I got it with a warning!!
on 30 May 2008
This is the only album I have evr been warned about by the person behind the counter!! Seriously - the shop assisitant said "If you're buying this because you liked 'Vivid' then you might not be pleased." I was a little worried when I got it home. I need not have been. From the virtual thrash stomp of the title track to the excellent Muzz Skillings song 'Someone Like You' (whatever happened to Muzz?) and the brilliant 'Solace of You' this album is typical of Living Colour's versatility. Superb writing and musicianship the only slight concern would be that occasionally on this CD there are moments where the inclination toward 'muso' for the sake of it might alienate some. That said, it rewards repeated listens and although 'Vivid' is more immediate (and therefore popular) I believe this to be the stronger ALBUM. Excellent band who spilt criminally early. Together again now but can't help wonder what they would have produced had they followed 'Stain.'
