Sound — 7
I really like most of the songs on this album. Cabron, Tear, and Warm tape aren't that good though. I always skip them. They sound like a whole differnt type of music, which isn't good. However, the rest of the songs, such as This Is The Place and Can't Stop boost the score back up. Flea is awesome! I wish my bass player could play like that.
Lyrics — 8
I really like the way Anthony sings. It sounds so cool. However, sometimes he is a little hard to understand. And the lyrics, though sometimes sound confusing, have messages in them. I've heard that Scar Tissue (Californication), is about one of the members getting over a drug addiction (I could be wrong).
Overall Impression — 8
I give this band a 8 out of 10. So far, I haven't met anyone who hasn't heard of them, even if they don't like them. They are really popular, and boosted their popularity with their release of their new album (stadium arcadium). The only major thing I hate is that their songs are hard to play on a guitar. If I lost it I would definately buy it again.
