Red Hot Chili Peppers - One Hot Minute

by Bob Coyne Rating: Release Date:1995-09-11

One Hot Minute was the first and only album to feature the talents of guitarist Dave Navarro, formerly of Jane's Addiction. A difficult sixth album, especially after the phenomenal success of Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik; in true form, the band beats a p-funk groove, be it bittersweet ballad or abrasive punk. More progressive than their previous offerings, songs like "One Big Mob" and "Warped" blur the fine line between frenetic power-metal and intense psychedelia. At the quieter end of this infinitely coloured spectrum are the signature ballads for which they are so revered and "My Friends" does the job perfectly. One Hot Minute has got everything a Chili Peppers record should need and then some, as their music grows in all manner of wondrous new directions. --David Trueman
