i was hoping for another song with lyrics like gong li as the b'side but i got another instrumental! teatro jam is good but i was hoping for anthony to jump in! if you're a dihard peppers fan(like me)you'll get it for the b'sides but other than that this cd lacks the punch some of their others had! check out my friends cd single for two excellant b'sides! the parallel universe demo is cool(the 1st demo on a b'side and the 1st demo put out since out in l.a.! )but anthony sounds horrible on it! check out the 2nd single for around the world for yertle trilogy(yertle the turtle and freaky styley jam)! the higlight of these two!

Anthony, John, Flea, and Chad are back with their second single of their 1999 hit cd, Californication. "Around the World" is a great song that has many different themes and feelings in it. Everyone should buy this single and the cd! CHILI PEPPERS ROCK!

Skipable. July 29 2006
By Collin L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Around the World is one of my personal favorite Chili Pepper song, released as the second single to the smash hit Californication and in two parts--this being part one.

It combines their rap and funk roots in the verse with a melodic and powerful chorus. The beginning is rough, and abrasive, pairing Flea's demanding slap-bass style of playing with John's funky and masterful guitar manipulation that generates an amazing and mind blowing intro lasting 30 seconds.

It is the two b-sides that I'm not so fond of. "Parallel Universe" hasn't changed as much as you'd like it to. Really, if anything, it comes off less perfect then the actual album version.

"Teatro Jam" is a nice song that jams like crazy. Chad and Flea provide delectable rhythm, and John plays the guitar proficiently thought the entire thing. It's not bad. This single is purely for collectors, as the b-sides aren't the most valuable ones the Chili's have released. The title track is, hands down, the best off this single.

Demo shows the creative process unfolding July 7 2003

Peppers b-sides are always interesting, they're obviously thinking about the insatiable fan when they put them out. This one has a demo of "Parallel Universe". You can hear how the arrangement is still coming together and the song is actually longer. John's solo on this version is better (to me) than the album version and Chad's drumline switches to hi hats instead of ride on the solo which is another difference from the album which I thought was cool and better. The sound is a bit lofi but it's a demo. "Teatro Jam" is a good instrumental loaded with all kinds of tension but very loose.

Minimal value, for collector's only. Sept. 28 2005
By Michael Stack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The "Around the World" single appeared in two parts, each backed with a pair of b-sides. This is part 1.

The title track is a funky, driven piece, opening with a raging distorted bass run before blasting into an oddball, scratchy, funky verse. It's a decent tune, although it's on "Californication", so it's unlikely anyone would buy it for this.

The b-sides on part 1 are from the Teatro sessions, demos worked up before the album-- "Parallel Universe" hadn't changed much-- the bass and guitar are separated (you can really hear the metallic edge in Flea's bassplaying) a bit more, but other than that, it's about the same thing. The "Teatro Jam" piece features a somewhat irritating guitar riff and some superb playing from Chad Smith and Flea, but truthfully, it's not all that listenable.

In the end, this one is probably best for collector's only.
