I have just listened to this album again after many years. Upfront full disclosure, I still hate it.
Half of the album is Henry Rollins doing 'edgy' beatnik spoken word, which is toe curling, the other is a bunch of noodling, self indulgent jazz workouts.
I like other Black Flag material, and I'm trying to find some constructive points, but this album has no redeeming features for me.
We could debate, at length, what is and isn't punk or hardcore. However, I think it is a reasonable position to take to suggest that the vast majority of people that would define their musical tastes within the 'punk' and 'hardcore' genres will probably be disappointed with this record.
The above is probably a sweeping statement and may cause offence (that wasn't my intention), and it's only my opinion. But, I guess I'm trying to warn others about what they are buying before they part with their cash.
Have a listen to the download snippets before you invest. Hell, what do I know? You might love it!
