With their second album, Freaky Styley, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were still growing into their oversize funkdafied britches. The polished funk-punk-metal-rap hybrid of later albums was still in its seedling stage here, with the group yet to successfully merge those elements. Still, there's a consistent old-school garage feel. Flea's bass lines, normally in hyperdrive, are clipped and springy, like bare feet hopping on a hot Los Angeles blacktop. Lead singer Anthony Kiedis risks sounding like a parody of the vocal styles he's trying to emulate but commands the songs with every variation of bravado his voice can muster. And finally, the merit of this album could stand solely on the talents of the late guitarist Hillel Slovak, who infuses the tracks with resonating harmonics, psychedelic screeches, and righteous riffs. As disjointed and occasionally amateurish as this album was, it was also groundbreaking and captured the undivided attention of the rock world. --Beth Massa --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This album goes to show just how incredible these guys were so long ago. Hillel's playing is just amazing (guitar solo in Sex Rap is just too much!), supremely funky and often surprisingly understated. It's easy to see why Frusciante idolized him... And Flea/Jack Irons are simply incredible.
Two things really stand out from this album:
1) The funky monks were just as original and incredible 20+ years ago as they are now
2) How different, and yet the same, this era RHCP sounds to Stadium Arcadium etc.
this album just oozes funkadelica. anthony's lyrics are, well, different great, jack's drumming is incredible, fleas bass lines are totally awesome, and hillel's guitar work is breathtaking, its just a shame that the chilis hardly ever play this stuff any more!
i can't possibly state what the stand-out track is, but there isn't a single bad song present!
just buy the bloody thing!
