Muze PNote Any dude who grew up in the '70s can tell stories about driving around in a van with illegal substances and a couple of chicks, but they can't quite recreate the experience like Fu Manchu. KING OF THE ROAD presents the party-hearty side of Sabbath, riffs heavy as lead and reeking of ganja smoke, but with deep grooves that keep things rolling along. "Boogie Van" is exactly the kind of love song to an automobile that people have been writing since rock was invented, and "Drive" is the perfect soundtrack for a car chase with local cops.

Producer: Fu Manchu; Joe Barresi

Engineer: Fu Manchu; Joe Barresi

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (3/16/00, p.73)
- 3 stars out of 5 - "...straight-ahead, heavy stoner rock....[favoring] good-time rhythms and in-your-face hooks....Meet the ultimate desert-rock car album."

Spin (3/00, pp.148-50)
- 7 out of 10 - "...their best yet, and their best sounding...laying on lotsa low end without overshadowing Fu's roaring guitars....offering as much of a pure physical vroom as a well-tuned motorcycle..."

Entertainment Weekly (2/18/00, p.86)
- "...pop songs that sound like an 18-wheeler trying to run you over. Dude rock at its finest." - Rating: B

CMJ (1/24/00, pp.23-24)
- "...[Its] thick-as-peanut-butter, Goliath sized riffs...will make you feel like you're cramped in a boogoe van with a couple of buddies and an ample supply of weed....Fu Manchu [are] the great kings of both the road and the bong."

NME (Magazine)
(10/23/99, p.37)
- 8 out of 10 - "...a damn near perfect record from what must be damn near the most conceptually perfect rock band since The Ramones..."
