"The Japanese version has 15 tracks, most of which are live. I had the short version t'll I was travelling and came across the import version. Don't buy this one. Seek out the Japanese version with all of the tracks."
Wretchedly Excessive....In The Best Possible Way!!!!

"A decade later, this EP still burns my ears! The whiplash roar of Vernon Reid's guitar is the dominant sound on this release, and to some listeners it may sound like overkill, but a little overkill can be a blessing sometimes! The scorching, wildly metallic version of "Memories Can't Wait" is downright frightening and a testament to the raw, wall-rattling power these guys generated in concert. This type of power should be harnessed, I'll bet we wouldn't have an energy crisis then! "Talkin' Loud And Sayin' Nothin'" starts well (the band grooves quite well) but gets a little clumsy at the breakdown, and Lead vocalist Corey Glover pretty much butchers Al Green's "Love & Happiness" though the band locks into a walloping stomp that sustains the song well enough. The real star of this show is drummer Will Calhoun who delivers an astonshing solo on the closer "Money Talks" and drives the song at such a furious pace he almost seems to be channeling Elvin Jones! This song must be heard to be fully appreciated. All in all, this is a great release and can stand right along with the other great Living Colour releases of the early 90's."
