The Red Hot Chili Peppers' music inspired is what inspired me to play guitar and bass. They put 28 tracks on their new album, Stadium Arcadium, and every single one differs. They did slow songs, faster songs, and some funk songs. Even if it was just the whole set up of the song. The soloing John did was incredible. This is the best CD out, and if you don't have it, I suggest you buy it.

Anthony's lyrics are so deeply thought out. Every time I hear them I start to think about what each and every little phrase means. They're just so intelligently put together. And the style of song is completely right with the mood of the lyrics. Anthony wasn't good at singing when he first started making CDs. Like at Wood Stock 96, that was before he took lessons. Then after they started Californication he started improving in every song. And in Stadium Arcadium, his voice was really good. In every song he sounded professional. At first he sounded hella bad, in their first couple of CDs.
Overall Impression — 10
I don't think that there is a single album that compares to this one. It's not going to be easy for a band to top it. Especially with all these new bands. They all suck, for example Fall Out Boy and Hawthorne Heights. Those are probably the worst bands I have ever heard. My favorite on the album is Charlie, but I think the best one is Wet Sand. It seems like they put all their hearts into that one. What I love about it is how they don't really care about what people want to hear, they care about their music. And the one thing I hate is Hump De Bump. Well I wouldn't go as far to say I hate it, it just annoys me. I would definitly buy another one. I wouldn't hesitate to do it either.
