iTunes Review

If your idea of Black Flag is Greg Ginn’s twisted guitar playing, then 2013’s What The… will resonate quite a bit. On this—the first Black Flag studio album since 1985’s In My Head—vocalist Ron Reyes (a.k.a. Chavo Pederast), who appeared on the 1980 Jealous Again EP, returns as frontman, and new drummer Gregory Amoore holds down whatever rhythmic component still exists. This reignition of the classic punk brand was inspired by the recent formation of FLAG—a different band led by former Black Flaggers Keith Morris and Chuck Dukowski. Black Flag had always been a confusing group. Their early punk singles and EPs featured a constant shuffle of lead singers, and after their debut studio album—the classic Damaged—they struggled with albums that often sounded like slow heavy metal. A few great songs along the way and the presence of steady singer Henry Rollins at live shows built their legions. Now, What The… mostly buries Chavo’s vocals underneath a maelstrom of Ginn’s gnarly riffs, which makes the songs plenty loud but incapable of becoming the anthems that old Flag drew up regularly.

Hey sadcorps

Black Flag/Greg Ginn are creating new material. I saw them twice on the summer tour through the South East (HOU and ATL). I also saw them four times in the early to mid 1980's. Don't be so sour, the new music has energy too. The new music from Good For You is excellent also. People, and society change with time. We can't expect the new and current Black Flag to be identical to what it was in the 1980's.

NO HANK NO THANKS

Without Rollins this is simply a poor attempt to get some cash on a iconic 80s institution.

Meh

They have a great sound hear more alternative a bit
less screaming and I really like Ron Reye in black flag I liked him in jealous again and I like him in this the problem is every song sound the same most of them are just the same guitar riff so it's almost impossible to get to the end
What they should have done is make this an ep of the ones that sound the least alike and change the album cover have you seen old ones it was of people smashing a miiror and stuff this looks like something a 9 year old would draw

In many ways, Black Flag was the definitive Los Angeles hardcore punk band. Although their music flirted with heavy metal and experimental noise and jazz more than that of most hardcore bands, they defined the image and the aesthetic. Through their ceaseless touring, the band cultivated the American underground punk scene; every year, Black Flag played in every area of the U.S., influencing countless numbers of bands. Although their recording career was hampered by a draining lawsuit, which was followed...
