The Rads major label debut is still one of their high water marks. Some of their best songs and best grooves, with no duds or slow patches. If you like greasy, feel-good roots rock with a New Orleans twist, this here's your meat. Especially recommended for Little Feat fans, and although Lowell George still gets the nod over anyone in similar mercenary territory, the Rads are far, far better and more exciting than the post-Lowell feat. If you like this album (I'm a bit partial because this is the one that turned me on to the Rads long time ago) I recommend moving on to Total Evaporation, Live at the Great American, New Dark Ages, and Bucket of Fish, in approximately that order. If you're still jonesing, the other stuff available ain't too shabby either, and of course they've always been very generous with the live tapes so you can always cast out your line and do some live fishin'... But the point is this is the album to start with... Doctor, Doctor, Like Dreamers Do, and Suck the Head all got a good bit of radio play and certainly deserved it, and Holiday is a classic feel-good tune.

Since they were a bar band for many years, these songs were the ones they had been honing and playing. This is a great album, and in my opinion all other efforts have fallen way short. Almost every song is great.

This album flows like Sgt. Peppers .. Every Song is great, I just wish they performed these songs live a lot more these days

LAW OF THE FISH is a great slab of rock & roll from New Orleans. It combines all different styles of music popular in the Crescent City- jazz, R&B, funeral parade music, funk, West Indian music, zydeco, African music- with Allmans/Outlaws-style Southern rock, creating a heady gumbo that's filling but not fattening. This album makes a good case for boycotting Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen over their trivialization of the rich culture of Southern Louisiana.

This studio album came out in my college years, and it was frequently played at frat parties. 20 years later, it still stands up. The band is in tight form; every song is performed with gusto.

Like a previous reviewer I wish they'd played these songs more live because it's the best of their repertoire. IMO, this was their peak.

These Fish have no little feat. They will school you with their bogie rockin sounds and righteous lyrics. Feed your head, feed the Fish!

Absolutely brillian album. I would love to see these guys live but have a feeling that they broke up.

Chock full of down home Nawlins gumbo and soul, this CD is far and away the best of the Rads' studio albums. "Like Dreamers Do" is a personal fave. See 'em live!
