Editors’ Notes As louder, harder sounds broke through to the mainstream, Living Colour were encouraged to explore their darker side—a feat not too difficult considering the talents within the band. Bassist Muzz Skillings had parted ways amicably to explore his own musical interests, and the incredibly capable Doug Wimbish (Mick Jagger, Madonna) took his slot. Ron Saint Germain—who’d previously produced Vernon Reid’s favorite band, Bad Brains—ensured a tougher sound here, and the avoidance of guest appearances (which Time’s Up had benefitted from) forced the band to look inward. Living Colour's natural anti-establishment and cynical world views come through loud and clear on “Go Away,” “Ignorance Is Bliss," and “Never Satisfied,” while the low-key but powerful “Nothingness” captures the band’s incredible empathy. “Auslander” and “Postman” bring Wimbish to the battlefront for to-the-point rockers. It’s incredible to think the group disbanded after this—citing musical differences—considering how well everybody works here, as both individuals and members of the team.
