Album Review: "Fishbone" By Fishbone (9/10)

Bottles to the Ground

Producer: Fat Mike

Many moons after their last recording, Fishbone push “reset” with NOFX’s Fat Mike at the production helm. This EP marks a new era for the act, but also a return to the past; it’s their first with keyboardist Christopher Dowd since ‘94. “All We Have Is Now” is a reggae-doused mediation on living in the moment. “I Don’t Care” delivers a powerful punk rock jolt, while “Estranged Fruit” explores the band’s socially conscious leanings. The thrill of their reappearance is dampened only by the swift 16-minute runtime. - Andy Kaufmann
