Product Description

Product Description

Certified Multi-Platinum (7 times) by the RIAA. (4/01)

Amazon.ca

With valuable assistance from producer Rick Rubin, the Peppers find just the right blend of punk, funk, and hip-hop. Even with a running time of 74 minutes, this 1991 breakthrough has continuity and cohesion both within and across the 17 cuts. Riding Flea's surging bass, Anthony Kiedis delivers his explicit lyrics with a rapper's flair, extolling the virtues (and outlining the dangers) of sex and drugs. Plaintive ballads such as "Breaking the Girl", "I Could Have Lied", and the hit "Under the Bridge" give the album depth and provide contrast to the raw energy of "Mellowship Slinky in B Major", "Funky Monks", and "Give It Away". Rubin masterfully fuses John Frusciante's raunchy guitar with the irresistible grooves. --Marc Greilsamer

This is definately one of the best records of all time. Flea's one of the most innovative and funky bassists of the last 10 years, and John Frusciante's solos are sure to blow your mind. Flea and CHad Smith make up what is possibly the best rythym section ever. And Anthony Kiedis's lyrics are random yet beautiful and humorous. But despite all the bands individual talent (which is elite), what shines here is the band's incredible chemistry. The whole album is recorded live, with hardly any dubs. They blend together so amazingly into 17 rocking songs. THere's raw funky songs like Apache Rose Peacock, Sir Psycho Sexy, If you Have to Ask, Mellowship Slinky in B Major and The RIghteous and the Wicked. All driven by infectious funky grooves, supplied by FLea's bass. To hard agressive rocking songs like Power of Equality, The Greeting Song, and Funky Monks. Many people think of Under the Bridge when they hear Blood Sugar Sex Magik, but I Could Have Lied may well be one of the saddest songs you'll hear. Driven by intense passion and somewhat dark lyrics, the guitar is just beautiful. So if you haven't a clue what Red Hot Chili Pepper's albums to get, screw By the Way or Californication, go for the classic Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

One of my favorite albums. Amazing sound quality you can really hear the good production of Rick Rubin in the record, as well the musical genius that is John Frusciante. The reason i gave it 4 stars is that this version does not contain the booklet with all the pictures you can find in a different LP version.

I am a Chili Peppers fan and I'd have to say this album exemplifies their best work. It is true that many of the songs might sound similar but only similar in style; not copying the same rythmic ideas over and over. While Mother's Milk was a good album as well, I think the band's sound matured. On Mother's Milk you find songs that are a bit more complicated, with faster and more intense solos from Frusciante and Flea and John using more distortion. On this album however, Frusciante uses distortion sparingly and keeps it on clean tone most of the time.
This allows for more development of the songs. You can hear that Frusciante and Flea wrote their parts together with the bass and guitar parts interwined to almost form one voice. Listening to tracks like the "Give it Away" you hear how during the verse, the bass starts a measure with a slide from A to G on beats 1 and 2 and then Frusciante's funky guitar part completing the measure on beats 3 and 4 with a chromatic descent E-D#-D. The album has a considerable variety with great acoustic tracks like "Breaking the Girl" and "I Could Have Lied". For the reviewer who said RHCP was ripping another one of their songs , "Soul to Squeeze" (yes a very good song) , Blood Sugar,Sex,Magik was released in 91 and Soul to Squeeze not till 93. The only thing I don't care for are some of Anthony's blatantly sexual lyrics on tracks like Sir Psycho Sexy, but the music is still superb. Flea shows why he is considered such a good bass player not by showing off with fast solo stuff but by writing bass parts that fit perfectly with the guitar parts. It is clear that on this album the band stressed more on getting a complete band sound more so than just writing the most complicated/show off stuff they could pull off.

this album is a rare instence where the lyrics are better then the music. actually no, not better, just more varied. their all very proficiant on their instruments, the lyrics are great and this album is alot of fun to listen to once in a while but on the whole i personaly, against alot of the poupulation i think, find the album kind of boring. there is not so much musical variety on it. every bass line is different, every guitar solo is different but when the put it all together it all sounds more similar then not . the tunes are too similar, the underlying tune that anthony is singing in alot of the songs sounds very similar to the tunes he sings in many of the other songs. on the other hand this album is what set them off into their 90s hits, the album that sent them in that direction. it does not sound like every other album they ever made which i think is one of the greatest thing about them, if one albums not so good, it doesnt mean the next one will be not so good. actually, my favorite part of the album was the booklet that came with it and Gus Van Sants photography work. the tatoos were increadible.

In 1991, the Chili Peppers lived together over at Rick Rubin's mansion and recorded what would be their most talked about record. "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" is a kick [on the back] and a great way to spend this coming summer. Actually, I'd tie this with their latest "By The Way" as my favorite record. (Who says you can't love old AND new Chili Peppers?). When I hear this record, I hear 4 best friends, creating music because they love it and they love eachother.
"The Power of Equality" kicks open the album and it's all uphill from there. With this opening song the Chili Peppers show they have a social conscience and, with the LA riots happening around that same time, it makes this song even more powerful. This song, and most of the rest of the record, is funky and rocking at the same time. Flea and John Frusciante just gel together and it's great to hear. "If You Have To Ask", "Mellowship Slinky in B Major", "The Righteous And The Wicked", and "Apache Rose Peacock" follow that same fusion of funk, rock, and Anthony Kiedis' well-phrased lyrics. Some of the lyrics, especially those on "Sir Psycho Sexy", are explicit and there's a good reason for the Parental Advisory sticker...just letting you know, if you weren't already aware.
Moving on, you can't possibly forget the classic singles "Give It Away", the waltz "Breaking the Girl", the funk stomp "Suck My Kiss", and of course "Under The Bridge". No wonder this record is regarded as such a masterpiece.
I love this music and I love the guys in this band. There is something very moving about it all. Four best friends just loving life and creating music together is the coolest thing to see and to this day they're still creating music, which I feel, is still very much relevant and moving lyrically and musically.
