after initial euphoria...,
This review is from: Stadium Arcadium (Audio CD)
i bought this album as soon as it came out. being an avid fan i counted down the hours till i could get, waiting patiently especially after there previous two offerings.
when i bought the album and played it. and i was hooked, the songs sounded great, flea and smith and frusciante were working there magic and keidis was keidis, with his own funkadelic style. and if i had written my review of the album then, i would have given it a 5 star easy and the review would end there.
but now, a couple of weeks on, it has been bumped down and i am playing californication and blood sex sugar magic more again. and the more i thought about it, the more i realised, yes, the songs are good, played well, sounds good and it is technically sound. but it just not unforgetable music i regret to say. all the other albums i knew the songs inside out after just a day, and would continuously sing them to myself even if i was not listening to them. but with this album, yes, when i listen to it i rock out, btu afterwards i forget it, cant recount how the songs sound. and this makes me very sad as a RHCP fan.
it is still a good album, worthy of a higher score if only it was a memorable as the others.
they are still my favourate band and july at earls court is going to be OFF THE HOOK!!!

Totally agree - wo wan quan tong yi !
Californication was the CD that got me up and down TAI MO SHAN in Hong Kong in double quick time ,by mountain bike or legs , and for me is still the most consistent RHCP of the lot.
