CD Reviews

Great music, but a disappointing product

(3 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD partly on the strength of the Rough Guide review that described it as a compilation of "full-length" versions. Although it's a very well-chosen collection of songs, it's not true that all the tracks are full-length: at least two definitely aren't. I'm speaking of "Spill the Wine" (in which the second verse is completely omitted) and "The World Is a Ghetto" (which is nowhere near the length of the original album version). It's especially a shame because it's such a great-looking package and there is surely plenty of room on a two-disc set for the full-length versions."
War...proves themselves to be most worthy Funksters

"One of the 70's most Influential funk acts, with the impressively consistant catalogue of acknowledged hits, that even to this day, are a marvel in soul-laden grooves than have found their unique music, sampled relentlessly into the dance music scene, (although prominently in the `house' & `R&b' music fields). "Slippin' into Darkness" is a widely sampled track, and its easy to see why..slickly produced, impeccably sung, and toe-tappingly funky, and much of what on this album sticks to that template, of keeping the listeners attention for the use of P-funk, soaring Choruses (sometimes sung by several members in a upwardly spiralling crescendo), also providing significant firepower in getting their funk itinerary across, are "The World Is a Ghetto", "Low Rider" (which is such a excellent track, it's frequently used in films, has been used in a TV. commercial & been cover-versioned by metallers "Korn") & "Why Can't We Be Friends?"......a case of Soul-funkers on a mission to convert the uninformed???...Mission accomplished!!!"
