A simply classic example of early Chili Peppers punk rock style, many excelent songs, including Stone Cold Bush, Good Time Boys and Sexy Mexican Maid. This album is my favourtie by the Peppers as the songs are timeless classics of heavy punk rock music from the 1980's-90's.
I LOVE this album. Flea's bass is incredible. There are so many songs that I absolutely love on this album. The differences from fast high passed songs to songs like Pretty Little Ditty makes this album absolutely brilliant. A true classic and so underrated!
"A wide array of hardcore funk metal" is the best deion i can think of. Mother's Milk is fairly refined without really being precise. Johnny Frusciante guitar doesnt wail and doesnt melt your face off like he will in the future, but the rhythm and funk levels are still pretty spot on. Chad Smith and Flea are as excellent as ever, but the really problem is Anthony Keidis. He has yet to develop a singing voice, and for those fans of the later RHCP, this is a major turnoff. An even larger hindrance to the album's success is Keidis's lyrics. It doesn?t possess anything besides surface meaning, and the hooks of the fun songs are lacking. Not to mention there is a fair share of filler that seems rushed and not taken care of. Higher Ground is the obvious track pick, but besides that, you have to dig way too hard to find some other good music for non-funk fanboys.
