this really is terrible. i hold niandre lades as one of the greatests albums slong with his work on BSSM and Californication. i would love to like ANYTHING he did after that and have spent years hoping it would grow on me. whats sad about it is the guy had some shining moments on by the way and stadium arcadium that made me think he didnt forget what music was and why we humans enjoy it. i must agree with another reviewer that he seems to jave succombed to the identity of a self important hipster who wants recognition whether he puts out crap or not. either that or he is running away from success like he did after BSSM but this time using crappy music to divert fame as opposed to shooting drugs.


Been listening to this since the night of its release. every now and then I'll amuse myself by checking up on the comments/reviews. Either 5 or 1...

That maybe some people missed.

To paraphrase a Brian Eno quote I just read earlier on the back of the 'discreet music' lp: "preferredMaking plans to executing them."

The thought process behind what went into this is what kept me coming back for awhile. Or how it just made me think in general While at the same time absorbing it like I would any other piece of music.
People are perhaps calling it 'garbage' or 'inaccessible' for a basic misunderstanding of the intentions from the artist. Which isn't a crime by any means. But to disregard such

It's like staring into an electrical storm outlining 'Mitchell Crew'

I'm glad we live in a world where a 15year old in a rural town can put this on and get that shot-from-the-source kick.

That same world is also very technologically advanced, with its own rhythms that can appear disorienting or even passionate at that first quick glance. Which moving at the pace that it does... Is really the only glance you get.

Like this album.

Forget RHCP

John is on another level. Always prefer solo John to RHCP. Listen and have an open mind.

Guitarist John Frusciante has experienced both colossal highs and death-defying lows in both his musical career and personal life. Born in 1970 and raised in California, Frusciante dropped out of high school when guitar playing and rock music took hold of the up-and-coming musician/songwriter. Embracing both the unpredictable side of rock (Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, King Crimson, Funkadelic) and punk (the Germs, Black Flag), Frusciante created his own guitar style -- combining both technical skill with...
