In My Head is the sixth studio album released by Black Flag. Many fans[who?] consider this record to be perhaps their best album musically.[citation needed] This is a sentiment shared by Kira Roessler, who played bass on the record, according to the biography of "Spray Paint the Walls, The Story of Black Flag" written by Stevie Chick (The sentiment in question being located on pages 374-375 of the aforementioned book).[citation needed] } It was released in 1985 on SST Records, and was their final album before their reunion in 2013. The CD reissue adds three of the four songs from the I Can See You EP, replicating the original 1985 cassette release which came out concurrent to the LP.
