the new RHCP album is absolutely astounding. Words can't really describe this double disc album. With each album these guys make, you sit in awe at the newest perfection of their sound, and SA is no different. If you were to take all the best pieces of their 20+ year history, molded them together, you still wouldnt have the perfection of this album. It truely is one of the most beautiful albums I have ever heard, and that is an unbiased fact. Every song (all 28 of them) pours with emotion, lyrical truth and wit, musical exellence...they all span from beautifully crafted melodies to chest thumping jams, all the while never loosing sight of how they are and have become over the years. Each song gets stuck in your head after you are able to pick your jaw up off the floor, and very little does that (to me at least). They truely are soaring through new ground and reinventing the ground they have already traversed over the years. There is not a single song you want to skip over. In fact, you are torn between hitting repeat or hearing the next amazing track. Really, even if you arent a RHCP fan, you have no soul if this album doesnt appeal to you.
