All Music Guide - John Dougan
Perhaps the best album to emerge from the quagmire that was early-'80s California hardcore punk, the visceral, intensely physical presence of Damaged has yet to be equaled, although many bands have tried. Although Black Flag had been recording for three years prior to this release, the fact that Henry Rollins was now their lead singer made all the difference.

Extremely controversial when it was released, Damaged endured the slings and arrows of outrageous criticism some reacted as though this record alone would cause the fall of America's youth to become and remain an important document of its time.

    Landmark Album

    Just saying it's pretty good or has some good songs is not enough to describe how great this album is. Every song is a killer blueprint for 80's hardcore and some of the songs like Six Pack and TV Party manage to "rise above" the genre. There's not a bad song in the bunch and as far as being influential it's off the scale. Rollins never made a better record with Black Flag than this one.
