Funkadelic was George Clinton's chance to get serious. Unlike Parliament, Funkadelic exhibited topical lyrics and an almost heavy-metal edge, one that included screeching, distorted guitar and unsettling musical turns. This 1971 album, Funkadelic's second release, catches the ensemble in its early prime. The Hendrix-inspired dramatics come courtesy of Eddie Hazel, while Bernie Worrell admirably handles the keyboard chores. Clinton's humorous, sober lyrics address poverty, race relations, and drug use. Musically, the band covers lots of ground: Everything from smooth soul and heavy rock to abstract psychedelia and straight-on funky grooves has a place, and these jarring shifts are what make the album a revolutionary work. --Marc Greilsamer
Top customer reviews
The intro is excited, a little confused, filled with anticipation, then Maggot Brain is the aching beauty of the come up, Can You Get To That is the plateau when you think you've got a handle on it, but really you've just stopped coming up, and are really high (beautiful, according to JH). Then there's a couple of tracks of general confusion and jazzy funky noise, then there's the sanity restoring We Are Back In Our Minds Again. Dunno what Wars Of Armageddon is about, was always too stoned by then ;-)
