"The Chair in the Door", nuevo CD álbum de Living Colour

En una mirada rápida al pasado, al mencionar Living Colour nos recuerda aquel popular temas "Cult of Personality" de su LP debut "Vivid" de 1988.

La carrea de estos rockeros de color ha sido inconsistente ya que en 1990 sacaron un álbum, luego otro en 1993 y no hubo noticias de ellos sino hasta el 2003 y de ese entonces, ahora nueva vez. Este si se quiere regreso, les agenció una buena recepción por parte de su base de seguidores y dentro del Top 200 de la Billboard, chartió 159.

El álbum cuenta con 12 temas, siendo el último un 'hidden track' (tema escondido) con un título poco convencional: "Asshole" y el track previo a éste es un espacio vacío de unos cuatro minutos y medio.

Se destacan (todos bien potentes) los tracks "The Chair", "DecaDance", "Young Man", "Behind the Sun" y "Hard Times".

La portada de este álbum me acuerda "Introspective" (1988) de Pet Shop Boys y curiosamente ese espacio vacío, el silencio antes de "Go West" del álbum "Very" (1993) de los mismos PSB.

"100 Hits: 80s Dance", un espectacular box set de 5 CDs!!!

Bueno si usted es como yo, que gusta de la música dance, nos hemos salvado por partida quintuple!.
