Vivid is the debut studio album by the American rock band Living Colour, released on May 3, 1988 through Epic Records. It was one of the most popular albums of 1988, reaching No. 6 on the . Billboard 200 chart and certified double platinum by the RIAA. The album is also featured in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. In 2017, Rolling Stone ranked Vivid as 71st on their list of 'The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.

Album · 1987 · 16 Songs. Living Colour's debut, Vivid, proved that it could. Conceived by Vernon Reid-a Santana-influenced guitarist with experience in New York's avant-jazz scene-the band ripped and ran with a palette that took in screaming metal, lyrical flights, various stripes of funk, and even pseudo-Beach Boys pop (see I Want to Know ). It was a dead-serious mission; "Cult of Personality, the band's trademark song, opened with a sample of Malcolm X's voice.

Living Colour is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by heavy metal, funk, jazz, hip hop, punk, and alternative rock. Their lyrics range from the personal to the political, in some of the latter cases attacking Eurocentrism and racism in America. Living Colour rose to fame with their debut album Vivid in 1988

Vivid ‎(CD, Album, RE, RM). Epic.

Following such a tremendous hard-rocking opener, the last thing one would expect to hear from the remainder of the album is diversity. Yet, that is exactly what is served up and makes 'Vivid' such an impressive debut. Providing a fusion of rock ('Middle Man'), funk ('Theme Song'), pop ('I Want To Know'), metal ('Desperate People'), jazz ('Broken Hearts'), punk ('Which Way To America"'), reggae ('Glamour Boys')

Corey Glover can really belt out the tunes, and Vernon Reid is a very under appreciated guitarist. This new version of the album has more songs on it than my original, so that was an added bonus.
