This review is from: The Funky 16 Corners (Audio CD)
A rather neat idea to expose the lesser known funky bands in the USA by producing an album that will give these bands a fair share in sales. That alone gets a thumbs up from me. I own the Funk Spectrum trilogy, which I love to death. (Look for Funk Spectrum 1, 2 and 3 separately). This album is on par with those ones, although the one major difference is that where as the Funk Spectrum albums have a variation and allow the user to recover from amazing tracks with a selection of less dirty in your face tracks. This CD though is in your face all the time. That is not a bad thing, but without a little variation it can become a little ‘samey’.
The standout track is the on the album is named after, but the others are just as good., I agree with the other reviewers that this album is brilliant, but as I like a tadge more variation in a compilation I have to knock a star off of it. I’d recommend the fast selling out Funk Spectrum Series if you like a bit of a mix of styles, otherwise this is a sound purchase.
