The absolute pinnacle of funk, with a healthy blend of rock and psychedelia. I would give my left leg to be invited to a 1970's George Clinton party, and I don't even like parties.

Wonderful and fun, with such interesting layers and texture. No surprise to learn how influential this group and its related group, Parliament, are in the world of funk music and music generally. All the musicians are incredible, and I always gravitate guitar because that's the instrument I play, and wow, Mike Hampton and Gary Shider are superb.

Such awesome sounds, one nation under a groove man. Incredible guitarmanship, rythems and bass lines make this musically tight. But it's the craziness the songs they go in place you don't expect all while a kind of dogmatic lyrics of absurdness play out. You cannot underestimate one bands devotion to one word and one concept Funk and this is it.

Practically flawless funk album. Only previously heard Maggot Brain, so this felt much more traditional. All the tracks are flawless. Didn't even notice how long they were until I needed to use the bathroom but decided not until the song was over. Rock comes in the later tracks. I was a little nervous because Eddie Hazel wasn't in this album, but no, this guitarist is insane. Works really well creating the funk rhythm. Vocals are superb. It's a whole crowd having fun, full of humor and energy. All the vocals, rhythm, and instruments work in harmony together. Everyone works together to create what I consider to be the pinnacle of funk. Gets milder in the last two tracks but still great tracks. Favorite tracks: "One Nation Under a Groove", "Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis Enema Squad"

Can hear the influence on early Red Hot Chilli Peppers and a ton of Prince . More funky than Psychedelic , but definitely unique . Funkadelic stand in a league of their own stylistically ; moreover , the musicianship is next to none . Some solid bass playing and jam out sessions by all.

Pretty great live/studio funk record that I had to go to YouTube to hear. It’s a shame, as this album has an entire collection of funky sounds, grooves and riffs to last the entire hour run-time. Great instrumentation, as to be expected from Funkadelic. Standout is the penultimate track, with its extended guitar solo, and mournful sound that perfectly encapsulates the negative feelings described throughout in the lyrics.

Psychedelic Freak Funkrock, frisch vom Mutterschiff - wem da nicht Hose und Hirn platzen, der ... sollte sich mal die eine anziehen und das andere ausknipsen, oder? Mich jedenfalls kickt diese in ihrer ernsthaften Albernheit und Weirdness ja auch wahnsinnig integrative, einfach alle Völker rauschartig verschmelzende Sex- und Koks- und LSD-Mischung ("One Nation Under A Groove", remember?) mit zunehmendem Alter immer mehr. Weiß auch nicht warum, aber so isses ja nun mal. Da passiert einfach so viel! Herrlich, wie es überall schengelt und bumst an Deck, und blubbert und quietscht und lickt und wie die größte Angst darin besteht, von einem Sandwich gegessen zu werden: bitte beamen Sie mich hoch, denn who says an old white cis male can't jump? Abgesehen davon natürlich auch beeindruckend: die bei aller Verpeiltheit schiere technische Perfektion (das Live Medley, meine Güte!), die aber nie auch nur in die Nähe von kaltem Muckertum gerät. In dem Zusammenhang allerdings auch anzumerken: gegen Ende wird's mir mit der P E Squad ein bisschen ZU verpeilt. Aber hey: sonnige 4 Punkte schicken wir auf jeden Fall ins All!

I used to have the title track of this album on a couple of playlists years ago, but never heard much more by Funkadelic. I still absolutely love the title track and there were also some more good parts on this album, especially Who Says A Funk Band Can't Play Rock and the live track Maggot Brain which both have some sick guitars. It's not the kind of music I want to listen to for too long in one go or particularly often. But for every once in a while it's pretty good.

Но всё-таки не могу не признать, что душевное музло и с немалой долей угара, что уважабельно (посмотреть на названия хотя бы).

Absolute banger. Legitimate album to listen to before you die - not just for itself but also for everything else that came after: No G Funk, Daisy Age hip hop or Neptunes prosecutions without this band. And it’s just so damn funky - impossible to stay still when listening to this. There are a few tracks that overstay their welcome ("Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis Enema Squad (The Doo Doo Chasers)"). But overall an absolute classic.

I don’t know anything about this band or record. But I’ll “get down just for the funk of it.” I don’t know this for certain but there have to be people in this band who played with the Talking Heads in the 80s. Yep. Just looked it up. Bernie Worrell. Synth player on Stop Making Sense. This is probably less conducive to listening while working because it deserves to be played loud at 2:30 am, when you’ve really decided to make a real night of it… Highlights: One Nation Under a Groove; the title “Maggot Brain.”

I was surprised to learn that Eddie Hazel had nothing to do with this record. The P-Funk roster is DEEP. Obviously this is funky, but there's a prog rock thing happening here that's super interesting. A couple of the tracks (especially the bits with the repetitive call and response) fell flat for me. Best track: One Nation Under A Groove

I definitely like this. It felt more energetic and and varied than other funk I frequently come across. another one where context and recent albums come into play. It's a 3.5 for me, but when I compare it to the Parliament from the other day, I liked this a fair bit more. I think I'll bump it to a 4 because of that.

This was fun and took some unexpected detours. If you came here for funk (and let’s be honest- of course you did) you won’t be disappointed. But the band plays rock just as well - even getting into prog rock territory on Side Two of the album! Fave tracks: “One Nation Under a Groove” “Lunchmeataphobia (Think! it ain’t illegal yet!)” “Who says a Funk Band Can’t play Rock?”

They had me at "Musical Bowel Movement". I'm going to need George Clinton to resolve all of the license issues he has with our go-to streaming services, because this thing slaps and slaps hard. As of this writing, the only way you can listen to this album in its entirety is on YouTube, which, is fine I guess. I seriously considered buying a physical copy of the album on vinyl or CD. Maybe that's what George Clinton wants from all of us. If that's the case, we shouldn't argue with the Godfather of Funk.

An enjoyable funk album with some of the better elements of disco music. I like that the overall vibe is lightweight and even a bit humourous, with an emphasis on FUN (perhaps even tongue in cheek). I loved things like the doowop backing vocals on Groove allegiance and the song titles themselves. Overall I felt like I was listening to an album length version of Sly & Family Stone 'Dance to the Music', which is a good thing!

I got to see Parliament Funkadelic in the early 2000s. Was epic, but I don't think I fully understood the history of the group. This Funkadelic album did a lot for music a the funk scene. They made it fun, while also addressing some issues. A great live version of Maggot Brain, which (to me) is the best song they've produced. It's just so dense. Rarely do I sit down and really listen to a Funkadelic album front to back and I wasn't sure if I'd really enjoy the whole ride. I did. I did enjoy the ride.

"One Nation Under A Groove" is tirelessly energetic, relentlessly funky and has to be one of the best parties of the 1970s. It radiates positivity, optimism and fun for most of its running time, at the hands of George Clinton and the vast roster of incredible musicians. The album was released originally as a 40 minute set before a bonus EP was added with a great live edition of "Maggot Brain": I've focused just on the original LP here. For its entire seven and a half minutes, the title track never lets up. From its bouncy bassline to the various vocal hooks rippling through it, it's infinitely danceable and impossible to resist. Next, the sprightly "Groovallegiance" brings some levity (Bernie Worrell knocking it out of the park with an uncomplicated keyboard solo, and Clinton with some beautiful falsetto in the verses). "Who Says A Funk Band Can't Play Rock" is another prime cut: a Hendrix-esque riff transforming into a celebration of musical inclusivity and genre diversity. The band pull off the amazing feat of stuffing the arrangements to the rafters with overlapping lead parts, flourishes and production tricks, but leave room for spontaneity in the energetic performances. As an ensemble, they lock together perfectly and keep the songs feeling fresh throughout, despite the length of many of them. There's also a great sense of humour and playfulness running throughout the whole record, but the scales only tip slightly too far with "Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis", the only place the record loses some credibility for me. This jam is long and unfocused by comparison, in an awkward jumble of spoken word prayer with the makings of a lovely soul ballad in the background. I'm too prudish to enjoy hearing about a musical bowel movement to clear my mental diarrhoea. Whether they thought of it as a novel metaphor, a parody of evangelism or just a joke, it just brings down the impact for me. Despite this, though, as a whole it's a sheer delight. The power of Funkadelic is such that they're enough to make you believe fried ice cream really could be a reality.

This is not a reviews, but Id like to read about the album @ wikipedia One Nation Under a Groove is the tenth studio album by American funk rock band Funkadelic, released on September 22, 1978 on Warner Bros. Records. Recording sessions took place at United Sound Studio in Detroit, Michigan, with one song recorded live on April 15, 1978 at the Monroe Civic Center in Monroe, Louisiana. The album was the first album to include keyboardist and frequent songwriter Walter "Junie" Morrison. One Nation Under a Groove was Funkadelic's most commercially successful album, reaching number 1 on the Billboard Magazine Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, number 16 on the Billboard 200, and being certified platinum in the US. It reached number 58 in Canada. It was one of the band's most critically lauded albums, and ranks at or near the top of many "best album" lists in disparate genres. The album was later featured on Vibe magazine's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century list. The album is ranked number 177 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time in both 2003 and 2012 editions, before moving to number 360 in the 2020 edition. The album is listed as one of the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

3.6 + The blend of genres, the communal feel, and the sheer funk - you can't deny the ambition and scope of vision here. Purely as a listening experience, though, it can get tiring to wade through some of the extended jam sessions. For me, it sometimes sounds too crowded. I'm a bigger fan of "Maggot Brain" as a more coherent record, though it's not as accomplished as a funk record or amalgam of genres.

I like the funk, this feels like the soundtrack that was playing in the background during the 70s. But I feel the album could have been literally half the length and that honestly would have improved it. Too many of the songs started strong and then just repeated themselves over and over, until I was almost sick of them. Would have been amazing live, but could've really used a bit of restraint on the recording. I do really like a lot of what's going on, there's so many good ideas that still feel fresh and I love the casual rock break in the middle of the album. I think it deserves a bit higher than the 3 I'm giving it, it seems like it was probably groundbreaking at the time, but a 4 would be too much credit given I was not able to finish it.

I used to go do drugs to music like this in clubs so I am probably biased.

Negated my going outside anxiety and I didn't feel the blister forming on my heel as I walked so points. However I didn't save any of the music to listen to later so I can't rate above a three

Supongo que para estar de chill haciendo cualquier otra cosa que no requiera mucha concentración pues está bien como el resto del album pero no sé esta no es mi mierda Lunchmeataphobia: un poco más pasable que las otras pero again not a big fan P E Squad/Doo Doo Chasers (Going All-The-Way-Off Instrumental Version): aaaaaah esta siiiii es súper de chill jo me encanta qué bonita Bonustrack: One Nation Under a Groove (Instrumental Disco Mix): halaaa siiii qué bailoteable me gusta me gusta QUÉ GUAY es que dios merece la pena escuchar el album por esta canción sola - la mezcla de coros con la guitara.....ES QUE JODER Pues no había escuchado este género tan seguido y la verdad es que qué sorpresa - el album tiene temas que a mi se me hacen bastante repetitivos y me dan dolor de cabeza pero luego tiene otros que simplemente son geniales y me encantan como el último. Le iba a dar un 5 y medio o así pero es que esta última canción eleva el album a otro nivel es que es genial Puntuación: un 6.5, el album es super bonito pero yo no soy muy de este género y me da dolor de cabeza. Seguro que si lo escucho más veces me hago el oído y lo disfruto más pero por ahora se queda con esa nota

This band definitely lives up to its name. Sweet bass work by Bootsy, Skeet, and Boogie (who'd expect anything less from those guys?). Love the grooves, but - just like SNL makes the mistake of turning a two-minute sketch into a two-hour long movie - the grooves become less enjoyable at about the 4-minute mark.

Wow this is long. Its a mixture of funk and kinda like psychadelic rock? Lots of long guitar solos which is not my favourite. But the funkier and more melodic moments are really fun - I really like "Into you" and "One nation under a groove" .

Aside from the iconic title track I wasn't really into the funk portion of this one. The rock tracks on the second half were well done and enjoyable though. Saved the whole album after that horrendous ten minute poop song.

I am not that fond of long -adelic songs that just keeps on going to try to bubble up some kind of high from deep within the bowels of the listener, you really have to be high on funk to really get into this. But I mean who can really say no to the funk, all the funk, and nothing but the funk? 3 stars Maggotbrain is of course on the album, so gotta give it something And wtf is lunchmeataphobia. Everything about that track is a little repulsive.

More of a jam album, closer to Frank Zappa than to funk. As an album listening experience, it doesn’t offer anything truly exceptional, regardless of the truly impressive musicianship.

Je n'ai pas très bien compris pourquoi, malgré un talent musical indéniable, le groupe a fait le choix de demander à tous ses membres de parler en même temps en guise de fond sonore. C'est extrêmement désagréable. Autre point dérangeant, je trouve assez scandaleux que le groupe ait choisi le nom de Funkadelic, car il est bien connu que le style funk appartient au seul et unique roi de la funk, Sinclair Si c'est bon comme ça. Une belle preuve de manque de culture et de respect envers les aînés de la funk, que je me dois de sanctionner.

Was disappointed to find it a little boring. It's more toward the groove side than funk. Many long jam tracks with repetitive melodies and lyrics. I prefer the songs where it tips toward the rock style. The live version of Maggot Brain is pretty cool though.

Well, you know. Worthy. Indulgent. Sometimes plain dull. (Ok, to be fair, idk how groundbreaking this was in the day itself. But I do know that other groups - Brass Construction, Skyy, Dynasty, the funkier parts of the Solar Records roster, generally - grabbed the ball and ran much further with it. Give the guy a living legend medal and move along, I think.

The cool thing about this 1001 album generator is that it challenges me to listen to music I would otherwise avoid. Funk's not really my thing, so I haven't been exposed to much funk, but I heard that Funkadelic is a great place to start. I'm glad I listened, it was a head-bobbing, FUNky listen alright and this will lead me to sample more from Funkadelic. Really...Thanks generator!

Much less funky than their previous efforts (though the funk is still present) this album is more focused on bringing a more rock sound to the funkiest people on the planet. They do indeed rock as well as funk. Not their best. Best Tracks: One Nation Under a Groove; Who Says a Funk Band Can't Play Rock Music?! Cholly (Funk Getting Ready To Roll!)

I know I'm supposed to view this group through a funk lens, but there is so much rock and jam in this album, I don't think it's right to limit my view. That idea is perfect captured both lyrically and musically in the track 'Who Says a Funk Band Can't Play Rock?!" Building from that idea, I think that spirit is a major part of why this album leaves such an indelible impression. Each track forces you to open your mind further and further, both on what you think the band is, and on various serious and nonsensical topics. But none of it comes across as heavy handed. They just want to help bring one nation together under a groove! Highlight tracks for me would be 'One Nation Under a Groove', 'Cholly', and especially 'Maggot Brain / Chant'.

It took some searching, with "One Nation Under a Groove" unavailable on Amazon Music, to get into the groove. But YouTube saved the day, and my frustration was washed away by the funk. My toes were tapping, my day was brightened. Funk is not necessarily my thing, but I won't say no to this. Well, maybe I would say no to the "musical bowel movement" of "Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis Enema Squad (The Doo Doo Chasers)" - those are some absolutely hilarious lyrics to read, but it's a bit agonizing to listen to. Though I do appreciate that it helped to rid me of moral diarrhea, social bullshit, crazy doo doo, and mental poots.

George Clinton and his band of funk masters are...weird. Undeniably so. They embrace the psychedelic while maintaining the black excellence of the funk genre. This culminates in a lot of songs that are certainly funky but also strange, not dissimilar to Frank Zappa's work. This leads to a varying level of quality where the bizarre approach holds back the better aspects of the music, but other times instills a memorable quality while the music is still able to speak for itself. Obvious highlight is Maggot Brain, which carries the whole album imo. This was their breakthrough album but I much prefer some of the earlier stuff. Not bad though.

Dang, I've been looking forward to some P-Funk of any kind, and we get a signature album that for some reason isn't on Apple Music or Spotify. It's solid though, very enjoyable grooves from start to finish. I'm still patiently waiting for the day we get Maggot Brain, that's the kind of Funkadelic I need in my life. But this one's really good too! Favorite Tracks: One Nation Under a Groove, Promental whatever, Lunchmeataphobia. Album art: I've seen this many times, I love the art style and colors. Trying to find this album on Apple Music, I saw a ton of amazing album covers like this one, Funkadelic seems to have done that right. 3.5/5

This should be better. It starts well but quickly fades into background music because it's so samey throughout. I kept forgetting I was listening to it. It's obviously very influential, you can play 'spot the sample' throughout the thing. Disappointing though, I thought it would be more and it so veryn early was.

Вообще не выкупал прикола фанка никогда. В детстве засел момент из Джимми Нейтрона вроде, там тян ни с того ни с сего врубает какое-то унылое музло и говорит, мол «отрываемся под самый лучший жанр, фанк». А на неё все смотрят как на ебанутую. Думал, для комического эффекта подобрали какую-то уныль, типа как в Папиных дочках выбирали какую-то муть для демонстрации якобы готик-рока Даши. А нет, действительно, весь фанк, что слышал, звучит как the thing that should not be. Так что там по альбому. Да снова архачиная одиозная уныль. Заглавный трек вообще пустышка назойливая, но, бля, при этом внесён в зал славы рок-н-ролла, ну охуеть теперь. Треки скучные и надоедливые, названия всратые. Последний трек правда хорош, но занимает то же место в альбоме, что и New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down в Sound of Silver, будто говорит: «Смотри, мы могли бы нормальное музло играть, но не стали, хы-ы». Ну и идите нахуй тогда.

I've heard of Funkadelic and other George Clinton projects. I'm not sure if I've heard any tracks specifically from Funkadelic or not. All of the tracks on this album were new to me.

I did love the title track of this album. The next two songs were okay if just a little long and tedious. And then there was an eleven-minute song about bowel movements and fried ice cream that just lost me. And the rest just kind of went on from there. Like many albums I've experienced here, I like the sound of short samples when I listen again, but it was the hour-long experience that was more negative.

The title track is a classic, I like the way it seems to start in the middle of the song. The rest of the album, I dunno. There are a few more slow jams than I was expecting. I’m not exactly bolting to the dance floor when I hear it. I like their sense of humour, but the 11-minute song about shit is longer than it needs to be.

Much less insane than Maggot Brain. The long jams remain, but aren't as excessive or weird. Strangely, I sort of miss the cuckoo clocks and assorted animal noises.
