When Henry Rollins emerged from the breakup of Black Flag, many thought he couldn’t be successful without guitarist Greg Ginn. If anything, Life Time proves the detractors wrong. With Ian MacKaye of Fugazi in the production chair, Rollins Band was able to distance themselves from Black Flag with a tight, visceral, and sometimes bluesy album. While more abrasive than later Rollins Band releases, this is worth picking up to better understand the progression of Rollins Band’s unique style of emotional funk metal.
