The bad news is, the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album sucks ten tons of mummified donkey cock. Jesus christ, what HAPPENED to these guys? Freakey Styley, Uplift Mofo Party Plan...perverted, funkified genius. Mother's Milk, Blood Sugar Sex Magik...two of the best records of the 90's. I can even stand OHM and Californication. But this...this sounds like the music they play over the loudspeaker at JC Penney's. Total soccer mom rock. I'll be surprised if Anthony Kiedis isn't tapped to fill Star Jones' spot on The View.
Yet another sign of the Apocalypse, kiddies. Mark my words.
