If Funkadelic was aimed at older rock fans and Parliament at older R&B fans, then the offshoot Bootsy's Rubber Band was aimed at younger listeners, the "geepies" in Bootsy-talk, who would be attracted to Bootsy's cartoon character and funky, cartoonish songs. His lengthy career continues with the double CD Blasters of the Universe. The first disc contains 14 songs, which recall the glory days of P-Funk with their catchy chants and elaborate vocal harmonies atop a churning, muscular dance beats. The second disc recycles eight of those tunes in extended, instrumental mixes, thus making it easier for today's hip-hop collagists to sample (and pay royalties on) Collins' inimitable grooves. After all, there's hardly a major rap act who hasn't sampled a P-Funk or Bootsy's Rubber Band track at some point. --Geoffrey Himes

"these two discs are blazing for the most part.Bootsy hardly gets the Love&respect he deserves.this man is very talented.not only on bass,but as a guitar player,keyboard player and a blazing drummer.not to mention as a writer,arranger&producer.then on top of all of that he has a blazing band that can give up the funk and take names.this is a good set.a must have for fans of the P-Funk Mob."

". IT'S REALLY ABOUT TIME people gave this young man his props ,I mean form james browns band to his own band and hanging tuff with clinton,b-52's,talking heads c'mon folks you heard him sometimes if he did not sing you knew the sound of his style , ohh, so he got funkified on this set, where have you been momma ? WAS STILL GOOD TO YOU ? This cd kicks BUTT!!!! and you get instrumentals as well.If this doesn't make you dance nothing will,unless you still find your satisfation with the rappers who can only assimilate the funk ,So on that note don't fake the funk or your nose has got to grow Baby.P.S don't forget THE OTHER MAN MR EDDIE HAZEL"
