3.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chili Pepper Record- but don't expect By the Way, 10 Aug. 2003
This review is from: The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (Audio CD)
Out of all of the pre-1990 Chili Pepper records, this is by far the best, probably because it was the only one with the original line up (Kleidis, Flea, Slovak, Irons). It therefore has the raw intensity most of their other records lacked. There's plenty of funky good-time music, like 'Fight like a Brave' and 'No Chump love sucker', and some more sophisticated efforts like 'Walking Down the Road' and 'Love Trilogy', which have clever harmonic variations.
Ironically, the most succesful songs when it was released (Me and My Friends) and (Behind the Sun) sound the most dated now, and the obsession among the mid 1980s funk-metal explosion for really lame choruses shouted by all the band members in unison grates. But although this stops the album reaching its full potential, it doesn't stop it being an good listen. This stuff is a world away from their modern material though, but if you were a Californication fan and wanted one old album to prove you were a genuine fan, this would be about the best you could do.
