A Very Good Album...,
This review is from: The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (Audio CD)
So, admittedly, you'd be in the definite minority if you said that this was unreservedly the Chilis best work. What you may be surprised is how close it actually comes to 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik'
Earlier Chili Peppers albums are not that good. They suffer from poor production, a lack of experience, and is the sound of a band partying harder than they play. The party theme is still ongoing, but this album sounds a million times better, and is actually listenable.
Now onto the songs. 'Fight Like a Brave' is a grower. It sounds a bit of a mess, but is a great footstomping call-to-arms. 'Me & My Friends' is another in a similar vein, as is the excellent 'Organic Anti Beat-Box Band'. 'Funky Crime' is a slower, funkier song, as is 'Walking On Down The Road'.
It's really the most rocky album they've ever done. You can argue that this makes it a little hard to digest, and perhaps that's true. But there's hardly a weak song on here, and deserves to be remembered as a classic RHCP album.
