Best Of 2011: #21
#21: Red Hot Chili Peppers - I'm With You
No original review.
Stadium Arcadium, essentially two albums in one, was a stunning piece of work, but there's something not quite up there on this one. Maybe it was just the expectations, but this one is 14 tracks long (as long as either side of Stadium Arcadium) and drags its heels a bit. That said, there are some great ones: Factory Of Faith with its great bassline, The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie with its grand chorus, and Did I Let You Know? with its guitar riff and the brass instruments that turn up slightly unexpectedly. By no means is this their best album, but neither is it their worst.
