25 years ago the greatest Foo Fighters album came out.
This video, this album, this summer, this year. Too many musical memories. Love it.
I feel this was the most exciting era, as a young fan...we had the rocking debut, then they hit us with this fresh new sound, mega hits, tours, fun music videos. Fucking brilliant.
I still remember the day I picked it up on CD from HMV. Skipped school and listened to it in a park all afternoon. 😍
...bloody miss the 90s
Their second best album in my opinion but still a classic. I remember my sister wearing out her radio station promotional copy our uncle-in-law gave her as part of a huge batch of albums from the record label building he worked in. My copy is scratched to hell and back but it still plays just fine. Still remember when I finally figured out the My Hero drums and how accomplished that made me feel.
My forever favorite 💕💕
And sadly - any recognition of the date by the band has been rendered pretty much impossible.
In other related news - the most recent 2011 TCATS vinyl repressing now seems sold out everywhere...
and sealed copies have been selling for well over $100. So original 97 versions are now worth who knows how much more.
This was HUGE for me too! I loved the first album, but still thought it would be a one-off in terms of quality. But once this came out, I was 100% all in & hooked!
At least someone remembered it. https://www.loudersound.com/features/the-colour-and-the-shape-at-25-how-foo-fighters-second-album-took-dave-grohl-out-of-kurt-cobains-shadow
Well spotted - and a really good piece too.
I still find this pretty fucking heartbreaking though... I've heard more than enough of William on FF songs to know there is no way more of his input was perfectly usable - he just didn't sound like Dave, and Dave's head was in a pretty messed up place for so many reasons. It might have been different - but I'd really like to have heard that "never to be" version of the album.
"Goldsmith – who says he recorded 96 takes for one song, and spent 13 hours working on another – would end up with just two credits on the final recording: album opener Doll and Up in Arms. "
The greatest album of all time.
I remember my CD being so thrashed that it would always skip on Enough Space which really pissed me off as I loved that song, especially going into February Stars. That's the good thing about Spotify I guess!
I'd always get skipping on Enough Space too...
pogoing up and down always did that to the stylus 🤣
Late to the celebration on this one - also my fav album of all time. CD skipped in some spots from all the love it got. My first concert ever was on this tour and I have foolishly been living in the bubble of this era in my mind ever since.
I’m in that bubble with you!
Best cozy bubble 😎
