About This Show
The completist is a user-friendly discussion of the music that has shaped pop culture – new and old (though mostly old-ish). Most episodes focus on an album or artist, examining the themes, sounds and styles filtered through M.D. and Kyle’s unique backgrounds – from history and theology to film and guitar pedals. Intended more as a celebration than a strict analysis, the completist seeks to deepen our connection to music – encouraging active listening over passive music consumption. // completistpodcast.com //

ep. 015 -- an analysis of The Colour and the Shape (1997) by Foo Fighters
Foo Fighters may be one of the biggest acts in rock music in the 21st century, but when they first arrived on the scene they had a lot to prove and Nirvana-sized shoes to fill. In this episode, M.D. and Kyle discuss Dave Grohl's strengths as a songwriter, singer and bandleader and the impact hits like "My Hero", "Everlong" and "Monkey Wrench" had on rock radio and the emerging emo movement.
The album production was not without its controversies, as Dave recut much of William Goldsmith's drums with his own pronounced and recognizable flair. Right or wrong, Dave helped color and shape one of the finest rock records of the 90s and brought Foo Fighters up from interesting post-Nirvana project to a world renowned alternative rock band.
