From the hard-hitting power chords of “Ain’t Nothing Wrong with That” to the sophisticated jams of “Do Yourself a Favor,” Robert Randolph and the Family Band’s sophomore album, Colorblind, hits all the right spots. Between the infectious beats of the Black-Eyed Peas and the arrangement style of Sly & The Family Stone, Colorblind’s perfected sound features superb mixing and mastering. The guitars attain the right level of distortion while letting the bass rumble and punch. Vocal melodies never trump the mesmerizing instrumentation. Colorblind features the talents of Eric Clapton and Dave Matthews. Though an impromptu instrumental jam can render a song monotonous, Colorblind is a far cry from boring, demonstrating the band’s solid musical depth.
