Album Review

As of 2009, Living Colour has released a total of five live albums — which is pretty unheard of for a rock band, unless you're the Grateful Dead. However, 2009's Paris Concert is arguably the best Living Colour live release yet. Recorded in the summer of 2007, the double-disc CD was also released as a DVD that replicates the set list song for song, and balances the hits ("Glamour Boys," "Cult of Personality") with covers ("Papa Was a Rolling Stone," "Crosstown Traffic"), album cuts ("Go Away," "Song Without Sin"), and head-scratchers (the Doug Wimbish-sung "Either Way"). The band sounds as rockin,' funky, and unpredictable as ever — offering a pretty well-balanced set of renditions of songs from all four of their studio albums — with a slightly heavier emphasis on Vivid. That said, a pair of over-12-minute songs ("Sacred Ground" and "Flying"), and an over-six-minute unaccompanied drum solo take up too much space, and as a result, such expected tracks as "Time's Up" get the boot. But again, looking at the big picture, Paris Concert will satisfy many Living Colour fans as the group's one-and-only live release in their album collection.

But bands such as New York's Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the '80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.).
