George Clinton was unstoppable. The previous album The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein was good, but this LP is unbelievable. Bob Gun opens the album with danceable Funk. Then, Sir Nose d'Voidoffunk: aside from being ultra-funky and the "lyrics" mad beyond control, the music here may be the most advanced and far-reaching of all Parliament tracks. Just listen to Bernie Worrell's synth wizardry and his abstract comments on the acoustic piano, Clinton's Sir Nose travesty, the girls' background vocals, the brass arrangement, the fat bass - at a running time of more than ten minutes, this song is a miracle! Other highlights: Funkentelechy (also over ten minutes long) and the hit, Flash Light . –Yofriend
