Can't say I loved it, but it wasn't long enough to feel too badly about it either.

I've never been more convinced I didn't like something after giving it 3 listens. It's even worse than punk. Somehow it got more childish, more outputting, less mature, and even less musically interesting than its predecessors in it's genre who it's not even worth my time to fully type out. Not for me!

Great bass tone. Sounds a bit like a RAT or something on the bass fuzz.

Getting drunk and smashing a mirror.

Angry, raw, emotional, and even funny. Will leave you with a bloody nose, but intense admiration for the work.

One of the best hardcore punk albums ever. Angry, aggressive, and noisy. Black Flag at their best.

Classic punk album, and one of the definitive documents of the 80s hardcore scene. The guitar tone is among the greatest (as well as angriest & nastiest) in all of punk rock.

Angst ridden and fast. Considered one of the greatest punk albums of all time, Damaged provided an expression to youth who were angry at the world and needed an outlet for it. This album provides the lyrics and the music for that angst and it does well.

Pure, unbridled emotion. They say music is what feelings sound like, and there is a ton of feeling on this album. Most of the feelings are negative (anger, hate, depression) but there is enough humor and levity (notably on classics like TV Party and Six Pack) to not make it a downer.
