Product Description

Digitally remastered edition of this 1996 album from the Funk legend. T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M., or The Awesome Power Of A Fully Operational Mothership to give the album its full title, was released at a time when the Acid House-inspired dance music craze had swept across the UK and attention was turning to the guitar driven Britpop bands. And yet with its ferociously awesome funk grooves, it evoked memories of a time at least 20 years previous, when Clinton's musical gangs Funkadelic and Parliament held sway over popular music. T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. has largely been viewed as a reunion album of the Funkadelic/Parliament era, featuring as it does, input from former members including Bootsy Collins, Maceo Parker, Bernie Worrell, Junie Morrison and Fred Wesley. It is perhaps no coincidence that within a year of the release of T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. that Parliament and Funkadelic were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Super Bird. 2010.

This is a lower type of album for Clinton. Having listened to his earlier stuff and seeing him live recently, I decided to pick this album up when it was on sale. It's definitely nothing compared to previous releases, but it's something.
Funk is something that is not changing, but morphing, slowly. You have Dr. Funk himself here and obviously he's the sole proprietor for change. In this particular record, which was released 1996, you have the change of tides. R and B was and still is big, so he infused his own jam and sound into it. There are even hints of classic gangster rap. It's a total different blend here...and it's taking a bit longer to get used to.
To think this is new, I'm out of my league, but it's different, especially after listening to Clinton for awhile. This is not your average Clinton album, but it's a nice one to add to the mix. It really shows how diverse an artist he is, which is always decent. All in all, not his strongest attempt, but nonetheless, an alright.

HASH(0x9dbd1f24) out of 5 stars The return of the Mothership? It never left for me! Dec 28 2001
By Reginald D. Garrard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is a reason why Sir George is an icon to so many of the young hip-hop crowd. The fact is plain and simple: the man can jam. No better proof than in this album from 1996. It may be five years old but the funk has never sounded funkier (Forgive the redundancy!).

Clinton and the P-Funk All-stars (Bootsy Collins, Ray Davis, Lashonda Clinton among others) take the listener on an all-encompassing journey through the wonders of the musical universe with a solidified amalgamation of uncensored cosmic music. Yeah, that description is wordy, but Clinton deserves it.

Only Clinton could feature the line "I can do it like hot grits on Al Green," found in the song "Funky Kind (Gonna Knock It Down)." Other stellar selections are "Summer Swim," "New Spaceship" featuring the Gap Band's Charlie Wilson on vocals, "Flatman and Bobbin," reminiscent of Parliament's 70's heyday, "Rock the Party," and the two versions of the title cut.

Clinton can still put this nation "under one groove": HIS!

HASH(0x9dbd1f78) out of 5 stars A funky good time from the Funkmeister April 18 2000
By Patrick G. Varine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
While T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. may be a strange title, realize that it stands for "The Awesome Power of a Fully Operation Mothership." And realize also, that this is George Clinton and the P-Funk Allstars, who are anything but conventional.
And in that same vein, this is not your typical funk record. The Allstars supply molasses-smooth grooves for Clinton to croon over, which he does very well on tracks like "Underground Angel," the title track and "Fly Away."
There are also moments where this is an out-and-out party starter. "If Anybody Gets Funked Up (It's Gonna Be You)" kicks off the album in grand fashion with a nice groove, and the capper is a remix of the same song by P-Funk associate Colin Wolfe.
But there are those songs that lapse into a boring cadence and stay there. Tracks like "Flatman & Bobbin" and "Mathematics" are prime examples of filler rather than meat.
"T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M." is hit-or-miss a good portion of the time. There's nothing on here that is really truly BAD, but there are a few selections that are definitely less than good. All in all, however, this is a good record, and if you're a P-Funk fan, this is most definitely your LP.

HASH(0x9dbd33cc) out of 5 stars Lets Get Funky Tonight March 16 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
George tells it like it is in tapoafom, the slap bass in this album will change your perspective on music. If you dont dig this album the first time you hear it, try a little x and let your body roll. This album is amazing to just leave playing at a party and durning those romantic evenings with queen bee.

Don't know why people didn't like this disc, There is a lot going on here that is cool and funky. Give to your earholes they will love you for it Charlie Wilson is on here as well as others who contribute a lot of funk.. My favorite is "Mathematically". But, hey that's just me. You will find others.

HASH(0x9dbd3468) out of 5 stars More than a little Funky Feb. 7 2005
By Steven Bridges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If funk were made of strawberries and bananas I'd be drinking a lot of smoothies. This album is simply great. It's everything a 20-something college kid likes about Hip-Hop, Funk, and any kind of good music rolled into one album. It's really smart music too. Hard as Steel is brilliantly funny without being too corny, and Underground Angel is amazing. BUY THIS.
