Another heaping Fu Manchu serving of BORECORE. Despite a pretty interesting rift of songtitles, The Action Is Go displays about as much vigor as a 90 year old in a coma. The nasal, lazy vocals ring of utter tedium, and the post-Sabbath stoner ditties enclosed meld into a sleepy and seemingly endless drone of numbing monotony, evoking a sort of bland, songless, simpering Kyuss. Producer J. "White Zombie" Yuenger seems to have an ear for crap, and Fu Manchu simply fall in line.
