Product Description

BBC Review

With Stadium Arcadium freshly plonked atop the UK chart, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are now confirmed as card-carrying Rock Gods. This two-disc intergalactic triumph (titled 'Jupiter' and 'Mars'), glows with Rick Rubin's shiny clean production.

"Dani California" and the jerkily melodic "Tell Me Baby" see the Chilis at their best even if the grown-up band have replaced raunch with romance, mixing gritty funk with acoustic janglings and even choir-boy wailings.

"She's Only 18" winks at their willy-ruled lyrics of yore: Anthony Kiedis may be about 92 now but he can still sing about undies, even if his body fluid fixation a la Blood Sugar Sex Magik has faded. "Wet Sand" rockets from balladry to sing-along stadium rock, while "Hey" boasts too much dinner-jazz strumming to really grab. But amid theprog like melee of sounds Flea's bass-thuddery still rules.

A multi-faceted must. --Zoe Street

This is a good album. A double disc of all good songs is definitely an achievement. However, while all the songs are good, as an album, it gets a bit boring after a while. There is not much variation in this album, and while there are highlights such as Dani California and She's only 18, nothing stands out as exceptional. Also it would have been better to make a single disc album.

Perhaps 3 stars is a little harsh, since there are no bad songs and there's a lot on here, but since the brilliant "By the way" is its predecessor, this one is a little disappointing. Also they have gone for quantity over quality.

So, all in all, I would recommend this one. But don't expect another "By the way".

Ok, well it's a double album and of course theres always going to be problems with that. Having that many tracks theres always going to be stand-out songs and songs that you don't like very much. However out of the 28 songs on the album, all of them do sound very good.. so I think they've managed to pull it off!

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..

Since changing to a heavier rockier sound on their album "One Hot Minute" released back in 1995, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers have grown as artists and musicians on every single album recorded since and this double album "Stadium Arcadium" is their best to date. You would think that a set of 28 songs separated on 2 discs would have some dull moments, but it really doesn't. All of the songs on their ninth album are pure class.

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.

Prior to Stadium Arcadium, the Chili Peppers' discography was, in my eyes, a little patchy and erratic in quality, which didn't stop them from being one of the best live acts on earth. Blood Sugar Sex Magic was and remains one of the great albums of the nineties and, for many people, the Chili Peppers' best offering to date. Then came One Hot Minute while the absent John Frusciante was going through his seven hells, an album which I don't rate highly, bar of course the track My Friends. Californication saw the rebirth of the new pop-rock orientated Peppers and, although suffering from "loudness" issues, had a great many five star tracks and was a return to form, however the album was patchy and the move from funk to a more rock-y sound was not always successful; for me, BSSM is by far the better album. The follow up By the Way was and is, for me, a truly dreadful album. In my opinion, it mixes genres too much, many of the tracks are complete filler, it's too poppy by half and after twelve years of owning the album I still never enjoy sitting through the entirety of it.

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.
