Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm with you Reveiw

I have been waiting a long time for this new Red Hot Chili Peppers album. I absolutely loved Stadium Arcadium. RHCP has always had what I would call a "beachy" or "summery" sound, and Stadium Arcadium didn't disappoint. You would think with it being a 2 disc set, that there would be a lot of fluff, or filler songs, but there wasn't it had a great flow. The new album I'm here with you is a little different. It is slower, or more mellow. There are a few upbeat songs, but not enough more my liking. I believe this has a lot to do with John Frusciante the guitar player leaving the band. He had been with them since Californication in 1999, and was the original guitar player for the frist few albums. I feel like they had the perfect synergy going and that is what made Stadium Arcadium so good. So maybe in a few years if the new guy sticks around they will get it back, but so far not so good. Honestly i can only give this about 2.5 stars out of 5. The songs just aren't that memorable, and the don't have what I call "character". I feel like they were playing it a little safe due to having a new guitar player. Let them go on tour for a while and maybe next time we will get something a little better.

Top songs: Factory of Faith, the radio single The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie, and the closing song Dance, Dance Dance.


  1. Disappointing. I was hoping it'd really rock. :-(

  2. Yuppers... I'll give you a copy when I get back and you can judge for yourself. It's not terrible, but it doesn't rock like stadium arcadium.
