A perfect slice of P Funk. "Bop Gun", "Funkentelechy", and "Flashlight" are life-changing. "Sir Nose" is alright, a little long for my taste, and the other two songs are pretty boring, but they could be written and performed by One Direction and the album would still be a masterpiece just given those incredible 3 tracks.
I remember when I first listened to this record, a year ago, when I was 13, on a road trip, dusk was coming on, and I was transported to the stars by the horns (Fred Wesley?) on "Funkentelechy".
Cannot recommend this enough. I will come to your house and force you to listen until you are GROOVIN'!
I wish I had one of those Nose D'voidoffunk posters!

Some copies of this album (mine included), came with a free poster of 'SirNoseDevoidofFunk', and a comic charting the adventures of this character created by Parliament for this release.

Flashlight is one of the best pure funk tracks ever recorded, by the greatest funk band of all time.

this is the 1st record i ever bought w/ my own money, back in about '78. i was 10.

i didn't realise that there was a storyline to follow, so i always played side 2 1st, and i still do it when i put on the album.
