Probably, show the variety that RHCP can play. From the hip-hop style Give It Away to the sweet Scar Tissue, it's got everything. Makes a good compilation of greatest hits with various tracks throught their career. The bass of Flea is amazing in some songs and the drumming is unique. Not the type of hard drumming like typical rock acts but drumming in a certain rhythm. Backed up by a versatile vocalist, makes a good album.

Use of explicit language doesn't make a song catchy. So, sometimes RHCP missout on the lrics. Songs like Suck My Kiss have amazing music but no lyrical background. But, still their words have good substance.

Amazing album! For, a newcomer there is nothing like buying this.
