4.0 out of 5 stars Computers huh? Jan. 18 2002
By Guy
Format:Audio CD
This here is a good album by George Clinton solo. It has some zany coolness and weirdy jams that we who like the P-Man get into but it has more than that. It takes a penetrating look into the life of Americans during the Reagan Administation; I say that because you're supposed to say something about Thatcher or Reagan in any review of an album from the 80's. I think it's really, truly relevant everytime that I see that written. If I was a professional critic I'd always be writing about Reagan. I always think, oh yes, this is about how I hated my life under Reagan and things were bad. Debaser by the Pixies, Thriller by Michael Jackson, heck, even Holiday by Madonna, all Reagan talk my friends. I'm also glad that I've finally realised that the more politically oriented political material from Clinton in the 70's was only looking forward to the evil empire which was about to envelop us all there for while. I wish this disc featured "the mystery track" though: Trickledown Boogie.

5.0 out of 5 stars dog catcher dog catcher loopzilla baby Sept. 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
man when the mothership crashed in 81, funkateers were sad, but when this came out in 82, i'm like yeah funk is back, cause true funkateers got tired of hearing boring love songs by shalamar, luther vandross, freddy jackson, and debarge-this woke us up from the placebo syndrome, atomic dog was sampled by damn nera every rapper you can think of, i love get dressed another classic, like man's best friend, and loopzilla where the mob goes into flashbacks and name all their songs plus put some motown in it, could it be that george ghost written those songs,after all he did use to work at motown, like i said this was the start of the p-funk thang coming back 2 more cd's and the funk mob fell off again but not to worry, the funk still rode on, thanks to rap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Believe in Atomic Dog March 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
Clinton's contributions to popular music are practically limitless; perhaps most importantly, he kept waving his freak flag high long after most musicians caved in to their labels' demand for conformity. Computer Games showcases his talent for squeezing archetypal beats and riffs out of his ever-changing cadre of musicians. Even though it was released in 1982, it still feels as fresh as tomorrow's flavor du jour. Try to keep from playing "Where did I hear that sampled?" and just let the funk wash you up and away to Clinton's psychedelic, sexed-up Disneyland. Every track's a winner.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but... April 11 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Compared to a lot of other George Clinton endeavors (Maggot Brain by Funkadelic, Mothership Connection by Parliament), Computer Games is reasonably mediocre. There are some pretty good cuts, and of course, the hit song Atomic Dog, but it lacks any connecting element or storyline. You may groove a little in your chair listening to this cd, but it's nothing to get up and funk about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Funk Coming Through May 12 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The undisputed master of funk served this up in 1982, and it has stored well. Including the classic, often-sampled "Atomic Dog" and other summer-lovin' tracks, "Computer Games" paved the way for the high-tech funk/hip-hop fusion we have today. There's dance tracks, chill tracks, and evrything in between. Don't miss this classic.
