Album 365: Day 194 - Fishbone - Chim Chim's Bad Ass Revenge

Chim Chim's Bad Ass Revenge

Favorite tracks: Chim Chim's Bad Ass Revenge, In the Cube, Psychologically Overcast
Sleeper tracks: Sourpuss, Rock Star

I bought this album based on a review and on seeing Phil Fisher in Modern Drummer product ads.  I knew of Fishbone before this record came out but I wasn't into the ska thing.

The record is pretty good and I really liked the first 4 or 5 tracks.  There are some great melodies and riffs going on.  The drumming is cool but the snare gets to be a little too clangy at times.  I always stopped listening after track 7.  The back half of the album got really boring.  I felt the same way when I listened to it this time. There is a lot of nonsense towards the back of the record.  I'll be happy keeping the front songs alive and coming back to the other half in another 10 years.
