5.0 out of 5 stars An album that changed my life. 16 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Do you promise to funk, the whole funk and nothing but the funk?' I sure do after hearing this amazing album. As soon as you hear the opening 30 seconds of the title track 'One nation under a groove' you just know its gonna be good. The title track is one of those beatific funk anthems that you never tire of and just have to shake your rump to. The rest of the album doesn't disappoint though. The great thing about the album is the way the songs all fit together without relying on a particular formula. Anyone with just a passing interest in funk should buy this album. In fact anyone with a passing interest in music generally should buy this album. It really is that good.

4.0 out of 5 stars United Funk of Funkadelica 6 Nov 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
There is nothing here as outrageously avant-garde or ebullient as Parliament's spectacular Flashlight and in general, this album's subdued tone makes it more soul-funk than rock-funk. Besides the title track on the one nation getting down just for the funk of it, I really love Groovallegiance with its lovely harmonies, interweaving voices, hypnotic melody and the subtle way it insinuates itself into the brain-grooves: "Let me take you by the hand/ And spread the funk across the land/ It's not hard to understand/ Heading for the master plan/ Pledge a groovallegiance to the funk/ The United Funk of Funkadelica/ Oh yea-hoo/ Dey do do do da funk/ Do da funk-de ee de dee!" I love the whole P-funk culture and especially Clinton's playful and witty socio political commentary. Seeing this band, or preferably the whole Parliafunkadelicment-thang live, must have been a memorable experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last-The Full Length Version ! 1 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
At long last somebody has had the sense to reissue this Cd,with the full length 12" version of"one Nation Under A Groove !.All previous isues of this album that I have had on CD have only contained the 7mins 26secs album versio and not the full 12" mix.The timing on the CD would indicate that O.N.U.A.G. is a 16 mins version,but is in fact the 12" mix which fades after 11 mins and is then followed by the instrumental.I won't do a full review,as if you a fan you will know this album inside out anyway.Dave Begley

5.0 out of 5 stars Groove is in the heart.......and the head. 27 Jun 2008
By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It,s not likely that a band,s tenth studio album will be their best but there can be little argument that the 1978 album One Nation Under A Groove by Funkadelic saw the band reach the pinnacle of their career. A loose concept album about the power of funk to make people happier and more open minded with the added benefit of making then dance like loons on hot coals One Nation Under a Groove is the bands most lauded( rightly) and commercially successful album ( rightly too)
This is the first Funkadelic album to feature keyboard player and songwriter Walter "Junie" Morrison" and his contribution is vital to the albums groovalicious ambience. The album is widely acknowledged as being massively influential , though whether that's always been a good thing is open to debate. Either way it,s not Funkadelic,s fault if second rate copyists latched on to their sound and perspicacious fusion of genres
The album is a heady concoction of glossy P-funk, heavy duty harmonics, scatological socio-political lyrics complete with cross-genre quirks. The title track is the most straight up funk track , an absolute classic of the genre but "Groovallegiance" integrates a a hint of reggae while "Who Says A Funk Band Can,t Play Rock?!" as the title infers is a funk/rock hybrid. The bassline is undiluted funk but the guitars and percussion carry a true rock crunch. The downside of innovation like this is risible copyists like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers who unfortunately become all pervasive. The wonderfully titled "Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis" Enema Squad (The Doo Doo Chasers)" is a satire comparing the dumbing down of global culture with errr toilets. "Into You" is the albums reflective pause, a virtual R&B ballad , though much better than most R&B ballads.
