Product Description


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.

If you were raised on Under the Bridge or Californication era Chili Peppers, this album may be quite the (amazing, hopefully) surprise. They manage to sound extremely tight and loose at the same time, possibly a result of the godfather of funk's producing the album.

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.

I had heard this album before I bought it so I'm not completely "unbiased," but it's probably my second-favourite 80s album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, after Mother's Milk. This is definitely the band at their funkiest, and musically bears little resemblance to their more recent albums. I love how energetic and wacky Freaky Styley is, and here Anthony Kiedis' tongue-twister lyrics are at their peak, jamming as many words in as he possibly can (so most of the songs are pretty nonsensical). This album contains some gems, such as "Blackeyed Blonde," "The Brothers Cup," and "Yertle the Turtle," to name my favourites! I also love the bonus track "Millionaires Against Hunger." Freaky Styley isn't perfect, but it's definitely a lot of fun. Liner notes contain reminiscences by Flea and some quirky paintings/photos of the band. :)

Freaky Styley is without question not only the funkiest Red Hot Chili Peppers album, but also one of the best funk albums since the heyday of Parliament/Funkadelic. After getting mixed results with their self titled debut, the Chili Peppers stepped up their game musically thanks to the return of original member Hillel Slovak and the strong production by the godfather of funk, George Clinton. Every song is worth listening to, especially Jungle Man, The Brothers Cup, If You Want Me To Stay, and Catholic School Girls Rule. Freaky Styley doesn`t have the strong songs and production of the later albums, but it`s definitely a good old school album.

this is THe definitive rhcp album. forget the incredibly poor, [crummy], by the way, this is the greatest album of their career!
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!
