Single Review: Red Hot Chili Peppers- The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie

July 18, 2011

First things first, I hated Stadium Arcadium by RHCP.  By the Way was 50% good and Californiacation was decent, but I kind of lost respect for it once I found out they forced Mr. Bungle to change the name of their album(Anthony Keidis and Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction are two of the most under rated dicks in rock and roll history).

Anyway, this song has a solid bass line provided by Flea and it is mixed well with the very simple drumming.  The new guitarist sounds like Frusciante during the Stadium Arcadium era.  Combine that with Kiedis’s vocals not evolving from the last album and you get an all right song.  The verses, bridge and coda make this song repeatable.  The chorus is lack luster and unoriginal.

6/10.   Flea and Chad Smith have to carry this group more. Do people even make albums like BSSM anymore?
