Haha that's right. If memory serves, giving review copies to the press in the form of a cassette tape was the label's way of combating leaks and digital piracy at the time. The logic, I assume, being that back in 2002 (and to an extent, even now) it would be way more of a hassle and less practical to leak an album to the internet if you had a cassette to work with instead of CD that you could just pop in and rip.

Spin actually did shit on the Colour and the Shape.

It's totally a record where the initial reviews and how it's viewed a decade plus later simply don't match up. I don't think it got a single 4 star review or better

I remember when Kerrang gave IYH a 5/5 and NME said that ESPG was their favourite Foo album..

haha my fav quote so far: "Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic, HuŁsker DuŁ's Bob Mould, and the Germs' Pat Smear, who played with the Foos from 1994 to '97, all appear, forming a kind of Voltron of '90s alt-ness."

I loved the "It sounds like a greatest hits record. They're unstoppable." Amazing.
