Much of Fishbone’s charm comes from an ability to jump musical genres without losing the groove. Not to say that the septet does everything equally well: Fishbone should go easier on the nondescript power chords (”Servitude”) in favor of the noisy ska-funk (”Properties of Propaganda”), and serve up more attitude (”Drunk Skitzo”). But even if you can’t swallow all of Give a Monkey a Brain and He’ll Swear He’s the Center of the Universe, you’ll be intrigued.
