Sound — 10
I was first prompted to buy ths album because Red Hot Chilli Peppers was famous, and Dani California was a good song, but when I bought Stadium Arcadium, I was shocked like hell, because it's so good, Red Hot Chilli Peppers has got the most skillful guitar and drums anywhere on the planet, and each song is unique, my favourites are Dani California, Desecreation Smile, Readymade and Hump De Bump. Wonderful stuff, the guitar riffs and drum patterns are all special in their own way, and to add to the array of music available, they also write good rap parts, even though I don't listen to rap. Altogether this is certainly recommended.
Lyrics — 9
Lyrics are good, poetic at times, punchy and exciting, they cover a lot of topics, and help make the song into a better thing, you may not agree at first, but give it a listen, you won't regret it, it's just pure genius. The Red Hot Chilli peppers can write good lyrics for virtually anything - rock or rap.
Overall Impression — 10
Hard to say, because they're too good to compare with anything else, though I've listened to it less recently, it's still top stuff that anybody who listens to music must buy, because unlike other bands, the red hot chilli peppers write music from different genres and mixes them together effeectively, I've really really enjoyed this album, and if it was to be stolen, I'd rush to my nearest CD shop and get a new copy, please, get it now.
