red hot chili peppers - blood sugar sex magik

This may be one of the best albums of all time. There is seriously not one song on the whole damn thing that I don't pretty much love. and I just love the peps in general.

I agree.

It's rare for an entire album to be so solid.

Even if Under The Bridge was way overplayed.

I missed the era when Under The Bridge was played on the radio all the time (I don't think I could have been older than 10 and therefore was most definitely listening to your teen poppy beats ) because every time it comes on now a days I get pretty pumped. I think most of my favorite rhcp songs come from this album - Funky Monks, Mellowship Slinky in B major & Give it Away being the top 3.

Darn good record and a great snapshot of a band in transition. The album kind of captured the Peppers right in that sweet spot between leaving behind the psycho funk sound of 80's and adopting the much more mainstream and radio friendly sound they have today.

Other then Under the Bridge, which while well written was so overplayed I just can't enjoy it anymore, the album is about as solid top to bottom as an album can get. Good stuff.

You know, I LOVED this album when it first came out. I owned it even before the campus radio station had a copy, and I loaned it out to a few other DJ's that heard it on my show. Then it started to break BIG and the Peppers all of a sudden were everywhere. And they started to cover songs that they had no business covering, trying to recapture "Mothers Milk", I think. Then John Frusciante left for the first time, and I haven't been able to listen to them since.

I still like this album, but I look at it as the last thing that the band that had such a great sense of humor and took nothing seriously did. Everything that followed, with only a couple of exceptions, just paled in comparison to the stuff in the 80's and the very early 90's.

Funny, my experience is much the same as Jazz. This was the last Red Hot Chili Pepper's album that I listened to with any seriousness. I much preferred their earlier stuff.

Sir Psycho Sexy is the best. Also love I Could Have Lied, Suck My Kiss and Breaking the Girl

Give it Away is the only song I can't stand. Terrible.
