  RHCP greatness again.

| | See all TheRockRHCP's reviews (10)

The chili peppers do not disappoint with this long awaited new album.
With new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer there is a differing style to this album, not that you'd expect any different from a new RHCP album. Always unique and different in their own way.
The new album sees Flea take control with his legendary bass skills, as Josh provides a suttle, harmonic and awesome guitar style. Chad and Anthony bring the classic RHCP vibe.
Overall, this album provides classic RHCP style songs and brand new sounding material which is what you always look for in a new album.

Brilliant listen. Bargain.

A lot of Doubt surronded the release of this album. Could the Chili's recapture that iconic sound without Frusicante? Well new guitarist Kinghoffler stepped up to the mark well. Okay so the album isnt as good as 'By The Way' or 'Californication' but never the less 'I'm With You' is a decent album. Good mix from the upbeat 'Look Around' to the slower more poignant 'Brendan's death song' this song proves the chili's were never a one trick pony and this album returns the chili peppers back to the top of Rock music. Download Police Station and Factory Of Faith.

  OK but not KO!

Good record and a must buy for every fan. Lacks occasionally some punch I've used to hear. Guitarist Josh should've stepped up a little bit. Now he's weaving adorably the harmonical background but more bleeding heart to soloing! I hope this is a transition to the next record Josh bringing himself up real strong. :-)

  They sound awesome :)

All the songs are good and I still love RHCP but there is a distinct lack of slap bass which I miss dearly. These songs are far more mellow then ever before even more so than By The Way.

  Good Old Chilis

Brilliant album. Every song on it is great, if you weren't sure on them with john leaving, don't worry they're still great.

If you listen to this brilliant cd 4 or 5 times constantly you will clearly here that the Chili's have spent a lot of time enhancing their music on this album with clever instrumental background chords which you will only pick up the more you listen to the whole CD. Love it.

  Dissapointing

As a long serving RHCP fan i was really looking forward to this album and could'nt wait to buy it.
However, i just can't warm to it, there is something missing. There is none of the powerful (go for it) songs on there, no attitude and no John Frusciante for sure.
I ask any chilli peppers fan to listen to the previous albums and compare this to them.
You will realise it does'nt touch em!
I feel i have been very generous giving this album 3 stars, probably because i am a fan....
Gutted!!!

  Should not have doubted them!

I must admit I was not sure about the Red Hot Chilli Peppers would sound after John Frusciante leaving but the answer to my ears is great. It seems the others have raised their game with some great songs, mainly driven by Flea's intricate bass work and Chad's increasingly complex drumming. The new member Josh Klinghoffer plays in a similar style to Frusciante (he actually featured on his last solo album) but brings his own energy and creativity as well as providing backing vocals to Andrews vocals. This album gets better the more times I hear it with stand-out tracks Monarchy of Roses, Look Around, Goodbye Hooray and the heart felt Brendan's Death Song. More melodic than there earlier albums but still with a sense of fun a polished effort from a band growing up but not necessarily maturing!
