Warthur
Recorded hot on the heels of Mothership Connection, The Clones of Dr Funkenstein suffers in comparison to the preceding Parliament, and when you consider that the P-Funk collective was also bringing together Hardcore Jollies on the Funkadelic side of things at around the same time it does seem that at around this point in time they were overstretching them. The over-long, over-repetitive songs on Clones all sound a little like rejected ideas from Mothership Connection, with comedy monster dialogue here and there cluttering up the tracks. That said, the spritely horn section does add a little class to proceedings and saves the album from being outright tedious.
