Foo Fighters

The Pretender

It’s 10 whole years since the most vital Foo Fighters album, ‘The Colour And The Shape’, hit the shelves. How do we know this? Because they’ve just re-released the damn thing, that’s how. New single ‘The Pretender’ was already up against it, what with the traditionally slow period as we head towards Christmas and a slew of brilliant singles from young whippersnappers like Cajun Dance Party and I Was A Cub Scout, but putting it head-to-head with the likes of ‘Monkey Wrench’ and ‘Everlong’ just seems plain silly. Needless to say, this pales in comparison.
