The only indication this is a Canadian release is a tiny "printed in Canada" on the lower spine.

I don't often write reviews here or comment, other people on this website are much better at summarising albums' qualities, but now I feel like I have to write at least something because HOW THE HELL THERE ARE NO COMMENTS FOR THIS MASTERPIECE?

For me, while the timeless title track is a stand-out here, every track contains a masterful production and is beautifully put together.

The mandatory funk album to listen for every funk fan out there. "Cisko Kid" is one of my favorite album openers, "Where Was You At" is one of those tracks that makes me want to move in my seat everytime I play it. The background vocals that repeat the phrase "Where Was You At" are so DOPE. What follows after, is a remarkable 13-minute long instrumental piece 'City, Country, City" which takes you on a journey, you just need to close your eyes and let it work its magic. "Four Cornered Room" is one of the deepest tracks on this album with a slow tempo and powerful lyrics; has potential to easily induce goosebumps if you listen closely. The same potential has the title track, "The World Is A Ghetto". Well, there is no way I can easily sum up this brilliant track, I just need to say that it is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It's okay if you get tears in your eyes while listening to it, there is no shame in that. For me, the most intense part is always right at the end, when the phrase The World Is A Ghetto gets repeated over and over and over with the electric guitar playing on top, while song slowly fades out. What a moment it is.
