Rumour : Living Colour to open for Deep Purple in January?

Metal Refuge review of Collideoscope
Review by: A. M. Sefic
It took them long enough, but at last they are here giving us great music once again. Living Colour's first release in ten years called "CollideØscope" rocks you hard, eases your mind as well, and talks about some of the horrible events in recent history.

This band demonstrates through their own unique brand of bluesy rock just how much of range they have! From the first song on the disc called "Song Without Sin" which is one of the more harder rocking tunes, to "Flying" the mellowest song on the disc, these guys provide a little something for nearly everyone. Their version of AC/DC's "Back In Black" is very well done. It does not sound exactly like the original artists of this song, but instead its done the Living Colour way. The guitar work is phenomenal, and the screaming vocals are dead on style wise. Also included on this disc is cover of the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows." I could not have believed that this song could actually be improved on, but in this case, it has!

"Operation Mind Control" has a definite garage band vibe to it, but without the annoying high pitched whiny vocals normally found in this type of music. "Nightmare City" has a smooth reggae vibe to it. "Heavy Roller" is a sexy blues tune. "Nova" is a psychedelic sounding instrumental with excellent use of the bass, drums, and electronic mixing.

CollideØscope is a definite easy listening record that you can take out on a sunday afternoon while enjoying the sunshine. Welcome back boys!
