"...considered to be one of the best in Parliament's catalog. It is a loose concept album warning the listener of falling into the 'Placebo Syndrome', which according to George Clinton is consumerism, and listening to disco music, which he saw as a simplification of funk music in attempt to gain commercial success. The album spawned a number #1 single in "Flash Light", which features a funky synthesizer bass line played by keyboardist Bernie Worrell. The album became Parliament's fourth consecutive gold album and second platinum album."
