A major criticism of the Foo Fighters' self-titled debut was its supposed lack of, you know, passion among the well-crafted songs and well-crafted rock. This time out, if it's wreckage you want, it's wreckage you get. The Colour & the Shape grows deeper the more it's played, with the band's ripping power more than matched by Dave Grohl's fascinating examinations of pain and divorce. There's even a convincing long slow ballad, "November Stars," whose intensity should win over doubters. If that doesn't work, then the screaming "My Hero" will. --Rickey Wright

While the remastering is subtle at best, this is a great buy at $7.99 (well, that's what it's listed at right now) even without the glorious bonus tracks.
"Baker Street" --- I can't decide which I like better; Foo Fighters cover (Faster tempo, guitar solo, coke instead of booze. Heh.) or the Gerry Rafferty (Poignant sax solo, sense of great space). I can listen to both back to back & never be able to choose.
If you don't already have this remastered version or the original, you should get it simply for the fact that "Everlong" is one of the best rock songs ever created.
