Specialists/collaborators reviews

Unitron
Moving away from the post-punk styling of the debut with funk legend George Clinton of Parliament/Funkadelic fame at the producer's helm, Freaky Styley shows the Chili Peppers record the closest to a pure funk album they've ever done.

When I think of an ultimate party album, this is one of the first I think of. This funk goes hard, and with the album cover showing the band jumping and flipping around in front of Michelangelo's The Last Judgement, there's still some punk attitude too. Songs like Jungle Man, American Ghost Dance, the title track, Blackeyed Blonde, The Brothers Cup, punky Catholic School Girls Rule, and Yertle the Turtle are all particular favorites of mine. The Brothers Cup and the title track especially, the former with its swaggering bassline and swinging horns and the latter with a unique aggression for funk.

Freaky Styley isn't the party funk metal album that Mother's Milk is, but it is a party funk album. This is funky bass heaven.
