Give a Monkey a Brain...and He'll Swear He's the Center of the Universe

UK LP + 7" - Columbia 473875 1 (LP) + 659462 7 (7"), released 1993

Brazil LP - Columbia 177.342/1-473875, released 1993

Believe it or not, this was the album that finally made me a Fishbone fan.  I had been aware of them for some time, but a good friend of mine made me sit down and listen to everything they had done, starting with this one (which was new at the time).  This album, like the one before, contains some really good songs...they just don't all fit together.  The album marked a real transition from all of the different sounds Fishbone had exhibited in the past into that of an alternative rock band.   I am still a big fan of this album.  However, with my deeper knowledge of the band, I now realize it was a departure from what they had been.  The UK version is split into an LP plus a 7" for no apparent reason.  The 7" contains the tracks "No Fear" and "Nutt Megalomaniac".  The Brazilian version of this record is one of the most difficult Fishbone items to track down.
