In the band's second released album which is pre-Blood Sugar Sex Magik, their major commercial break through, the Chili Pepper's display numerous unique characteristics in their music that their latter releases lack. Even though this is not necasserily a negetivity, these difference allow the artists to convey an early, raw collaboratioin of funk, rap, punk, and rock that evntually would lead to the inspirtiion of their more modern works and revolutionize a sound that as unheard of on it's release, 1987. Like all of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's album's their is a total oiginal sound that is heard, however, in this example it seem's to be displayed in a untammed intensity. This level of sond is achieved by the efforts of Hillel Slovak's perfectly placed and perfectly constrcted guitar riffs, accompanied by, arguably the best modern day bassist, Flea and his agressive slaps and pops that demonstrate a new level of funk which ar both backed by incredible, up-tempo drum beats. All are, of course, brought together by the creative, and impacting lyrics of Anthony Keidis. This is an excellent dispay of many musical genres ad all of their componants and is highly recommended as a compilation of early Red Hot Chili Pepper's music that is not found in an of their more recent works, that prove to still be al time favorites.
