Awwwww you gotta love the Chillis, from the Godawful "Mummy, where's Daddy" from their first album, to Mr. Keidis looking like Princess Leiah (yes I know I probably spelt it wrong) in the video to "Breaking the Girl". Blood Sugar Sex Magik was the album that made the Chillis look all grown up and professional, and the follow up, One Hot Minute, is a masterpiece. I don't care who was playing guitar, who was singing what or writing whatever, from first to last track this is a damn fine album. It starts with Warped, a song that kicks the idea of time signatures firmly in the you-know-where, and incredibly it gets better from there. Aeroplane (despite it's disturbing video) shows what can be done with a bass guitar, My Friends shows off how well the Chillis have matured since their 80's roots, and probably the best song on the album, nay, of all time, Shallow be Thy Game, is an anthem, simple as that. Probably the best thing about this album is that it makes you feel happy. The music isn't necessarily all feel good stuff, but it leaves you feeling as though you have spent your time wisely listening to it.
