17 Songs, 1 Hour 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Though Pride is largely considered a greatest-hits collection, it’s also of major importance to fans for the inclusion of three previously unreleased tracks that were recorded for the follow-up to Living Colour's third album, Stain. (A fourth song, “Visions,” originally appeared on the True Lies soundtrack.) All Living Colour anthologies include “Cult of Personality,” “Open Letter (To a Landlord),” “Glamour Boys,” and “Funny Vibe” from their excellent debut, Vivid. “Pride,” “Solace of You,” “Type," and “Time’s Up”—from their second album, the equally devastating Time’s Up—often follow. This collection adds the powerful Biscuits EP live version of the Talking Heads cover “Memories Can’t Wait” and the "Soulpower Remix" of “Love Rears Its Ugly Head,” alongside underrated tracks such as “WTFF” and “Nothingness” from Stain. Of the previously unreleased material, “Release the Pressure” and “Sacred Ground” stick to a harder and heavier approach, while “These Are Happy Times” works from the band’s soulful side.

good song selections, two track mess-ups

this collection has a nice pick of tracks for the new or casual listener. the hard-core fans like myself will probably have already heard nearly all of these songs on the original albums. tracks 2, 3, and 6, however are not available elsewhere and should be the main (if not only) reason to add this to your library. why? Because there is a small flaw in tracks 10 and 17 (WTFF and What's Your Favorite Color? respectively). track 10 is cut short and fades out. track 17 is even worse because you get most of the named song but then it immediately does the first verse and half of the chorus to Which Way To America before breaking into Tag Team Partners. again, a nice buyable collection but with two big mess-ups.
in regards to the three previously unreleased tracks, I think that Release The Pressure is the best because the version of Sacred Ground on Collideøscope is a bit better.
all in all I will give it 3 1/2 to 4 stars.

So miss this band!!!!

I wish they would release their album "Vivid" on ITunes, but this will do as it hits all the highlights. What an incredible band with such great music and lyrics!!
