iTunes Review

Living Colour emerged in the late ‘80s as the hard-rock band most likely to bridge the gap between heavy metal’s brute force and commercial radio’s need to push a gentler, friendlier pop hook. Their 1988 debut, Vivid, was a tour de force, but subsequent albums found the group still plenty skillful but lacking a certain drive and their commercial fortunes waned. 2009’s The Chair In the Doorway may not return the group to their initial heights, but it does contain plenty of recharged passion. Singer Corey Glover channels his inner rage for the slow-grind funk of “Decadance” and the soul-ballad-to-powerchord force of “Hard Times,” even turning pretty for the gorgeous pop of “Taught Me.” Guitarist Vernon Reid, always one of the more experimental lead guitarists ever since his days in Ronald Shannon Jackson’s Decoding Society, lets loose with plenty of helter-skelter solos, whether they’re buried in the mix or front-and-center showpieces. And no one can challenge the rhythm section of bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Will Calhoun for sheer elasticity.

Customer Reviews

Powerful stuff

Here's what Living Colour is - the best guitar player, the best bass player, the best drummer, and the best singer, playing loud and proud rock and roll. That's all uneed to know!!!! Great songs on here too, check it out

Worth the Wait

For longtime fans, this is an album that mixes all the styles of their previous albums. It's as heavy as Stain, as experimental as Time's Up and even sees them return to some of the sounds of Vivid. It's a nice change from Collideoscope - a great album - but one that fit the post 9/11 moment. This album showcases a group that is having fun again.

Highlight tracks

The Chair - sounds like Soundgarden as played by Living Colour

Behind the Sun - um, well - Living Colour

Bless Those - sounds like the Red Hot Chili Peppers interpreted by Doug Wimbish (Time's Up LC)

Taught Me - sounds like Vivid era LC

Burned Bridges - Sounds Like a progression from Collideoscope

The entire album is very good - these are simply the tracks that stood out to me


Yes! It's finally here! It's a great CD... Do yourself a favor and get this thing now!

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable, the opposite of the late '60s/early '70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. 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.). The group (singer...
