is starting to grow on me. I'm a huge Frusciante fan and was a little skeptical with him being out of the band but they have done pretty good. It's in the same style as the last three. Not a lot of funk, but still pretty good.

Flea and Chad Smith are definitely front and center on this album. Rick Rubin really buried the new guy's guitar work in the mix.
But this is a strong batch of songs, that's really starting to grow on me as well. I miss the incredible guitar freak outs on Stadium, and well, just everything Frusciante brought to the table, but this is a very good album.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
The rock station here in Detroit has been playing songs off the new CD in the time slot they normally dedicate to new releases. Very "RHCP", which is hardly a bad thing, definitely a solid CD. It just doesn't feel like they've evolved at all.
