Parliament - Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome Click here to see this CD at!

By Marc Greilsamer

On this follow-up to Mothership Connection, George Clinton uncharacteristically sticks to the same funk-disco formula. Unlike most sequels, however, this 1977 work is nearly as compelling as the original. Check your brain at the door while Clinton feeds you infectious dance rhythms and irreverent lyrics that fuse anthemic chants with bizarre fairy tales and stream-of-consciousness ramblings. On "Wizard of Finance," Parliament returns to melodic 1960s soul while Clinton's hysterical lyrics are backed by soulful doowop-style vocals. "Flash Light" became a huge dance-floor hit but actually pales in comparison to the rest of the grooves. With talents including Bernie Worrell, Maceo Parker, and Fred Wesley on board, it's no wonder the profunk forces defeat the antifunk contingent.

">>"Flash Light became a huge dance-floor hit but actually pales in comparison to the rest of the grooves." Are you crazy? Flashlight was the beginning of a new sound in black music!"

--Nubian Nut

"This album is without question one of the best Parliament every released! The vocals are outstanding, especially "Bop Gun" and the bass playing is excellent especially on "Placebo Syndrome". If you are a NEW Parliament fan buy it or borrow it from a won't regret it!"
