4.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem..., 1 Jan. 2007

This review is from: One Hot Minute [U.S. Version] (Audio CD)
Typically, people will take this album, have a listen and discard it. Upon first listen, a relative new comer to the Chili Peppers will find it difficult to accept the new sound. Veteran Chili fans will notice the darkness that has seemingly taken in the remaining band members - Anthony, Flea & Chad.

With the departure of John Frusciante, the Red Hot Chili Peppers took on Dave Navarro [of Janes Addiction] and went into a new musical direction. One Hot Minute is an album that takes some getting used to. It has a much heavier feel, probably due to Daves heavy-rock sound and to the general vibe within the Chili Pepper camp. There's a distinct feeling of confusion, loneliness and paranoia in the lyrics. The music is heavier than usual. Anthony's voice often merging into a barrage of sound. Chad's drumming is cited as some of his best ever and Flea's basslines just as excellant.

If you're new to the Chili Peppers, I would avoid buying this album until you've come to appreciate just what they're about and what they've been through.

Musically though, it's extremely strong with little in the way of weak songs. An album for the special occasion.
