RHCP 1984-2002

M. J. Kennett "Everthing is healing nicely."
 
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Red Hot Chili Peppers
"An inauspacious debut album. The songs follow exactly the same pattern, the songwriting isn't great and the production is a mess, but it's a rather enjoyable record - an oxymoron."
Freaky Styley
Freaky Styley
"More of the same; poor (yet funkier) production values, poor songwriting and familiar song patterns, except executed in an even poorer fashion. A waste of time."
The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
"The Red Hot Chili Peppers finally get the formula right; good songs, good production and an incredibly fun listen. There are still brief dalliances with uselessness ocassionally, however."
Mother's Milk
Mother's Milk
"The band gain Chad Smith and John Frusciante and gain confidence. The band has improved no end which results in some classic material. Sadly, there are still some pointless ditties on here."
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
"The Red Hot Chili Peppers' breakthrough album. Only one (yes ONE) pointless song to be found, great production courtesy of Rick Rubin and a sizeable chunk of their best material in just one place."
What Hits!?
What Hits!?
"A decent stop-gap release, featuring some of the band's best 80's material. Worthless if you have all their 80's output already, but it's a good introduction to their earlier work for new fans."
Out In L.A.
Out In L.A.
"An execrable mish-mash of obscure 80's demos, remixes and outtakes. Avoid."
One Hot Minute [U.S. Version]
One Hot Minute [U.S. Version]
"The four year in the making follow up to BloodSugarSexMagik is a lot less funky. Their heaviest album by miles (mainly thanks to Navarro), but a vastly underrated album."
Californication
Californication
"Another four year in the making album. Rubin produces and Frusciante is back at the helm, making Californication a funk oddysey in the key of BloodSugarSexMagik."
By the Way
By the Way
"RHCP shift gears. Welcome blasts of funk here and there, but By The Way is mellow and introspective when compared to their earlier material. A good album and interesting progression."
