5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is over..., 27 Jun 2002
Finally I have got my hands on new material from the absolute Gods of all that is funky!
This song follows on in the vein of where Californication left off, emptier in feel than the highly polished production of the Blood Sugar Sex Magik days, but none the less striking for it. John is proving to be a wonderful backing vocalist, and his voice accompanies Anthony's beautifully here in the chorus.
They even get away with the vocoder effect in the verse.
The band just sound comfortable with one another, more mature, just playing what the hell they want to, and the result is a fine single. Let's hope for more of the same on the album.
