Synopsis

Amazon.com
Frank Zappa always said it was a good thing he was the ringleader of his ensemble since he would never have passed an audition to play with his bandmates. Henry Rollins suffers from the same fate. Rollins may be a creative and literate individual, but he's a one-trick-pony when it comes to songwriting. The average Rollins tune shifts between two gears: Rollins speaking ominously while his bandmates vamp dark and funky, and Rollins screaming with hatred while his cohorts grind and shred. Fortunately, Chris Haskett and drummer Sim Cain provide Come In and Burn with enough diversity to keep it from sounding trite, unleashing mind-warping chops that range from blackened soul to gut-wrenching noise. --Jon Wiederhorn

Great Cover, Great Songs

(4 out of 5 stars)

"1997's COME IN AND BURN by the Rollins Band seems to be divergent from their previous release, WEIGHT. That album enjoyed great success, so there were some high expectations for this album---and it delivers. I think that this album is a little more musically superior to WEIGHT, and it's more diverse, as well. Songs like Starve, The End of Something, During a City and Inhale Exhale cover a broad spectrum of music, from blues to metal to straight punk. Some fans were let down a little with this release, after the success of WEIGHT, but I think an appreciation for this album's diversity will come out in due time, if it hasn't happened already. This album still has the Rollins signature in your face attitude, and like I said, the musicianship is outstanding. Buy this CD, and you won't be disappointed. Henry's mean look inside the CD sleeve is enough to suggest that this guy still has the attitude!! 8/10"
