This album is their first, and one of their finest. This is a very different Red Hot Chili Peppers than their present day music, but every bit as good. Twenty years after its release, it holds up powerfully.
If you have never heard "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes," you are missing one of the finest Hollywood/Southern California anthems ever written. Pop? Rap? Rock? I honestly think there is no way to properly classify this song, it's the perfect tune to announce the rival of the Chili Peppers, and pretty much personifies their offbeat charge into the music world.
You can find the abovementioned song on one of their "Best Of" albums, but the rest of the songs on this CD are too good to pass off. The mightiest tracks are 1 through 6, with "Buckle Down" and the overdrive-paced "Get Up and Jump" stealing the show. The diversity of the songs on these first six tracks is impressive.
The Chili Peppers were such a rush of fresh air when they hit the scene in 1984. I remember a plethora of heavy metal and new wave all over the airwaves & record stores; some good, lots bad. No new group, however, crashed the music scene that year quite like The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pick up this CD and compare it to the playlists of the mid 1980s, and I bet the sheer contrast will show you what a cutting edge band The Red Hot Chili Peppers were when they hit the scene.
Give this album a chance, and I think you will find that the Red Hot Chili Peppers didn't get better with time: they started out great, and since then have tinkered with their musical style, all the while keeping their unmistakable Funky spirits in full force. Yes, The Red Hots still have "Baby Appeal!"

And here it is. I'll agree with the majority: its not their greatest, but better than their new stuff. I certainly agree that the guitarist for this album leaves a lot to be desired. On other almbums, the guitar work of Slovak and Frusciante totally blow me away, but this guy is just BORING. Flea holds the spotlight for this album. His bass lines are as good here as they ever were, maybe even better on some tracks. The lyrics are good, and Kiedis has a unique style of singing that at first is somewhat humorous. However, the drums are those annoying, echoing 80's pop-rock drums that I for one really hate.
Most of the tracks are good, but "Police Helicopter" and "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" are a little too repetitive. Not to mention "You Always Sing the Same".
"Why don't You Love Me" is my favorite. It has a good rhythm, and the bass and guitars are intertwined seamlessly, and with the addition of the brass it makes a great slow song that is quite funky at the same time. Each album has a song that "foreshadows" the Peppers' later work, and this is it.
Overall, a so-so album, enjoyable to hear, not as good as Freaky Styley or Uplift Mofo Party Plan, but it is interesting to hear the Peppers' start.

This record is great considering that it was (orginally) released (almost) 20 years before today when the radio waves are cursed by these ultra corporate/unoriginal rap/metal bands (my local alt/hard rock station actually played songs from this bands original four albums, now all they play is junk like "P.O.D.(posers obviously darnit)".
But this little underatted gem is 95% excelent(I'm not too hot with the simplistic"Police helicopter"). The top tracks in my mind would be "Green Heaven", with the best bass/guitar riff I've ever heard. The fast paced "Out In L.A." The chilling instrumental "Grand pappy du plenty." "Baby appeal" which could have easily made it on Freaky Styley, and "Buckle down", which I like for no reason That I can currently think of.
If that was not enough, if you buy the remaster(which you probably will end up with anyway, since it's easier to find) you get 5 demos added as Bonus tracks. Which range from the "Get up and jump" demo which is so off it's hilarious. To the "Green heaven" demo, which I think is better, with the exception of the scratchy beggining( But it's cool, and somewhat eerie how the bass line slowly fades in at the end of it). It also includes the demo for "What it is" from Out In L.A.(the album, not the song) Which consists of lyrical bits from songs like "Green Heaven", And "The Brothers Cup"(off Freaky Styley). The remaster also has better sound quality (obviously).
So to wrap things up, I would have to say that although it is not thier best, it is by far not thier worst ( it is still better than One Hot Minute, and it is much better than thier last release. So buy it, and enjoy.
HOP OUT!

I don't mind this album, I don't hate it, I mean it's weird to hear how the Chili Peppers started. I wish that they had Jack Irons and Hillel with them during recording, that would've added a hard intensity, but oh well, we still have some solid tracks, all funky, all punk, it's really good pump up music but I wouldn't reccomend it to people who are just getting into the Peppers with "One hot minute" and "By the way" I started with Mother's milk so going back to the original punk rock lineup was easy for me, I was used to it. I give this album 3 stars, but the remaster gets 4 stars due to the bonus tracks featuring the original lineup, you can see how much tighter and more full of energy than the lineup on the actual album, not a bad debut, but the Chili peppers got their "funky" sound with "Freaky Styley" definately. Like I said, think before you buy, overall I'm not too disappointed.
