Testing the Waters


The water-themed album comes after Thirsty Fish member Dumbfoundead released a previous concept album in 2005, the video game themed Super Barrio Bros EP which features Psychosiz of Thirsty Fish on the track "Three Pipes Down" and Thirsty Fish's Open Mike Eagle on the track "Bosses" (alongside Alpha MC). All three members of the group appear on that album's bonus track "Shit Talkers".[1]


Generally regarded as a solid debut[2] with average to above average ratings from consumers[3] and above average to exceptional ratings from reviewers,[4] Thirsty Fish have since been signed to Mush Records to produce a second album, Watergate.[5] In spite of this, however, a recurring criticism is the group's overuse of the water theme.[6]
