"This epic Afrobeat album contains just one eponymous track clocking in at just over 25 minutes in length, and beginning with a mysterious and psychedelic musical interplay between Fela on organ and Tony Allen on drums. As the song takes on a righteously funky groove, Fela evokes the chaos of Lagos - the multitude of regional dialects, the gnarly traffic jams, the absence of a policeman to take charge - as a metaphor for the larger problems of post-colonial Nigeria."
