Chocolate City

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Parliament's second album for Casablanca, following Up for the Down Stroke 1974, Chocolate City isn't one of the group's better-known albums. Unlike its predecessor and successive albums such as Mothership Connection 1976, it lacks a signature hit; even though the title track and "Ride On" charted as singles, they're minor in comparison to definitive classics such as "Up for the Down Stroke" and "Give Up the Funk Tear the Roof Off the Sucker." Though it's not one of the better-known Parliament albums, Chocolate City is nonetheless one of their best and perhaps most underrated. There's a wealth of musical talent to be heard here -- most notably Bootsy Collins, Bernie ...

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Parliament's second album for Casablanca, following Up for the Down Stroke 1974, Chocolate City isn't one of the group's better-known albums.

Though it's not one of the better-known Parliament albums, Chocolate City is nonetheless one of their best and perhaps most underrated. There's a wealth of musical talent to be heard here -- most notably Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, and Eddie Hazel -- and an emphasis on horns and harmony vocals. Plus, there's no overarching narrative as there would be on successive albums, occasionally to a fault. Instead, this is a collection of stand-alone songs, none topping the six-minute mark. Regardless of its lack of signature hits, Chocolate City is a Parliament album that shouldn't be overlooked.
