  • Inspiration for a lifetime of music consumption

    By WWS2012
    This album is one of the most complete pieces of recording art in existence. Living Colour’s "Time’s Up" is my favorite with “Vivid" a close second from this band. Vernon’s Reids guitar work in part sentenced me to death as a musician in the early 90’s when I went full force into guitar study. Is there a better rock drummer that has been recorded than Will Calhoun? A better rhythm section than Will and Muzz? I find the depth, colors, textures, lyrical substance, multi dimensions, and overall flow of this (and all of their albums) beyond compare. But especially Time’s Up is near perfect. Why are their so few bands and albums that are given to the human race as satisfying and inspiring as this? Buy and listen repeatedly. That is all.
  • One of the best

    By Deke76
    This is easily one of the best albums of the 90's - top ten. The whole thing from start to end is brilliant.

    This is one of the best rock albums released ever by any band! As a white kid growing up in New York suburbia, this album blew my mind.... These guys need to get back together for good!
  • black history

    By leakedoff
    please tell me why this band has not been included in black music month page,aside from being one of the great bands of the 90,s the might be one of the best of all time; they were just as important as the grunge bands of the same era. it is a disgrace they were left out of i tunes black rock section!!!!!

    With such incredibly soulful vocals, deeply meaningful subject matter and awesomely wicked instrumentals this album transcends commercial rock, which is why it continues, and criminally so, to be overlooked. "This is the life", "Type", "New Jack Theme" and "Information Overload" may be of particularly interest to those new to Living Colour". Also check out the Vivid album. Awesome doesnt describe it.
  • Genius

    By Imnotorwilli
    Ultimate blend of social consciousness and straight rock. Never should have broken up.
  • Greatness

    By LTS56
    Great, unappreciated group of the 90's. "Solace of You" and "Nothingness" are still two of my favorite songs. They are also absolutely incredible live...just sick, sick musicians and Glover is dope. A NYC staple.
  • Solace of You should have been a #1 mega-hit

    By Ken Scar
    Somebody in Living Colour's camp screwed up when that song wasn't released as a single. It should have been a HUGE HIT. It remains one of my all-time favorite songs of the last 20 years. The reggae beat, the world-music vibe, the delicious acoustic licks, the poignant lyrics - it's everything a song should be.
  • Vivid will be better remembered...and shouldn't be

    By 4Strings 1Love
    So Living Colour produced Vivid and shocked the world by creating one of the most exciting rock albums in a long time. The followup Time's Up was not as well received and that's a shame. Time's Up, Pride, Love Rears, Someone Like you, Information Overload, Solace of You...et. al. could be listened to all day long without discovering every texture. Every piece of instrumentality and musicality is sublime. Classic.
  • Like the band, tragically overlooked

    By Crispy Wing
    Yeah, "Cult of Personality" is a great piece, and because of it, Living Colour's debut "Vivid" seems to be the extent of most rock fans' knowledge of this band. Indeed, after my first few listenings, I was a bit disappointed in "Time's Up." The thrash-metal leanings of the title track aren't exactly inviting to those expecting the metal-funk formula that marked the debut with pieces like "Funny Vibe" and "What's Your Favorite Colour?" But give it a chance. Texturally, sonically, lyrically and emotionally, this is a much more complete work. "Love Rears Its Ugly Head" and "Elvis is Dead" bring an unexpected humor that is often lacking in hard rock efforts. "Ology," a short instrumental composed entirely on bass, is amazingly beautiful and leaves the listener wanting more at the fade-out. The coda, "This is the Life" is a soaring, majestic work that always gives me chills. Of course, the guitar work is typical Vernon Reid: fiery and blazingly fast if not the most precise. Corey Glover is in fine form, revealing more emotional range than he did in Vivid. But the rhythm section of William Calhoun and Muzz Skillings also stand out, and nearly steal the show.
