Top shelf funk with more than a touch of soul. "Funky Chicken" doesn't take things too seriously, keeping the groove light and fun for the most part with the exception being the sensational "Off Into A Black Thing". Strings and horns add some depth to the sound but it never drifts too far into deep funk territory, instead at times flirting with pop and disco. A great album for summer, or to take your mind off the cold dark winter. The rip I have of this album isn't tagged properly so it appears as if tracks 2 and 3 are missing but fear not, track 2 comes up as track 4 and track 3 as track 5 and so on. You dig?
