I have always been a huge Chilis fan. I have been an even bigger John Frusciante fan. From the first time I heard him play guitar when I was a kid, to watching him live on stage standing two feet away while he played under the bridge, I have loved the man. He's the reason I picked up a guitar for the first time and has been a consistently huge influence on my life.
So the first time he left the band I was devastated, when Dave Navarro took over I disowned the Chilis and focused on John's solo career. The energy in one hot minute was all wrong; it didn't feel like the Chilis to me. Or maybe it did and I was just too stubborn to see. Either way I couldn't stand that album so I moved on to other artists and music.
Don't get me wrong though I love the other three band members too, it's just without John 'One Hot Minute' just didn't feel right to me. I have friends who agree with me and friends who thing that is their best album to date. Oh well.
When Californication came and with it the return of John I was elated. I listened to that CD until it burned out, then I bought two more. I simply couldn't get enough. The next two were equally as amazing and cemented the Chilis once again as my all time favourite band. I was impatient when they announced a hiatus but could understand it. They had been churning out quality music non stop for years.Read more ›
Don't let that trick you into purchasing this. This is a terrible master. It was done by Vlado Meller, who's mastered every Chili Pepper's album since 1999's 'Californication'. All of which have suffered from some of the worst mastering of all time. They're so loud they're clipped into the red. So good luck hearing any clarity or definition in his mastering through the waves of digital distortions shredding your ear drums.
Clearly by 2006, John Frusciante (he seems to have developed an increased interest in sound quality as years have progressed, using analog to record his solo ventures and mastering his 2009 solo album 'The Empyrean' very dynamically, which was a far cry from his Chili Pepper's world) had enough and Steve Hoffman was hired to master John's swan song, 'Stadium Arcadium' for vinyl. Steve Hoffman did a great job and the vinyl sounds rich and detailed, with lots of definition between instruments and most importantly the bass isn't drowned out in waves of static digital distortions.
But now with John gone, Warner Music have just resorted to having the lame, the deaf, the terrible, the anti music himself, Vlado Meller, make a vinyl master of this album to cash in on the vinyl sales boom.
What you're presented with when you drop the needle onto the grooves of this vinyl is very treble heavy thin sound, with no definition, very sharp, muddy and brittle sounding, with mostly inaudible bass, which in my opinion is sacrilegious considering the talents of Flea. It's not a pleasant listen and hurts your ears more than the commercially released loudness war CD.
I bought this vinyl after downloading a FLAC vinyl rip of a torrent site.Read more ›
This is the old RHCP spirit. But this new album makes me feel a little sick to the stomach. So many catchy, radio-friendly tunes scrunched into one record it will make me vomit. Disco Beats? Disco Beats!!!!! are you kidding me?
Chorus line hooks that are so blatantly obvious that you would think they are trying to catch a whale of a pop fish its ridiculous, We should change the bands name to match their new sound- instead of RHCP it should be M.S.C.P ( mildly spicy chilli Peppers). or Radio Hosts' Chilli Poppers. Lol. or in my opinion For cryin' out Loud. I hope not too many people buy this record so as not to encourage the boys to continue down this POP path. Yo, Chilli's, whatcha doin? I know you lost your Brotha in music Mr. Frusciante, but I hope Y'all throw this record away and do not even tour behind it, Just get back to your roots, man! take a break ,regroup, why dont ya get Dave Navarro back in the band, he was Badass. Anyhow, I will now go and listen to By the Way or Stadium or better yet Blood Sugar Mellowship fellowship and wait for the Band to get back to the Funk!

Hello, the cd that you have received is the original album but is made in Argentina, don´t you worry, now a days the newest releases made in Argentina are equal in quality as the european edition or US edition. The ifpi sticker means that is original and not a fake cd.

not me, what kind of cd player are you using? Car, home, comp? This sometimes happens when the lens is dirty if the disc is scratch-free. You might want to invest in a disc cleaner. They are amazing!
