My favorite tune: Look Around

Anthony Kiedis can sport a moustache and change his hair (again) but Chili Peppers stay the same.
RHCP is already matured musically. A little bit too matured maybe: The band is already in its ‘static’ state. Not in any negative sense, they still make good songs, but the pattern is laid. They paved it in, of course, on Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and established this ‘funky pop-rock’ posture since One Hot Minute, back in 1995, four-albums-long ago. From then onward, all is done. It looks like there won’t be anymore adventurous splurge in years to come. You can sense this now. Listening to these new materials, you’ll probably think: maybe this is why Frusciante left.

My Rating: 6/10
