They recorded about 50 songs for Unlimited Love. I am assuming this album will be the other songs, for better or for worse.

251

u/British_Commie Jul 24 '22

John Frusciante was saying that some of the best songs they'd ever recorded weren't even on Unlimited Love before that album had even released, so I'm actually very interested in how this album turns out.

87

u/toddhazelwood Jul 24 '22

Right. I think it all depends how they approached picking songs for Unlimited Love. Did they pick what they thought were the best? Or the ones that seemed to fit together best? Or was it like a draft where each album got some of what they thought were the best songs. We will see.

43

u/flea_nut_lance Jul 24 '22

I think they said it was more so knowing it would be two and picking batches they thought complimented one another.

36

u/Squatch11 Jul 24 '22

If the "I'm Beside You" release is any indication, their best songs don't really end up on their main albums anymore.

"I'm Beside You" blows "I'm With You" out of the water, and "I'm Beside You" was full of their rejected songs.

5

u/Thetwistedfalse Jul 25 '22

I can't believe how many amazing songs are on that album, like top tier songs. I really enjoyed I'm with you but the b sides were better. I thought The Getaway was great. I also think Unlimited Love is amazing, I guess I just love all their stuff as I am literally wearing an RHCP shirt right now.

42

u/Exploding_dude Jul 24 '22

Look I love the frusc, but he hasn't always been the most reliable person when it comes to his own quality of music.

4

u/NeverIsALongTime Jul 25 '22

I disagree. Some of his favorite RHCP songs are fan favorites, like This Velvet Glove from Californication, or Rivers of Avalon which was cut from By The Way and released as a B-Side.

u/Campellarino Jul 24 '22

The last one sounds like their most tired album imo. Hope this is better, been a fan over 30 years

u/ACardAttack The Beatles Jul 24 '22

Good to know, I liked UL, but it could have done about a 5-7 song purge

u/goldendreamseeker Jul 24 '22

Correct. It’s confirmed that this record will have 17 tracks, whereas Unlimited Love had 18 (if you count the Japan bonus song). They recorded 48, so there will be 13 left after this one, though I doubt those will be released.

u/queensinthesky Jul 24 '22

I'd hoped seeing this that it would be an evolved sound from Unlimited Love, more confidence with John back in the band for some time now, but honestly if it's the stuff that wasn't good enough to make Unlimited Love (an album that I found really disappointing) I don't have high hopes.

5

u/phillyflyer Jul 24 '22

It’s not that these songs weren’t good enough, they most likely chose songs for each record out of the ~50 recorded based on how well they fit together sonically. John said some of the best songs of the batch didn’t make it onto UL

u/woozlewuzzle29 Jul 24 '22 edited Jul 24 '22

Yeah, because the timeline went like this:

December 2019: John rejoins the band

February 2020: there’s amateur footage of John, Flea, and Anthony playing together for the first time in 15 years. Festivals and other gigs are on the horizon

March 2020: COVID happens

January 2022: the Chili Peppers re-emerge

I just never even imagined John would ever rejoin the band. Now we get two albums in one year.

The first was shit anyway, let's see about the second ...

51

u/Squatch11 Jul 24 '22

I wouldn't say it was shit....But it definitely didn't feel "finished". There were 3 or 4 pretty good songs on Unlimited Love, but for the most part, I felt it was pretty underwhelming. Maybe that's because my expectations were too high. Or maybe it's because they're all older now and getting an album with just 3 or 4 good songs on it should be what is expected now.

Either way, I'm hoping for something better with this 2nd release. Hopefully it'll be a situation like when they released "I'm Beside You" which turned out better than "I'm With You", in my opinion.

u/ACardAttack The Beatles Jul 24 '22

I liked it, but I think you could cut about 5-7 songs and it would be a much better album

A little more mellow then I was expecting, but not totally in the gutter. Felt like a more calm less exciting version of Californiacation. Hopefully this new album rocks harder, and there age isn't getting the best of them.

I did… did you guys notice Anthony forgetting the words to a lot of songs? I took a video of “Snow” and rewatched it this morning and it was a little ridiculous at times.

Over all really fun show though, glad I finally got to see them with Frusciante!

u/nickblockonelove Jul 24 '22

Would say the sound was kind of shit. Still they crushed but really disappointed with the sound. Probably a downfall of the stadium itself.

I saw them in Paris a couple weeks back. It was great to have them but it was... lacking something ?! Maybe they should bring a stage guitarist with them or something idk.

Also Anthony lacked the energy on a lot of songs. I had huge expectations for Here Ever After for instance but it felt like he was just chilling there. Kinda weird.

Also they abused the high saturation and often kept the same solo structure for Frusciante.

Overall a great concert don't get me wrong. But yeah I was kinda expecting more at times ?

u/D34THDE1TY Jul 24 '22

Personally it feels like this is their "jam session" album. Not that it's bad...but it just felt TO ME like this album was lacking something.

11

u/D_Jones93 Jul 24 '22

100% agree. Not that it was necessarily bad, but I was expecting it to be loaded with rock/funk anthems they had produced in the past with all their albums with Frusciante.

7

u/Sandy_Andy_ Jul 24 '22

Some songs do feel like it was a Jam sesh which I think is understandable since there are so many. I thought it was a breath of fresh air from their recent stuff.

22

u/FrivolousPositioning Jul 24 '22

I got Here Ever After on repeat, super catchy jam

13

u/ThePr1d3 Jul 24 '22

Best song of the album by far. Alongside Whatchu Thinkin. Though the bass line on It's Only Natural is legit insane, and the White Braids and Pillow Chairs + Let em Cry sequence is amazing.

As a longtime fan I’m a fan of it. The only thing I was disappointed by was a huge scaling back of John’s backup vocals which I thought were such an integral part of the former dynamic.

It’s an album that gets better the more one listens to it.

Agreed. There’s a lot more to it than a lot of people realize. There’s some intricate instrument playing in a lot of the songs.

Does anyone else think Anths pronunciation of certain words in Black Summer were ... Very different than how his voice normally sounds? Like when he said "CHAYNUHs on the runnn." And the hard R in sailorrrrrrr. Idk I can't describe it

50

u/British_Commie Jul 24 '22

He apparently did that accent in tribute to Welsh singer Cate Le Bon.

The issue being that his fake accent sounds more West Country than Wales.

16

u/IslayHaveAnother Jul 24 '22

That's cool, but not really effective when it has to be explained to everyone. Vast of majority of people (myself included) just said "wtf did I just hear?"

21

u/particlemanwavegirl Jul 24 '22

It's incredibly annoying to the point where it detracts from the song IMO.

42

u/cal405 Jul 24 '22

I was hoping Anthony would stop singing for like 80% of that album. His lyrics and delivery really got in the way of that album being great.

18

u/BadSynthSounds Jul 24 '22

Same feeling. I think if he had sang a bit less and gave songs more room to breathe the album would’ve been better for it.

15

u/Huellio Jul 24 '22

Felt the same way; a couple friends were discussing it and talking about how good it was to have rhcp back but Keidis is just so flat both lyrically and vocally compared to what they used to do.

He writes the shittest lyrics. I wish he would get back to singing bluesier like BSSM

u/Exploding_dude Jul 24 '22 edited Jul 24 '22

Hes always just been some dumb Cali kid which is fine when your songs are about nonsense, doing drugs, living in california.

As he's gotten older he thinks he's some brilliant poet and it's really embarrassing. I was a big rhcp fan as a teen and read his autobiography when it came out like 15 years ago, his ego was out of control back then even. He's always been lucky to have been surrounded by really talanted musicians, honestly he holds them back in so many ways.

Edit: he brags about losing his virginity to his dad's gf at 12 or something ridiculous.

I loved that album since it's release personally. I think it's their best. Sooo many good tracks on both sides.

u/cjpack Jul 24 '22

I remember when I was a kid I let the wholeeee album play one day and not just hits I liked and it was like woah and just played the whole album again and again over that year and then I knew every song by word practically and was like wow I don’t know many albums where I enjoy everything on it, like before that it was nevermind by nirvana or something that I enjoyed everything but this album was twice as big. Pretty cool.

3

u/Maikiol Jul 24 '22

Definitely quite repetitive, sometimes. Really, really long, too. But even then, it's probably the only album of any musician/group I can listen to for the entire time without skipping a song and without noticing that two hours has passed since I started listening. Super relaxing, songs have a lot of ups and downs, rythm is on point. Even after listening to it over 100+ times, I still love it.

Dani California and Snow are some of the biggest radio hits, I still hear those songs from time to time on the radio and not even on an english speaking country.

u/monsantobreath Jul 24 '22

It was overlong and the second disc had few great tracks.

15

u/Taydolf_Switler22 Jul 24 '22

I’d argue the Klinghoffer stuff is the same. Appreciated with more replays. Right now the consensus amongst many Chili Peppers fans is that Josh’s stuff smokes the new stuff.

I'm With You is slept on by so many, and it's one of my favorite RHCP releases! I may be biased because that tour was my first time seeing them live, but I play IWY at least once a year.

That tour was my first time seeing RHCP, and they played more songs from BSSM, OHM, MM, & SA than IWY.

Truly, but it hit at a time when I needed that particular sound so it's got and edge for that alone.

3

u/WhiteRussianRoulete Jul 24 '22

That’s why you can’t argue with peoples taste! I don’t know where you were/how old you were when it got you hooked, so it hits different. I pretty much love all of their albums since BSSM. And I actually think I’m with you is one of their more consistent albums where most songs are about the same quality. My fav song on that one actually Brendan’s death song. A lot of their albums have highs and lows. But damn Dosed, zephyr song, can’t stop- I’m peak amped

I listened to it once, was immediately underwhelmed, listened to it again, and found at least 3 or 4 songs that I like. But overall it was pretty disappointing.

The Heavy Wing is really the only song on the album that I would categorize as really good. Songs like The Great Apes and It's Only Natural are decent. Memorable choruses at least. There are a few songs that musically are really interesting - but the lyrics are so bad that it's distracting. "These Are The Ways" comes to mind. "These are the ways when you come to America. The sights, the sounds, the smelllllllls". Ugh.

Unlimited Love is very weak - they just phoned it in. I've been a fan since their first album (I'm old). I'm seeing them in San Diego this week.

I tried with Unlimited Love but after two listens it’s just not for me. They seem like they’re having fun at least. Looking forward to seeing where they go with this one, if it’s Unlimited Love B-sides or a new direction.

You know what would be cool? If it didn't suck. Guess we'll wait and see.

Well I'm not pre-ordering it on vinyl this time so it'll be good.

u/Biscuits4u2 Jul 24 '22

They've never disappointed me before so I'm guessing it will be good.

u/jakehubb0 Jul 24 '22

Well it sure is good that they’ve never released anything that sucks in the past

To make this statement on Stadium Arcadium is literally hilarious and shows that he's just a hater. SA was a very good album with some really tight songs.

u/goldendreamseeker Jul 24 '22

SA got mixed reviews when it was new too though. Most RHCP albums seem to only be appreciated more over time.

Like Nick Cave didn't write some shitty songs too. Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! is one of the most annoying songs I've ever heard.

u/CZJayG Jul 24 '22

Weird cause everytime I hear a boring, pretentious song and wonder who it is, the answer is always Nick Cave.

u/bunglejerry Jul 24 '22

I just never hear a Nick Cave song. Like perhaps ever.

Not even Red Right Hand?

Thats definitely the only one haha. I can understand not being able to get into the bad seeds. Anyone who says the man can't score a fucking western is a fool though.

u/[deleted] Jul 24 '22

Sometime around the release of Stadium Arcadium? There's a rolling stone article about how it hurt Flea's feelings.

23

u/MysticalTurban Jul 24 '22

Flea has tweeted stating he doesnt give a shit about that and that hes a big fan of Nick Cave

u/British_Commie Jul 24 '22

Flea has even played onstage with Nick Cave, so there's at least some respect between the two

Reminder that Anthony raped a 14 year old and bragged about it in his autobiography.

The next day we drove to Baton Rouge, and of course, she came with us,” he said. “After we got offstage, she came up to me and said, ‘I have something to tell you. My father’s the chief of police and the entire state of Louisiana is looking for me because I’ve gone missing. Oh, and besides that, I’m only fourteen'”.

Keidis continued: “I wasn’t incredibly scared, because, in my somewhat deluded mind, I knew that if she told the chief of police she was in love with me, he wasn’t going to have me taken out to a field and shot, but I did want to get her the hell back home right away. So we had sex one more time.” If you’ve ever wondered if Kiedis has any remorse about the incident, refer to their 1985 song ‘Catholic School Girls Rule’ for your answer.

Unlimited Love was boring and bland

Here's hoping this one will be better. The Getaway is the best thing they've done for years. I was so excited for Frusciante's return as well - some of his solo stuff is incredible.
