Product Description

Product Description

Slip It In followed My War almost immediately, and while a bit better (fewer mega-volume angst drones), the band still wanders a bit, experimenting with expanding the breadth of hardcore into a newer hard rock/punk sound. This is especially true of Greg Ginn's guitar playing, which was becoming increasingly avant-garde and exciting. Rather than simply coughing up one clich d solo after another, he wandered harmolodically up and down the fretboard as a jazz player like Blood Ulmer would, making the material more interesting than what most Black Flag-influenced bands were playing.

There are two ways to write a review. One way is to review an album on its own merit, the other is to compare it to other stuff that the band has put out. If you compare this cd to the likes of "damaged" and "the first four years" you would definitely see a difference in style, it follows on nicely from the extremely aggressive my war LP, albeit without the aggression. However i do believe that the guitaring is better, especially the solos on "slip it in". based on its own merit, the album is a shining example to the commercial rubbish that many of todays fans would call rock.

At the end of the day a Black Flag record is is a Black Flag record - everyone will have ther favorite for really odd reasons, they are such an important band yet their name seems far larger than the influence of their music. Anyway Slip It In is not my favorite but it is the first record of theirs I heard - my good buddy Ben bought it for my 15th birthday, for a good while it just plain confused me, did Greg Ginn really intend to have the worst guitar sound ever? I mean they had moe in common with Jazz music than hardcore, its complex stuff. Yet in saying that this is from my point of view the most 'pop' record they did side one is so catchy it just plain annoys me now - hence it not being my favorite - but Slip It In is a great place to start hearing this important band during their most innovative period. Go buy...

This is where Black Flag's rapid decline really began. After the masterpiece pairing of Damaged and My War and the slightly self indulgent but worthwhile Family Man came this, the first in a trio of stodgy hard rock albums which show Rollins and Ginn doing what they do worst ("poetry" and tedious noodling respectively).

Buy damaged, My War, Family Man, the compilations The First Four Years and Everything Went Black, and Live '84. That's more than enough Flag to satisfy you without bothering with this.

How can people bag on this album? My personal favorite 'Flag LP 3 Jan. 2006
By Stephanie Sandlin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Slip It In.

Ok, I'll admit something here. I'm perplexed how people can bash on this Flag record. Out of all the Flag albums I've heard and had at various times this is the one I come back to the most.

I recently encoded to WAV my vinyl copy I bought at Tower Records in Bellevue, WA in 1986 (oh the memories). I listened to the whole damn thing tonight while working out. I have to give it rave reviews. This album still rocks. Its almost as some other reviewers have said a mix of punk, hardcore and maybe a skosh of metal in there. I love the energy, the attitude and swagger. ( Its also a great album to do cardio to, but thats another subject.)

I think the flow of the record is great. The first three songs bust out the gate and don't slow down till Rat's Eyes. Then a brief reprieve and off you go again.

Favorite Tracks:
Black Coffee
You Think You're Evil
Obliteration (interesting song progression)
Slip It In
The Bars

This is a long way removed from Damaged, which is great on its own. My War I can't get into as much, sludgey and the material isn't as ferocious. Plus, I don't think that album flows as well and the band doesn't seem to being into it as much.

Seems there are factions of fans who like specific angles of 'Flag. Chalk me up as one who thinks Slip It In is one of thier top tier albums. Fusing punk, hardcore, 70s hard rock and charging hard makes it thier most complete album. It does what few artists dare to do - fuse genres. It works brilliantly here.

Would recommend this and Damaged as a introduction to 'Flag.


Fun sidenote to this LP - Etched in the vinyl after the last song on each side is a message:
S1: "Only The Steaming Liquid of Caffeine... Stark ... Starker"
S2: "And Walked Out Into the Bright Light without Sunglasses"

I don't know if the CD has this. Thought I'd throw that one out there.

Very underrated and the last essential Black Flag album. 8 Aug. 2005
By Ferguson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm not sure if it's the best Black Flag overall but it's certainly one of them.

There's a couple of things i've never understood about how 'Flag fans perceive this album. One is how it isn't considered up there with "first four years", "damaged" and "my war" when it's easily as good as any of them and the other is that people rag on this but love "my war" which i find mind-boggling as "my war" is far more sludgey and complex whilst this is actually quite, ya know, hardcore. Listen to this and "my war" together and then tell me which is the most straightfoward hardcore album. Black Flag are often described at being the point in rock history where The Stooges met Black Sabbath and if "my war" is their most 'Sabbath influenced album then "slip it in" is the Stooges album as it's the most sexual album the 'Flag made. That's not to say the Black Sabbath influence and lurching tempo changes found on "my war" aren't here, they are on songs like "obliteration" and "rats eyes", but there are also vicious hardcore songs like the title track, "black coffee", "the bars" and "my ghetto" here too. It's just that the band could really play now (Kira and Bill Stevenson are the best rhythm section they ever had and Greg Ginn in his prime is a true heir to Ron Asheton from The Stooges) and weren't interested in making minute-long-thrashes anymore.

Don't get me wrong, i agree that the later albums "loose nut" and "in my head" are both pretty horrific (although there are demo and live versions of songs from both which are ferocious like the '82 demo of "modern man") and while i do have a slight fondness for the "process of weeding out" e.p i can see why yer garden variety hardcore fan was disgusted by it and would have to admit that it is a prog/jazz-rock noodle-fest. "Slip it in", however, is still Black Flag at their best and is the last truely essential album they made.

Black Flag - 'Slip It In' (SST) 15 May 2007
By Mike Reed - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've never been the biggest fan of hardcore, but I do know a great record when I hear it. 'Slip It In' is the band's third effort that was originally released in 1984. Tunes I found myself playing a lot off here were the title track "Slip It In", the in-your-ugly-*ss-mug "Black Coffee", "Rat's Eyes", "The Bars" and the body slammin' classic "My Ghetto". This is the sort of music that lures you to drive around at 3am and smash up every mail box (the ones they have by the end of the driveway) within a two mile radius. Line-up: Henry Rollins-vocals, Greg Ginn-guitar, Kira Roessler-bass and Bill Stevenson-drums. Should appeal to most fans of Misfits, the Germs, Minor Threat and Dead Kennedys. Believe I saw guitarist Greg Ginn's post-Black Flag trio, Gone play an actual in-store appearance. Wasn't just a three song mini-set, it was like a 45 minute show that had nearby tenants calling the police. You KNOW you've had a great time when that happens. Highly recommended.

Furious Flag 17 May 2005
By Chet Fakir - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The best Flag album. They grew musically a great deal from the hardcore days of Damaged and in doing so melded punk, metal and hard rock into this freakishly powerful electric blast. The title track is propelled by Kira Roesler's manic bass and Bill Steven's drums. Ginn's guitar is crazy, great leads. Next is another Gregg Ginn musing on betrayal while getting teeth grinding wired: Black Coffee - what an overcaffinated wind up to Wound Up. "I get so wound up!!! To feel so let down." I don't know how many times I screamed along with the cathartic release of that song. Lots of variety on Slip It In, from the rave up Bars (one of the best Flag songs ever) to the slow grinding and aptly titled instrumental Obliteration. Greg's guitar is fantastic throughout, I love his careening f the rules leads. Rollins was the perfect foil to Greg Ginn's over the top insanity. His delivery is unrelenting KEN mode (Kill Everyone Now) When these guys were on they were an unstoppable force of nature. This album gives some indication as to what they were capable of live. Not everything is great, Rat's Eyes and My Ghetto are just ok, but the power of the other songs makes up for their shortcomings. Slip It In is the best album Black Flag ever released.

SLIP IT ON IN!!YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! 4 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A good Black Flag effort!! I love the instruments in this, Kira is an awesome bass player, what can I say about Greg, it's already known that he's one of the best. Of course Descendents leader Bill Stevenson is good on the skins! The angry singer Rollins too! But there are problems on this like, some songs just run too long. You have to be in the right mood to listen to the whole thing. I can see how Stephen Egerton(ALL,Descendents) really liked this album, he uses some of the styles of riffs Greg Ginn played on here.
