I choose CAlifornication. Better album. Even if "Jupiter" was a solo album, it wouldn't be that good.

i chose jupiter, but i struggled to make the decision.

I would however take BSSM over Jupiter - I love Jupiter so you know how I feel about BSSM - it's a must own

Same here. I was beginning to wonder if there's something wrong with me because I am so shocked by the responses. I guess I do need to give SA more listening time, though.

I like these lines...

Porcelain
Do you carry the moon in your womb
Someone said that you're fading too soon
Drifting and floating and fading away

Come to think of it, it's kinda U2-ey.

Yeah I originally had this problem with StArc as well.

Basically my advice is to look at it like you would look at a Franz Ferdinand album. Not as an album, but as an awesome collection of songs all in one place that you can rearrange and play with however you like.

It makes a lot more sense like that.

I actually like Mother's Milk a lot, I just wouldn't say it's a must own. Everything post Blood Sugar seems watered down RHCP to me. Everything people say about 00's U2 and how they write to make hits is how I feel about RHCP.
I see the Chili Peppers' output from 1999 (OHM does nothing for me) and onwards as growth, not regression. They might not be playing quite so many funky grooves anymore, and they might not have the same kind of musical synergy they once had, but I think their actual song writing is eons better now than it was then. Even though their stuff is a bit poppier, I think it's still better than most pop-rock around these days...including U2. By The Way has some of the greatest melodies they've ever written, in my view. Stadium Arcadium...not so much, but I still think it's good. And Anthony has gotten so much better.

However, all that said, BSSM will always be number one with me. It has some lyrical flaws and some of the melodies are a bit meh, but they were at their tightest with that album. All the instruments worked so well with one another.

Edited for being confusing.
