Complete your Vernon Reid, Masque collection.
This is probably the most diverse set of tunes to land on a Masque album, too. "Game Is Rigged" starts things out with some of the hard rock flourishes you might expect from Vernon Reid, but "Flatbush and Church Revisited" is a straight-up reggae number and "Prof. Bebey" is African highlife, Vernon Reid style.
With Vernon Reid’s inescapable status as the leading African-American metal guitarist, Other True Self is the exact medicine his Black Rock Coalition is asking for. Rather than be content to play in the studio behind a predominantly Caucasian hard rock scene, Reid comes forth on his third post-Living Colour record exploring and progressing his wide-ranging influences. The transitions from punk to metal to R&B are seamless throughout the instrumental tracks, which defies genre at every turn.

Vernon Reid is speaking one recent morning as his band bus idles outside the hotel. The night before, of course, anyone in the crowd would have had no trouble answering his query: He is, among other things, a profound instrumentalist, one of the world’s great guitarists - a player so advanced, in fact, that the estimable Robert Fripp has admitted to aspiring to meet Reid’s standards as a guitarist, musician, and human being.

A member of the Downtown New York scene for many years, guitarist Vernon Reid is better known for his genre-blasting work with Living Color. Still, over the years he has collaborated with such a wide variety of artists including Bill Frisell, David Torn and, most notably, Ronald Shannon Jackson that it is difficult to peg down exactly what he is about; or is it? With Known Unknown, his second recording with his group Masque, Reid demonstrates one of the single largest components of his playing: organized chaos
On listening to Other True Self, it is difficult to see how Mr. Reid has spent his time exploring this question. As an analytical tool, the compact disc format is not exactly foolproof, but it does offer a snapshot of time that one can look at in more depth. Regrettably, he offers no insight into his true self, unless this particular self is disjointed and confused and asks more questions than it answers. As a closet social psychologist, I am willing to believe that is the case. Even more problematic, this particular exploration of the psyche can be a trying experience at times.
