RHCP - Mothers Milk

It's easy to forget just how much fun these guys were in the early days...

 

Don't think I've ever listened to that one.. if that has the Stevie Wonder cover is pretty much the only track from the album I've heard?

A fantastic recommendation from Soundfan is this. Still available on clear vinyl for peanuts, its a great pressing with good SQ. The music has a dreamy, melancholy feel with some moments of real beauty. Highly recommended

It is the one with Higher Ground, yeah. I struggled with Freaky Styley but from there through to One Hot Minute, I don't think they put a foot wrong really. One Hot Minute was a bit of a departure from that raw, aggressive funk - but was a trip well worth taking, I think. Beyond One Hot Minute... Well, you can have 'em.

Cool, never really worked back after Sex Magik which I should, or forwards after Californication, you didn't like Californication?

 

Giving this a spin now..

Very underrated album!

 

If it weren't for the previous classic BSSM, then this album would have been rated more highly.

 

Always a shame when albums are 'compared' to classics and not listened to 'in their own right'! A LOT of fans miss out on gold!

I've always thought Californication marked the end of them creatively as a band. They were no longer a band but had become a product that worked to formula. I found it to be nothing much more over produced gimmickry.

Of course, millions the world over would disagree with that opinion so just take it for what it is. ;)

The Keidis bio 'Scar Tissue' is a great read btw.

+1.  but I would take it back to One Hot Minute.

 

  Mothers milk and BSSM are classics, however that nothing new or creative.

Looking through the list it should be "Tamest 100" Looks like their whole blecking album got on the list!

In case I wasn't clear, Californication was a big thumbs down for me... ;)

 

:D

 

Don't worry, I got that loud & clear lol

 

I liked it though, like they had matured into their music/skin a bit?? :shrugs:

 

Edit: I had originally written in that Californication post felt it was a "companion piece" to BSSM, and yeah as you've both said wasn't too original, and to their formula, but I still liked it.

 

+1.  but I would take it back to One Hot Minute.

Two votes so definitely going to check out Mothers Milk :thumb:
