It's hard to rate this album as it is so closely related to my teenage years. It's like the soundtrack of my youth. However, this is one the few albums I was into as a teen that I still like as of today. That's the Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the few bands that stand the test of time for me. As for this particular album, I don't think it's their best (that would be Blood Sugar Sex Magic or By The Way), but it is still a very strong one that helped cement the RHCP legacy.

The first half of the album has been played over and over on the radio and heard a million times, so it's kind of hard to be impartial to it. The second half however, is full of hidden gems like "I Like Dirt", "Purple Stain" and "This Velvet Glove".

This album is a really big step forward for the band's sound. I feel it's a bit overrated, but I love this album to death still.

A few good songs, but many forgettable ones. Not dreadful though.

The band reuniting with Frusciante after several years apart created some of their most inspired, best music.
