With BLOODSUGARSEXMAGIK the Chilis produced the defining moment of funk rock and the high point of their career. Raunchy and explicit from the first, the lyrical content was not for the easily offended and frequently strayed into misogyny. Musically, it straddled metal and funk with ease; in addition to the stomping, infectious rockers ("Give It Away", "The Power Of Equality") and the downright funky ("Mellowship Slinky", "Apache Rose Peacock"), all underpinned by Flea's virtuosic but unselfish basslines, the band also showed themselves capable of writing surprisingly melodic ballads ("Breaking The Girl", "Under The Bridge").

Er...wow. This is an INCREDIBLE album. THe songs contrast in styles and emotion, from the bittersweet 'Under The Bridge' to the buoyant 'Give It Away'.
My personal favourite track is 'I Could've Lied', which I could listen to on repeat for days... EVERY track is superb. Even the quirky 'They're Red Hot' is a valuable part of the album.
The album's continuity is excellent, considering the 74 minute duration. I never skip any tracks, and each one contributes to forming the mood of the next.
Track Ratings:
1)The Power Of Equality-8/10 A perfect opener with a brilliant chorus.
2)If You Have To Ask-7/10 Memorable chorus, decent verses.
3)Breaking The Girl-10/10 One of the best tracks, Kiedis at his best.
4)Funky Monks-8/10 Takes a few listens to get into, but when you do it's well worth the wait. Brilliant bass from Flea.
5)Suck My Kiss-10/10 The best up-tempo track, with the fast paced verses building up magnificently to the wonderful 'Suck my kiss...' line.
6)I Could've Lied-10/10 Poetic lyrics and subtle guitar work. Beautiful.
7)Mellowship Slinky In B Major-8/10 Carefully delivered vocals are complimented by the (again) excellent bass.
8)The Righteous & The Wicked-9/10 Sharp guitars and a truly wonderful chorus.
9)Give It Away-10/10 Begins as it means to go on, no messing-straight into funk and (once again!!!!) memorable chorus. This song will stay in your head for hours...
10)Blood Sugar Sex Magik-10/10 Im giving a lot of tens, aren't I... Dark and brooding vocals fit with the BEST guitar work on the album perfectly. Get's int oa VERY funky groove and stays there. Excellent.
11)Under The Bridge-10/10 I only consider this second best song on the album because I've listened to it so many times.

First off, I'd like to state that I'm not a RHCP mega-fan. Having said that, this album is my favourite album, by anyone, ever. It's also worth saying that if you consider yourself an avid Chili Peppers fan on the basis of 'By The Way' then don't bother with this album. You will have probably heard 'Under The Bridge' and read that this album is their greatest offering, (which is true) therefore will expect more of the same mellow type material as heard on 'By The Way,' and the aforementioned mega-hit off this album. You will be bitterly disappointed. This album is funk metal through and through, and the singing is mostly in the rap style. So.... if you're open minded, and want to know what the true Chili Peppers are all about, read on.

The Chili Peppers first 2 albums, (self titled and Freaky Styley) sound to me like nothing more than kinda enjoyable but very amateurish funky jam sessions. It came together in a big way with 'Uplift' with far superior melodies and actual songs! That album, and the subsequent 'Mothers Milk' (which was the first album with the current line-up, and the same line-up as on BSSM) had many a highlight, and I love those albums too. However, BSSM was a giant leap in every respect. With Rick Rubin at the production helm this album sounds like real funk rock pros who know they're at the top of their game, and they set out to create their greatest work. They succeeded totally.

Every single track, with the exception of 'They're Red Hot' (which was obviously intended as a joke throwaway, so it's forgivable) is a 10* winner. Tracks 1 & 2 flow seamlessly together to create an amazing opening medley of pure funky rock with soaring choruses, and cutting lyrics.

'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' completely passed me by back in 1991. I must have been too busy listening to REM, Metallica and Nirvana. Yet the Chili's brand of sleazy LA funk rock is as powerful and intense as any grunge or metal and has also stood the test of time. Highlights are the slow-burning 'I Could Have Lied', the blistering title track and the iconic 'Under the Bridge'.

Most people know the Red Hot Chili Peppers as the guysa who wrote the classic 'Under the Bridge', well they are and this album encapsulates all the best moments of the Chili Peppers 15 year career in one magical album. From the moment of the first chord of 'The Power of Equality' to the end of the last note in 'They're Red Hot' you are delivered on a rollercoaster of emotion. The beautiful 'Under the Bridge' and the equally evocative 'I could've lied' show off the more mellow side of the band, whilst the frenetic bass lines in 'Give it Away' and 'Naked in the Rain' give Flea the chance to show to the world what a truly great bassist he is. There is not one song on the album which cannot be counted as a masterpiece in its own right and the curious mix of funk, rock, and rap delivers a fresh, upbeat and complete album. Anthony Kiedis' lyrics are spat forth as though his life depends on it, and the title track 'Blood Sugar Sex Magik' utilises every talent he has. John frusciant's guitaring is at times awe-inspiring, the solos in 'My Lovely Man' (a brilliant tribute to the Peppers original guitarist, Hillel Slovak who overdosed on heroin) and 'I could've Lied' are among his very best. If you don't have this album, go out now and buy it because it truly is one of the most complete album you will ever buy. And then you'll want the rest !!!
