The Action is Go is the fourth studio album by California stoner rock group Fu Manchu. It features new drummer Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and new lead guitarist Bob Balch, replacing Eddie Glass and Ruben Romano, who left to form the band Nebula.
Not that it's unique, yet even with half the band changed from the last time around, the twin-riff action that kicks off "Evil Eye," and The Action Is Go! as a whole, sounds like nobody else but Fu Manchu, somehow. Punk energy, classic rock drive, psychedelic crunch, and heavy-ass grind all at once - really, is anything more needed? From there the new lineup proceeds to kick ass and take names in its own way - music to shake one's very long hair to while cranking it up and driving around

Fu Manchu are the musical personification of a car, and this car is fun to drive, let me tell you. It accelerates quickly, and loudly too, it goes around the turns with ease and precision. This is an awesome car. The So-Cal dudes of Fu Manchu have been doing this hard rock thing since the good ol’ year of 1990. This LP, titled The Action Is Go was released in 97’; it showcases a veteran bunch of hard rock songwriters just doing their thing. Fu Manchu has a sound characterized by a macho looking dude with a mullet, aviator shades and some thick sideburns driving a blue Chevelle smoking 5 cigars at once while going 120 on the highway. This is a demonstration of masculinity. These tracks contain riffs that strike pleasure upon the listener with primordial ferocity, and they do it so effortlessly. In addition to being muscular, it’s also smooth and easy to digest; just how an album should be.
