Great album but more importantly Charley finally delivers on the sound with the 2014 release. Although no mention in the liner notes, the sound on this cd is much better than all previous releases which, in my opinion, sounded somewhat leaden.
This applies to all 4 in the Charly 2014 series of late Funkadelic albums

It was hard task to follow the awesome 'One Nation Under A Groove' but Clinton and crew gave it a good shot. The problem with this album is the lack of focus compared with its predecessor. The album has a vague military theme, but is never fully developed. The album just doesn't flow as well. However there isn't a dull moment on the album and it is quite superb throughout. The two opening tracks 'Freak of the Week' and 'Not just Knee Deep' are great party tunes and about as good as dance music gets (well how many other dance tunes have 5 minute guitar solos). 'Field Manoeuvres' is a hilarious guitar work out, 'Foot soldiers' just plain silly and 'Holly wants to go to California', well what can I say? Its a ballad. But its a Funkadelic ballad so its great fun. My personal favourite though is 'Uncle Jam'. This has to be one of Funkadelic's most funkiest, most funniest and grooviest of grooves. Overall a great album.
