268 War – The World Is a Ghetto

War’s third album as an act separate from Eric Burdon was also far and away their most popular, the group’s only long-player to top the pop charts. The culmination of everything they’d been shooting for creatively on their two prior albums, it featured work in both succinct pop-accessible idioms as well as challenging extended pieces such as the 13-minute “City, Country, City” and the title track, and encompassed not only soul and funk but elements of blues and psychedelia. – AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder
