Got it around a week ago and listened to it non stop. "Torture Me" is an amazing tune. There is a lot of shit on there though. I know they have a lot of stuff because they have been missing for a while but there's no need to stick any old bollocks on.

Still 5***** for me ;)

To be quite honest, since Californication, i haven't bought whatever they did... feel like their music sounds the same, the subjects are the same (California and blabla)... and they said that they had a new sound... Dani California sounds like typical RHCP stuff... they probably take advantage of the fact that their music sound a bit like summer music and release their stuff right now, but release that album in winter and i doubt it would have the same effect... So i prefer old RHCP.

rant over

Cool for you if you like them tho

Totally agreed. They've always been playing the same kinda music for 7-8 years, I only hoped they woulda changed with their brand new record but I was wrong...
They're still amazing in concert though.

well i have every album - Red Hot Chili Peppers thru to Stadium Arcadium and I love their funk and their funk rock and their rock, and think that the progression thru them was natural and they kept the quality...

I think Blood Sugar Sex Magic or Californication are their best albums - but after listening to Stadium Arcadium for longer it will probably grow on me exxponentially :lol: :lol:


But Stadium Arcadium is so samey - I've made my own playlist of it of the 15 best songs that would have made an awesome single album -

Dani California
Snow ((Hey Oh))
Charlie
Stadium Arcadium
Hump de Bumb
She's Only 18
Torture Me
Especially in Michigan
C'mon Girl
Tell Me Baby
Hard To Concentrate
21st Century
She Looks To Me
Animal Bar
Turn it Again



the whole album has some killer solos and guitar work - the last 2 minutes of Turn It Again and the finalé of Dani California just make you feel so good if you are into rock guitar....

yeah those bits are just throw backs to the original really funky stuff they did from their Debut thru to Blood Sugar Sex Magik... although BSSM is hardly any funk compared to their first albums...

i have every one of their albums and they start off really bad, get up to mediocre, best at Blood Sugar Sex Magik (an orgasmically universally amazing album) then they taper down to a plataeu of goodness for their more recent albums..
