Hot Animal Machine is a solo recording by Henry Rollins before the invention of Rollins Band. Recorded in Leeds, UK shortly after Black Flag split. Their influence is clear with a definite punk rock feel to most songs particularly Black and White and Follow Around. The CD also includes the Henrietta Collins and the Wife Beating Childhaters EP featuring the comical Drive-By Shooting and excellent Queen spoof I Have Come To Kill You. The main album is raw and powerful which is what we have come to expect from Mr Rollins. The punk vibe gets you moving and the angry lyrics fuel the need to rock out. Exciting and dark this album comes up and spits in your face forcing you to hit it. Crazy Lover is a full on cover version that was a live favourite for many years. This album is not a smooth transition to a solo career with a few bum songs like Move Right In (a better version is on the life time CD) and No One. But overall this album should not disappoint taking you from the bottom of your soul to laughing out loud. Play it loud and let it rip you up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Henry Rollins's Last True Punk Albums 4 May 2003
By Twitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Henry Rollins is now no longer the just the lead singer of the legendary and sadly depared Black Flag (my favorite punk band of all time), he now leads the successful and experimental Rollins Band, has recorded quite a few hillarious spoken word albums (a string of T.V. specials based in it followed), and has played parts in many movies. Though he does all of that very skillfully, he has yet to capture the intensity and rawness of his solo recordings "Hot Animal Machine" and "Drive By Shooting E.P." (both make their home on this lovely C.D.). Even though he seems not to have found his niche at this point in time, Henry still shines with this extreme and intelligent record. Besides Rollins's voice and writing ablity, "Hot Animal Machine" contains many memorable riffs but some shakey drum work. The songs on the album range from flat out in-your-face punk music ("Black and White", "Followed Around") to a more experimental sound reminisent of his later years ("A Man and a Woman", "No One"). I for one love this record. It is original and - though there are many references to what his has done and is currently doing - different than anything he has ever done. The best tracks on 'Hot Animal Machine' are "There's a Man Outside", "Followed Around" (my favorite), "A Man and a Woman", and "Ghost Rider" (Suicide cover). Also, the cover of the blues classic "Crazy Lover" is golden.
For the 'Drive By Shooting" E.P., Rollins and Haskett (Chris, guitar) try all sorts of different things. The cool-as-he ll opener 'Drive By Shooting' has a surf rock type guitar riff playing with very ...er...um... differnt lyrics than you might expect. Also, it shows Henry at his vocal peak! The genius "Can You Speak This" is the highlight of the dual album. It is for the most part spoken word, but just brilliant. Also, the message behind "Men are Pigs" would not make that many ment happy (listen to it and you'll know what I mean). As the title implies (well blatantly states), this is the last punk album that Rollins recorded, so all you Black Flag fans will be happy!Though I perfer Black Flag and the Rollins Band to this, it makes a mark on music just the same. A must buy for diehard Rollins fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Rollins Fans 6 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hot Animal Machine, Rollins post Black Flag, a very hardcore vibe. Harcore...Yes, light hearted as well. Hardcore songs such as the original version of Ghost Rider, and funny songs like Driveby Shooting and I have Come to Kill You. All the songs are very well thought out and will catch your attention intantaneously.

3.0 out of 5 stars The comic side of Rollins 10 Jun 2003
By Tara Kelley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Screaming laughter: how else can you react to the 'b'-side of this cd, the work of the fictitious "Henrietta Collins and the Wife-Beating Child Haters"?! This album rocks _and_ has you rolling on the floor, from the bastardized Beach Boys frolic "Drive By Shooting" (complete with "First Gear/Second Gear" homage) to the bass-heavy Queen outtake "I Have Come To Kill You".
Oh - and "Black and White" is pretty good, too. ;)

This is one of the best tongue in cheek efforts by him, not the best cd, but it has lots of great moments and brings back awesome memories for me. Recommended.
