The world did not need a third P-Funk clone after the artificial bifurcation of Parliament and Funkadelic, nor did said clone need to be produced by Bootsy. The music's good enough in a basic sense, I suppose, but notable mostly in its quantity than their quality ("Coming Home" in particular could have been twice as good if it were half as long) and its repetitiousness drags the 40 minute runtime out into six sometimes interminable tracks. I like a 12" as much as the next guy, but give me something new to listen to. Still, "Funky Balance" on, er, balance manages to exceed its unnecessary length with a legitimate if repetitive groove, "Be Alright" is a solid R&B outing, and of course the classic "More Bounce to the Ounce" — almost stylistically out of place with its enthusiastic new wave funk — starts the album off strong. The chief issue is that it goes downhill from there; no amount of juice can save it from its own self-cannibalization. (Content: mild adult themes.)
