Contrary to the disc's title, there is nothing polite about this new release from the Rollins Band. Fronted by aggressively prolific Henry Rollins and backed by members of Mother Superior, the Rollins Band takes a chainsaw to society, cutting down people who speak first and think later ("Stop Look and Listen"), cities that break your spine ("I Want So Much More"), and never fitting in ("Going Out Strange"). Rollins gives his typical cynical rants, with a couple peeks into the man behind the muscle--"I'm just lonely," he yells repeatedly on "Hello"--backed by the band's usual vigorous take on hard rock. There are some twists on this disc, though, like the funky rhythms on "Your Number Is One" and "Gone Inside the Zero" as well as the electric blues jams on "Hello" and "Let That Devil Out." "Up for It" is the best song on the disc, with a James Brown intro and backup gospel singers adding soul to Rollins's heavy-handed approach. Although the Rollins Band does throw around different musical styles on Nice, overall it's still basically as straightforward as the man who fronts it. It's angry rock & roll from one of rock's angriest men. --Jennifer Maerz

This is what I've been waiting for from the Rollins band. Something seemed to be missing from "Come in and Burn" when the band was falling apart; and from "Get Some, Go Again", when the new band was coming together. I realize after listening to "Nice" what that element was.
Anyone who has read Henry's books knows one undeniable fact. Hank loves music. He's a fan. He adores it, which is why so many of us (us = music fans) identify with him. He has such a love for music that he goes to the extent of trying to make his own. When listening to "Nice" you realize one thing...that everyone involved is having a good time doing what they love. The tracks sound tight, together, but also very natural. Nothing sounds strained or reaching. It sounds like when they made this CD, the band was having a lot of fun, and that makes it easier for the listener to get into the vibe.
"Nice" is full of the Rollins aggression that we expect and love, but there are several nice surprises thrown in, like the funky "Up For It". This is a CD that I think any Rollins fan will be really happy with.

The new Rollins Band album totally brings back the energy and balls of full-on Thin Lizzy/Sabbath/"Funhouse"-era Stooges jams, reverent of the past without sounding dated or contrived. I ran out and picked this up first thing this morning, after having loved "Get Some..", after I (eventually) picked that one up a coupla months ago. Anyone who's the least bit skeptical of checking out Rollins w/new backing band Mother Superior (their new album rocks too, btw), after spinning the disc, you might not feel so nostalgic for the days of Haskett, Weiss/Melvin, & Sim. What's kind of amazing is to watch Rollins continue on an upwards trajectory, not shedding any of the intensity or need to rock, especially when thinking of the spotty history of some of his influences (Iggy Pop comes to mind...) who couldn't maintain this kind of consistency/quality. Can't wait to check this out live. If there's anyone out there still interested in music beyond the disposable flavor of the week on radio/MTV, this is a necessity. Check it out.

Upon hearing that Henry Rollins added organ, horns, and female backing vocals to this album, you'd figure he was finally slowing down. Not by a long shot. This is easily his best album since Weight and certainly his most diverse. The intensity is still there and in full force on the killer opening track "One Shot" and the slow grinding tracks "Hello" and "Hanging Around." The great heavy metal that dominated his previous album Get Some Go Again is still here in the tracks "What's The Matter Man", "Stop Look and Listen", and "Gone Inside The Zero." But amazingly, the songs that work best here are the most diverse. "Up For It" and "I Want So Much More" are definitely a change of pace with the soulful backing vocals and the killer sax solo in the latter. "We Walk Alone" starts out with a repetitive rock riff before going almost completely silent after the solo and then ending with a blues jam which leads right into the killer groove of "Let That Devil Out." Marcus Blake's bass work is great throughout, most notably on the driving riff that carries the excellent track "Your Number Is One." Only the slow grunge of "Going Out Strange" keeps this from being a 5-star album. If you liked Henry Rollins when he was at his most visible in the mid-90's and wondered what he's been doing lately, check this album out. You won't be disappointed.

On "I want so much more" (which has saxophone and ladies singing back up - a new one for Rollins) as with most Rollins tunes - the lyrics are just fab... Listening to this stuff makes me want to do push ups...!Read more ›
