PopMatters
But if you have some Parliament at home and do not own Chocolate City, I recommend picking up this new reissue. If you do buy it, put it in your CD player, go to the second trackand follow Clinton’s call to the dance floor: “Put a hump in your back, shake your sacroiliacand ride on!” […]

Pitchfork
Of course, it’s hard to find a lot of faults with a record so consistently on the verge of something huge. But then, the best was yet to come. […]

Rolling Stone
Whereas the old, guitar-centered band glowered at the straight world from its freak-trench, Parliament found a way to party with it —; and still bring their own Babel of stoned jokes, invented alter egos and dirty, funny innuendo. […]
