The best George Clinton album in a few decades! Wait, no...

Seriously though, this is a great album. I still haven't fallen in love with every track, but the variety and yet consistency of quality here is amazing. I love "Have Some Love", which is definitely just a Parliament/Funkadelic song, but its a damn good one. "Boogieman" is a Curtis Mayfield song, but again its a damn good one. Redbone is impossible not to enjoy. And the surprising highlight of the whole affair for me has to be California. I've seen it get some hate other places but I really enjoy it. Sometimes it gets too unfocused, but its a solid solid album. The best funk I've heard made in a long long time, though I must admit its not my area of expertise.

85/100 (Very Good)

A somewhat diferent Gambino here and really surprising. Although as an album "Awaken, My Love!" doesn't acomplish much.

From mdbaxter
Childish Gambino wears his influences on his sleeve on this album. He hasn't been shy about saying how much "Maggot Brain" influenced him and it shows here. I don't think it's a problem for most of the album but "Have Some Love" is basically a Funkadelic ripoff. There are some more borrowed riffs and things like that on other songs but that is definitely the most overtly copied. Other than that, I really enjoyed the album. Gambino has reached a new height that I didn't see him getting to with his rapping. There's so much creativity on songs like "Me and Your Mama" and "Riot!" and he shows just how talented he is on "Redbone" and "Stand Tall". I'm very pleased with this album and the new direction that Gambino is headed in.

A funk album from mr. Glover. I’m not mad at this. He successfully put an old genre in a new jacket by not just making a funk song like they would in the ‘70s and just add auto-tune, but really giving auto-tune - and other modern vocal effects - an original place in funk (as an example).

“Just a half as (sic) rip of (sic) on (sic) some old Funkadelic album”? Nah. Your only problem is the overhypedness (not a word). I agree, but “don’t shoot the message”. Despite that it’s still a fucking good album.

It's a cool album with some nostalgic moments, but It's so overhyped. I mean, Zombies, Riot and California are some of the worst songs I've heard in 2016. And the album as a whole is not really that new and creative. Just a half as rip of on some old Funkadelic albums...

This is one of my favorite albums of the decade so far. Who would've thought Childish Gambino would jump from Rap to R&B/Funk, or that he'd make his greatest album in doing so. Everything Donald Glover does just amazes me. I'm excited to see what his final album looks like, personally I hope it's more like this than his older stuff.

I think this was my favourite album of 2016. Totally nailed the P Funk Parliament sound but in a modern way

Looking back on this, it's still a great album but definitely more forgettable than Because The Internet.

"Awaken, my love!" è un gran disco, come ogni tanto la musica nera ne sforna ( "Black Messiah" di D'Angelo due anni prima, per dire… ): mistura di stili, un po' di rap, un po' di rock, molto soul, soprattutto funky e soprattutto Funkadelic ("The night me and your mama met" sa tanto di "Maggot brain" ). Ma poi anche Lenny Kravitz, Sly and the Family Stone ( "Baby boy" pare una continuazione di "Just like a baby", già dal titolo… ).
