The Red Hot Chili Peppers today are a group of 4 sometimes crazy, sometimes sensible men in their 30's and 40's. This is the Red Hot Chili Peppers of yesterday! Funk-rock/guitar-rap are the genres of this album. It was made in 1987 and was the only album to include all of the original 4 members. Out of the less famous first 4 albums, as the 3rd this one is definetly the highlight!
Lyrics — 6
Anthony throws some grat lyrics out here but also uses some terrible ones too. The song Love Trilogy shows this in it's last 2 lines. Anthony has to be pretty skillfull to handle some of the fast rap-style lyrics on here although some of them could have been written by the yet-to-be-born Clara Balzary (Flea's daughter).
Overall Impression — 10
This is my personal favourite album by my favourite band. So yes, nothing else compares to me. The most impressive songs are probably Organic Anti-Beat Box Band and Fight Like A Brave. I love the riffs and funky bass. The solos are cool. I'm not really a keen rap fan. Of course I would buy it again if it went missing. I need it to keep my RHCP back catalogue complete. Plus it's their best album!
