Anarchy has its place!

ImGumbyDamnit

Henry Rollins Band seems to promote a certain amount of "angry young man" styled pro-anarchy. In this, USA, culture today... we need about 90% of our nanny state dismantled! More Anarchy; less tax/spend/regulate! Henry Rollins Band frequently hits the nail on the nail on the head!

This album was absolutely definitive of my time as a rebellious teen! Graduated in '92 and this "tape" lol brings back every wonderful, illegal,drug and alcohol induced sexual and rocking experience i can remember. possibly my favorite album aside from TEN! rollins tells it like it should be, thanks for the good times. rock on

An agreement to males, a quesionaire for females

boogerremember

There's so much I can say about Black Flag, Rollins Band and Henry personally, as I've met him a couple times. But - first off, f*ck the people that don't like him or his bands - they'll never 'get it'. The fans - me and you who like him and his stuff - 'get it'. What I'm REALLY interested in, is whom we don't hear too much from: women. Seriously. Females, girls, women, PLEASE - take a moment to tell us why you like Henry's stuff or not etc................

Heavy Blues

mlenzi

I saw the band on this tour and they were intense and powerful. Andrew Weiss played that two string bass and the sound he got out of those 2 strings was mammoth. This album is the best the band has put out. I like Do It a lot but it is a lot thinner sounding. This record has that special gravity. It is they finally realized their heavy blues sound. I has a little of that Embrace quality to the vocal delivery as well. I wonder if Ian liked this record.

world's heaviest album

phthoggos

This album is devastating in the best way possible. Loud, heavy, tight, intuitive, precise, psychedelic, blunt, emotional, honest, uncompromising. At times it's even subtle. Listening to this album is like a baptism. Then Rollins his mouth. Neck like a paint can, body like a god, voice like a superego, spitting truth like bullets to the brain. The first half is the commercial stuff -- catchy, lyrically less sophisticated, shorter. Good material for a road trip or other mix CD. The second half is the real meat. Lock yourself in a room and crank up "What Do You Do" or "Just Like You" at full volume. Feel the sonics strip away the layers of your consciousness until all that's left is truth. Or, y'know, put it on during sex.

A MUST download!

Far & away the BEST album the Rollins Band ever did. Excellent from start to finish. So glad this has been added to eMusic!

They Say All Music Guide

With the exception of 1989′s Hard Volume, Henry Rollins’ solo profile had been relegated to the minor leagues following his departure from neo-punk stalwarts Black Flag. But with the 1992 release of The End of Silence, Rollins’ first official effort for the burgeoning Imago label, everything changed, partly because The End of Silence was launched with the appropriate bells and whistles normally reserved for well-established acts. Rollins Band was paired with Andy Wallace, an established producer capable of bringing the Rollins vision to fruition, who intuitively placed the singer’s voice at the forefront of the album’s incendiary mix. The dead-on, ultra-separated, compact sound of The End of Silence went a long way toward broadening the singer’s potential audience. Not only is the record a full-blown sonic assault, delivered with typical, deadpan Rollins honesty, it delivered in the songwriting department as well, making it the singer’s most focused record to date. The first single, “Low Self Opinion,” was bludgeoning and menacing, Rollins’ visceral, introspective commentary taking no prisoners. On other songs like “Grip” and “What Do You Do” (which clocked in at just under seven and a half minutes), the singer furthered a vision that launched a hundred imitators. “Tearing,” the record’s excellent second single, was also a boon for the vocalist, benefiting from some substantial airtime on MTV Headbanger’s Ball; it further cemented Rollins’ profile with yet another audience: metalheads. Rollins released other solid records, but The End of Silence remains his best. – John Franck
