Haha. I agree old RHCP were better but I wouldn't consider BSSM or OHM to be part of the "old" era.

RHCP WERE better when they were on all their drugs, but you have to give them props for cleaning up. Their music before was way stranger, too.
Nice review, too brief though.

Is great/classic supposed to be better than flawless?
I know some classic albums that are far from flawless.

Eh, yeah but Flea had cleaned up his act for the most part and Smith wasn't a major factor in their sound. You are right though that Frusciante's drug use was a driving force in their sound...

I like this album from start to end. I still listen to it every once in awhile. I will say I enjoy their older stuff more. Just the feel of their older stuff appeal to me more. I have never seen them live,yet. But from what I've heard they give great shows. I respect them for actually caring to try and give the best show they can each an every time.
thanks

Good. The first half was excellent, in my opinion the second half was ****.
Nevertheless, it could be considered classic, who doesnt know this album?
Oh, and Around the World is the funnest song to play on bass, ever and always.

I voted 'Good'. Its a nice fun LP for warm days like today but it doesnt exactly break the atom. It does nothing new but what it does do, it does very well.
