Amid the deluge of glam metal that ruled the charts and airwaves in the late-1980s, NYC's Living Colour issued its debut, 1988's VIVID. The album proved to be a much-needed breath of fresh air at the time, as the band was not just limited to hard rock--Living Colour's sound contained punk, funk, reggae, soul, and freeform jazz. And while most other rock bands at the time were obsessed with partying and fast cars, Living Colour added thought-provoking lyrics to the mix (especially on such selections as "Open Letter to a Landlord").
The album-opening "Cult of Personality" remains an '80s hard-rock classic, while such other cuts as the rocking "Middle Man" and "Desperate People," a remake of the Talking Heads' 'Memories Can't Wait," the downhearted "Broken Hearts," the reggae-tinged "Glamour Boys," and the instrumental "Funny Vibe" are all standouts. All the genre-jumping alternative-metal bands of the late-'90s owed a great deal to Living Colour and this classic debut.
