This is probably one of the most unique rock albums I have come across. It feels as if their aren't enough mainstream bands experimenting out there, but RHCP seems not to care and do it their own way. Blood Sugar Sex Magik, their second or third album (I keep forgetting), is one of their longest albums, and is produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, and Engineered by the less famous (but still widely creative) Brendan Obrian (Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, etc.). This album surely goes into much of the funk and punk realm, going between the two and many other genres and creating their own form of music-believe me, when you hear any one of these songs, you'll know it's RHCP. I don't think their's much to say about this album, because their isn't really anything wrong with it; the music kicks butt, and even the outside artwork reflects the band and their brilliant artistic side. But I think out of all the songs on this album, the one that stands as the greatest is 'Under The Bridge', a song about trying to make things better when you are down, I think. But RHCP would never make an album as legendary as this, even if the next ones might have made more money.

1. The Power Of Equality 2. If You Have To Ask 3. Breaking The Girl 4. Funky Monks 5. Suck My Kiss 6. I Could Have Lied 7. Mellowship Slinky In Bmajor 8. The Righteous and the Wicked 9. Give It Away 10. Blood Sugar Sex Magik 11. Under The Bridge 12. Naked In The Rain 13. Spache Rose Peacock 14. The Greeting Song 15. My Lovely Man 16. Sir Psycho Sexy 17. They're Red Hot

This album shows every side to RHCP, at least almost all. Their musicful art, anyway, and their energy. This album is a great album no matter what, through and through. The only problem is that will some people like it? Some songs might sound strange to people not familiar with their sound, so casual music listeners beware. Everyone else, go out and buy it. Or download it from Napster.
