  1. Living Colour has solidified their standing as one of the most consistent, original and important bands America has produced. There’s little left to say: kick the chair out of the doorway and get this essential album into your life, immediately.
  2. Reid's playing is a thrill throughout; his solos sound like a mind blown wide but never to pieces.
  3. What can be viewed as a weakness can also be seen as a strength, and for the most part one can conclude that The Chair in the Doorway is a successful return to form.
  4. Uncut
    Their fifh album reveals no radical stylistic shift. [Mar 2010, p.89]
  5. Mojo
    No boundaries are being broken this around, but Living Colour still hold their own. [Jan 2010, p. 102]
  6. The band's first release since 2003, "The Chair in the Doorway," is too scattered -- and occasionally silly -- to make a serious re-impression.
  7. The limited palette and relentless attack wind up a little wearying, especially when married to brickwalled masters.
