Living Colour: Time’s Up (1990)

living colour times up

By Scott Goldfine

Living Colour, the band that shattered rock’s racial barriers with its platinum debut, “Vivid,” crystalizes its technique on “Time’s Up.” Paced by master guitarist Vernon Reid and guttural vocalist Corey Glover, the group annihilates hard-rock preconceptions by meshing tales of urban urgency with a plethora of musical styles.

Living Colour’s second round is a knockout.
