Default In my head- Black flag

This was Black Flag's last album, and in my opinion their best. Lyrically, some songs are still good ol black flag, but a lot of the others are pretty different, and great. The guitar work on it is phenomenal, never heard anything like it. Kira kicked ass with her bass on it as well. Instead of large amount of heavy angst put into song, this album contained much more. It contained the pay off of many experienced musicians and a metric ****ton of creativity. It also contained black flag's best line-up in my opinion.

I'd rate it 9/10, due to the fact it didn't have the best opening track. But other than that it was great.

This is one of the last Black Flag albums I need to buy! I recently stumbled upon the track, drinking and driving, and I was digging the guitar! But something I tend to not love about the later era Black Flag is how repetitive Henry gets. This shows up (in my opinion) on Loose Nut, quite a bit. And don't get me wrong! I love Loose Nut!! I think it's my second favorite Henry album! Behind My War. And even with that one I don't love the last three songs. Once again it just feels so repetitive! I think that they had gotten into the grove of writing 1 and a half to 2 minutes of lyrics, and they stuck to that later, but stretched out that small amount of material for 3 or 4 or sometimes 5 minutes. My favorite moments with Henry are during the first several tracks on My War. I prefer these over all other Black Flag songs of this era because it feels like a performance rather than a somewhat scripted piece of music.

In My Head is the sixth studio album released by Black Flag. In this album Henry Rollins wrote lyrics for several of its songs. This is one of the best album of Black flag.
