Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
Fans of John Frusciante's solo albums might easily confuse the Automatic Writing albums as being an extension of his 2004-2005 solo work, but AW II is distinctly different. Heavier and more groove-based, the album approaches hard rock at times. The emotions are thick, brooding, and heavy throughout. Klinghoffer shows what he's truly capable of on the drum kit here, setting an expressive standard for the rythym section on every song. Frusciante demonstrates his vocal power with an raw, aching performance, and very little falsetto.

Joe Lally, the basist, explained their jam-based writing process in a 2008 interview: "The songs would be initiated by me settling into a bass line... while the bass line was forming, Josh would be playing and John would start to do something.... with a few minutes with a beat, I'd just keep going. There were no thoughts to it being the end product, a recording..."

Fans of Dot Hacker will be pleased to hear Josh Klinghoffer's lead vocals on "The Empty's Response". If you like dark, emotional rock, and jam-band grooves, then this album is for you!
