We gave it an A-

Angry white hunk Henry Rollins commands only one real subject (himself) and fewer musical notes, but he’s never spit either out with the drama or clarity of Weight‘s most pulverizing moments, like ”Liar” and ”Divine Object of Hatred.” The guitarist’s heavy-metal cliches never quite rise to frontman Rollins’ or new bassist Melvin Gibbs’ Richter- scale rumbling. Still, a near masterpiece.
