The story of this Parliament record is that the band took them self as being an Alien lifeform from outer space, and the mission was bringing p-funk music to planet earth. Nevertheless this record is the ultimate Parliament record for me. It is some seriously crazy stuff in there but incredible musicians are bringing the mothership ahead with Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker from James Browns band among some. Acid drugs were a big part in forging this music, and the result was P-funk at is best, yet humorous and fun.

The clones get up and do their thing throughout, and if it's not The Wall, then that's all to its benefit. The immediate downside of Clones is that it's a fairly one-note record - every groove can just about be exchanged for any other one, unlike the wider variety apparent on other releases. Given Clinton and company's sheer work rate, something likely had to give and this is one of the stress points. There are a couple of stronger songs - "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)" is classic slow jam territory.

So in short, Parliament wants you to get silly and dance your ass off to their funky rhythms. It’s a rather simple idea and maybe to some people it’s too simple for The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein to really be considered concept album. Concept album or not, their method works really well and is fairly unique and influential giving their leader, George Clinton, the well deserved title of King of Funk (or Dr. Funkenstein as they call i. It’s well thought out party music that’s fun, strange, and tries to loosely follow a story about alien clones. Who could ask for more"

This album is the followup to the brilliant Mothership Connection, which is an absolute classic. In concept The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein stays on the same path as the former (Dr. Funkenstein, Starchild’s ally, is introduced, and we get to know that the pyramids contain all the secrets of the Funk), but in musical terms the album tries to be a little more commercial. You might say; less nasty. Don’t let that scare you because this album is still classic Parliament. The grooves are tight and the singing is the most soulful I’ve ever heard (thanks to Glen Goins)
