This is a truly superb collection. I've listened to it almost solidly since it was delivered and it prompted me to go out after their whole back-catalogue. Just inspired.

I have rediscovered this band. Loved them when I was younger. A real good mix of tracks and styles. Recommended

I purchased it for "love rears it ugly head" and hoped the rest would be a similar style as I knew nothing of the band. They did not suit my musical tastes, not bad just not for me

A good collection, but there's one that's a little better.... 17 Jun. 2013
By zlh67 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'll start with a full disclosure and say that to me, Living Colour is the best rock/hard rock oriented band to come out of the 80's or 90's or any decade since, so *any* Living Colour album bought is money well spent to me! That said, there are several LC compilations out there and some *are* better than others, so here's my two cents...

Compilations are of course made for those fans that want a band's best tracks (or best KNOWN tracks) without having to go get all the individual albums, and while this compilation has some great stuff on it, the best Living Colour compilation is EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE from 2006.

First, it's the most generous, with 17 total tracks. But more importantly, it's (mostly) the RIGHT 17 tracks: Living Colour has about 12 or 13 tracks that were released as singles and/or received significant airplay, and EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE includes 10 of them including a generous 6 of the 11 total tracks from the smash debut "Vivid". And one of the tracks "missing" ("Love Rears Its Ugly Head") actually is included, but it's a hip-hop style remix instead of the original, which I find a curious decision. The only other questionable decision on that one is the inclusion of "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" (a Jimi Hendrix cover) from their "Biscuits" EP instead of the superior track "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing" (a James Brown cover from the same EP that wasn't a huge hit per se, but did reach #12 on the "Modern Rock Tracks" chart).

Apart for that though, ĖVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE mostly sticks to the 3 core albums Living Colour made before they (temporarily) split in the mid-90's and does a great job of selecting the best tracks from each. Also included is the best track from their under-rated comeback album in 2003 ("Collideoscope"), a slo-funk track called "Flying" that features 9/11 themed lyrics (as does much of that album).

On the plus side though, "Playlist" is easily the 2nd best compilation, featuring 8 of LC's truly essential cuts (including the previously mentioned "Talkin Loud and Sayin Nothing"), plus a bit of a rarity in "Me, Myself & My Microphone", a track Living Colour did with Run-DMC for the "Judgment Night" soundtrack (not one of their best songs imo, and it's mostly RUN-DMC doing the vocals, but it's interesting nonetheless).

Many buyers looking at Living Colour compilations are just after their biggest song "Cult of Personality" and it IS an unquestioned classic. "Playlist" of course includes that track, but this band has so much more to offer that you really should do yourself a favor and make the effort get the best compilation out there, which is ĖVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. The only thing better is getting all their individual cd's:

Vivid (1988) - remastered version available
Time's Up (1990)
Biscuits EP (1991)
Stain (1993)
Collideoscope (2003)
Chair in the Doorway (2009)
I thought a "very best of" would have a fantastic tune at each track 3 July 2014

I bought this for the song "Cult of Personality". I thought a "very best of" would have a fantastic tune at each track. That was not the case.

I love Cult of Personality and got this disc because I figured I would like it. I have not enjoyed it that much and none of the songs come close to touching CoP.
