EDITORS’ NOTES

After surviving membership changes and battles with addiction, the Red Hot Chili Peppers delivered Californication, an album that showed them to be both resilient and contemplative. The funk-fuelled party rock that made their name slaps harder than ever on "Around the World" (which features Flea's bass at its wiggliest) and the furious "Get On Top", but the group spends much of the LP looking inward. On ballads such as "Savior" and "Porcelain", Anthony Kiedis and returning guitarist John Frusciante blend their vocals so delicately they could almost float away.
