EDITORS’ NOTES

Their first album in eight years, Living Colour’s heavy metal opus Shade was worth the wait. The colossal riffs of “Freedom of Expression (F.O.X)” and bluesy howls of “Preachin’ Blues” herald a promising new era for their sound. The band casts Notorious B.I.G.'s meditation on violence “Who Shot Ya” in a new light, using metallic guitar lines and funky singing to bring the song into the 21st century.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Yes yes yes

I saw them live for the first time not 12 hours ago, and my ears are still ringing. What have I been denying myself?! This album is awesome!!!

Come on, guys...

I've loved LC since "Vivid" in the late 80s. And I was excited to see a new album, so I sampled the 2 tracks currently available, "Come On" and "Who Shot Ya?" At least TWICE in the latter song, Corey Glover uses the n-word...

Come on, guys. Just make great music, don't jump on the gangsta train and ruin your songs with off-color (pardon the pun) lyrics! 🤦🏼‍♂️

Wow!

This band continues to amaze. One of the best rock bands in the world. Period.
