If you are looking for a cd that showcases the diversity of the band's musical influences, I suggest you buy PRIDE instead. Not only does it contains many of these "super hits" but also some previously unreleased tracks and other omissions like:
"Love Rears Its Ugly Head", "Memories Can't Wait", "Funny Vibe", "Glamour Boys", "Solace Of You" and "What's Your Favorite Color?"
I have no idea why the record company would even bother releasing this half-baked disk when PRIDE is available for the same price. In any case, this is a great band that deserves your unbiased ear.
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, 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, ËVERYTHING 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.Read more ›
