Notes:
After a lengthy legal battle with SST's former distributors Unicorn Records, during which the band couldn't even record under its own name, remaining members Greg Ginn, Henry Rollins and Bill Stevenson started from scratch when the legal dust had settled. This album was recorded before a new bassist was hired. Guitarist Greg Ginn handled bass on the album, under the pseudonym Dale Nixon.

This lp sets the sludge roots. One of the first efforts approaching American Hc and Black Sabbath sounds, evolving into the same lp to different, psychotic and original rhythms.

People either love or hate this record, probably because it sounds so harsh, dark, and serious. I like to think of My War as the painful sound of punk trying to evolve into something more. This album probably had just as big an influence on Hardcore, just without the notoriety of "Damaged". Each track of this album slowly devolves into despair and anger. By the time you reach "Scream", you have a song which itself sounds like it was recorded through one mic in the middle of a room, as to say the recording process itself has broken down as well. In my opinion; a brilliant, misunderstood, and powerful album.
