The Chilis do their funky thing… but haters, don’t dismiss yet – hear all of the intricate, perfect instrumental additions in these songs… the songwriting’s stellar. Not a dud track anywhere (there were 5 singles here!). Also, power in sadness: it’s Frusciante’s last with them. But what an exit… Pure, ambitious, masterful, delicately beautiful glory abounds.
Did you know this was to be a trilogy of albums, but got condensed to a double? True story. LOVE IT.
