Sound — 10
Stadium Arcadium includes the same sound that we continue to know from RHCP, and that is a good thing. Slow songs, fast songs, crazy guitar solos, strange vocals, it's all here, and it's all good. None of the songs feel like they where rushed, either, they each feel like they got the time they needed in the studio to keep them as good sa the others, so don't worry about that.
Lyrics — 10
There are 28 songs on this album, and each song feels completely different then the other. The lyrics are good, some are better than the others, and some songs are complete changes from some of their past albums. Some of the songs are a little different then past albums, but a step in a good direction, to fully understand you must listen to the album.
Overall Impression — 10
Stadium Arcadium is a huge triumph for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not only do we get another excellent album, but we get 2 CD's included, a grand total of 28 songs, each one completely different, and each one a success, none of them feel like to much, or too little. People sometimes complain about bands taking to long to release a new CD, but when you get amazing albums like this, why would we complain?
