Starchild Zapp July 22,2019 : this album is one of the motherlode's of funk music, this is a landmark album for p-funk, it change the world and face and sound of funk music as we know today, p-funk took funk to a level nobody cant fuck with period, and its still kicking ass to this date, the only group that can go toe to toe with them is: earth, wind and fire, with help of one William Bootsy Collins on this and many other p-funk albums to follow after, p-funk is in a league of there own and history they have laid down speaks volumes, you will never ever see anything like this world again, may in the next world, this album is a must have, George retiring at the end of this year and Bootsy having to stop touring at the beginning of this year, to all go and see them while you can and enjoy the real funk because there's only one P-FUNK , P.S. happy birthday George, promise to funk, promise to keepth the funk, the hold funk nothin' but the FUNK, the P that is!!!!

This is the definitive album that stands the test of time. It never should have taken as long as it did for these guys to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The CONNECTION is truly as groundbreaking today as it was back in 75'!!!

There are no words for this album. Just listen to it. An intergalactic and ecstatic masterpiece.
"P. Funk", "Mothership Connection", and "Give Up the Funk" are incredible. "Unfunky UFO" and "Thumpasaurus Peoples" are very good as well. "Supergroove" and "Handcuffs" are skippable.
It makes me sad to think that so many people lack such funk in their lives!
