John Frusciante: Shadows Collide With People

Sound — 10
This is the fourth solo album from the man best known as the lead guitarist in the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The sound of this album is very fresh and creative (like all John Frusciante albums) and whenever you think it's about to get boring, up comes another great song. The creative sound is especially with such tracks as 'Carvel', 'Omission', 'Wednesday's Song' and 'Song To Sing When I'm Lonely'. This is unlike any of his other album's sounds and is the start of something special.

Lyrics — 10
John Frusciante has never been one to stick with regular lyrics, as this album clearly shows, with such lyrics as "driving to eat a carvel cake" and "a blower of hot flesh is a baby/that was the last white stuff I sucked". The lyrics in this album are John's creativity to it's highest standard, and will impress anybody who listens.

Overall Impression — 10
This album is clearly, without a doubt John Frusciante's best solo album, and if he keeps churning out records of this quality, he will soon be one of the biggest names in the music industry. He has gone through hard times and people didn't think he'd make it out. Well thank god he did, and is still producing top quality music/records like this.
