5.0 out of 5 stars funkadelic- amazing album, 20 July 2004
By 
JUNKHOUSEDOG (MANCHESTER, MANCHESTER United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Funkadelic (Audio CD)
THESE GUYS SOUND LIKE BLACK SOUL CHILLED OUT HIPPYS
THIS IS MY FAVOURITE ALBUM FULL STOP. ITS THE MOST LOOSE ALBUM THAT WORKS THAT I'VE EVER HEARD. SOMETIMES THE BEATS ARE SO ALMOST OUT OF TIME ITS AMAZING THAT IT WORKS, THIS IS PURE CHILLED OUT SUSTAINED NOTES[ I DONT MEAN LEAD SOLOS BUT JUST SUSPENTION OF TIME OVER A BEAT], JOHN BONHAM STYLE DRUMS ALL THROUGH THE ALBUM AND I MEAN - BIG BIG DRUMS. ALL THE SONGS FLOW ONE TO THE NEXT PERFECTLY, NO CONTRIVENCE. ITS LIKE A HOLE ALBUM THATS BEEN JAMMED OUT BUT JUST HAPPENED TO WORK. THIS IS THE FUNKIEST STUFF I'VE HEARD AS FUNKY AS THE JB'S BUT UNIQUE
THE ALBUMS LIKE JIMMY HENDRIX WITHOUT THE SOLOS,-PERFECT.
THE ALBUM IS MIXED SO WELL,PLAY IT IN AN EMPTY ROOM AND IS ITS SO FULL SOUNDING ITS LIKE YOUR THERE.
I'VE DISCONNECTED ONE SPEAK AT A TIME AND LISTENED TO THE WHOLE ALBUM THEN DONE THE SAME AND LISTENED TO THE WHOLE ALBUM THROUGH THE OTHER SPEAKER CHANNEL AND ITS JUST BRILLIANT.
PLAY IT LOAD AND CHILLOUT THIS IS INCREDIBLE.
VERY BLUSEY GOSPELY EVEN AMERICAN INDIAN SOUNDING , IN A FUNKY ECHOE CHILLED OUT WAY
ON ONE SONG THEY MIMIC THE HARMONICA WITH A VOICE AND I'M A GOOD HARP PLAYER- THEY ARE SO TUNED INTO SOUL, ITS BLISS.

4.0 out of 5 stars sure they got a thing here!, 31 Oct 2001
This review is from: Funkadelic (Audio CD)
Whew, these guys must have been seen as making totally weird records. Whereas e.g. the Temptations also made great psychedelic soul/funk at the time, they also left you with the impression they were quite lovable guys. Not so with Funkadelic; you wouldn't have wanted them to be your neighbours. This is the first Funkadelic record, and it's quite dark at times. Not all the numbers work, but when they do they're excellent. On the one hand there's "I got a thing...etc." and "I'll bet you", good, funky, and snappy singles, that a having a slightly mysterious air around them. The more experimental stuff is fomed by "Mommy...", a totally stoned jam that works great. Less convincing is a blues number "Qualify and satisfy", which doesn't really belong here, and the closing also-very-stoned-jam "What is soul", to which my answer is: probably something either more interesting, or groovy.
Altogether, this is a great record however and quite unique in its style. If you're a novice and also want to get a good impression of the later adventures of early Funkadelic (until '75), you might want to look further for the 2CD 'Music for my mother: Funkadelic 45s', on which the majority of this first album is also featured, and which is accompanied by a very good booklet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgot how good funk can be?, 5 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funkadelic [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Not a lot to say about this album as it's not rocket science. Neck-snappin' bass, pounding rhythms, zinging guitar - all round funky excess. Crank up the volume, upset the neighbours and just you try sitting still! Every home should have one.
