This along with 'the electric spanking of war babies' heralded the end of an era of incredible high concept albums from the overlords of everything nasty.
On it's release ' trombipulation' wasn't well received by the critics who saw it as the worn out creative demise of P-Funk.
I'm convinced it should be retrospectively elevated to a true classic - as with all funk mob albums there is a depth beyond the initial understanding of us mere mortals.
'Long way around' 'New doo review' & 'Peek a groove' are three of the most stunning & emotionally life affirming tracks you may wish to hear - full blown brilliantly dynamic P-Funk in every sense
Bootsy throws in 'Lets play house' proving yet again these cats were always ahead of the game.
The rest of the album is solid indeed and unlike
The competition this incredible music has not dated one iota in 35 years- truly superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the thickest funk ever recorded! A+ Album! 26 Oct. 2015
By Thingfish33 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great album. No surprise that you will hear a ton of stuff from this one sampled through out the years by others. Some say this was not received as well as the previous stuff but this stands right up with the rest of the classic albums. If like your funk on the one, then you need to own this album. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite 17 Dec. 2013

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This is one of my all time favorite Parliament records. I love everthing about it. George and the funk mob were at the top of their game when they recorded this project. costly on cd, so I got it on Lp, and it reminds me of when it first came out. This is a must for any "True Delic".

5.0 out of 5 stars Born On The Wind,Diggin' On Things With THE NOSE! 26 Aug. 2010
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Ill circumstances with George Clinton aside this is the final Parliament studio album on Cassablanca and interestingly enough it pointed to a very compelling change in direction. Now the same basic band that waxed P-Funk classics like Mothership Connection and instrumentally it's also surprising how much this still resembles that era for the musical collective. Over the years,Digital Underground aside this album has gotton a lot ribbing from longtime P-Funk fans for a lot of different reasons. One of the things that does set this apart is the in terms of sound and songwriting this album is very much akin to the latter 70's P-Funk sound which was now very much a sound a lot of funk bands were getting in on. Not only that but Bernie Worrell and Junie Morrison's style of playing,as well as Clinton's arrangements here are more fluidly arranged and tightly arranged than much of anything in the P-Funk world. Yes we all heard that change coming to some degree on "Knee Deep" and even One Nation Under a Groove and here it's streched across the entire album. Conceptually this album comes to something of a full circle for Parliament. The Sir Nose character is returning to the Pyramids to find his ancestors the Cro Nasal Sapiens and in the end seems to win out. What a metaphore for where R&B was headed during the post disco freeze out in the early 80's. Considering how much of a priority the characters of Starchild,Dr. Funkenstein and his clones had gotton on the 70's Parliamnt albums it's kind of fitting that this,to a degree extends on themes explored on the Motor Booty Affair. Musically "Crush It","Peek A Groove" and to much larger extent "Long Way Around" and "New Doo Review" all embrace that tightly arranged and more stripped down sound (by P-Funk standards) with a mixture of choral vocals and orchestration that anticipates Prince's similar hybrids of minimal funk and orchestral arrangements as well as,to a certain extent the new wave inflected "naked funk" that....P-Funk had helped to inspire to start with to a degree. Other songs such as the title song,"Agony Of Defeet" and the keyboard crazy" "Body Language" are examples of the spirit of more traditional P-Funk if the style is that definable. None really do so more as the famously sampled and very loopable on it's own "Let's Play House" with Bernie's liquid synthesizers and the Horny Horns punctuating everything all the way. The excellent inner cover art,aside from it's wittisisms also says a lot more than a lot of people might think. In it George Clinton is depicted with both the Sir Nose snout and a process hairstyle similar to what he had earlier in his career. Again it reflected the "going back to go forward" musical mentality to come so,in that sense as well as musically this album is very futurist even though it represents an ending of an era of sorts. Either way this is a highly underrated and listenable album that is sadly the only Parliament album to date that's out of print domestically.
