Revolver: Red Hot Chili Peppers – Aeroplane

Whether One Hot Minute is a disappointment in the Chilis’ arsenal is up for debate. Many consider it to be one of their weakest albums, although we’d add that everything post-Californication hasn’t been up to standard, but it certainly yielded some great songs, and this has to be the cream. That oh-so funky slap line in the verse isn’t as flashy as many of Flea’s lines, but his wiry tone and heavy thumb make you want to get up and leap around, while the fingerstyle line in the chorus, with its huge slides and groovy fills, weaves in and out of the vocal melody. And there’s an awesome bass solo break to boot. Weak effort? We think not.

    One hot minute is the most unappreciated album on the peppers archive. I didn’t pay much attention to it until my RHCP tribute band added 4songs from that cd to our set list. Aeroplane,Coffee shop,and My Friends are classic RHCP songs that deserve a listen if you love songs with great bass lines. Thanks Flea u rock!!!
