Its Californication for me, they were trying too hard in the early days, when they finally stripped everything back thats when they made their best music

As good as RHCP's always been, I agree, it wasn't until they got older and settled down a bit that they started making their very best stuff. Again, to clarify, they were always good, but when they took it down a notch and focused more on melody and groove, that's when they became great. And I agree, Californication is a great case in point. Look at all the moody, melodic pieces on that album – the title track, Scar Tissue, Otherside, Roadtrippin'. Them's some mighty good listenin'.

Even people who don't like RHCP like those songs. Years ago I tried introducing my kid's mom to RHCP and she couldn't stand them, didn't like how Kiedis was always scatting and zing-dong-danging. But once I played her the first tracks off Californication, she was sold.

Scar Tissue is beautiful and Otherside as well.
RHCP can be sold to anyone because the energy they give off as well you can feel through their music. it was the same for my mum at one point she could not stand kiedes voice and i played her my favourite song Wet Sand and she was sold.
When they first started it was hell and fun fact they have actually wrote off everything before Mothers Milk adn the story behind it is a book and a half. but everytime i hear Venice Queen off By The Way i go crazy because its my favourite album and they will always put out great music because they are sooo good at whaat they do but when they took it down a bit they became amazing. When they first started Anthony Kiedis was to screwed up in the first place and it got worse before they became what they are now
Around The World took a little bit to learn but it was very fun to play

Has anyone of you listened to the solo stuff of John Frusciante? I really like his albums Shadows collide with people and The Empyrean
