1. By The Way
One of those songs that sounds anonymous the first 2 or 3 times, then suddenly becomes brilliant. Some might say a typical Chilis song, but the harmonised verse and shotgun delivery of the lightning rap interludes seperate this from the rap/rock guff.
A definite *****
2. Universally Speaking
A great bouncing rhythm right through this track, you cannot help but nod ya head (no black suits comin'). Fairly generic verses, but Kiedis comes into his own on the chorus.
3. This Is The Place
A more slower tempo for this one, it is almost like a follow-up to Under the Bridge. Another strong chorus makes this a distinctive track, together with Flea's consistently brilliant bass.
Not a favourite among the more rap/funk centralised Chilis fans, this is one of the highlights of the album. Showing how love has mellowed his outlooked, Anthony Kiedis' vocals are beutifully matched by the melodic, swooping guitar play by John Frusciante
5. Don't Forget Me
One of the more anonymous tracks on the album, that is not to detract from the track, more a reflection in the overall album.
6. The Zephyr Song
The second single to be lifted, a more upbeat song, with an almost rap-like sung verse, and another melodic chorus. The middle eight makes the song stand out however. Bear in mind, the lyrics make no sense however. Brilliant gibberish

Personal favourite: Can't Stop
Dosed- A slower more heartfelt song
Can't Stop- One of their fast paced rap/rock sounds
I Could Die for You- Very melancholy with good voice overs
