Album Review

How frustrating it is that one of the most vital and dynamic bands of the 1980s, the Time, broke up after only three albums. When the Time reunited in 1990 after a six-year absence from the studio, there was excitement as well as cautious optimism in the R&B world. The big question: Would the chemistry still be there? And the answer turned out to be a definite "yes." Humorous, inventive, and unapologetically funky, Pandemonium is an excellent party album that's every bit as strong as its three predecessors. Leader Morris Day is as amusing and confident as ever, and the distinctive unit still used the influence of George Clinton and mentor Prince to great artistic advantage. Those who savored the Time's three previous albums will find that on gems like "Chocolate," "Jerk Out," and the rock-influenced "Blondie" (a fine vehicle for Jesse Johnson's electric guitar), the old magic asserts itself without hesitation. This is a disc that no fan of the Minneapolis sound should be without.

The second best CD of the 90's

All of my friends were into the whole grunge scene in the 90's and I hated it. While they were dressing and listening to the whole Seattle thing I was one of the fellows that was jerking everything in sight!!!

A Surprising Gem

Timing is everything and this album was an unfortunate victim of being released when smooth dance-able R&B was out of style. It's unfortunate, because this is a tremendously fun collection of songs. For the most part this is a smooth and sexy party album with a great flow. It's glossy and full of decadent over-production. As usual Morris Day commands your attention and Jesse Johnson's guitar screams across the slick rhythm section. File under fun and retro summer driving music.

This album sat in my collection for 10 years

While getting ready for a long drive from Philly to Maine, I grabbed this 10 - year untouched disc from my bookshelf just to see why I didn't seem to like it. Well. That was that. It got played all the way up the coast, all week long on the coast and down the coast a week later. A truly great mix of songs. I couldn't believe how good everything was, from the between-songs chatter to the music itself. Puts a lot of other groups trying to achieve some funk to shame. Seems to be out of print in stores, so buy this here, now!! WORTH IT.

Biography

Formed: 1981 in Minneapolis, MN

Genre: R&B/Soul

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

From their origins as Prince's first pet project to their self-produced funk-rock oeuvre, the Time has been a fascinating and outrageous congregation. Vocalist Morris Day infused his cocky, swaggering personality into dance hits that would make Rufus Thomas envious, and, unlike most of the competition, the band managed to do something unique with Prince's genre-busting innovations. The Time broke up in the late '80s, with Day going on to a somewhat disastrous solo career, Jesse Johnson crafting two...
