Higher Ground is awesome, the rest of the album is rock solid.

This where they became a force in the music world. Their energy and original sound was evident throughout. I love the use of sweet child of mine riff on punk rock classic and how Pretty Little Ditty was sampled later on.

One of my favourite Red Hot Chili Peppers albums. Mothers milk, the first LP to feature the 'classic' Chili's line up, is probably the most 'metal' sounding of their LP's. Released at the height of the metal era, it works on that score, but certainly is funky too. Best tracks are, good time boys, knock me down, and, taste the pain. A great party album.

Any Pepper album with Frusciante is better than an album without. So Mother's Milk lands 5th in their catalogue for me. This is a band still figuring out their identity with the wrong producer that wants their sound heavier than it should be.

This album hits and misses as they search for what they want their band to be but promise is all over this considering what is to come.

Frusciante shreds here more than other albums, a nice change of pace.

But it doesn't hold a candle to their four best records

The bass work on stone cold bush is absolutely amazing. The beginning of RHCP awesomeness. John and Chad might as well be a restart for this band, something just clicks so much better and is amazing. While some of it might be considered filler, for the Chili Peppers it isn't, it is just having fun.

Picked this up after BloodSugar, which I believe helped me enjoy it moreso, solid record.

Alright, this is where things really started getting interesting. Frusciante and Smith are in and the band is really starting to get it. There are a lot of good songs here.
