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..

Alright, so you've probably heard a lot about this album and this band but I think this album and the band deserve so much credit. If you haven't really listened to anything off this album yet, I'm going to convince you to. Read on.

This amazing album has two disks: Jupiter and Mars; both fantastic. Its sound is way different than previous RHCP albums but still keeps they're original style and flair. With crazy bass lines from bassist Flea and funky guitar rifts from guitarist John Frusciante, this album is packed with creativity and has something for everyone. Drums are always great too when you got Chad Smith on them; one of the few guys in rock music these days that keeps a smile on his face.

Songs like "Dani California" and "She's only 18" are a couple of the heavier tracks. "Dani California" is a rocking track with a mind blowing guitar solo. Then you have more funky dance and rap mixes like "Warlocks" and "H*** De Bump." My favourite song off the album is "Especially in Michigan." It's got an awesome chorus and lead singer Anthony Kiedis has amazing vocals on this one. Other favourites of mine are "Discretion Smile", "Wet Sand" and "Make You Feel Better." I love most songs off the album except for three or four, and it's not often you find an album where the greater majority of the tracks are that solid.

The main popular singles are "Dani California" "Snow (hey-oh)" "Tell Me Baby" and "Hump De Bump."

I immediately bought the CD after hearing "Dani California" on the radio back in June 2006.

Some songs should have definitely been made singles. I think "Make You Feel Better" would have been the perfect single. But not only is it not a single, they don't even play it at the concerts! I would have loved to hear that song played live.

By The Way was always going to be a hard act to follow and Red Hot Chili Peppers have responded to the massive success of their previous album by releasing a huge 28-track double album which combines some of the best aspects of their three most successful albums and, although there is nothing on this album which you could pinpoint as a progression as such, it is a release of high quality and integrity - and it's very good indeed, even though it takes a number of listens to really absorb all of the songs. On the first few listens, this release lacks identity in places, but repeated plays rewards the listener by revealing Stadium Arcadium as an album with many layers and hidden charms.

The album belongs to John Frusciante - his superb guitar work dominates the whole of Stadium Arcadium which, with the exception of one or two tracks, is largely excellent, but the RHCP band dynamic is unmistakeable and delivers, on all counts, everything you'd expect from a Red Hot Chili Peppers album. A reasonable question would be to ask whether they could have released a world-beating single album instead of this rather long and varied double disc collection and the answer is probably yes... but I rather like being able to listen to this album repeatedly and to be able to get something new from it every time. It has greater longevity as a double and allows the freedom to express their perhaps less-commercial aspirations and some downright silliness, an unmistakeable, irrepressible and ever-present characteristic of the Chilis. This isn't the best album they've ever produced, but it isn't far behind it.

It's almost worth buying just for 'Wet Sand', one of their finest moments ever.
