  • Engineers include: Paul Hamingson, John Aguto, Ed Goodreau.
  • Living Colour's second album keeps up the tradition of Vernon Reid's blazing, Hendrix-worthy guitar playing and Corey Glover's scorching vocals; the band's politics remain as unyielding as its hard rock is unflinching.
  • TIME'S UP begins with a clock ticking behind a wall of noise, but the real bomb doesn't go off until about halfway through, when Living Colour declares that "Elvis Is Dead." "Elvis was a hero to most, but that's beside the point," Glover declares. "A black man taught him how to sing, and then he was crowned king."
  • From other bands, that might sound like hot air, but Living Colour pumps out an articulate sort of hard-rock that suggests it can back up its claims and arguments. This is a versatile hard-rock band, too: "Type" is danceable commercial rock, and "Love Rears Its Ugly Head" is one of the genre's most funky ballads.
