Stadium Arcadium: Post-Amputation Surgery

Did you ever look at a double album, good or bad, and figured 'this could be even better as a shorter, kickass single album'? That's what this is about. Picking my favorite moments from it and trying to put em into an imaginary, concise and consistent release. First one to give it a go is stadium arcadium, this one gets really short here because, in all honesty, it's not that great. Still, original version is a 2.5 for me, this could be a nice 3.3 on a good day.

Stadium Arcadium

Dani California - far from this band's best openers but still holds a nice groove to start things out and nice to hear Froosh going all crazy during that last minute.
2Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Snow (Hey Oh) - obviously the big single here, brings back the chill vibes from californication and a good one to leave the listener singing along early on.
3Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Desecration Smile - picking up where track no. 2 left off, this one is just as mellow but upbeat enough to add an extra punch and pave the way for the next couple of tunes.
4Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Hump De Bump - this one brings the funk back to the record, wacky bass and trumpets and all. This isn't no 'funky monks' but hey it's the best i can get here.
5Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Charlie - obligatory dancey funk tune inclusion, this one gets too sugary sometimes but it's forgivable because of the sick groove on the verse and bridge.
6Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Stadium Arcadium - the big centerpiece, a culmination of their mellow sound's best qualities... memorable melodies, classic Froosh backing vox and Kiedis in the record's best performance, this one's a beauty.
7Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Especially In Michigan - as close to filler as a 9-song album can get, this one is a pretty underrated deep cut if not overdone in the chorus, this tune adds a different taste to the experience.
8Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Animal Bar - this one is a peculiar little gem being both playful and catchy, combines the best of both worlds i guess, has a nice atmosphere as we approach the end and definitely one of the big standouts.
9Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

Wet Sand - the sorrowful closer, this one sort of encapsulates the sound this whole album tries to capture pretty well, that is until Froosh wanks the sh't out of the last couple of seconds.
