Top Customer Reviews
The opener "Dani California", which is incidentally the first single taken from the album and the first of a number of highlights, has a great Rock vibe with a catchy chorus and melody. The following track and third single "Snow" is equally as good with a superb melody and chorus. The third highlight "Charlie" has some great moments combining Funk and Rock so incredibly well. The title track "Stadium Arcadium" is a slower mid-tempo track but just as effective. The fifth single "Hump De Bump" has a great Funk vibe and is the fourth highlight. "She's Only 18" is a powerful Rock song followed by "Slow Cheetah" which starts off acoustically and blossoms into another melodious track. "Torture Me" is quite a chaotic but interesting track and "Strip My Mind" has some fantastic heavy electric guitar sounds. "Especially In Michigan" has a cool Pop Rock vibe and "Warlocks" once again showcases their ability to combine Funk and Rock. "C'mon Girl" is another powerful and energetic track, "Wet Sand" is a strong heavy Rock ballad and "Hey" ends the first disc on a soothing and mellow note.
The fourth single "Desecration Smile" is a solid opener to the second disc and is closely followed by the second single "Hey Baby" which has a funky vibe and a great chorus. "Hard To Concentrate" is the fifth highlight of the album with an infectious chorus and soft arrangements.Read more ›
However, Stadium Arcadium puts the flaws of By the Way to right and rates as the Peppers' best or second best work (after BSSM). The production is far more polished and interesting, the sound design is focused and consistent - by which I mean there's isn't a ridiculous mixing of genres and styles - and, most importantly, the songs are fantastic. Not one filler on a double album, it rates to my mind as an outstanding success and richly deserved the grammy awards it garnered. Like the best albums, it is a grower - some songs, boring at first, will unveil their greatness with repeated listens - and once the growth factor is factored in, so to speak, it becomes addictive.Read more ›
Having this many songs has allowed them to really roam free with the amount of different styles of music on the album. Listen to all the songs and you'll find so many different influnces everywhere. Some songs sound like the old Chili's of the Mothers Milk era and others sound more like the modern chilis and some sound like something completely different entirely! And John has really gone to town on the guitar on this album. His more minimalistic style of guitar playing ont he last 2 albums (similar to his solo work) is still present but there is now some absolutely fantastic guitar solos!
I'll start with the 1st CD. Theres the obviously excelllent Dani California. This is then immediately followed up with the pop-tastic Snow (Hey Ho) which has a wonderful little guitar part by John and a very catchy chorus. Straight after this is the much more funky Charlie that really does sound a bit more like old chilis with a more modern poppy chorus and some more wonderful guitar work by John... and what an excellent song it is! Then theres Stadium Arcadium which is most likely going to be a new single.. very similar to the Otherside/Californication style of song. Other highlights on the 1st CD include Slow Cheetah, Especially In Michigan (wonderful guitar!) and the EXCELLENT C'Mon Girl with an excellent bassline from Flea (one of my favourites).
CD2 I would say from first impressions is better than the first..Read more ›

I've never particularly like 'double' albums and this hasn't changed my opinion. The more upbeat funkier songs are enjoyable, however there are far too many plodding ballads with... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Vinpin77
