This album initially disappointed. Great title, cool artwork, starts with a 10 minute jam. It’s kind of cool, but there are better epic jams from the era. Funkadelic really were a weird band though. Basically a soul group backed by a psychedelic rock band. Really haven’t ever seen anything like them before or since. First album is still the most fun.
No bonus tracks on this one. A bit more variety than the first one. Still pretty straight forward. Good album. I like it. Starts and ends well.
Eh. It’s not bad at all, but it’s pretty boring. Kind of mellow, weak stoner rock. Nothing bad on here though. Just not sure it deserves another hour of my life.
First album with a song I recognize. Less rock, more theatrical. Still not bad.
This is a MUCH quieter album than the previous ones. I really had no idea it would be like this. Not sure if I ever listened. I really don’t get how people freaked out about this one. It’s just kind of boring.
I bought this at Best Buy around the same time I got Everything I Long For. I think this was also the same year that I bought Soundtracks for the Blind. This is also probably one of the last albums I ever bought at Best Buy. Well it depends on how you count. It didn’t grab me then, and it doesn’t grab me now.
So apparently there’s an original version of this album with more songs and a longer version of “Bad As They Seem.” I need to check it out. This album was kind of a favorite of mine when I got it. This was of course 2 years after the re-release and 3 years after the original release. Songs are very bleak in places. Some intense yelling in the vocals in places. That wouldn’t appear on the later albums unfortunately. Anyway, this album can still grab me.
