This is the soundtrack to going to a house party hosted by a friend of a friend of a friend who just wants to put on some background music that "everyone likes". It has 2 billion plays on Spotify overall, and you know at least half of those plays happened in a VW Golf with a road bike on the roof racks, while the driver sat there in lycra drinking a long black. 2/5 - I'd give it 1 just for being so fucking safe, but truth is it IS kinda catchy. I hate myself for saying that.

Playful and rhythmic, this bass guitar heavy album feels like the backdrop for a summer day playing beach volleyball on the Pacific or a sweaty dance floor at a rock club. With some of the most catchy tunes every to hit the radio, the diversity of vocal tones and lyrical themes (of resistance and freedom) complete the prescription of joy and release that cause so many embrace the entire album.

Play that funky music, white boys? RHCP is an American heritage band at this point, a staple. C'mon, you've got a bassist named Flea, a drummer that looks like Will Ferrell, what more do you want? I've encountered people in life who say the only music they like is RHCP, which is mystifying. But these guys are pretty great. Plenty of hits on here, and it's produced by the legend Rick Rubin! Part of the bassline on "Around the World" sounds indebted to Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon," I liked that. I liked a lot of this album, it's great. Maybe not super red hot, but there's plenty of chili peppers to go around. Favorite songs: Around the World, Scar Tissue, Road Trippin', Otherside. Album art: I'd say this is iconic. I've seen it a million times over, but today for the first time I'm noticing the swap of the water and the sky, that's crazy. I guess I always thought the background was the ocean. Very cool picture, Pepps. 4/5

First side is full of good singles. Second side is meh. The highlight is the musical relationship between Frusciante, Flea, and Chad. I just don't vibe with Anthony Keidis' vocal style personally.

I started at a 3 but it continued slipping down to a 2. I found myself waiting for it to be over numerous times. I'm not a fan of his vocal style; apparently I can deal with it when hearing a track come on randomly, but over and over on an album... yea no. Scar Tissue is pretty good though.

With the instrumentalists' interplay at an all-time telepathic high and Kiedis peaking as a vocalist, Californication is a bona fide Chili Peppers classic.

It's been a hot minute since I last listened to this record and... Well, I don't know that it's aged all that well, to be honest. I really liked Californication when it came out so I was surprised to find that I didn't feel the same this time. Turns out, while the music is fun, most of these lyrics are really dumb. Like... Really stupid. On top of that, aside from the hits that everyone knows, the majority of the tracks are really dated sounding. I expected to give this a five-star review. Sadly, it only gets a 3. The years take their toll on everything.

Haven't listened to this album in years. First thing I noticed is it's a causality of the Loudness Wars. The fidelity was just awful. First half of the album is good, but then everything between Californication and Road Trippin is garbage. If you picked just the highlights of the album it'd be a 4 star album, if you fixed the audio, it'd be 5. As it stands, it's a 2.5.

No thanks. Typical RHCP and not even one of their "good" albums. Anything that isn't a single is typically bad and the singles only pass because they're generally catchy and "hey it's a chili peppers single so we have to play it on the radio." But the more you listen the worse it gets. Their generation's maroon 5.

Estaba pensando en que es muy difícil escoger una canción preferida que tenga de los RHCP. No puedo llamarme fan de ellos ya que no he escuchado todos sus discos y de hecho los conocí más allá de "Californication" por su Greatest Hits. En fin, ahora que escucho este álbum completo, además de las (re)conocidas "Otherside" (en mi top), "Scar Tissue" y la ya mencionada, descubrí que "Parallel Universe", "I Like Dirt" y "Purple Stain" me gustaron mucho, mucho. La canción final ("Road Trippin'") me parece muy de despedida, ad hoc, y "Get on Top" me recuerda a "Give It Away", como same energy. En fin, que los RHCP lo que hacen, lo hacen muy bien y este es un disco muy buenazo. 9.5/10

This is a strong Chilli Peppers albums - really liked it. The hits are good, and it was fun to hear the lesser known cuts - especially “Get on Top”. Another Rick Rubin success, and having John Fruscienti back didn’t hurt either. 4.5 stars and rounding up. Good+

Another deep drag of nostalgia and a trip down memory lane. I think no matter what decade this would be released in it would still be a great album. I prefer Californiacation to the later stadium Arcadium album and I would go so far as to say this is RHCP best collection of music.

This album starts off strong with 'Around the World' and then just keeps it rolling with 'Parallel Universe' and 'Scar Tissue'. It's hard to find a song on this album that isn't a banger; even the softer songs hit hard. This is arguably the Red Hot Chili Peppers at their best.

When I was in middle school and high school, whenever I rode the bus to school I would be listening to music on my Sony Walkman portable CD player. Inevitably, people would usually ask me what I was listening to. Whenever I was listening to something that I knew most people my age wouldn’t have heard of or liked (most of the time) I would say I was listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers. They were popular enough and seemingly acceptable enough for most people not to question me after I gave that answer. Now, more often than not, it feels like I have to defend liking this band for any number of reasons. Truth be told, from about 2000-2006, I was obsessed with RHCP. After hearing this album, I decided that I wanted to one day make music that sounded like them. Even though I never really did that exactly, they were the first band I remember making me feel that way. What’s undeniable about this band is immense talent of John Frusciante, Flea, and Chad Smith. What’s also undeniable is the chemistry that these 4 people have together. Anthony Kiedis can very often be a ridiculous and embarrassing singer and lyricist, but he never sounds insincere, for better or worse. What’s always apparent with RHCP is that these 4 people need each and need this band. This is a band that’s forged through trauma, grief, and addiction that always sounds like they love each other and love making music, even after almost 40 years together. Californication is the album that got me into them. I’m not sure if it’s their best or my favorite, but it’s definitely one where it felt they were able to tap into some form of magic. As with any RHCP album, there are some notably groan-inducing lyrics, but there also a whole bunch of bangers.

This album highlights the quite spectacular impact Frusciante has on this band. Coming off the back of serious heroin addiction, Flea got him back into the fold, he cleaned up and they let him loose on this. Everything he does on this album brings out the best in the other members. His chemistry with Flea and Chad are just a joy to the ears and his background harmonies just lift Kiedis sometimes nonsensical lyrics somewhere else. Too many great tracks too sit and list but it rarely flags for a moment, ignoring the huge singles, songs like Saviour, Emit Remmus and This Velvet Glove just highlight not only how strong this whole album is but also the direction in which they were heading for By The Way (which doesn’t come close to touching this album despite its huge success) A joy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Peppers' 7th and the most successful album. Frusciante is back! Billboard's critic Paul Verna, mentioned that the album brought out "the group's softer, melodic side", as opposed to their previous six albums. I have underestimated RHCP previously because of their popularity. Their songs were everywhere on tv and radio. Now I understand that I was wrong. This album's sound is technically perfect and melodic!

Let's go oOoOO o RHCPs fucking rock. I always had one of their songs in my little folder when I first started playing guitar. They were almost always the most fun. They are so playful, never afraid to do something they think is fun, and it just shines through in their music. It's really a step-up from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Frusciante has some of the most memorable riffs ever on this album, Smith makes every song a Bop to listen to, Kiedis is as crazy as always and Flea always fucking delivers haha. I grew up with this album, and some songs like "Parrallel Universe" and "Easily" made me surprised that I'd never really heard them before, and now it's impossible for me to choose a favorite song to put on my playlist so it's an undeniable 5 for me.

I’d riot if canonical albums like this weren’t included. One of my favourites and a long-term resident in the tape deck of my Tarago when I was in high school. I can understand people not enjoying all their stuff, but there’s just something about the Peppers. Only downer- a bit too much rhymy stuff in Around the World.

This is RHCP at a perfect blend of funky-punky aggro, and softened alternative pop rock sound. It is tight, but still feels full. The only thing I might change is the song order, as many placements of songs in the overall album experience stick out to me.

Un dels grans retorns de la història del rock. Després de 'One Hot Minute' i de gairebé una década des de Blood Sugar, no crec que ningú esperés gaire de la banda a aquelles alçades, ni ells mateixos. I es treuen de la màniga, no un bon retorn, sinó el seu millor disc. Una banda sonora perfecta pel final del mil.lenni que superava tot el que havien aconseguit fins ara. Ho prova el fet que la banda des d'aleshores als seus shows recupera molts pocs temes anteriors al disc; una segona part de la seva carrera que els catapultaria com a banda d'estadis. Qui ho havia de dir al 1998!

Californication es sin duda un discazo que cierra con broche de oro la década de los noventa. Para los fans de siempre de los RHCP fue quizá el disco en el que se vendieron y se fueron al Rock Pop de MTV, y aunque es posiblemente cierto, también es el disco que los movió a la cima, del cual se desprenden sus rolas más conocidas (hoy en día) y sus videos más emblemáticos. Con todo y eso, yo casi veo un disco que se parte en dos, con la primera mitad llena de los sencillos que sonaron en todos lados y que tal vez a los fans de antes no les encantan; y luego otra mitad con rolas más oscuras para esos fans y que no se movieron en radio o tv. Mi favorita es seugro alguna de las que movieron como sencillo, pero no sé decir cuál de todas.

Gran disco en ese entonces, gran disco hoy, casi 23 años después. Aunque no 100% el sonido anterior de los RHCP, más garage o más crudo, mantiene la esencia y la energía del grupo apoyándose en una producción impecable. Además, la calidad de la mayoría de las canciones es excelente y está muy bien balanceado en el tipo de canción. Mi única queja sería que es un poco largo y las canciones 11-14 sí hacen un bache que después levanta con Road Trippin' para cerrar el disco, aunque siendo realistas era poco probable que esto no pasara si acomodas al inicio 6 (o hasta 7) canciones de primerísimo nivel. 5 estrellas, no hay discusión. Songs: Scar Tissue, Parallel Universe, Other Side, Around the World, Californication, Easily, Road Trippin'

Growing up I didn't really listen to RHCP. I liked a few of their singles but didn't branch out and instead dismissed them as that band that can't stop referencing California into their songs. After listening to Californication, I wish I could've looked through that silly assumption and enjoyed the music. This is really good shit. Aside from the California references in at least 3 of their songs, you have plenty of funky basslines and guitar riffs, some sombre acoustic melodies, and chill vibes. There is also no band songs, even the bonus tracks are good. Favourite songs were the title track, Road Trippin, Parallel Universe and Otherside.

Noni! Jos kuulisin tän levyn tänään ekaa kertaa sais tää luultavasti arvosanaksi 4/5. Näin ei kuitenkaan ole. Tää on the one and only ensinmäinen levy josta mulla on tarkkoja muistoja ja joka starttas mun kohdalla bändien ja levyjen kuuntelemisen syrjäyttäen yksittäiset radio mafian hittipaskat. Tottakai siis maailmassa oli niihin aikoihin muitakin asioita kun musa - kuten vaik legopalikat ja muut nassikalle kiinnostavat jutut, mutta tää on jättänyt jälkensä. Se että tää oli se eka jatkuvalla toistolla cd-soittimessa pyörinyt levy, varsinkin kun tää oli jo tullessaan aika arvostettu, on tavallaan poikinut sen että mun käsitys hyvästä valtavirtarockista on pretty much tää levy. Kun siis saan uuden valtavirtarock-levyn kuunneltavaksi niin ennemmin tai myöhemmin mä varmaan vertaan sitä myös tähän plattaan. Jos mennään sitten itse sisätöön. Voi vittu siis onhan tää tasapainonen hieno levy jossa RHCP onnistuu tiputtamaan pois se ”sekopääfunkkirockbändi”-viitan mitä ne kannatteli tähän asti. Ja siis hei, harvoin sanon näin, mutta tässä levyssä ei oo mun mielestä turhia biisejä. Tää on myös oikeen mittainen. …vai olisko se kuitenkin se nostalgia? 5/5

RHCP is a polarizing band, they are all over the place and have a massive repertoire of singles that you'll hear on the radio. Haven't listened to this album through but it is absolutely stacked with hits, and they're all solid. The guitarist John Frusciante has a history in and out of the band, this is his first album back after a long hiatus, and this summer (2022) he's returning again to the band for a tour. I'm seeing them live for the first time so excited for that and this album helped me get in the mood. Kiedis is the weakest link, but also the band doesn't work without him. All of the pieces fit together well, and this particular lineup has a great synergy in their instrumentals. This album slaps, the b-sides are mostly good, not great. Porcelain is probably the lowest point in the album, it's kind of whiplash to go into something so slow after nonstop high-energy bangers, and then it's right back to it afterwards.

-"Around The World" and "Parallel Universe" get kinda heavy at the end -"Purple Stain" is quite catchy, the stutter-style lyrics really grab your attention -"Right on Time" is a cool alternation of slow-style lyrics and blazing-fast lyrics.

Jak mówi klasyk, nie trzeba dużo mówić. Każdy zna, zapewne każdy słuchał w dzieciństwie. Oczywiście że brzmi to trochę powtarzalnie, ale sam akurat nie czuję, jakoby się przedłużało. Bangery typu Californication albo Otherside mówią same za siebie. Rozdarty między 4 a 5, bo nigdy wielkim RHCPowcem nie było, w obliczu poprzednich ocen daję tę 5, bo bym żałował

Dream of Californication, more like Viva Californication There's really not a lot to say here, this is RHCP - you know them, you heard them, they do one thing and you already have an opinion on it. Californication clocks at under an hour, and even then it starts to drag its feet, and you start to feel like you've been listening to the same song for too long. The thing is I really, really love that song. And credit wher it's due, there are songs like Get on Top to pick up the pace and Porcelain to slow it down, so the listening experience is actually decently varied, and coupled with how simply fun it is to drift away in the sound and listen to the distinct vocals, I really cannot find it in me to focus on the flaws. Otherside and Californication are absolute classics and the obvious standouts of the album.

This is probably my most played album of all time. My brother had got this CD in 1999 when Scar Tissue hit. This album had TV commercials that aired to hype its release. The next summer in 2000 we basically had this on repeat on our portable Panasonic CD player. I personally can’t rate this album lower than 5 stars. It has so many songs that I’ve heard thousands of times and I still put on playlists to this day. Otherside is among my favourite songs of all time. I knew in the 2000s this album lost it towards the end. Listening how this one way too long. They could have cut out most of the songs after Easily could have been cut out.

The first album I've been given that I've heard of before (even if I've never listened to it the whole way through). The title track is as good as it's ever been, and the whole album mostly succeeds in keeping the atmosphere alive. I think it drags a little bit toward the end and if somebody told me this was their favorite album ever, I'd look at them sideways. With that said, it's definitely a good album with a few standouts, it's just not exceptional.

I wasn’t always a pepper head but on one of our road trips my wife and I listened to almost all of their albums as we traveled through Utah and Arizona and I was converted. It was the perfect soundtrack and this album was one of those so it always brings me back to Sedona and the beautiful landscapes and cruising down the highways and byways. This isn’t my favorite pepper album but it is still really good. There is a magical quality to this group, maybe due to the drugs or the skills but their songs are so unique and unlike anything else. They were never afraid to go crazy. My favs are Around the World, Parallel Universe, Scar Tissue, Otherside, Get On Top, Californication, Porcelain, and I Like Dirt. The album cover is iconic and always makes me want to sit by the pool, though idk if I’d swim in it if that was the color.

Loved Scar tissue, The Other Side, Get On Top. They are so comfortable switching from rock to ballad to rap to pop. Very talented band and when they lost a member the replacement filled the big shoes so seamlessly. “Get On Top” was a look at how versatile they were with a rendition of a Rap Rock song in the early years of rap. Well done gentlemen. Keep these amazing artist coming. I was ready to jump ship last week this week

This is likely a 4, but let's listen to the whole thing. I generally like the sound... Lots of familiar songs, but not ones that I love -- it is soul-searching, and that kind of overshadows the good funky sound that I like. It would really be like a 3.5, so I'll go ahead with 4/5.

I knew some RHCP songs before this album, but I'd never listened to a full album before. I didn't really get it. Started this album thinking it would be a 3 and moved it to a 4 after repeated listens. It's a very masculine album that embodies the so cal attitude. It's an album made for roadtripping, playing video games with the guys, and just hanging out in the summer. It accomplishes a lot without seeming to try very hard. I respect it for that. four stars well-earned.

Нормально музло. Старше потенциального слушателя лет на 15-20, конечно, ну да и хуй бы с ним. С Parallel Universe прокачался нормально. Around the World, Californication, Otherside, Road Trippin' - хорошие, крепкие треки. Остальное не бесит. Хотя мусора тоже завезли, что выкинуть можно. Сюда мог бы отнести и Scar Tissue, которая вроде как самый популярный трек с альбома, получивший Грэмми. Вообще пустышка попсовая. Но в целом годный попс, который способен наравне с Coldplay послужить примером.

In Conclusione: Conosco molto bene questo album perché è uscito quando ho iniziato a suonare la chitarra e lo ascoltavo letteralmente a ripetizione. Non lo ascoltavo ormai da almeno 10 anni (ogni tanto ascolto giusto Road Trippin'). Riascoltarlo per intero mi ha fatto un'impressione inaspettata. All'epoca era snobbato un po' come l'album commerciale dei RHCP e in un certo senso è effettivamente anche vero rispetto per dire a Blood Sugar Sex Magik, però devo dire che l'impressione che ho avuto riascoltandolo oggi è molto diversa. Sarà un po' perché il commerciale di oggi è sicuramente molto peggio del commerciale di ieri però io invece l'ho percepito come più accessibile e sintetico. Sicuramente ha perso un po' della parte più energica e grezza aggiungendo i ritornelloni un po' pop, però allo stesso tempo mi ha creato un mix coerente dove le parti più pop e cantabili sono incorniciate comunque dagli assoli oggettivamente brutti ma che in qualche modo funzionano di Frusciante così come il basso spinto di Flea e le vecchie parti più funky/fusion. Diciamo che non hanno perso di spontaneità e anzi in qualche modo mi arrivano come più vulnerabili. Capire i testi (quando lo ascoltavo non capivo niente) mi ha fatto strano, non mi aspettavo che fossero così onirici e un po' filosofici, mi aspettavo una cosa molto più diretta. Ho apprezzato certe immagini ma ho anche avuto l'impressione che il criterio principale della scrittura dei testi fosse il suono delle parole più che il senso. Sicuramente non mi aspettavo riferimenti a Cobain o a Star Wars in Californication. Una cosa che mi ha colpito negativamente è la produzione, all'inizio pensavo che le cuffie bluetooth mi avessero switchato in mono tanto è chiuso il mix a livello spaziale. Nonostante questo mi piace la batteria che invece non avevo mai notato più di tanto, Chad suona tutto coi rimshot e devo dire che gli dà una bella spinta in più. Penso di aver apprezzato di più anche le sfumature del cantato di Antony. Un pezzo che non apprezzavo da adolescente ma che invece ho rivalutato come uno dei migliori dell'album è Porcelain. Diciamo che a me non dispiace quando i gruppi diventano un po' più accessibli anche se è un po' una unpopular opinion. Gli darei un 5 solo per la nostalgia ma penso che la produzione, alcune parti un po' incerte a livello compositivo e certe svolte pop di troppo mi fanno scendere il voto a 4. Comunque Road Trippin' per me rimane un gran pezzo. Strano eh, ma una gran pezzo.

Quanti ricordi! Estate 1999, avevo 15 anni. Ero rimasto talmente colpito dai soli di Frusciante nel videoclip di Scar Tissue che davano su MTv, che comprai quest'album a 5 mila lire dal marocchino al mercato, una copia pirata ovviamente. Secondo me Californication funziona. È bilanciato e variegato. Ci sono alcune tracce che passano in sordina ma non per questo meno valide. Darei un 5 emotivo, ma il mio album preferito rimane One Hot Minute, che forse è l'album che suona meno RHCP degli altri (purtroppo non è in lista).

This album is a quintessential 90's record. The poppy upbeat vibe just resonates with me. Most every song has me grooving at my desk, and singing along. There's a heavy dose of nostalgia to this one as well, but I'm trying to temper it as much as I can. Still this one is a gem.

Вдобавок своему фанк-металл стилю Перцы смогли добавить спокойные и расслабленные композиции (их больше чем обычно), но при этом динамика альбома не теряется.

My favorite version of the Chili Peppers is the one where John Frusciante came back to the band after rehab (which starts with this album) and encouraged the band to lean in to the California Pop sound. I love it when the Chili's embrace the harmonies like the Eagles and Beach Boys would do. They do that on the better songs from this album, and really fine tune that element on their follow up album, "By The Way", which is my favorite RHCP album. I always waver between calling the band the Chili's and the Pepper's. They surely don't give a shit. But my wavering is somewhat fitting. Sometimes Kiedis goes all in with the harmonies, but other times he realizes he's got an epic bass player in Flea who just wants to funk out all over the place. And that's not a bad thing at all. There's great beauty in a song like "Porcelain" that sits just fine with Flea slapping that bass all over on "Around The World" and "Emit Remmus". I'll never understand why a song like "I Like Dirt" exists among these gems. Makes me wish Rick Rubin would have tightened up the number of songs a bit.

The return of Frusciante meant the return of RHCP period. It’s easy to forget that by 1999 they had become a somewhat forgotten band. In Californication however they delivered an absolute monster of an album - the chemistry was back and the band were reborn. The singles were massive; Scar Tissue, Californication, Otherside and Around the world were all huge. But it’s when you get past the big hits where the real joy of this album lies. There is still lots of old school raw RHCP funk but blended increasingly with the more mellow, melodic side of the band (for me this is where more of the stronger tracks on the album lie). Keidis’ vocals are his strongest yet, Flea and Smith are an absolute force of a rhythm section and Frusciante sprinkles the magic on top.

This is probably a three star album, let's be honest, but I've got a massive soft spot for it, so bumping it up to four. I'm a John Frusciante fanboy, for sure. A lot of these tracks made great karaoke tunes, too. Fave track - "Otherside", maybe, or "Parallel Universe"

Haven’t heard it in full for a while, not as good as I remembered it but it is a classic alright, another one from the golden era of MTV, remember the videos it came with? My good did they went the extra mile for that, back then hit records needed hit videoclips and californication was a superb example of that, cinematic Impressionism in Scar Tissue, concept video with otherside and of course, state of the art technological advance show off with Californication, me and my siblings would spend hours looking a those clips and even downloading them from the internet, good times. Now the record: it’s maybe too long and tries to keep the funk from BSSM even though they were in a completely different place by then, some songs are just too out of the concept even if they sound Peppers AF, the word californication sound just silly nowadays but let’s remember that this is the album that gave us Scar tissue and Road trippin which are both classics for the ages.

Back in '99-'00 I was almost sick and tired of this album as it was pretty much everywhere and that's a sure way to make me run away from an artist. However, I've always been a RHCP fan and I just gave this album time to cool off. How long? Some 15 years x-D ...I still think Bloodsugarsexmagik is their peak achievement and I resented a bit that they lost a huge chunk of their funkier side, not entirely, but just enough. Guess they've reclaimed some of it since, but, anyway, Californication is a huge album.

Was lucky enough to see the Red Hot Chilli Peppers at T in the park 2006 one of my all time favourite live performances. This is one of these albums I really like, from Around the World to Californication is brilliant, with Otherside being one of my favourite songs, but the second half is such a let down I usually never get to the end of the album, which is a shame as the album ends on road tripping which is a great song. The mastering on this album is also very poor, these two points make it hard to give this album full marks, but a very good 4 star album that is one of my personal favourites.

I generally don't like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and this is definitely a Red Hot Chili Peppers album. The white boy funk is present, the terrible lyrics are present (just naming places does not a lyric make), the whinging songs about drug addiction are present and yet it is far more bearable than anything else they have ever done. This was John Frusciante's first album back with the band after he went all in on the smack for most of the '90s. His guitar sound on this album coupled with the Rick Rubin production is massive. It's a shiny big pop-rock album that even manages to make the sporadic bursts of rap-rock listenable.

I don't know why, but I find RHCP annoying if I listen to them for too long. I shouldn't, but I do, for some unbeknownst reason. It might be their vocalist, their repetitive style or California looming over almost every song. Anyway, it was hard for me to focus on the whole album. Nonetheless, every song as an isolated entity has a lot of value: guitar & bass are splendid and compositions are live and catchy. Overall: despite my resentment it's a good record. Highlight: Road Trippin' - Frusciante's voice with acoustic setup did wonders here

I wasn't crazy about this album when it first came out, as it was stylistically pretty far from the BloodSugarSexMagik-era Chili's that I worshipped at the time.

Flea was the headliner at a local bookshop called Skylight Books in Los Feliz circa 1997. He was part of a reading by several local writers and poets. Flea, being the badass muscle-bound bass player for the CPs also played expendable tough guys in movies. The audience at Skylight was under strict instructions that they would not be able to leave the bookstore once in and they locked the doors right before it started. Flea, for some reason entered from the back of the store and arrived with a bodyguard who stood just offstage, crossed his arms and stared at the audience while Flea read. There couldn't have been more than 40 people there. It was the most ridiculous (and pretentious) thing I'd ever witnessed from a celeb. Especially being that Flea was a resident of Los Feliz, a small relatively friendly community just east of Hollywood where you'd bump into neighbors and familiar faces on Vermont ave or at House of Pies. I could give / take Anthony Kiedis. I always thought he and his hairless nipples were ridiculous. And, that end shot of him running at the end of Under the Bridge was even more reason to hate him. Anyhow, I think this album came after the band had already been replaced by other crappy bands like Incubus, Dashboard Confessional and others. In many ways RHCP had jumped the shark and then they put out this album, which was .... as much as I hate to say, catchy and enjoyable. Even now, more than 10 years later this album is still fun. There's nothing new here, it's the same RHCP, this album doesn't break any boundaries or explore the far reaches of late 90's rock and maybe that's what I like about it. It's less pretentious, almost like an admission by the band ... "Yep, we're old and your parents probably listened to us when they were young, but we can still put together a song with some melodies and entertain you." Since then, Anthony Kiedis put on a shirt, and grew a little caterpillar on his top lip. And, tho I don't know for sure, I'm hoping that Flea ditched the bodyguard and decided to either get his ass beat or fight his own battles when reading poetry. https://youtu.be/GLvohMXgcBo?t=202 but with a little less fanfare and was ridiculous wThis album is similar in that it believes it's very deserving of all kinds of airplay and praise, to be held in high regard it's much better than it is and deserves airplay and praise

For some reason this album really makes me laugh. I want to hate it but I really just can't, its as fun as it is stupid. I wouldn't necessarily call this butt-rock since its just a slight peg up, making this taint-rock. The first song and "get on top" really reminds me of this https://youtu.be/LYjqm9HIGtQ. This album feels like how the band members look, greasy, kind of overtly sexual in a gross kind of way. Maybe I can't shake the fact that this music was made by pedophiles and rapists but I don't feel clean listening to it, even though the music really is pretty fun and kind of hilarious. I did get really tired of the singing after about halfway through the album though, he really does sound the exact same on almost every song. But the album picks up again in the last bit with some unique songs. Still, part of me can't totally get into these songs because they almost sound like a parody of something else with how played-up and samey they are. Overall, the album was good but there are a lot of things that put me off. Favorite track: Right on Time Least Favorite track: Otherside

The beginning actually reminds me a little bit of the Kidrock album from last week. I guess that was a sound for that time period. I like the rest of the album (after the first track) better, though I still wouldn’t buy the album.

Saved Prior: Scar Tissue, Otherside, Californication Saved Off Rip: Parallel Universe Cutting Edge: Easily Overall Notes: Other than the three songs I knew already, the other songs kinda sounded the same. I wasn't able to devote full attention to the album so maybe I just wasn't listening close enough, but nothing especially stood out in a positive way. Will probably come back to this one.

When The Good Place took a stab at Red Hot Chili Peppers indicating that fandom of this band was a ticket to "The Bad Place" I had one of those moments where I looked around and mouthed "Me?" while pointing at myself. Honestly on this album I think I understand that jab a bit more than when it comes to Stadium Arcadium (an album I'll defend with my dying breath). Nonetheless, Californication and a few other songs are indisputably good jams. His rock rap just threw me a bit at times.

It’s no Blood Sugar Sex Magic. I get this is Frusciante‘s triumphant return on guitar after he left back in the early 90s but I dunno. This record is a bit too tame for me. The singles are all ok, but overall the rest of the album is just fine. It’s not terrible, it’s not great. I feel like it’s like the zenith of just regular ass RHCP songs. There’s nothing here that grabs me like their earlier stuff. Probably a good listen for someone just diving in but the old stuff is better. Hate to be that guy but it’s how I feel.

Listening to a bunch of RHCP songs back to back made me wonder if it wasn’t for Flea how long they would have been relevant or if they would even be relevant in the first place. The songwriting abilities of the members are…lacking and Antony doesn’t have that great a voice, although I appreciate him trying out a lot of different styles. The distinctive groove of Flea’s bass is really the only great thing about RHCP. He clearly has a lot of funk and disco influences and his skill never fails to shine through. Overall, a listenable album but I don’t think it really holds up that well in comparison to the albums of rock giants they were up against at the time (if I want to hear rapping over a groove baseline then I’ll listen to RATM) Best tracks: Californication/Scar Tissue Worst tracks: Road Trippin’/Get On Top (Also points deducted for Antony being a nonce)

A whole different album beyond the singles that have been played to death on alternative rock/mainstream radio. Pleasantly surprised by the more hard-driving uptempo tracks on this one, as they push well beyond what's expected from an RHCP song. The slower, ballad-like tracks come out of left field as well, but balance some of the more indulgent energies on the rest of the LP.

I'm old enough to remember when this came out, and was absolutely everywhere, and I absolutely hated it at the time.

But every song relies on the same formula, which wears a bit thin, and it's far too long.

While the return of RHCP's impressive guitarist definitely influenced their turning point album, "Californication", I think the irresistible groove and kicks of it should be credited more on the amazing and now one of my favorite bass player, Flea. And of course, I am expecting the single that boasts that infamous video game themed music video. It's as good as I remember (although "Otherside" is personally better). Aside from being a nice title track, the song "Californication" is also the last great song in the entire album. I could consider the closer "Road Trippin'" decent, but anything between it and the title track is personally monotonous and uninteresting. That is disappointing because as I listen to the first five tracks, I thought that I'll have another five star album. Still, I love the unique funky flavor of it. I get the hype around these guys. But if I would listen to it again, I would stop right after the title track.

Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers (1999) Incorporating elements of hip hop, prog rock, and funk, this album seems designed to broaden the commercial appeal of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ well established and diverse musical explorations of sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. I can imagine that some diehard fans of RHCP’s earlier work might have been disappointed in this development. Anthony Kiedis’ squeaky but clean lead vocals are layered over good, elaborate rock arrangements. Guitarist John Frusciante returns to the RHCP lineup, after a hiatus from 1992-1998 (during which time he had been replaced by Dave Navarro, formerly of Jane’s Addiction). This fundamental change has made a great impact on the sound of Californication. What we get is more mellow, with a predominance of relatively soft grooves—a suitable accompaniment to the widely referential and geographically diverse lyrics, but I’m not sure it improves the art. Solid and melodic bass lines by Flea, and splashy cymbal-heavy drum work by Chad Smith provide musical quality and sonic texture. The album’s diversity sustains interest, but the variety seems aimless. The track “Savior” could be interpreted in a way that inspires thought, but it falls short due to exaggerated ambiguity lack of depth. The sound of the closing track “Road Trippin’” is refreshing, with acoustic stylings and accompanying string ensemble. It almost makes the serious listener want to start the album over again. Almost. It’s good background music, but none of the tracks stand out as immediately gripping (with the possible exception of “I Like Dirt”, which is quite entertaining, with its funky wah-guitar stylings toward the end). I think if one listened to this album a dozen times one could grow to love it, but on first listen, it’s not top shelf. Am I the only one who thinks it’s too long? 3/5

When a legit album starts to sound a lot like a parody of the band, you have to worry for the direction the band are taking. Kiedis’ lyrics are frequently gibberish (sometimes literal gibberish) and the man has nothing to say- all non sequiturs and Dr Seuss rhyming and A level poetry) and renders the whole project a disappointment, despite the talents of Frusciante and Flea. That isn’t to say there aren’t highlights and a lot of it is catchy but for a band with our attention they sure waste an opportunity.

I use to like the Chili Peppers, Mother's Milk was pretty good, they were funky, edgy and different than most of the stuff on the radio or MTV and they put on amazing live shows. But something happens when you sell a gazillion copies of a record, chart high on the charts and attract the attention of celebrities and a mainstream following of teenage girls and loser hipsters. They're live shows are probably still a spectacle with the help of a much bigger budget and same with their music, big budget, accessible radio-friendly music so another bazillion people can stream it on Spotify or whatever. Kind of makes me sad...

попса пидорская, тяжести никакой Ну вот и вылезло очередное восхваляемое нетакимикаквсе говнецо. Вообще РХЧП для меня всегда были одной из тех групп, о которых я знал, но слушать не было никакого желания. Таких довольно много, даже среди супер популярных, поэтому я думал, что ничего особенного. Но все чаще мне начинает казаться, что их не слушает вообще никто. Все знают, но никто намеренно не думает «послушаю-ка я сегодня Ред Хот Чилли Пепперс, целый альбом». Этж сюр какой-то. Семён Слепаков разве что подобным может заняться. Мне не нравятся РХЧП. Причем не нравятся как раз по тем причинам, за что их привыкли любить. Мелодичный вокал и игривый речитатив Энтони Кидиса? — Раздражающий акцент, сладкий неприятный голосок и абсоютно уебанский клоунский флоу. Серьёзно, даже Бисти Бойз лучше читали. Элегантные лаконичные партии Джона Фрушанте? — Одинаковый палм-пикинг в половине песен без единого интересного мелодичного хода. Грувовые фанковые бас-партии Фли? — Да дрочево какое-то, слушать заёбывает, пусть и есть несколько знаменитых ликов. Я никогда не был о них особо высокого мнения, но ознакомившись поближе, опустил планку на самое дно. Реп-рок вообще был большой ужасной ошибкой. Да, и Рейдж Эгейнст Машин. Да, и Корн. Да, и Систем оф э Даун (самые речитативные их песни). Это же все говно бля, кринжатурное говно. И на примере этих калифорнийских крекеров мы можем видеть почему. Сука реп-ориентированные песни это просто ужас, рука сама тянется выключить. А как же мелодичные треки? Ну, они получше. Есть что-то неплохое, Otherside там, Emit remmus. Но это всё равно звучит как хуёвый попс нулевых, порождённый Колдплеем. Даже тот факт, что альбом 99 года не спасает. Если это и не подражание, значит оно также стало катализатором вот этого вот всего. Ну его нахуй, нахуй ред хот чилли пепперс, нахуй. Ещё и в Road trippin спиздили мелодию из Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely Хускера Ду. Нахуй ред хот чилли пепперс, 4/10

listening to this album on a proper pair of headphones is both a revelation and a form of torture. hearing songs like Scar Tissue on literally anything better than an aftermarket stereo FM broadcast in a honda from the 80s reveals a lot of nuance and neat performance details by a band of incredibly talented people. the downsides of course are that a) the mix/master is atrocious, and b) the fact that it's RHCP. Louder tracks reduce audiophile grade equipment to sounding like you're using a 5 pack of skull candy earbuds from 2003, quieter tracks are exhausting in the way that only brick wall mixes are. Excusing that, not that you should, the larger problem is that RHCP are consistently one of the biggest misuses of musical talent in recorded history but that's almost neither here nor there. at its best it's got earworms that are still living 20 years later. when it's not, it's Anthony Kiedis literally jiving (poorly) over aimless wanking. it's almost a shame that the good parts, while few and far between, are as good as they are. would be easier to just ignore entirely.

I had my RHCP epiphany while I listened to Californication: when you sandwich the "linger on your block and give the finger to a cop" goofball funk rock sex rhymes between your softer songs about the Hollywood lifestyle and addiction and all that, it just makes one sound about as earnest as the other. It's like, come on, LL Cool J, are you Bad or do you Need Love? I'm certainly not buying both. The starting track says it all for the album (and the band): the verses and the chorus try to have their two admittedly well-crafted sounds co-exist, but one inevitably comes at the expense of the other. In this case, they're both disposable fluff, but at least one tries to have a little fun—even if said fun was better earlier in their careers. Key Tracks: Around the World, Get On Top

How odd. After Bloog Sugar Sex Magik I was almost reluctant to play this. The first tracks did nothing to reassure me. Then scar tissue came on and it was a genuine reaction of "oh yes, of course! This is why people like the chillis." It (scar tissue) goes on just a tiny bit too long, and otherside takes just a tiny bit too long to get going. I'm surprised at how badly otherside has aged, and my desire to skip every track other than road trip was nigh on impossible to resist. Overall, this is a hugely forgettable album with a couple of good tracks.

I used to be sort of into the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I bought Blood Sugar Sex Magik on CD like everyone else, and saw them in concert at Lollapalooza at least once, maybe twice (my memory is a bit hazy from those days, haha). However, it didn't take long before I bored of them, and my appreciation for them turned into a strong dislike. They definitely established a unique style, and I give them credit for that, but then they never evolved after that. It was just the same thing, over and over. Not really a fan and this album didn't do anything to change that. 2 stars.

2.9 - "Is Anthony Kiedis going to ruin this song, too?" That's the question that came up again and again listening to this record. I'm baffled as to why they keep him around. The interplay between Flea's bass and Frusciante's guitar is stellar as ever, especially on tracks like "Parallel Universe." And as with other RHCP records I've listened to, I do actually like a couple songs: "Scar Tissue" and "Porcelain." But on other tracks like "Around the World" and "Get on Top", Kiedis is like a shit-flinging gorilla. Probably the worst offense is "Purple Stain", in which he describes fingering a woman on her period (WTF?!). The backing band is the only thing buttressing Kiedis from tumbling head-first into the gutter.

The first time I heard these guys was 1991. I bought the Blood Sugar Sex Magik album and all I can say is that, at the time, I was looking for music that didn't sound like anything else. And, like, the song Give It Away just seemed like - wait, is this guy having sex with some girl's entire family? Like what is this about? It seemed like something my parents would hate. But now, looking back on most of the songs by this band, nothing seems all that good. Scar Tissue is maybe the song that sticks on this one. But in the first track, he rhymes 'entertain ya' with 'Pennsylvania' and then the sweat stains on the rhymes in Californication are real rough. And then comes Purple Stain and I'm like, man, fuck you.
