Product Description


With valuable assistance from producer Rick Rubin, the Peppers find just the right blend of punk, funk, and hip-hop. Even with a running time of 74 minutes, this 1991 breakthrough has continuity and cohesion both within and across the 17 cuts. Riding Flea's surging bass, Anthony Kiedis delivers his explicit lyrics with a rapper's flair, extolling the virtues (and outlining the dangers) of sex and drugs. Plaintive ballads such as "Breaking the Girl", "I Could Have Lied", and the hit "Under the Bridge" give the album depth and provide contrast to the raw energy of "Mellowship Slinky in B Major", "Funky Monks", and "Give It Away". Rubin masterfully fuses John Frusciante's raunchy guitar with the irresistible grooves. --Marc Greilsamer

5.0 out of 5 stars The Epitomy of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's Career July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is definately one of the best records of all time. Flea's one of the most innovative and funky bassists of the last 10 years, and John Frusciante's solos are sure to blow your mind. Flea and CHad Smith make up what is possibly the best rythym section ever. And Anthony Kiedis's lyrics are random yet beautiful and humorous. But despite all the bands individual talent (which is elite), what shines here is the band's incredible chemistry. The whole album is recorded live, with hardly any dubs. They blend together so amazingly into 17 rocking songs. THere's raw funky songs like Apache Rose Peacock, Sir Psycho Sexy, If you Have to Ask, Mellowship Slinky in B Major and The RIghteous and the Wicked. All driven by infectious funky grooves, supplied by FLea's bass. To hard agressive rocking songs like Power of Equality, The Greeting Song, and Funky Monks. Many people think of Under the Bridge when they hear Blood Sugar Sex Magik, but I Could Have Lied may well be one of the saddest songs you'll hear. Driven by intense passion and somewhat dark lyrics, the guitar is just beautiful. So if you haven't a clue what Red Hot Chili Pepper's albums to get, screw By the Way or Californication, go for the classic Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chili Peppers' Best Work June 30 2004
By nate
Format:Audio CD
I am a Chili Peppers fan and I'd have to say this album exemplifies their best work. It is true that many of the songs might sound similar but only similar in style; not copying the same rythmic ideas over and over. While Mother's Milk was a good album as well, I think the band's sound matured. On Mother's Milk you find songs that are a bit more complicated, with faster and more intense solos from Frusciante and Flea and John using more distortion. On this album however, Frusciante uses distortion sparingly and keeps it on clean tone most of the time.
This allows for more development of the songs. You can hear that Frusciante and Flea wrote their parts together with the bass and guitar parts interwined to almost form one voice. Listening to tracks like the "Give it Away" you hear how during the verse, the bass starts a measure with a slide from A to G on beats 1 and 2 and then Frusciante's funky guitar part completing the measure on beats 3 and 4 with a chromatic descent E-D#-D. The album has a considerable variety with great acoustic tracks like "Breaking the Girl" and "I Could Have Lied". For the reviewer who said RHCP was ripping another one of their songs , "Soul to Squeeze" (yes a very good song) , Blood Sugar,Sex,Magik was released in 91 and Soul to Squeeze not till 93. The only thing I don't care for are some of Anthony's blatantly sexual lyrics on tracks like Sir Psycho Sexy, but the music is still superb. Flea shows why he is considered such a good bass player not by showing off with fast solo stuff but by writing bass parts that fit perfectly with the guitar parts. It is clear that on this album the band stressed more on getting a complete band sound more so than just writing the most complicated/show off stuff they could pull off.

3.0 out of 5 stars not my favorite RHCP album June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
this album is a rare instence where the lyrics are better then the music. actually no, not better, just more varied. their all very proficiant on their instruments, the lyrics are great and this album is alot of fun to listen to once in a while but on the whole i personaly, against alot of the poupulation i think, find the album kind of boring. there is not so much musical variety on it. every bass line is different, every guitar solo is different but when the put it all together it all sounds more similar then not . the tunes are too similar, the underlying tune that anthony is singing in alot of the songs sounds very similar to the tunes he sings in many of the other songs. on the other hand this album is what set them off into their 90s hits, the album that sent them in that direction. it does not sound like every other album they ever made which i think is one of the greatest thing about them, if one albums not so good, it doesnt mean the next one will be not so good. actually, my favorite part of the album was the booklet that came with it and Gus Van Sants photography work. the tatoos were increadible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Foot Was In... June 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
But, this made them welcome at home.
RHCP is one of those bands where you come in with expectations and you walk out with something you never once believed. While the band has mellowed down a bit, not commercially but musically, we look back at the changes the band has went through. If you popped in Freaky Styley, or even their self titled debut, you would not recognize the band, especially after listening to Blood Sugar Sex Magik...the band's 'Revolver.'
Blood Sugar Sex Magik, BSSM, is an album filled with morality, strength, weakness, and pain. While the previous albums dealt with insane stories of Catholic School Girls and Coyotes, we now begin to explore the band they are and are today. But, on the flipside, we are reminded of who they are and what they did. Nobody has ever done anything that sounds like RHCP.
With the opening song 'Power of Equality', one of the best off the album, we kick into the new sound of the Chili Peppers. This is fast funk with that alternative drive...who ever heard this before? The song is catchy, pounding, and jamming all at the same time. Flea does some of the most impressive bass lines ever, as well. The rest of the songs follow precisely, the arrangement is flawless here.
Both 'Funky Monks' and 'Suck My Kiss' are fan favorites and always will be. They're anthems in a way to anyone who heard it first come on the radio. To me, 'Suck My Kiss' is just as prolific as 'Satisfaction.' Yeah, I'm out on a limb, a strong one. 'Give it Away', my least favorite song on the album, is among a favorite to everyone. To say this song is my least favorite just shows how great this album is, how there really isn't anything drawn out or out of place.
The real piece of work in the album is, of course, 'Under the Bridge.' This may be so cliche, but it's true.
