Looking at my comparison again, I'd probably switch Freaky Styley with Californication, but I still prefer Mother's Milk to Cali.

Why? The songwriting, musicianship, musical diversity, and vocals all trail Californication.

i couldn't agree with you more. the reason frusciante doesn't shine so much is because RHCP sound is derived from the bass/drummer combo... not because hes not talented.

Music can't be quantified like that. I just feel that I prefer Mother's Milk.

Magic Johnson is a mostly average song, but it has one of my favourite riffs ever in the second half. Stone Cold Bush is my equally favourite RHCP song. Higher Ground and Fire are both great covers. Pretty Little Ditty is beautiful.

It has a great range of songs. Despite being in their crazy funk phase, apart from the above songs, they had great slower songs like Taste the Pain and Sexy Mexican Maid.

The basswork is better than Cali's, the guitarwork isn't as good and I love the presence of Flea's trumpet.


In this comparison, I'm ignoring bonus discs, as those tend to differ from country to country.

Pretty much. I am biased towards bass though, even if Frusciante is my favourite guitarist ever.

Lol. Californication has god-awful production though...Rick Rubin is generally pretty consistent.

Yes, this album is seriously hard to listen to all the way through, the production makes your ears bleed

Would be curious to hear this album remixed
