Red Hot Chili Peppers- I’m With You (Album Review)

September 3, 2011

Micro Album Review

 

Released August 29, 2011 (Warner Bros.)

I’m With You is an eclectic psychedelic hour-long journey into the new chapter of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ book. After guitarist John Frusciante’s departure in December 2009, Josh Klinghoffer stepped in as a replacement. In a recent Rolling Stone magazine interview, Kiedis commented that the Peppers was a ‘new band;’ it couldn’t had been further from the truth. With the new batch of songs is a familiar sound, but churned out and produced in a different vein. Ironically, the first Chili Peppers album without Frusciante since the ‘90s sounds more like one of his solo albums than the Chili Peppers albums including him. I’m With You is the Chili Peppers grown up and matured and comfortably evolving into a mind-blowing progressive rock band. This is easily the band’s best album since Californication (and that’s saying a lot because By The Way was really good too).
