While the concept portion of the album is a bit vague above all the album funks.

Funk at it´s best, the only downside is the mixing and mastering on CD, but it must sound amazing on vinyl.

Criminally underrated album on this website. From my observation, most Besteveralbum members don't know much about the funk.

Belongs to a select few albums that define what Funk is all about.

I was first introduced to Parliament a year after I graduated from college by a girl who put "P. Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)" and "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)" on a mix tape for me. It was only then that I discovered how badly I had always wanted to improve my intergalactic funksmanship. And that that was a thing. George Clinton's place in the world of music is all his own--the most bizarre combination of seventies funk and space-age psychedelia, hilarious self-promotion, and an unapologetically playful and self-deprecating take on blackness. This album never fails to make me smile.

A funky masterpiece. It doesn't get any more grooving than this. Mothership connection, is utterly infectious and one of the most enjoyable LP's ever. George Clinton leads a delicious confectionery of seventies funk. Great stuff.
