Product Description


Following a string of unsatisfactory replacements (including former Jane's Addiction alum Dave Navarro), Californication--the band's seventh album--saw them reunited with both errant guitarist John Frusciante (hauled out of a long and debilitating heroin addiction) and producer Rick Rubin, whose mixture of commerical nous and sonic smarts helped make 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik their breakthrough set. It's a welcome reunion: Frusciante's playing, in particular--tight, yet lyrical--fits these songs like a second skin, lending them a sensual sort of ease that is perfectly in keeping with the reckless hedonism of their lyrics. The songs themselves are much the same mixture of adrenalised swagger and high-tensile funk as ever. And typically, there are two or three fillers here ("Emit Remmus", "Purple Stain") which probably should have been left on the shelf. Ultimately, though, it's their ballads ("Road Trippin'", the moody, desolate "Scar Tissue") which really demonstrate their strengths, both as songwriters and arrangers--and reveal, albeit briefly, the hearts this crew normally take such pains to conceal. --Andrew McGuire

4.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl sounds better than CD/MP3 Dec 9 2012
By Geee!
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
For those of you who think the CD sounds fine, you have questionable hearing! The CD version is possibly the worst atrocity of the digital age. This new vinyl illustrates that it didn't have to be that way. I can actually turn up the volume on the vinyl! It's still not great like the 4 LP version of Stadium Arcadium, but it's highly listenable compared to the crap on digital. Make certain to get the version with the blue sticker on the front proclaiming limited edition 180 gram vinyl 2 disc set. It is available via amazon.ca, but I don't know which copy Amazon.com ships

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL RED HOT! March 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers haven't released that many albums considering how long they have been together, but you know when they do release an album, it's going to be something special.
Californication is the result of a good few year's work, writing, recording and producing. The Chilli Pepper's production mastermind, Rick Rubin, produced this little gem.
Actually it's not a little gem, its a big gleaming thing, crying out the words "Im a big gleaming thing!" The Chilli Peppers knew very well what type of album they were making here. It's grand, it can be complex and intricate, and it can be all out funk rock.
I'd say the guitar sequences and riffs are one of the most major assets of this album, doing a lot of holding together. The guitar glue can be heard clearly on tracks like 'Scar Tissue', 'Californication' and 'Road Trippin'. In the old days, The Chilli Peppers were influenced heavily by disco, funk and soul acts like George Clinton and the Parliament. Nowadays in their music you can still hear Flea's funked-up bassline and the out of the ordinary rhythms, but its dressed with newer influences, i would say indirectly the Smashing Pumpkins or Nirvana being examples. The Peppers have certainly moved with the times, but remained with their very unique sound.
Anthony Keidis' voice has definetley improved over the years. The songs on Californication allow him to do things that he has previously not done very much (ie Actually sing instead of just rapping). There are a lot of very mellow songs onthis album, like 'Porcelain' and 'Road Trippin'. I like the Chilli Peppers when they are mellow. It gives a good break from the hard stuff, and also Keidis' voice suits them very well.
The hard stuff is also very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peppers are back better than ever! June 8 1999
Format:Audio CD
I went and bought this CD this morning and skipped school to go listen to it. It's great! You've probably already heard "Scar Tissue". It's a great song. Other good songs include "Otherworld", "Around The World", and "Easily". Speaking of which, this is easily their best album. Go buy it now!

This album is the most beautiful, creamy, funkmebacktonineteennintytwo experience, I've had in along looong time . My first real enlightenment through funk music was in the Blood Sugar era, and ever since Ive been searching for an adequete comparison. One hot minute was a good 'Chad' album and Flea had some nice (non-slap) basslines, but Anthony singing sounds a bit commercial without the 'real' funky four lineup. Jimmy Hendrix died and was reincarnated as a catapillar, which metamorphisised into an amazing funky butterfly called John Frusciante. Now that John has been reunited, the seeds of funk planted in 1992 will grow again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Depressing
I know it isn't very trendy to say so, but I consider the Chilis one of the more important 80s and early 90s bands--Blood Sugar Sex Magic was 60+ minutes of sustained brilliance. Read more

This cd is terrible. The musicianship is no better than average. Vocals and lyrics are lame,meaningless, and bizarre. The music makes me want to hurl. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel Just As Good?
'One Hot Minute' is the proposed and known follow-up to 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik', but in a way, it really isn't. John F. had a leave of absence and Navarro came in. Read more
