I haven't heard the album yet, but what I read here looks promising. And I just found out that he's touring Europe! I think I'll go, because this is probably the last chance. In Brussels, he's playing on a festival with D'Angelo, who I've never seen live. Is D any good live?

He’s not the physical performer that Prince was, but the music is tight:

Still trying to assmilate all 23 tracks, but even on an early listen this is easily George's most consistent album in decades, probably since TAPOAFOM or earlier. A great achievement. He still has it at 77. And is still capable of surprising you. My prescription is filled.

I need to spend more time with it, but I think that it might be my favourite P-Funk release since Dope Dogs (and I love Dope Dogs!).

The music here is brilliant. The slower cuts just as compelling. The vocals are nice, the way he layers them. I can even deal with the rap. I just wasn’t expecting so much profanity on a Parliament disc. I don’t recall them ever being this obscene. Funkadelic yes, of which many of these actually sound like sans the horns. Never before have I heard such a mix of polished, classy music with such potty mouf, toilet lyrics. To the point of almost feeling guilty listening to something so nasty. No way can I play it around the house. Overall I’m feeling the grooves.
He’s hitting me hard with these life affirming messages on cuts like All In and Pain Management.

Guilty pleasure? I felt for a long time that names like Parliament and Funkadelic don't mean anything anymore, especially since few (if any) of the original members are left. It's just any given name to any project he does at any time. Anyway, I'm going to my goodbye concert next month to close off two decades of seeing P-Funk live. Thank you, George & the gang! headbang

Is "Don't Let Go" on it? A track with Chris Dave, Fred Wesley horns, a Trazea rap, Mudbone, etc.

No,that song is not on it.

It is on it! It is 'DaDa'.

That is Chris Daddy Dave (D'Angelo etc) on drums, Fred Wesley horn arrangement. Effin masterpiece imho.

"suck that gut in,bitch!" lol but yeah,I know what you mean.Some of these lyrics go too far.Especially "Kool Aid".On this album,they're aiming for a hip-hop attitude/vibe throughout,which of course means alot of nasty,offensive lyrics.Sometimes,it works ("Oil Jones") but sometimes,it's too much.

Yeah man. It goes from these classy, self empowering bits like All in, Pain Management to as Trey Lewd would say 3x nasty. Trey is a lyrical genius but he’s way in the toilet here. No Mos is my chyt tho’x

ya know....just like I did with Shake The Gate......I'm gonna have to take these 23 tracks and compile my own tracklist.I'm gonna focus mainly on the tracks that don't have a heavy rap/hip-hop feel.

Yup. There is plenty to dig here. To me Mudbone just steals the show. This album is not what it is without him to me.
The back end of Kool Aid is the thick Aqua Boogie-ish, Big Bang type of grooves y’all been asking for for years. But there was always more to Parliament than that. And this ain’t 1978. He emphasizes this is the ‘new’ Parliament when he talks about the record.

Funny thing is, after all the hoopla and anticipation for this record I'm finding that I actually prefer.....Gate. The songs have better production quality to them. Go figure, go wiggle.

I want to like it more so far but like much of the new material too many sounds all over the place, it is best when the guests are gone and its just George on the mic. The hip hop shit doesnt blend well with the jazz musings but here and there some listenable material...but much of the latter GC has been a facsimilie of what it used to be unfortunaltley...and people complain about Brno Mars though? I thought Childish Gambino's Awaken My Love may have put osme new inspiration on this but its lacking core ground of which the Funkadelic 'sound' stands on.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

hmmm I found Shake The Gate to be an interesting,yet very messy,project.This new album is much more focused and for the most part,it sticks to the album's concept/theme.

Both DaDa and Loodie the Pimp have been out before by Tracey. Although he does not appear to know it. I found them on a collection at a my space music page. Either he set it up and forgot it was out there or someone else put it out there. I told him I had heard Heavenly Eyes, also part of that collection. He demanded to know where I heard it at. He seemed bewildered by my response. This was at least 5-7 years ago. It’s fascinating to go back and listen to them vs what they are here. These are thicker more fleshed out remixes.

Yes, I know what you mean about the production. I didn’t notice it at first, but listening to it on my DT 990s there’s something slightly odd about the mix and vocal presence on a lot of the tracks. It’s a minor complaint though – there’s some really solid grooves here and I’m just happy to have new P-Funk album that places greater emphasis on the horn section.

That’s interesting. Quite a few of the tracks sound like they’re based on vintage outtakes. With tracks like Psychotropic and Type Two I could almost believe that I was listening to classic Brides or Parlet. DaDa is great. Riddle Me This sounds like Junie to me. cool

For sure and I don’t want to be nit picky. It’s got a smooth glossy sound to it. Kool Aid has a thick groove however to me it sounds like the music is background for the vocals. Like they are somehow sitting on top of it.

Yeah, that's it exactly. I’m really enjoying the album in any case. I felt the same as SoulAlive about Gate – it was interesting and proof that George was still capable of experimenting with new sounds, but too sprawling and chaotic for me to entirely enjoy as a whole. This is more focused. I like Trazae and the other younger members a lot, but some of that stuff feels a bit out of place here. “Mama Told Me” is great live though.
