More soul food.
on 19 June 2016
I've owned this album since it's release,& yes I'm a big fan of Rhcp, so feel compelled to stick up for them. I'm with you was always gonna be criticised,just like one hot minute was,because of the absence of John frusciante. Yep, John is a very talented guy(check out his solo stuff, genius stuff), but he wasn't necessarily the back bone of the band.imagine Rhcp without Anthony,now that would be crazy.
And on to the album, personally I think I'm with you is a excellent piece,a very strong selection of songs. Yeah,we have some that sound similar (sort of) to past Rhcp songs(but isn't that what we love about them?),and some that still break new ground even after all these years.and what's consistent about them is meaningful music,there is no filler here & I think it's better then one hot minute.check it out,but not if your just after criticising a great band that's lost a great guitarist.life goes on.
