Here we have The Chilli's seventh studio album.
Produced by Rick Rubin, and showing the return of John Frusciante (replacing the rather temporary but excellent Dave Navarro.. very under-rated on 'one hot minute').
Musically, this is an excellent album. We have a real turbulent mixture of in-your-face rock anthems, and more contemplative sing-alongs.
Given this mix of styles, I feel the album will appeal to both original Chilli Peppers fans - who may prefer the punk attitude of some titles, but it's 'grown-up' enough in other areas to have something for everyone. A substantial number of tracks really makes you feel that you're getting a great slab of music for your money.
Okay... so on to 'sound quality.
The guardian (newspaper) described the album as suffering ''excessive compression and distortion''. The Wikipedia article on 'Loudness Wars' specifically states Californication as an example of compressed poorly recorded music. Oh dear. Many fans I know have hunted down previously released versions of the album which have a chance of sounding good on a half decent stereo system.
If you listen on an ipod or in the car you'll love the music for what it is. Play it through something decent, and you'll be reaching for the 'cd eject' button (if it's a CD!). Playing One Hot Minute directly after this CD shows a laughably HUGE gulf in sound quality.
Such a terrible shame to marr the album in this way. It should be a five star album... Can we have a re-master please???

Californication is an old album, but its not showing its age one bit. The album has the perfect blend of slow ballads, funky tracks and brilliant guitar solos, every song is a gem.
5 Best (in my opinion)
1. Californication
2. Parralel Universe
3. Otherside
4. This Velvet Glove
5. Easily

It deserves at least 4 1/2 stars, just because perfection does not exist... so I give it 5, because this album is as close to it as can be!
What can be said that has not already been said about the "Peppers"... and this album which is probably their best to date (although I haven't heard much the latest one yet)!
The music has evolved and mature with the guys, remains outside the mainly "sanitised" stuff played on most commercial radios, the musicians are brilliant as ever, Anthony's voice as great as ever... but most of all, the lyrics! This guy is a genius, a great genius with poetry!
On the par with the great Jim Morrison, Anthony Keidis is a soulful dreamer who knows how to use the power of words and expresses superb values with depth, or with humour, most of the time with both... and I love the word-games ("Califor-ni-cation" anyone?)
The title song remains my favourite, although it is difficult to talk about "favourite" songs with musicians who have that much talent.
Moments of soulful tenderness like "Porcelain" and "Otherside", rebellion against the bad things of this world like "Californication" and "Around The World", self-searching as "Scar tissue", erotic in "Purple Stain".... humour abound in the whole album, everything is there, emotion in all its shapes and colours, expressed with immense talent...
I discovered the RHCPs with this album and it made me want more, want to get all of their discography... I am still far from the complete collection, but have never been disappointed by the talent of these four guys... they sure know how to entertain, without compromising their obvious love of music!
A bad song on this album?... well I can't think of any!

Their best yet. Along with Mother's Milk and BSSM, this completes the Holy Trinity of RHCP releases. The last album to truly show their diversity before a more mature, mellower sound came to the fore. Strange that the Amazon reviewer considers 'Purple Stain' and 'Emit Remmus' fillers. I think they fit the track listing just fine, unlike 'BTW' and 'Stadium...', where the fillers started to appear.

Absolutely unplayable! I love this album but the tone arm just skips over the entire record. Not one track plays properly on the first two sides. The second two sides are *OK* but not great. I ordered a replacement and have the exact same problem. All other records work fine on my player. I guess the first two sides must have been badly cut.

The Chili's always do impress their fans with their typical funky beats and the occational rock balad. This album is not that far from being one of their best yet but it just doesn't have that certain spice that Blood Sugar Sex Magic has. Although you can bop to songs like get on top and around the world, you can also chill to songs like californication and porcelin. I think it is important for bands like the Chili's to keep making great songs and albums because it gives a chance to younger generations to see how great some of todays bands truley are. Forget your Spice Girls, forget your Beatles, forget your Boyzone, the Chili Peppers are by far the greatest band of the past century!!

Like many reviewers on here, I have picked up on the horrible sound quality that this album contains. I myself am not an audiophile and other albums subject to criticism on "Loudness Wars" such as Oasis' "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" I have not picked up on. Funny that 3 of the albums on the audiophile "blacklist" are produced by Rick Rubin. Coinkydink? I think not!This however, is just unpleasant to listen to and it actually gave me a headache in the process. Even the softer/mellow songs such as "Otherside" and "Porcelain" sound horribly distorted and fuzzy.

The songs themselves are actually great (I'd had an old download from years ago which was actually nicer to listen to) and the Chili Peppers have made one of their finest records. In fact most of the songs are Chili Pepper classics and have featured heavily in their sets over the years. I would review each song but I think the burning issue here is the horribly compressed album. Hopefully there will be a remastered edition to officially purchase one day. There's an unmastered version floating around the internet but then I'll feel like I've wasted my money. Plus some of the songs have different parts to them e.g Around the World.

4/5 for the music.

1/5 for the production - The only other album I've heard with such bad digital distortion is the 1997 mix of "Raw Power" by Iggy & the Stooges. Luckily there's the 1973 Bowie mix still available.
