There's so much that can be said about this album. It's a cornerstone piece of hardcore punk history. This was one of the albums that began the spit into hardcore as its own genre and put Henry Rollins - the world's scariest boyscout - into the spotlight. It's rough and agressive and very socially concious. It's just damn great and I love it. Full marks.

If I could have Half as much Energy as a young Henry Rollins I would probably be the strongest man alive. This album is fast, loud, and relentless. The pace zooms along and screams of southern California and Reagan era anger. This is wild and untamed, damaged. But triumphant waving the black flag of rebellion. Makes me really want to have a TV Party

A real slobberknocker. Funny, hateful, even sad. Who doesn't feel a twinge of sympathy when Rollins garbles something like "… I'm confused, confused... don't wanna be confused... Don't even feel a thing, no... I don't wanna see... But you can't make me long for your life and security"? I checked my book and, yep, Chuck Eddy approves. Though he notes they went rapidly downhill from here. Anyone listening to this with two ears and a brain could tell you that was the only place they were ever heading.

I don't mind punk, and I often don't know the lyrics to songs because often to me the singing is just an instrument. But, if singer's voices aren't instruments and they're just screaming, I have to be able to understand what they're screaming about. And I can't. I can occasionally pick up a sentence here or there, but otherwise it's just the same chord and same drums and same screaming endlessly. It either has to sound good, or it has to have a message. This was neither. Every song sounded exactly the same: Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-THRAAAASH Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-THRAAAASH Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-THRAAAASH Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-Thrash-THRAAAASH Sounded like a garage demo of someone on their 3rd week with an instrument.

Started off enjoyable but quickly got a bit bored as every song essentially sounds the same. If this was an EP just consisting of the A Side it'd easily be a 4. But its not, so its not.

Je tiens a presenter mes plus plates excuses suite a ma review d'hier. En effet, il est bon de savoir que j'écris ces reviews sur mon temps de travail. Je me dois donc, afin de rester un employé modèle aux yeux de mes collègues, de taper ces reviews que vous aimez tant à une vitesse phénomènale. De plus, il est courant pour moi de rédiger ces reviews avec un Cracker à l'épautre dans la main droite, afin de pouvoir me substanter par la même occasion. Il est donc parfaitement compréhensible que quelques fautes de frappes se glissent entre les lignes. J'ai, par dessus le marché, la facheuse tendance, et ce depuis mes plus jeunes classes, de ne pas me relire. Cela m'avait notamment valu de complétement louper mon entrée en matière, lors d'un paragraphe argumenté sur les mémoires de la guerre d'Algérie. Je tiens d'ailleurs à rappeler à tout le monde que sans l'intervention de Pierre Mendès France (dit PMF, a ne pas confondre avec Pierre Menès ou encore Jeremy Menez France), dieu seul sait dans quelle situation se serait trouvée notre belle nation aujourd'hui.

FUCKING FUCK YEAH! This is LA punk right here. This band was one of the original, and most influential punk bands of all time, and you can't tell me listening to any track on this album doesn't make you just want to mosh. while i got into punk later in life, this band helped shape what I liked to listen to and opened me up to bands like NOFX, the Descendents, Rancid, and so many others.

In isolation the album is a solid 4 but she consideration is given to the influence this has had on a lot of the music I love today it's easy to justify the big 5. Imagine the stares going on between the drums and bass during the intro of No More. Accidentally fucking listened to it in shuffle, only the second time I've done that in 243 albums which is a pretty good run. Hate doing that though.

It's at the top or near the top of the list of best hardcore albums of all time. And rightfully so! I completely get people who don't like this type of music (my wife being one of them, she was NOT happy with me when we listened to this one in the car) but for those of us who do, it's a classic album. Although as I'm now in my 40s and sitting down and watching TV with a beer in hand is my idea of a good time, TV Party isn't the anthem it was when I was in my teens.

Rollins gets the glory (deserved) for his explosive delivery, but Ginn and Dukowski were the fuel. Nobody plays like Ginn, not before and not since. Frantic, raw, but with one goofy tune for comic relief, this record was huge for me. Ramones were my intro to punk, Black Flag was the immersion into hardcore.

I wanna give it a 5 just for Six Pack and TV Party. The tension, the fury, the random changes in tempo, the call and response. I had this downloaded (probably over many days) on dial up from audiogalaxy, i think it had random glitches from where the torrent didn't completed... just added to the DIY sound. Anyway back to the album ... nostalgia for my teenage punk years probably biases my rating here, yeah its super influential, but would I personally listen to it much anymore? not so sure

Nos tocaron dos de punk seguidito, pero acá éste suena más hardcore, más "crudo". Y aunque el mood es prácticamente invariable a lo largo de todo el disco, creo que justo suena a lo que se espera según un imaginario pank. Tengo mis favs: "Six Pack", "Police Story" y "Room 13", aunque no es un disco al que vaya a regresar seguido. 8.5/10

I think this album, and having listened to some Dead Kennedys earlier in the year, has given me more appreciation for hardcore punk. I've always found it a hard genre to listen to because there's often not much to latch onto except for the speed and anger. Obviously the speed and anger are the point, but that doesn't always make for an enjoyable listening experience. The bitter sarcasm that drives this album is very interesting. The songs are a clear rejection of the world around the band, but the band is often focusing their songs around an (albeit very ungenerous) interpretation of the cultural perspectives they reject. The version of themselves that they present is one of emotional turmoil. I like the energy of this album. I'm not sure how often I'm going to come back to it, but I can see why it was so influential to young punks in the 80s 4/5

A reasonable punk record engineered to be loud and somewhat obnoxious. Short length tracks make way for urgency with allegro tempos and linear arrangements - 'Damaged' lays walls of overdrive guitars and hard-hitting drum patterns that ultimately incites strong dissentious emotions. While the production is short of modest for a 1980s album, the lyrics remain straightforward and upfront, though this makes the record simpler than it appears to be.

Listening to this made me want to listen to more punk. I appreciate the 15 songs coming in at just about 35 minutes. Not sure if it was intentional, but I found so many lines laugh-worthy. In Six Pack, "what do they know about partying or anything else and in TV Party, "tv's broke what are we gonna do, we're gonna miss our favorite show." I want to become a rock star so that I can cover TV Party only so that I can sing real loud, "No TV Party tonight." There's also a line in the dark, very dark Room 13 that I love, "as I'll see to it." Somehow it seems very Victorian for a punk band talking about death. I had no idea that Henry Rollins had just started as lead singer with them in 1981, while making this album.

I first heard Damaged when I was 18, which seems about the right age. But I perhaps wasn't angry enough to get the full impact of Rollins' ire. I'll tell you what though - change "TV Party" to "Internet Party", update the shows to website and nothing much has changed. We got nothing better to do.

Despite them inventing it, I have never considered Americans to have ever really understood punk, or the potential of punk. Except for the Stooges and a fistful of others, American punk bands have never seemed that interested in the aesthetic liberation punk has offered. The Ramones, for instance, arguably limited punk by establishing a mannerism of punk, whereas the Sex Pistols concocted a philosophy of punk that emboldened a thousand and one British weirdo acts to philosophise further and stretch the possibilities of what music could be, from ABC to XTC. Or we have Nirvana trying to put punk's experimentalism at the centre of the American mainstream, but only resulting in so many whining gits writing so many feeble grungy dirges about stubbing cigarettes out on their wrists. No scene demonstrates this blinkered American take on punk than hardcore. Rather than exploring what they could do, the hardcore formula of "rough punk, played fast and heavy" not only became the creed of American punk for a decade, it became the standard definition of US punk: I once read an American review of Never Mind the Bollocks that insisted it wasn't a punk album because the songs were too long. That's the sort of warped mindset we're dealing with here, kids. (By the by, this pitiful American reverence towards the supposed edicts of a genre extends far beyond punk. How many rhythm and blues acts, pop groups, jam-bands and rappers act as if avoiding deviation from their genre's standard makes them the true inheritors of the craft? And will they ever realise that nobody cares?) So I worry that perhaps I'm approaching this album with a mild prejudice, which is that whenever I listen to hardcore punk, I feel disappointed that they didn't follow the British example of rejecting every example, and instead they just played a bit of punk. This is not to say I dislike hardcore punk: I don't. But it occasionally feels like the teenagers lobotomised themselves. Anyway, Damaged. It's a good hardcore punk album. Some of the tracks are a bit humorous, to its credit. I don't see this as a crippling existential howl at all, I see it as a good hardcore punk album. There are hardcore albums I prefer (e.g., Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables), and ones I like less (e.g., Milo Goes to College). Is there much more to say than that? Maybe you could say phrases like, "Oh, but they added mini guitar solos to the repertoire of punk," but that just means you're a trainspotter. Actually, I'll run with that. If your favourite form of punk is hardcore, you're basically a trainspotter of punk, writing down the BPM in your notebook as you slamdance. The reason you're straight-edge is because you've a thermos of weak lemon drink made for you by your mum. This album gets a clear four, but giving it a 5 marks you as spotty and bronchial. Also, I was reading about Black Flag before writing this review. After this, they turned to the Grateful Dead for inspiration. As much I should cherish such growth beyond hardcore, I'm not exactly squealing with glee at Black Flag harking to the Grateful Dead. Is there any better point to illustrate that hardcore punk is punk for trainspotters?

No offense to Darby Crash, but this sounds like a more polished Germs. It's angry and free, with Henry Rollins saying whatever comes to his mind. It's anthemic with plenty of lines to scream along to, a bit of order among the chaos of spoken word lyrics. "TV Party" is the best example of this, with the clear back vocals, chants, and clapping. His lyrics are unexpected and fun cause you never know when he's done. There are breaks where you think the song's over but then he just keeps going. But the greatest strength of this album is the distortion-heavy doom-like instrumentation. Each songs starts off almost sounding like a Black Sabbath song, but then speeds up out of control, and the crashes really set this apart with chaotic bangs. Out of 15 songs, only 4 of them are over 2.5 minutes (and only 1 of them are in the first 10), so it really flies by and keeps it interesting thinking what the hell he's gonna complain about in the next song. Loved every song, but the energy dies down in the last third (which does fit with the slow and eery starts of "No More", "Life of Pain", and "Damaged I"), which is why I see so many other bands like Minor Threat just settle with EPs.

My punk experience is admittedly low (and hardcore punk even lower than that), but my understanding and impression is that this album is a pillar, one of the goats. Not at all difficult to hear why. I've heard it before, and I'm a big fan of this one. Opens with a true classic in "Rise Above," and just maintains a caustic edge throughout. It's angst and rage expressed with frightening, piercing clarity. You know these guys hate everything. My absolute favorite track has to be "TV Party," not just because of how funny and angry it is about the stupidity of television watchers, but because it's a genuinely catchy song, which makes you think if these punks were stupid sheep instead of the free-thinkers they are (please bear with my layers of irony here), they could make a decent rock record for the masses to swallow with ease. But they aren't that, man! They're fucked up in the head, they wanna smash mirrors and kick fire hydrants or whatever. I love it, what a rush. I can only imagine how liberating it would have been to discover this album as an angsty teen in the early '80s. Shout out Henry Rollins for this one. Favorite tracks: TV Party, Rise Above, Six Pack, No More, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Life of Pain. Album art: Iconic for sure. Rollins punching a mirror, what more do you need? It gets everything across, this album sounds like a group of guys trying to shatter the world as we know it. 4.5/5

Hardcore punk classic. Prettty essential, if only for "historical" reasons. There are not many albums in that overall genre in Dimery's list anyway (Minor Threat's *Out Of Step* is included, and I think Bad Brains are, too). So it would be a crime to take *Damaged* out of it. Number of albums left to review: 729 Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens: 133 Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: 65 Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): 74

Rough and dirty, but also fun and energetic. I liked the energy of the album, but on the other hand I didn't feel like it had a lot of really memorable songs aside from Rise Above and TV Party. It's pretty well-executed for hardcore punk, but maybe just not exactly one of those albums you sit down and listen to while working. At least not until we graduate from 'standing desks' to 'workplace mosh pit', which would DEFINITELY have to be post-COVID

-Great bass/drum intro on "No More" -Great Guitar intro on "Rise Above" -Overall, the guitar and drums and bass are all fantastic across the album, but I'm just not a fan of the singer. I don't think it is the not conventional singing style, but just that there is little change in basically any way throughout the whole album. There is minimal change in pitch, style, or even volume, and that kind of drags everything else down

“Damaged” by Black Flag (1981) Fully aware that this review will be ignored by a majority of readers, allow me to lament that poverty from the start. Here’s an album that is punk on steroids. If you want to understand punk, this would be a good place to start. It marks the emergence onto the musical scene of lead singer Henry Rollins (only 20 years old at the time), whose interpretive intelligence and vocal athleticism are on full display in this album. Passions are well harnessed into expressions of: mockery (“TV Party”), pathetic complaint (“Thirsty and Miserable”), despair (“What I See”), depression (“Depression”), rage (almost every song on the album), and various other angst-ridden states of the heart. In terms of the underlying psychology of this collection of songs, when one burrows through the naivety and overwrought sense of seriousness, one lands on some relatively potent commentary: Black Flag counterposes chaotic youthful volition (supercharged by emotional intensity, beer, and who-knows-what other mind-altering substances) with the standard obstacles to their momentary juvenescent happiness. They are excessively intense. But I am forced to call to mind the fact that never in the history of calming down has anyone ever calmed down by being told to calm down. In “Room 13”, we doubt the sincerity of “I rely on your judgment/I've got none of my own/Don't know what I'm doing/It's hard to survive/Don't know if I can do it/I need to belong”. But we applaud the transparency. In “Damaged II”, likewise, we hear “I’m confused. Confused. Don’t wanna be confused. Don’t even feel a thing. No I don’t wanna see. But you can't make me long for your life and security. . . . Stupid feelings, Stupid illusions.” Doesn’t it make you want to sympathize, to seek to understand? If this had been expressed by a troubled child (and it was), would you not be moved to compassion or perhaps join in the misery? What would Jesus do? The rhythm is fast and energized, with instant tempo changes (very difficult to pull off with a combo) and unconventional time signatures that nevertheless make sense. There’s nothing random about these innovations. One could dance to these tunes only if one defines ‘dance’ as people basically bumping into each other. It was and they did. The cover photo depicts Henry Rollins driving his fist into a mirror. Now there’s something on which to reflect. Weaknesses on the album include compositional atonality in lead guitar solos, subdued lead vocal in the mix, and unison backing ‘vocals’ (actually yells) of low quality. It’s by no means perfect. But there’s no doubting that this production is musically expressive. It is very well done, within its genre. I nod my head unsteadily. And I am concerned. 3/5

The highs are higher on the first side, no doubt, but I can't help but notice the lack of musical variety. The last seven songs give so much more in terms of texture and tempo variety, and the emotional beats seem much more realized. Influential sound, recording interestingly, worth my time, but not mind-blowing.

Gimme "If you need a hero, just look in the mirror", well that's a lie, you just discover that after being broken. Fall into pieces but not from a puzzle, it's a damaged person who can't control its feelings and emotions, lost all the way down, confused and wasting the energy in poison. It's the contrast of working in who you're interested to look like or being yourself for a single little time, media telling the standards and stuff like that, well we consider that differently. But as life's not a bed of roses, use its perfume and hang out with your friends, raise your black flag for the first time, as in 1981 the band took that attitude, leaving a legacy for generations.

This was a very angst-y album, Porto-thrashy. This reminds me of my music taste a couple years ago, I was into thrash and this reminds me of the likes of Anthrax but it doesn’t really speak to me now. If I listen to thrash these days it has to be when I’m in an increasingly specific mood. The guitar on this album was nice. I think I’ll go for a very middle of the ground 2.75 stars here. It’s like thrash metal - it’s got the raw power which attracted me the but not as much technicality which appeals to me now.

This LP should be used as a form of birth control. ‘Cause no one is going to want to conceive and give birth to a bunch of kids as, well, damaged as Black Flag. ‘It feels good to say what I want. It feels good to knock things down. It feels good to see the disgust in their eye. It feels good and I’m gonna go wild (‘Spray Paint’).’ With a brutal rhythm section, the whirling dervish trio of drummer Robo, bassist Chuck Dukowski, and rhythm guitarist Dez Cadena barely hanging on to the beat by the tips of their fingers and playing as if their lives depended upon it, supporting the manic maniac lead guitar playing of Greg Ginn, and the psycho desperate vocals of Henry Rollins, 'Damaged' is a parent’s worse nightmare come true. Perhaps a synopsis of the song’s themes, in order, might be the most helpful way to communicate what the listener is in for: Side One: 1) Rise Above… the shitty status quo. 2) Spray Paint… the walls of the stupid society. 3) Six pack… beer helps, more than women. 4) What I See… is all fucked up. 5) TV Party… and beer is preferable to being outside. 6) Thirsty and Miserable… and always wanting more, beer. 7) Police story… we fought the law, too, and the law won. Side Two: 1) Depression… got a hold on me. 2) Room 13… is keeping me alive. 3) Damaged II… and my stupid illusionary feelings. 4) No More… I won’t take it. 5) Padded Cell… which is the wretched plane earth. 6) Life of Pain… complete with aching muscles from digging your own grave, and taking my feelings with you. 7) Damaged I… aahhhhh. Whew, that last one, in particular, features Rollins’ vocals that can best be described as ripping raw bloody flesh off the bones with one’s teeth. When he sings(?) ‘aahhhhhh…’ it sounds, 'he' sounds positively demented. Which is why Black Flag and 'Damaged' is probably best approached and handled: with extreme caution, and from a distance, close to the exit door in case of the real possibility that someone, maybe the whole band, snaps. And they’re very, very close. Like a pack of cornered rabid raccoons. But one would need to be a little feral to pull of this kind of hardcore punk and ‘free’/avant garde jazz hybrid. Several of the songs featured changing time signatures, free time signatures, and physically abused time signatures. Loose, seriously loose, but not sloppy, per se. This LP has been heavily rehearsed, especially for punks, but afterwards spun around and pummeled by the members of the band like a bat to a piñata, until all the musical candy comes gushing out from the bowels. If you like that kind of thing in your music, and I do, then you’re in for a good time. And don’t blink or you’ll miss it. I don’t think there’s much of middle ground here. You’re either gonna dig this, or run away with both hands tearing at your hair and screaming bloody murder; which, coincidentally is what those of us who do love it are doing in the mosh pit ourselves anyway, so it doesn’t really matter, does it? It all boils down to the same reaction. The only real reaction to Black Flag.

3.3 + A lot of fuss has been kicked up about these guys and I dutifully gave them their due. I read Henry Rollins’ memoir “Get in the Van” and listened to their records. To me, it’s another case of a band’s backstory being more compelling than their actual output. Not that this record is bad. I appreciate the DIY aesthetic and the guitar work is on point. But as a personality, Rollins is pretentious and abrasive and defaults to a holier-than-thou mindset. All this would be fine if he had the vocal chops to back up the attitude. Though he grunts clearly and enunciates his words to make his meaning understood, I find the message two-dimensional (see “TV Party”). While I like their story, their work ethic and their branding, Black Flag’s music is overrated.

I like early Black Flag, but I've always thought Damaged marks the point where they stopped being good. But I haven't heard it in a long time, so I listened to it again today, and my opinion didn't change. There are some decent songs here, but even those come with caveats. Rise Above is nice, but it sounds very similar to We Must Bleed by the Germs , which is a much better song (and band). Six Pack is fine, but I prefer the EP version. On the other hand, there are some pretty fucking bad songs here, like TV Party. What were they even thinking with that one? I also didn't like the long and/or slow songs like Damaged I and II that were pretty hard to listen to and are a sign of what was to come, which was nothing good.

Black Flag’s Damaged is like the pilot episode of your favourite TV show. The cast is missing a key member or two, the writers haven't found their stride and it was shot independently before being picked up so the whole thing feels raw - but there's a foundation for something great. The proto slacker tunes like Six Pack and TV Party experiment with apathy to subvert the overly serious conventions of the east coast scene - laying a foundation for bands like Descendants to follow. More influentially Rise Above can be credited as being one of the first hardcore jams, a genre I still love today. That's about where the good things end for me. This album was abrasive to the point of being unlistenable, especially the second half. Sometimes, playing as hard and as loud as you can works, but mostly it doest.

Great album, no holds barred fun and the antithesis to the cause-driven hardcore that dominates the genre. That being said, the production is pretty ropey, with the drums sounding particularly naff. Ginn's guitar does sound feral, the bass is nice and raspy and Rollin's vocal delivery flawless - though the levels and compression makes for a difficult listen. This does feature some of my favourite songs, namely: Police story, depression and rise above.
