C'est en 1984 que les Red Hot Chili Peppers publient ce premier manifeste de fusion, un genre qui n'a pas cessé de prospérer depuis. Red Hot Chili Peppers est un album détonant sur lequel ces Californiens jouent avec maestria aux apprentis sorciers en mélangeant metal, rap, funk et rock. Aussi délirants à la ville qu'à la scène, ces clowns bondissants s'appuient sur une rythmique sans faille dont Flea, l'un des meilleurs bassistes de sa génération, est le pilier infatigable. La marque de fabrique des Red Hot, c'est aussi une guitare distordue et virevoltante ainsi que la voix narquoise et le débit intarissable du chanteur Anthony Kiedis. Un coup d'essai qui s'apparente à un coup de maître. --Cyril Deluermoz --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!"
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.
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.
The album is not as good as the rest but it is a good start for the band. I think the album is good, though it didn't do very well when it was released because nobody had heard of it and it wasn't the kind of music people were used to. The reason I like it is because it is very funky, it has lots of great bass riffs, drum beats and the word are not to bad. The only thing I don't like about it is the guitar, its not very interesting and theirs not much of it. The bass seems to be the lead guitar. The guitarist was a replacement because the original moved to another band.
The songs in the album are good some are a bit bad, but some are only there to make more song numbers at the back of the album.
My favourite songs and the songs that are good are
TRUE MEN DON'T KILL COYOTES
This is the first song on the album and not a bad song. It is very funky with some catchy riffs. Though it is hard to make out what the singer is saying.
Another good song and a very funky song. This song was written because the chili peppers used to play in front babies. I know its a bit weird but apparently they were a good audience.
This has to be my favourite song on the album because it has a catchy chorus and a good guitar riff.
GET UP AND JUMP
This is probly my second favourite. Again a very funky tune with a catchy chorus.
This was one of the very first songs written by the chili peppers.Read more ›

Not bad considering it is their first! They came along with many, many other CDs to follow. "Flea" is great! Get this, or any of their CDs! You will enjoy them! Van Horn!Published on Dec 13 2009 by Luap Van Horn
