5.0 out of 5 stars His Best, even now in 2011, 6 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Shadows Collide With People (U.S. Version) (Audio CD)
As the proud owner now of pretty much every Frusciante work, I think i'm qualified enough to say that this his his best album. The album opens with the quiet Electronic synth intro of Carvel, which breaks out after a minute into some beautiful tapping guitar work and catchy strong lyrics. The First thing that strikes the listener that ,it dosnt sound like Frusciante's previous three albums as his voice sounds well trained and it's polished production. This is in no doubt down to his drug free life and the fact that this was and still is the most expensive album Frussciante has ever produced. The next track is a powerful duet with Josh Klinghoffer, who has now taken up his duty at the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The next track "Regret", is a little repetitive, however the simple lyrics do hint at his attitude towards his own past. "Second Walk", would fit into any Chili Pepper album, while "Wednesday's Song", keeps the smiles up. The second half of the album opens on "This Cold", which emphasises how strong, Frusciante's voice has got since those Smile for the Streets you Hold days that no one wants to go back too. Track 11, "Song to Sing when I'm Lonely" for me is the Albums centerpiece and truly encapsulates the mood of the album. It's both happy with a surf rock vibe and technically good, while managing to be radio friendly, which is something that could'nt be said for his solo music from the 1990's. The final tracks include the emotional "Time Goes Back" and the apt closing electro acoustic "The Slaughter". So is there any weaknesses? Well Yes, the instrumental electronic and irrelevantly named -00 Ghost 27, sticks out like a sore thumb for being both completely unlistenable and awful, while Failure 33 object fairs little better. Overall though they do little to damage a cohesive, emotional, polished and strong album, from a truly unique artist.
