Was at my local ASDA this afternoon where I purchased the 'Red Hot Chili Peppers: By The Way' (CD) for £1.

It wasn't on sale or special, believe it or not £1 was the 'standard' shelf price! Anyway, best online price appears to be £2.91 (WHSmith, The Hut etc), so this is a tidy little saving on a classic CD.


CD Description
----------------
'By The Way' is the eighth album from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the follow up to their multi-platinum selling 1999release 'Californication'. This album is more varied than their previous work, and sees them combining melodic funk rock with flamenco guitars, Motown influenced vocals, and BeachBoys inspired harmonies. Produced by Rick Rubin who has worked on three of their previous albums.

The problem Anthony Kiedis and his supremely dysfunctional musical family faced when beginning work on their eighth album, By the Way, wasn't so much how to top (or even compare) to the critical and commercial euphoria of 1999's superb Californication, but more how to avoid the comedown that followed their other highpoint--Blood Sex Sugar Magik--where One Hot Minute turned into several long years that nearly finished them. They decided, it seems, to just shut their eyes, press pedal to metal and continue as before. It's worked magnificently--no small thanks to the canny production of Rick Rubin again and the cohesive gelling Frusciante back into what has now emerged as a tight, focused unit (despite the album being, as ever, about five songs too long--"Midnight" and "Minor Thing" for instance). Minor quibbles though, for when the Chili Peppers are average, they still tower over most other bands.

"By The Way", by far not the best cut here (those would be the quite wonderful "Tear" and widescreen "Don't Forget Me"), picks up where Californication left off, but is not representative of an album that frequently revisits the sunshine harmonies of "Road Trippin'" and desolate landscape of "Scar Tissue". Endlessly surprising and hugely engaging, the Chili Peppers have opened their eyes and found themselves with a another great record on their hands, solidifying both themselves as a group and their position as one of the world's best rock bands.

looveeee this album!! its like giving away hapiness for a pound.

This album is fantastic, Ive owned this for years since I brought it week of release, still listen to it now!! By far best chillies album IMO! Great find

Great album and an unbelievably great price. Has anyone else noticed that the price of a lot of good cd's now seems to be less than the cost of an mp3 from some where like iTunes? Even a lot of recently released CD's can be picked up cheap.

better cd than greatest hits even

Excellent album, and at that price, well worth it!

Got it like 7 years ago for christmas. Still listen to it every week

Hot, Red Hot.....

if you don't have it, probably the best pound you'll ever spend, gota be hot!

Fantastic album, I still regard it as their best (and yes I think Californication is great, but By The Way is for me)

slap bass tastic

How on earth can they charge £1 for this album? Everyone should buy it at this price! Rep added my friend!

Good but nowhere near as good as Blood Sugar Sex Magik - RHCP lost the funk in the 90s. Still very hot though.
