Henry Rollins' music is TRUE and POWERFUL. These 2 are enough for me to listen to it and like it. There is also certain amount of pain, but it only makes it more true. I might not agree with some minority of the lyrics or topics, might have a different opinion on certain things than Henry but it won't make me stop from saying what he does is great. Power is above pain, if you've got a little optimism. And I can definitely feel my optimism rise when listening to the music.
The music energizes me.

The fifth studio album from Henry Rollins and his band. For me, The best! Like The End of Silence (1992) and Weight (1994), Come in and Burn (1997) is pure hardcore quality. Call it what you will. Hardcore punk. Hardcore Metal. Alternative Metal. Call it all three. I prefer to call it perfection. Rollins blasts out these tunes in his savage style, seemingly exorcizing his pain and anger and hatred and frustration at the world through a microphone. Honest and down-to-earth, Rollins takes hardcore music to the max, giving his all for his fans.

Stand-out tracks: Starv' and All I Want for their pure energy and aggressive riffs, and The End of Something for its depth and lyrics. Whether blasting out on soundtracks like The Crow, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, or Spawn, thrashing it out live, or producing the perfect hardcore studio album, Rollins always delivers. You will either love or hate the Rollins Band - there's really no in-between. They are definitely worth a listen, so Go ahead, get some!

With so much of today's "music" being a limp as it is, Rollins and his band are still making music crushing in it's intensity and breath taking in its power. There is not one weak song on this album (but there are also none as strong as 'liar' - fair enough when you consider that, in my humble opinion, 'liar' is one of the most jaw shattering tunes ever written). The albums high points are, "starve", "The end of something", "on my way to the cage" & "inhale exhale". All of which make you want to run outside and knock the world flat on its ass. If you want more from your music than the prevailing, "ease off-don't think -shut up-and give me your money" then you could do a lot worse than this album. Go on, get a copy - you owe it to your primal instincts!

This is the last of the 'old' Rollins band albums although the decision to change the line up was made much later. 'Come in and burn' boasts standout tracks at every turn 'Starve' is as good as anything they ever did, 'On my way to the cage', 'Shame' and 'the end of something' hit you like a wall of sound. The production by Steve Thompson adds polish and even greater depth to the most 'evil' machine in rock. 'Rejection' puts a smile on the face of carrying a bleeding heart.
One of the reasons ol' angry arse dumped this incanation of his band was that they were too 'un rock' and not one of them owned a Black Sabbath record according to Hank but that is exactly the magic of this band and this album. In short Rollins band up to this point was the most unrock rock band on the planet. The drumming of 'Sugar' Simm Cain refused to toe the generic hard rock line and Melvin Gibbs bass is a monstrous wall of fuzzed up distortion. Chris Hasket again delivers the goods and his guitar shreds and shrieks underneath the bellowing and more 'grown up' delivery of Henry Rollins who was introduced to the concept of 'singing in key' by producer Steve Thompson, he's a long way from the days of 'Hard volume' and 'Silence' but he has no problems in conveying his angst, anxiety and angst.
I wouldn't rate this as the definitive Rollins band album, that honour goes to 'Silence'. Don't get me wrong its an amazing album, it has a pulse and heartbeat that infuses the listener and it rocks out in ways that most bands could never do.
The 'new' incarnation of the rollins band definitely rock but on this album you can hear what its like listening to a machine firing on all cylinders. This is awesome.

A vastly underrated and extremely intense masterpiece 24 Nov. 2003
By Takis Tz. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After having heard this album countless times, and after having heard countless albums in general as record store worker, i'm convinced that Henry Rollins is the victim of his very own reputation in regard to "Come in and Burn".
Rollins is one of the sacred icons of hardcore because of his Black Flag past but of certain solo albums of his as well.
But this is exactly the catch: "Come in and Burn" is not your expected Rollins LP, indeed it's more a metal LP than a harcore one and a stunning one at that.
Rollins is blessed to have a great band behind him here, that delivers incredible recipes for agression and anger and does so in a very innovative way. There are songs here that will easily ignite any moshpit, songs that will move even the most snobby metal fans. "End of something" and "All i want" are easily two of the best songs Rollins has ever sung and "On my way to the cage" is a cue for great metal songs. "Thursday afternoon", "Spilling over the side" and "Saying Goodbye again" are great introspective songs that lack nothing in feeling and intensity.
Did i say intensity? I definately think that this album happens to eb one of the most intense of the 90s. As far as I'm concerned one of the intense period.
Rollins is at his songwritting best if not at his most mature both as a songwriter and performer (I've seen Rollins in 3-4 different tours and he was easily on top of his game while touring "Come in and burn").
One thing that is also certain is that in previous albums (as well as following albums) there wasnt much balance in Rollins's albums. He's always had the ability to write great songs ("Liar" being the overwhelming evidence) but he's also written many indifferent songs that have spoiled the goods overall.
Not so in "Come in burn". This is through and through intense, great and stomping, like a bus going 100m/h with the breaks out of order.
If you do own this album and you've somehow forgotten it on your shelf go and rediscover it. Chances are you'll be puzzled at yourself that you've left it there gathering dust. If you dont own it you are seriously missing out on a fantastic rock album.
A masterpiece.

One of his best! 15 Aug. 2000
By KB - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After reading some of the reviews on this album on this site, I had to write one in defense. I saw a few of 1 and 2 stars on this record and I just don't get it. Are you guys actually listening to the record? This is a brilliant peice of art here. So what if Henry used some distortion on his voice on a couple's called GROWING and MATURING. Henry is being smart about this album and his new one Get Some Go Again...they're different. Listen to Weight and the other previous albums...sure they're great but they are all too similar. Rollins is being smart in the fact that he doesn't want the same sounding record everytime. This is the same Henry Rollins that everyone loves...he's not selling out on Come in and Burn. If you nay-sayers weren't so ignorant you'd hear what he has to say. Also....if Come in and Burn is supposedly his sellout album...why is it that no songs were ever publisized? A lot of people don't even know Come in and Burn exists because it never got a lot of air time. I think you all call him a sell out because you're afraid of change...if you don't want change in music go buy a Rage Against the Machine record. Leave Hank out of the sell out list...he doesn't need you guys. For the REAL Rollins Band fans out there...Come in and Burn is wonderful and a must have.

Dangerously close to a 5! 6 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I withhold a 5 rating only because I'd like to see Rollins Band crank out at least a few more with the current oustanding and progressively tighter lineup. Gives them something to shoot for.
Come In and Burn is an outstanding effort, right down to the CD art, and showcases an already superb unit that continues to improve. Give them two more years of hard work, and you may be looking at the strongest rock act on the planet.
Rollins takes a lot of crap for his limited vocal range and perceived theatrics, but this is mostly sour grapes. Rollins is a beacon of discontent shining much needed light upon the rocks of rote consumer ennui and vapid commercialism. Keep kickin' butt, Henry. Your disaffection is not misplaced. A lot of people just don't like it that you walk around with a big mirror, holding it up where we have to look at ourselves. Have some more fast-food. Make an excuse. Quit because it's hard. Cheat a little to get ahead. Act like it's OK.
Gibbs + Cain co! ntinue to amaze with impeccably timed and inspired nastiness on bass and drums. No better rhythm duo in rock, period, and they're improving with each release, which is even scarier. Inject Haskett's nicely distorted, high-tension counterpoint around the edges, and add Henry. A very potent mix, from a band that matters. Keep cranking, guys. Your fans get it.

Underrated - Rollins Best CD 30 April 2002
By Joseph Bauschek - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Why do reviews of this disk indicate poor songwriting/bland metal? In actuality it one of the finer works of Henry Rollins style of writing. The disk also is 12 good metal songs with excellent bass and Drum R&B mixed in. Why this incarnation died and Rollins found new band members after this, I don't understand. Maybe it was because this worked so well with little commercial success. Ignore the reviews. Buy it! It's great Rollins.

If you'd shut up and listen... 6 April 2004
By DeAnna Factor - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've had this CD for years and played it while driving, while cleaning the house, while doing everything but really listening and paying attention. Listen to the damn words people - Rollins is once again showing up with all the answers. I'm using Inhale/Exhale as my new yoga mantra. I'm requesting that they play Say Goodbye Again at my funeral. Don't worry about the tattoos and the rough exterior, just shut up long enough to listen.
