minutes before Silversun Pickups came up and just as Nivana – Smells Like Teen Spirit was playing on the video screens. First on were Silversun Pickups how I didn't really know anything about and I had only briefly listened to a few of their songs on myspace. Silversun Pickups were good and I got a free CD (with Future Foe Scenarios on it which I quite like), which survived the gig already beating expectations without me even listening to it. The guy was quite funny "I have to thank Nine Inch Nails and Foo fighters for closing for us. Be sure to stick around for them, their new and a little strange but their good."
After Silversun Pickups came Nine Inch Nails. Trent Reznor simply introduced them "We're Nine Inch Nails, and we make noise." They were brilliant! Part way through the set a mosh pit started up right next to me which was quite funny. …
20 Ago 2007, 8:49 de haylemJust felt like posting the playlist used for the latest grill-night at home, thought it could be fun in a few years, as I won't be able to deny to my kids or grand-kids (if I ever have such "things") that I used to listen to bands like X, Y or Z and how old school I would seem to them.
