#478: Maggot Brain by Funkadelic

1.18.2011


Maggot Brain by Funkadelic (1971)

Favorite Track(s): "Maggot Brain" and "Can You Get to That" and "Hit It and Quit It" and "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks" and "Super Stupid"

Thoughts: It will come as no surprise that I like neither the album cover nor its name. Icky and claustrophobic.

Irregardless, Eddie Hazel is a-mah-zing. His gutiar solo on "Maggot Brain" is incredible. And how bold to start out the album with such a heavy track!

You guys, this album is legit. And while I'd heard of George Clinton, I was unaware of Funkadelic. I highly recommend this--especially the first 6 songs. I thought I liked funk, but now I know I LOVE it. Well, this kind of funk. Funk that ROCKS.

Honestly, one of my favorite albums I've listened to so far. Didn't want it to end.

Yes, Funk that rocks. Love this album. DJ Krush ended the night with this song at one of his concerts. Mind blowing. Peace.
