Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: I'm With You (Audio CD)
I have had the chance to hear this record online before the release, but I waited, like in the old days.
Finally it's here... I'm not for the long-ass, track by track BS pundit reviews - hearing a song is worth more than a million words. And it is different for the individual listener(S)
Overall, it's a new chapter with the Pepps, it's a slightly different sound, the guitars are cautious, the bass is in your face, there are many familiar Anthony vocal lines and maybe with this it could have been less predictable but he is part of the RHCP DNA without him there is no band
The drums are solid as you would expect from Dr. Smith...There are some new and interesting elements that we have not heard on other CHIlli records production - wise.
it is with this record that the Peppers will find what it is that they are looking for on the their next album, after having toured and lived together, but the big BUT is Rubin. They need a new produced from now on. Sorry Rick.
I Love the Peppers, I'd see them on the new tour to hear a new twist on the classics too. Let's just hope that no one gets back into the drug thing
