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.
