Don't let the one hit wonder status of Living Colour fool you...Jimi Hendrix is a one hit wonder, too. After the huge success of their debut album Vivid and it's monster hit "Cult Of Personality", they followed up with Time's Up. It's actually a better album, and the best in the band's catalog. Vernon Reid is maybe the unsung guitar hero of the period, and Corey Glover is a bad ass on the vocals. "Love Rears Its Ugly Head" should have been a hit, and excellent tracks like "Elvis Is Dead", "Type", and "Fight The Fight" make it a solid album.

Living Colour broke up in the mid 90's, but they have come back since. They never matched their first 2 albums, though. This one is well worth having.

This is album #117 in an ongoing series.

Absolutely! As you can see, this one is number 117 so far. I try to do at least one per day, and I'd love to find a place where there's exposure...always better to write for more than just to yourself! Thank you...I will find you at discord!
