Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication
Five singles, all of them huge. Plenty more that shoulda-been. John Frusciante returns, replacing Dave Navarro, and the sound shifted. Melodic and contemplative, their irrepressible energy remains (sounds like Chilis!). This one sees them making strides towards finding a bit more balance.
I’m known in these parts as a Chilis fan, and I won’t sell this to some of our Readers, but that’s OK. Chaçun â son goût! More for me!
Californication rules, top to bottom.
