I picked up collideųscope since I have listened to the living shit out of their first 3 albums and needed MORE. Its actually pretty solid.
I LOVE this band
Being a hardcore, I jumped on Collideoscope when it came out, but I ultimately really don't enjoy the record a ton. "Flying" is the best song, and being a native NYer, the tune has always creeped me out. Solid, solid song, but tough to listen to. "Sacred Ground" was something they had lying around for awhile, but I dig that too. I think the other tunes are OK, but overall, I probably vote for Collideoscope being their worst record, personally. The covers of Back in Black and Tomorrow Never Knows are really good, but other than Flying and Sacred Ground, I could pass on the rest.
I really enjoyed The Chair in the Doorway a lot more...except the mix was horrendous. Vernon absolutely shreds in Burned Bridges, and the guitars are pushed all the way to the back.
I'm really looking forward to Shade, whenever they finally put it out there. I've seen Living Colour live a ton of times, and they are always a must see band.
