Stand! winds up infectious and informative, invigorating and thought-provoking -- stimulating in every sense of the word. Few records of its time touched it, and Sly topped it only by offering its opposite the next time out.

The Guardian
The protracted blues jam Sex Machine is one of those things that presumably made perfect sense in the late 1960s, like men in kaftans, screwing for peace and the career of Fanny Cradock. Today it just sounds interminable.

Sex Machine is one of funk's hardest jams, and I want to Take You Higher, and who doesn't love Everyday People? I Love this group, man.
