this and One Hot Minute (being the clinically depressed black sheep in the Chili's back catalogue) are the only ones I would still listen to, having been a total fanatic when I was younger loving every album. this was obviously their big transition into classic melody, leaving the funk/metal thing behind slightly.

the title track has pretty much everything i'd want from a pop song - cool changes, good lyrics and no showboating. lav iiiit

Here is a few more tid-bits about this album. The lyrics for Californication was actually penned in 1991 during the writing process for Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

Great B-Sides of the album include: Gong Li, Instrumental 1 & 2, Teatro Jam, Phat Dance, Over Funk, Quixoticelixer, How Strong, and Bunkerhill, which wasn't recorded until the By the Way album and was on a Fortune Faded B-Side.

Christ its closer to allegory then metaphor, as I said before wait until you've done more than fourth grade english please. All you really know is about periods and punctuations, stick to that. Its imagery, simple as that.
Oh my god, lay off him. If he's "just in seventh grade" that doesn't justify saying he's as dumb as a fourth grader because he doesn't know what a metaphor is, which I think he might. I mean, sometimes when I read these types of posts I wonder if your incentive is to be productive, or start an argument. Why you would want to start an argument, I don't know. But you act fifteen, I hope your not thirty for your maturities sake.
Maybe it's just arrogance.

Ethan's post there is two years old, back when ethan was a total douche who loved slipknot. Back then ethan loved all kinds of shitty metal and as such was a shitty poster.

So yeah, a bit late there tbh.

I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Californication is a good album, but is by no means a classic. For me, this album doesn't come close to BSSM or OHM for that matter. Old rhcp were better.
