that disc was definitely from a few years ago...and as
a huge living colour fan, i felt the need to check it
out...especially after reading about the disc in bass
player mag.  granted, that was a few years ago and i
have matured quite a bit musically in those years, but
as far as i can remember, that jungle funk disc
(unless there was another disc with dw and wc from
living colour) was so terrible that i actually
returned it to the record store claiming it was a
gift.  i do believe that was the only disc that i have
ever returned in my life, and i brought it back the
day i got it!  i would say that the fact that they
disbanded so quickly might back up that it was a
horrendous project.
