This is one smoulderingly beautiful funk album...yes and it's called Maggot Brain. The album cover is one of my all-time favorites (it's framed on my wall right now) but the music is even better. Eddie Hazel's guitar work is really so impressive, it's extreme talent without overdoing it, just the right balance is a rare find. The feedback and the echoing of the guitar are just brilliant, it's goosebump inducing seriously. If you want to get hooked, listen to the title track and be blown away, I guarantee you won't be able to quit listening and you'll probably be sold on Funkadelic for life. It's instrumental, but it's probably the best of it's kind. "Can You Get to That" is a more traditional group funk song, it's almost folk-like but it's got a great groove and many interesting voices, truly a great song also. "Hit It and Quit It" has a great riff and is infectious as heck, another classic head nodding funk masterpiece. I love the chord progressions and the heavy bass of "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks" seriously not a duff note on the album. "Super Stupid" picks up the tempo for a Jimi Hendrix-like tune that rocks as hard as any classic rock song if not moreso. "Back in Our Minds" has a really interesting sound effect like banging a spoon against a cup with water (there is a wicked bend sound that is addictive)...I dunno what the heck it's actually called but it's super neato. It's more of a slower groove but it's a great one, sort of like old friends getting together and having a great time. Lastly "Wars of Armageddon" comes on with some african style drumming, various sound loops and effects, it's quite a funky psychedelic piece that goes through various segments but it's always interesting. This album as a whole is pure genius, they prove they can tackle anything they want and do it better than anyone else and they can look cool doing it. I wasn't ready for this album until I got into my "funk stage" but now that I'm there I can't imagine being without this.
