Underrated -> serious p-funk Nov. 6 2004
By modifiedcontent - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is the last serious p-funk album. Yes, GC uses eighties drum machines and synthesizers, but p-funk always changed with the times. On this album GC collaborated with Steve Washington (of funk band Slave), Doug Wimbish and Thomas Dolby. And GC's brand of eighties music sounds nothing like anything else around at the time. Vocally GC's on top of his game. He could still do those weird falsettos. It's the last p-funk album with a theme; the Cold War. Despite the hyper vocals and dance grooves it has a dark, almost depressing undercurrent that may put many people off. But I kinda like it...

A Truly Clinton Eyed View Of The World July 22 2015
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
Format: Audio CD
One of the things that I've learned over the years is the potency of P-Funk during the 1980's. It was a musical organization that was still touring,still recording music and still maintaining a loyal fan base even when the societal odds were rather against what it stood for. And even with that? Some of the most challenging music from the band was being created during time time as well. Difference was it was mainly being channeled through George Clinton albums where his personality was the central focus. But all the elements of the band were there. In this cast of musical characters we have future Living Color member Doug Wimbish and new wave/funk hitmaker Thomas Dolby along for the ride. And it's one that deserves to be taken more than once.

"Double Oh-Oh" is an electrified march extenuated by very Minneapolis style synthesized horns and female choir vocals. "Bullet Proof" is intense industrial funk-layer upon layer of bass synth combined with high pitched,laser like electronics and that Arabic type melody used in a lot of dance music of that era. "Pleasures Of Exhaustion (Do It 'Til You Drop)" is a long,extended jam with a jagged rhythm with both synthesized and electric slap bass accents-along with flutes. "Bodyguard" is a piano,drum and keyboard led dance/funk jam while "Bangladesh" is a slow,doo wop styled ballad. "Thrashin'",featuring Dolby and the closing title song are both live bass//guitar and horn based P-Funk that only leaves in the contemporary drum machine for the electronic element.

Very much like it's predecessor? This album ushered P-Funk into the fully electro funk edge. There's no irony lost on me there since the band were even in their 70's heyday pioneers of that sub-genre of funk-with Bernie Worrell's "video game" style synthesizers. Conceptually this album is probably one of Clinton's most important in the 80's. It's apparent that the Reagan era of SDI and the final days of the Cold War were proving fertile ground for his lyricism. Again the metaphor of the atomic chain reaction is an important part of this album. But is used to make important points about how Clinton's "pimping of the pleasure principle" prediction seemed to be coming true before his eyes. Yet both musically AND lyrically? He understood that black America had basic human feelings too. And were in the mind to demand another,better way to live. An album that's a lot funkier and more significant in it's day than one might think it to be.

Don't be misled. Clinton's 80's output funked it up. P-Funk updated heir sound with a little too much drum machine and fake bass and synthesizer. But the songs were SO good they demanded your attention. Bangladesh is brilliant. Punctuated by a beautiful guitar solo. Double Oh-Oh and Bulletproof are classic Clinton. Great cd!
