3.5 greatTheManMachine | February 11th 17

Overlong, sorta sloppy even for a live record, certainly barebones when it comes to banter -- but Greg Ginn's packed-with-jazz-n-riffs guitar work is seldom sweaty and frenzied as it is here, and other than entirely eschewing 'Damaged' this is pretty great as an extensive expo of Black Flag's many eras; from the brief punk blasts extracted from early-dayz EPs to the tormented sluggish sludge-fests to the purely instrumental freakouts. It opens with one of the hindmost, their very own 'get it or get out' albatross.

Black Flag is one of the many epitome's of D.I.Y music. This album shows it very well. The feedback, the sloppy solos, the aggressive drumming, and Henry Rollin's passionate and self-destructive vocals. Live 84 was recorded at the "height" of their career. Listening to the songs indicates this.
