This was the last fu manchu album with the "classic" line up of: scott hill: guitar/vocals, brad davis: bass, rubun romano: drums and eddie glass: guitars, (the latter two went on to form the bad ass nebula!)and in my opinion fu manchu's best effort.Thee album it self is a tour de force in heavy-fuzzed out-spacey-retro metal, from the rockin regal begal to the sabbath esq supershooter. The band would never reach this high point again but would come close with "the action is go" the thing with fu manchu is that after a while things start getting a little samey, (which is cool if your into that)and they enjoy being streight ahead rock n'roll which is the reason why rubun and eddie left, but this album really dilivers the goods and there streight up approach really works on this record.I oun all the fu manchu records and this one is my fave no dout and would go well alongside kyuss' sky valley or monster magnets superjudge.
SO WHAT YOU WAITING FOR GO AND BY THIS AWESOME FUZZ N' ROLL RECORD.
FOR FANS OF: kyuss monster magnet the stooges black sabbath
