    The Music is a little bit too "Outsider" for my taste, but the instrumentals are pretty good.
    However track 3 on Side A (Master ship) is an ABSOLUTE BANGER, and is pretty close to a synth ridden religious experience

      This album sounds like a non-musician heard Parliament/Funkadelic and thought "I could do that!" Then, after acquiring some basic keyboard skills, silver paint and roller skates, set about recording their "masterpiece." Much about this release unambiguously references P Funk, but everything about those references is superficial. It's almost eerie to hear at times, a lost synth-pop-leaning P Funk album with everything good about P Funk boiled away, so that what is left absolutely recalls P Funk, but is sterile and unfunky, undanceable despite exhortations that the listener "get funky." George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic even get a shout out in the lyrics.

      The record features only keys,a rinky dink drum machine, and reedy, shouty vocals (with occasional torch song belting), punctuated with sci-fi synth "pew pew pew!" sounds. Most tracks are more rudimentary sketches than songs. No groove, no funk, no hook, no interplay of instruments, no charisma. Imagine if the Shaggs had been bursting with confidence demanding to be heard instead of awkward wallflowers forced into the spotlight. Their performance would have been different, but it wouldn't have been any more competent. As an underground outsider album by an amateur, there is some appeal and charm aboard the "Mastership." The Starship Commander Wooooo Wooooo's enthusiasm is a little infectious. With the help of J & H Productions, he could have achieved something close to lift off. But as a work of music or art, it's a near total misfire. One star? Five stars? No stars? All the stars? What are stars, anyway?

          This is a really really great album. Between Kraftwerk, Suicide, Post Punk and Funk. I dont know why there is only one print. The World is Wrong, not you Starship Commander Wooo Wooo
