This album is their first, and one of their finest. This is a very different Red Hot Chili Peppers than their present day music, but every bit as good. Twenty years after its release, it holds up powerfully.
If you have never heard "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes," you are missing one of the finest Hollywood/Southern California anthems ever written. Pop? Rap? Rock? I honestly think there is no way to properly classify this song, it's the perfect tune to announce the rival of the Chili Peppers, and pretty much personifies their offbeat charge into the music world.
You can find the abovementioned song on one of their "Best Of" albums, but the rest of the songs on this CD are too good to pass off. The mightiest tracks are 1 through 6, with "Buckle Down" and the overdrive-paced "Get Up and Jump" stealing the show. The diversity of the songs on these first six tracks is impressive.
The Chili Peppers were such a rush of fresh air when they hit the scene in 1984. I remember a plethora of heavy metal and new wave all over the airwaves & record stores; some good, lots bad. No new group, however, crashed the music scene that year quite like The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Pick up this CD and compare it to the playlists of the mid 1980s, and I bet the sheer contrast will show you what a cutting edge band The Red Hot Chili Peppers were when they hit the scene.
Give this album a chance, and I think you will find that the Red Hot Chili Peppers didn't get better with time: they started out great, and since then have tinkered with their musical style, all the while keeping their unmistakable Funky spirits in full force. Yes, The Red Hots still have "Baby Appeal!"

This record is great considering that it was (orginally) released (almost) 20 years before today when the radio waves are cursed by these ultra corporate/unoriginal rap/metal bands (my local alt/hard rock station actually played songs from this bands original four albums, now all they play is junk like "P.O.D.(posers obviously darnit)".
But this little underatted gem is 95% excelent(I'm not too hot with the simplistic"Police helicopter"). The top tracks in my mind would be "Green Heaven", with the best bass/guitar riff I've ever heard. The fast paced "Out In L.A." The chilling instrumental "Grand pappy du plenty." "Baby appeal" which could have easily made it on Freaky Styley, and "Buckle down", which I like for no reason That I can currently think of.
If that was not enough, if you buy the remaster(which you probably will end up with anyway, since it's easier to find) you get 5 demos added as Bonus tracks. Which range from the "Get up and jump" demo which is so off it's hilarious. To the "Green heaven" demo, which I think is better, with the exception of the scratchy beggining( But it's cool, and somewhat eerie how the bass line slowly fades in at the end of it). It also includes the demo for "What it is" from Out In L.A.(the album, not the song) Which consists of lyrical bits from songs like "Green Heaven", And "The Brothers Cup"(off Freaky Styley). The remaster also has better sound quality (obviously).
So to wrap things up, I would have to say that although it is not thier best, it is by far not thier worst ( it is still better than One Hot Minute, and it is much better than thier last release. So buy it, and enjoy.
HOP OUT!

As a thirty-something Gen-X lad, I'm one of the few who has been listening to the Chili Peppers since the mid 1980s. I say this not because I'm one of those insufferable gits who thinks his devotion to a band is more authentic because he was a fan before they became popular. Rather, I mention it to provide the context for my review of this album.

Younger folks who find this album puzzling because it bears no relation to the Chili Peppers they started listening to in the mid to late 90s or even in the 2000s need to understand that this album is not an anomaly or a one-off. It is the essence of what the Chili Peppers sounded like for a decade before today's twenty-somethings started hearing them on the radio and college-bar juke boxes in the 90s. And fortunately for those twenty-somethings, they were not around to witness the unrelentingly bland music scene that obtained in the mid-80s. Even punk had lost its edge by then and morphed into new-wave (Go-Gos turning from punk girls into a mainstream chick-band, Johnny Rotten reverting to John Lydon and fronting PIL, Mick Jones fronting Big Audio Dynamite, etc.). In a radio landscape filled with cheesy synth-pop and poof-haired makeup-wearing metal bands, hearing this and the next three Chili Peppers albums was veritably mind-blowing. Those of us who heard the Chili Peppers in the mid-80s finally understood what our parents felt like when they heard the Beatles or Led Zepplin for the first time.

"Hyperbole," one might be tempted to retort. "If the sound was so fresh, great and mind-blowing, then why did it not achieve the sort of commercial success that the Beatles and Led Zepplin did?" Quite simply, this album was a bit TOO far ahead of its time.
