the RHCP should be divided, a la the Misfits, into two periods.
Their first 5 records are some of the most energetic, pumped, amped party music you could hope for, and much of it flat out RULES.
everything after bloodsugarsexmagic was calculated to aim at the adult contempo crowd. ballads and pathetic arena style rockers. HORRIBLE SHIT
(of course the misfits should be split between Danzig era and the pathetic joke they call the misfits now.)
