I cant not like them, they're just too damn appealing to hate... but their more recet albums have not been their strongest to date...

Seriously...I tried to hate 'em at first, because the fans I encountered left a bad taste in my mouth....but there's something there for everyone, and I inevitably fell in love. They get better album after album.

i think their albums are progessively better. if you listen to flea talk on their DVD, Funky Monks, he talks about the way they grow as muscians and incorporate their old style with new things they learn. I know everyone has their own opinion but i think their albums have gotten cleaner and crisper sound over the years....ESPECIALLY WITH JOHN ANTHONY MUTHA ****ING FRUSICANTE. he is an amazing musician and has an amazing story behind him....just as the members do. But Frusciante is the man imo.

funky monks is from '92 and flea was likely defending the inclusion of 3 ballads to their last album at the time. which is arguably the last really good album they put out to a big section of their fans (i've run into more than a few who see BSSM as their first bad album too).

if you want to play the 'quotes are timeless' game then there's interview footage of the band in the mid 80s at a european festival where they say their entire goal is to make "the nastiest / dirtiest music ever recorded". not exactly a phrase i'd use to describe much of anything post BSSM.

the albums got a cleaner crisper sound over the years because they got better recording budgets for each subsequent album.

well Mr. Dave...you have a point.

But i'm saying Flea's viewpoint on music, is artists never lose what they learn and are continuing to learn new things every day, much like everyone in life. I agree with that statement and while every subsequent album for every artist is not neccessarily better than before but i think the way they incorporate their different styles of playing of the years into what they have now.


And in the mid-80's the Peppers were most likely on a drug-****tail w/ herion, speed, coke....who knows with them

I like the BSSM album the best. Favourite track, Give It Away.
Knock Me Down from Mother's Milk is cool, too.

Anyone who calls themself a fan of RHCP and calls BSSM a bad album has got to be out of their damn mind.

I'm a fan of RHCP and I thought BSSM was a huge letdown and the beginning of the end of my interest in the Chili Peppers.
