iTunes Review

An alt-rock institution finds sure footing and fresh starts with producer Danger Mouse. For a big-ticket band, the Chili Peppers remain appealingly stripped-down, mixing their lean, punky approach with disco (“Go Robot”), golden-age hip-hop (“The Getaway”), psychedelia (“This Ticonderoga,” “Detroit”), and slow-burning funk (the Elton John-featuring “Sick Love”). As with the rest of the band’s post-Californication phase, the sound remains rhythmic (credit the skeleton-key wrecking crew of Flea and drummer Chad Smith) but the mood is melancholic, introverted, and a little lovelorn—the reflections of party boys reckoning the bittersweetness of middle age.

Customer Reviews

It's growing on me -- fast.

I have a bad habit of passing judgment all too quickly when it comes to music. When I first had a listen to the entire album, I was like, "What happened to them?" Thought it was a little on the light side for a Peppers album (been listening to them since the late 80s). But the more I listen, the more it's seriously growing on me.
At the moment, Encore is hittin me pretty hard a the moment for some reason. Absolutely love it. The best song on the album so far, for me.

Beautiful Album

This album blew me away. Though definitely a different direction from previous albums, this album has bits of the old, classic RHCP, and a new beautiful sound. Will be listening to this album on repeat for a long while.

Few rock groups of the '80s broke down as many musical barriers and were as original as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Creating an intoxicating new musical style by combining funk and punk rock together (with an explosive stage show to boot), the Chili Peppers spawned a slew of imitators in their wake, but still managed to be the leaders of the pack by the dawn of the 21st century. The roots of the band lay in a friendship forged by three school chums, Anthony Kiedis, Michael Balzary, and Hillel Slovak,...
