So far:

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Like a weird, Prog album with funk parts...more Rock guitar than I expected...but mostly just plain weird and drony in places. Not bad though...

Sly & The Family Stone - There's A Riot Goin' On
Boring as shit.

Next up:

T. Rex - Electric Warrior
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers

If you can't tell, it's a 1971 theme...

Funkadelic did the experimental stuff, Parliament did the more straight-ahead funk.

Man, I think that Sly and the Family Stone album is a classic, personally I think it is a great album.

I also love that T. Rex and Rolling Stones disc and are among my favorite albums

I wanted to try Sly because dUg Pinnick is a huge fan, I like a couple of the hits, and this album came out in my birth year...but man, it is NOT hitting me thus far.

Give it a little time, it may hit you when you are not excepting it
