Red Hot Chili Peppers: By The Way
0

Sound — 9
This is a good album which features a variety of different types of Red Hot Chili Peppers music scaling from Throw Away Your Television to Can't Stop. There is no story to this album as far as I can tell but I still think it is RHCP's best album yet. As I said this album has a range of different styles going from softer tracks to hard rock

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are okay and I think the singer has excellent skill. He can sing softly, deeply, fastly or slowly and it is always fits in with the unbelievable riffs or licks that Red Hot Chili Peppers musicians make.

Overall Impression — 9
I dont think this album really compares to any other because RHCP have such a unique sound and the singer has a very distinctive voice. My favouritwe songs on the album are Cant Stop and By The Way. I love these 2 songs so much I would buy the album just for that. I hate that there are 2 or 3 songs that are god awful, you make your own descision!

    This album will be second best after the release of the new album stadium arcadium because even though this album kicks ase sadium will get the popular vote due to the new song dani californa.
