Funkadelic - Maggot Brain Click here to see this CD at!

By Marc Greilsamer

Funkadelic was George Clinton's chance to get serious. Unlike Parliament, Funkadelic exhibited topical lyrics and an almost heavy-metal edge, one that included screeching, distorted guitar and unsettling musical turns. This 1971 album, Funkadelic's second release, catches the ensemble in its early prime. The Hendrix-inspired dramatics come courtesy of Eddie Hazel, while Bernie Worrell admirably handles the keyboard chores. Clinton's humorous, sober lyrics address poverty, race relations, and drug use. Musically, the band covers lots of ground: Everything from smooth soul and heavy rock to abstract psychedelia and straight-on funky grooves has a place, and these jarring shifts are what make the album a revolutionary work.

"It's an accurate and concise review: Excellent artist. Excellent album. I quite agree. But for the record, it was Funkadelic's THIRD LP release, not second. The eponymous album was first, of course, and "Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow" (both released in 1970) was second."

--Freak of the Week

"This 3rd lp is regarded as Eddie Hazel's crowning glory, and funkadelic's purest album, before they really became popular with the masses, mostly musicians, radicals and stoners were listing to this album back in the day."
