As with its predecessor, Gloryhallastoopid (1979), there's not much of interest to be found on Trombipulation, the final Parliament album. "Agony of Defeet" is the highlight and "Let's Play House" is also notable, yet even these songs are relatively dull when you compare them to Parliament-Funkadelic standouts such as "Flashlight" or "One Nation Under a Groove" from only a few years prior. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Trombipulation is how it finds Parliament in free fall, seemingly out of good ideas and sounding downright uninspired. It's no wonder Clinton dissolved the group after this album's wake -- after both Gloryhallastoopid and Trombipulation, it'd become apparent Parliament had run its course and had become creatively bankrupt. To Clinton's credit, though, his latter-day Funkadelic albums, including The Electric Spanking of War Babies (1981) remained worthwhile, and subsequent albums, namely Computer Games (1982) and Urban Dancefloor Guerillas (1983), were especially exciting. Yet for whatever reason, the last couple Parliament albums were duds.

Philadelphia Soul, Funk with a Bow Tie

Neither Motown nor Stax Records! Philadelphia Soul offered a third voice of its own. Created by the Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff duo, this genre - the precursor of disco - made America dance in the early 70s by soaking it in silk and champagne.

What's Going On, Marvin ?

In the beginning, there was "What's Going On", one of the greatest soul records ever, released 50 years ago. This is the story of how Marvin Gaye changed the history of the Motown label and of popular music in the 1970s.

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.
