    50 best albums of 2017
    By ALLAN RAIBLE

    48. LIVING COLOUR – “Shade” On their first album in eight years, Living Colour firmly impress with the politically-charged and blues-flavored “Shade.” Here you find them adding some sludge to Robert Johnson’s “Preachin’ Blues,” showing the modern relevance of Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues” and completely reinventing Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya,” peppering it with statistics about gun violence. There’s a churning sense of beauty to “Always Wrong” and “Who’s That” begins with a stunning guitar work-out from Vernon Reid. Nearly 30 years since “Vivid” and Living Colour are still on fire.
