The Uplift Mofo Party Plan is by far one of RHCP's most underrated works. Lying in the shadow of albums like Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication, it is, in fact, far more solid than people give it credit for. From the solid opener "Fight Like a Brave" to the awesome closer "Organic Anti-Beat Box Band", this is the band giving justice to their name in a way few of their fans coul've imagined. Yes, you read right, they are spicy as hell on this album, seemingly possessed by a fiery spirit that nowadays seems long gone. Don't judge it too quickly on first listen, take your time to enjoy and it will reveal to you just how powerful it really is.
Before he had to work his ass off to get the voice he currently has, Anthony Kiedis was afraid to sing. But he had a sick flow and rapped the truth on top of an innovative group of funk/punk badasses. This is the last album to feature Hillel Slovak on guitar before he died and Jack Irons on drums before he quit, but even with a change of personnel, this sounds more like the following LP, Mother's Milk, than the previous Freaky Styley. With tracks "Fight Like a Brave" and "Behind the Sun" leading the way, this is an album that I'm always up to listen to.
