It is crazy how the Color And The Shape is pretty much the start of how basically every Foo Fighters album would sound from then on. Very generic alt rock basically. Not as much as Nickelback but just the bare minimum to be just decent, generic middle of the road alt rock. Although theres some real nice deep cuts on Color & The Shape like "Doll" (beautiful song actually) and "See You" that have more character than anything after. Still thats about it.
