The title track, "Desecration Smile," and "She Looks To Me" finds them venturing further into laid back pop ballad territory, while the tricky rhythms of "Dani California," "Charlie," and "So Much I" eventually kick into familiar top gear on the pop-savvy "Tell Me Baby" and hip-hop seasoned "Storm in a Teacup." It's not that there's a paucity of musical adventure here ("If" and "Animal Bar" finds them wafting into Floydish neo-psychedelia while "Make You Feel Better" seems to channel no less than Joe Jackson) but that it's delivered with a subtlety--and dare we say it?--tasteful musical restraint that's a stark contrast to the band's early, overly overt nature. There's perhaps too much mid-tempo simmering and reflection going on; like most double-albums it could be focused into a much more compelling single disc. But that seems largely beside the Peppers' hooks-over-histrionics point here: an unlikely record to kick back to, and one that both challenges assumptions and eases the band into middle age with an oft languorous, if undeniably savory groove. --Jerry McCulley
When I first listened to this album, I was hooked. Every song is from each other and is very relative. I really wnjoy Disc 1. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Brilliant Bob

Actually, I think they are both the same person; it's just that no one has figured it out yet. I think there's a whole Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus type thing going on here.

|Dani California is great but seems familiar.||
the main riff in the solo is ripped directly from hendrix's foxy lady. John listened to nothin but hendrix before recoring the cd. But of course, musicians all 'borrow' from each other, and he did it with his own style.

|World wide suicide or Dani California..||
"Dani California" is definetly better. I can't understand anything Ed says during "Suicide", the lyrics are almost totally inaudible. Which is a shame, given what he's actually saying. The song just seems kinda basic. There is a lot more going on, musically in 'Dani.' The... Read More

I think it's an awesome song. I especially like the guitar riff at the end. It makes me all the more excited to hear the rest of their album.
