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

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
