4.0 out of 5 stars Aging Ageless Funk Sept. 13 2005
By doomsdayer520 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
George Clinton and some of his longstanding P.Funk cronies are now senior citizens, and the grown children and even grandchildren of some of the Mobsters are now Mobsters themselves. George and the Gang are still hard after all these years, but this lengthy and languid release shows them merging into the slow lane on the funk freeway. At more than two and half hours of mostly laidback workouts from a variety of All-Stars (supposedly recorded over a long period to boot), there's a bit too much to this package, and the long songs tend to repeat their grooves rather than work them into a frenzy. The low point is "I Can Dance," which repeatedly loops the basic riff from the old Funkadelic song "Nappy Dugout" for fifteen sleep-inducing minutes. Ballads such as "U Can Depend on Me" or "Never Ending Love" suffer from a lack or urgency and personality as well.

But there are still plenty of slammin' tracks in this release, stemming from George's immortal quest for new sounds. Ever since the late 70's, P.Funk tracks have generally sounded cluttered and busy as George tried to cram as many Funkateers into the studio as space or technology would allow. But here, many of the songs are refreshingly sparse and groove-oriented, good examples being "Su Su Su" and the delightfully nasty "Something Stank." There is also a great amount of genre experimentation here, at a level not heard since the early Funkadelic discs. This includes the smooth reggae of "Inhale Slow," rollicking jazz/blues in an expansive cover of "Whole Lotta Shakin'," and weird techno doo-wop in a cover of "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight" which reunites four of the five original Parliaments. And the Mob shows it can still rock out with metallic precision in the guitarful "Viagra." In a great variety of ways, this release shows that George and the P.Funk All-Stars are getting old, but they'll continue to be the funkiest fogies you ever did see. [~doomsdayer520~]

4.0 out of 5 stars Funkadelic Rocks! Oct. 21 2005
By George H. Darden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
How late do you have 2BB4UR Absent? Not sure, but but what we do know is that this new double CD from the Parliament-Funkadelic Funk Mob is right on time! George Clinton's voice is stronger than it has been in many years and the band is crankin'. This CD features George's son and his grand daughter also. Looks like they will carry on the "freak" tradition. I would have preferred one great focused Funkadelic CD but I guess George was trying to please all of his new post "Jerry Garcia" fans on this one. You have your R&B grooves, your Belita Woods vocals and even a 15 minute loop of the classic Funkadelic jam "Nappy Nugout". Although Prince also rocks on the CD, I would have liked more funky rock n roll guitarisms from Mike Hampton and Garry Shider.

Something "stank" and I want some!

4.0 out of 5 stars George is back Oct. 19 2005
By Karl Bulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a real return to form and a decent snapshot of where PFunk is in 2005. There are some real standout tracks here but considering how many tracks there are, there's surprisingly little filler (unfortunately that doesn't mean no filler, but there are few pfunk albums without a couple of over-indulgent tracks).

It's been possible for a few years to get tracks by some of the artists on here (if you dig around hard enough) e.g. Kendra Foster, Sativa and Trey Lewd have all had solo projects out (including some of the songs on here) but the tracks produced for this album are all much stronger.

George has also changed his own approach a bit here, not draughting in loads of rap/R&B stars and mostly relying on the current members of the touring Funk Mob. He hasn't overproduced this album and this leads to simpler and better tracks.

My personal favourite is 'Sexy Side of You'. Really catchy, can't get the chorus out of my head, it's a slice of old school PFunk. But there's plenty for everyone here, no matter what your preferred pfunk style is. It's also more accessible to all than some recent albums and if you've not bought a pfunk album before then this could be a decent starting point. (But if this is your starting point, go straight back out there and buy Parliament's 'Chocolate City' and Funkadelic's 'Let's Take it to the Stage' afterwards.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Dope Feb. 7 2006
By Lucas W. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What is a booty, and how do you know if you're shaking it? Thank God for George Clinton so that we will always have an answer to that question. ...Absent is a sprawling conglomeration of P-Funk-related tracks, great and small. In all honesty, this album really deserves around 3 stars, but the pieces and parts can be removed and built into a 4-4.5 star funk opus. There is no question that some songs drag down the average a bit.

One thing that concerned me before I bought this album was the wide variety of artists credited to different songs. Kendra who? Sativa? Don't worry. GC is all over this thing, and when you listen to it you won't be able to tell the difference. There are a variety of flavors here, just take your pick. "Watchamacallit" sounds like a TAPOAFOM-era jam. "Because/Last Time Zone" is a trippy, Funkadelic-style piece that borrows from the Beatles. "Sexy Side of You" is the perfect semi-sleazy slice of funk/pop that you didn't even know you've been waiting for. Its arguably the best thing Clinton has done in a decade.

One aspect that I really liked about this album was the integration of hip-hop, throughout. P-Funk and Hip-Hop have been intertwined since DJs began sampling Parliament in the early 80s (or late 70s, maybe) but never has it been married together as convincingly as "Trust in Yourself", for example. Another selling point are the guest spots, with two in particular standing out. While the Prince collabo, "Paradigm", doesn't exactly live up to the billing of the two greatest funkateers this side of Sly Stone, it is a can't-miss moment nonetheless. Del the Funkee Homosapien's freestyle over Funkadelics sludgy metal is the reason I picked this up in the first place. Ultimately, if you love the funk, you can do worse than this release.

Here is my ultra-sleek streamlined version:

1. Bounce 2 This

2. Butt-A-Butt

3. Paradigm

4. Gypsy Woman

5. Inhale Slow

6. Viagra

7. Because/Last Time Zone

8. Su, Su, Su

9. Sexy Side of You

10. Watchamacallit

11. Trust in Yourself

12. I'll Be Sittin' Here

Of course, you'll want to cater yours to your specific tastes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funk is back!!! Oct. 3 2005
By Gary P. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
George Clinton and crew proves that it takes creativity and skills to last 20 plus years. Paradigm and I Can Dance are both Funk Hall Of Fame candidates. Paradigm is sooo creative. I'm old school, but my daughter and friends are 16 year old hip-hopsters. THEY LOVE THAT PARADIGM! I Can Dance is like no other. The blend of the sister expressing herself and the funk behind has to come from the masters like George and Crew. WELCOME BACK FUNK and THANK YOU BIG GEORGE and the P_FUNK ALL STARS!!
