The Chili's somehow had to fill the huge void left by Frusciante, and had a number of different fill-in guitarists to complete the tour. They eventually settled with Dave Navarro, formerly of Janes Addiction fame, and in 1995, they set about working on the follow up to what was their best album to date.
Obviously upon its release, expectations were high. There was obviously going to be a slightly different change in sound, as Frusciante had such a unique style. But the resulting album 'One Hot Minute' was released, and was not well received. The sound of the band had changed quite considerably, and in many peoples eyes, not for the better. However, in my own personal view, this album shows a different side of the Chili's, but not a worse side. I really like the album, its very varied from start to finish. Dark in some places, jovial in others. Here is a summary of my opinions of the tracks.
'Warped' - A noisy start to the album, at first it seems a bit too disjointed, but it is definitely a grower, and one of the highlights
'Aeroplane' - A true Chili's classic. Funky as hell, and a great colourful video.
'Deep kick' - Kiedis spends a couple of minutes waffling on about nonsense, before breaking into a bouncy/heavy/funky track
'My Friends' - Ballad number 1 on the album, and almost sounds a little like the classic under the bridge. Nice track.
'Coffee shop' - A great funk rock fest, with bizarre lyrics, and a brilliant slap bass line.
