Red Hot Chili Peppers – One Hot Minute

Red Hot Chili Peppers - One Hot MinuteThis is one of those rare albums of which I like approximately half, and can’t stand the other half. Like a lot of people who don’t delve too deep into the hard rock scene, my first exposure to the Chilis was the atypical ballad “Under The Bridge” in 1991, but I warmed to some of their other songs, even the oddball pseudo-rap “Take It Away”. Which brings us to this album. Why did I get it? Because I love “Aeroplane” – what a wild song! But that’s not the only good song on this album. Also check 3 out of 4out “Walkabout” and my new favorite Chilis tune, “My Friends”. It seems like every other track on this album appeals to me, but the alternating ones are surefire skip material. Which sums up my approach to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in general.
