New Millennium Funk Party gathers 20 of the most popular funk singles, including the Ohio Players' "Fire," the Staple Singers' "Respect Yourself," Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give it Up, Pt. 1," and Curtis Mayfield's "Freddie's Dead." Though this isn't Rhino's most creative or extensive funk compilation -- the label's In Yo' Face! series is much more in-depth -- it's still a solidly entertaining album. Since it also features Cameo's "Word Up," Rick James' "Super Freak," and Parliament's "Flash Light," it's more than worthwhile for casual fans.
