This CD, the latest release from R.H.C.P., is what you would expect. Anthony has the same additude and vocals, Jon's playing is always getting better, Flea is crazy, and Chad keeps it real byy using beats theat do the song justice, not kill it in a double bass frenzy. My favorite tracks are "Storm in a Teacup", "Snow", and "Dani California". The later two both have cool build-ups with either a cool solo thing or harmony at the end. The sound is what you expect from The Chili Peppers.

Anthony's lyrics are, well, to me, surprisingly average. A lot reference to alcohol, drugs and sex, but that's rock 'n' roll, for you. As I said before, it's like when I procrastinate till I have two days to do a project and ten it comes out like crap. Still decent, though.
Overall Impression — 6
This CD, was fairly average compared to mainstream rock. I was surprised, but it was true. This CD has Jon is at one of his peak playing times. This CD is good for anyone. Good for a mainstream rock fan. If I lost this, honestly, I wouldn't buy it again. I would just by "Dani California", and "Snow". Don't let those tracks deceive you into thinking it's amazing.
