What Beinhorn did was stand out of the band's way, and their explosiveness could cut loose. Cuts like "Fight Like a Brave", the brief "Sweaty Skinny Man" and guitar feature "Walkin' On Down the Road" display a band in full flight-- their funk/punk/rap/metal blend fully realized. Perhaps more important was the band's ability to use what they learned from both Gill (the clinically-explosive "Me and My Friends") and Clinton (tight groove of "Funky Crime") and to develop new ideas an sounds (their first real ballad in "Behind the Sun"). The Peppers were finally poised to conquer the world.
This reissue is remastered with unnervingly superb sound-- the Chili Peppers remasters really put the records way in your face and augments the album with two instrumental demos (which are largely unessential). Included in the liner notes is an essay by Flea discussing the album, sessions, and this time in the band's career.
This would, unfortunately, be the last album this band would do-- guitarist Hillel Slovak died of a heroin overdose, and a distraught Jack Irons quick the band, leaving Kiedis and Flea, as they were in 1984, holding the bag by themselves. The Chili Peppers that would re-emerge would be a quite different band. This record is the only real example of what the Kiedis/Slovak/Flea/Irons lineup had to offer. Recommended.
If you like the Peppers then this is a must buy. I'd say this is their 3rd or 4th best LP. Top tracks are Fight Like A Brave, Me and My Friends, Backwoods, Behind the Sun, Subterranean Homesick Blues, and Walkin' On Down the Road. If I could it would get a 9/10.

Awesome classic Peppers. That's pretty much it. The shipping was also impressive, as I received it within 2 or 3 days (can't remember) and I live in a very remote area. Read morePublished on April 7, 2014 by Pumpernickel Jones
The most motley album of RHCP. All over the place funk and rock. Fight Like a Brave is a lyrical party, as is Backwoods and No Chump. Read morePublished on April 1, 2014 by Cathy
