After forming in 1978, this was Fishbone's first release. Forget about the short ska phase the music scene went through back in 98-99 - Fishbone was doing it WAY before with this album. And it's not just ska; it's fun, raw, energetic, and humorous rock. "Party At Ground Zero" has historically prooved the success of this album. You've probably heard it on the radio or in the background of some television show or movie. The same can be said of Fishbone - they've lingered just under the nose of mainstream rock and roll (which is probably better for the longevity of the band). People new to Fishbone will probably like this album or "Truth and Soul" best. But this is one party album that belongs in everyone's upbeat collection.
