Author & Special Guests

With a new Living Colour on the horizon, you figure now would be a good time to revisit a 90s Living Colour release. But we take a detour and dig deep for the debut solo release by Living Colour frontman Corey Glover, and his 1998 album Hymns. Steeped in r&b and soul, this record finds Glover exploring Steve Wonder, Al Green and Sly Stone territory while injecting it with some rock 'n roll swagger. Carving out original sounds while paying homage to those legendary artists, the record wobbles between original and familiar. Does it work as a whole? Tune in to find out.
