"Colour and the Shape" is plain and simply one of the best albums I have ever heard. Dave Grohl's musical genius should never be discounted, and his talents far surpass almost anyone in the business today - simply put, he is a living legend. CATS is simply awesome, from the mellow opener 'Doll' to the sonic assault that is 'Monkeywrench'. Sonic assault is the perfect word to describe this album. The setup is interesting, as it goes from a series of short songs, that lead up to big ones. 'Up In Arms' is one of the small songs (great one at that) but its message and length is perfect as the drum intro to 'My Hero' begins. The last 4 tracks are an absolute treat and 'Everlong', 'Walking After You', and 'New Way Home' is about a strong a 1-2-3 punch to finish of an album as I have ever seen, rivaled by none other. "Colour and the Shape" is an absolutely essential album. Many years from now, the ripples left behind by Dave Grohl will be alongside names such as Dylan, Lennon, and Morrison, as the true legends of rock music. Very highly recommended.
