      Disadvantages

      Black Flag's second E.P. (1980).

      An important early release from Black Flag, but nevertheless an insubstantial one, 'Jealous Again' was originally intended to be the band's first full-length album, but ultimately became a mere six-minute E.P.

      Vocalist Chavo Pederast was notoriously unreliable, walking out of the studio during takes, and the material collected here was presumably all that was salvageable from those sessions, released in this shortened form so that the band could move ahead with their next vocalist and change of direction, free of its burden. These are all fairly enjoyable songs, despite none of them being able to boast of particular quality thanks to their basis in raw, simplistic, early punk rock, but it's clear even in the fairly obvious riffs that Greg Ginn is a talented guitarist who will eventually take the band in interesting directions.

      ROBO's drums accentuate Pederast's lyrics in 'White Minority,' the band's tirade against racism, while the equally brief 'Revenge' impresses with a noodling guitar solo, but it's only really 'Jealous Again' and 'No Values' that hold any real interest for managing to last longer than the one minute mark that makes the aforementioned pieces seem rather pointless. The rhythm is consistent throughout, which would be tedious if the whole thing lasted longer than it takes to read even this brief review, and only 'White Minority' slows the pace down ever so slightly to something steadier.

      1. Jealous Again
      2. Revenge
      3. White Minority
      4. No Values
      5. You Bet We've Got Something Personal Against You!
