POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

March 23, 1997|Sandy Masuo

* * Rollins Band, "Come In and Burn," DreamWorks. Though these songs pack a stinging, metallic bite and latent funk grind, they also reflect a gritty street-lore sensibility that recalls Lou Reed. What's missing is the surly irony that gives Reed's music its satiric edge. As a result, even Henry Rollins' keenest verbal attacks come off like so much blustery spoken-wordiness.

*

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor) to four stars (excellent).
