Album 365: Day 143 - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Favorite tracks: The Power of Equality, Suck My Kiss, The Greeting Song, My Lovely Man
Sleeper tracks: Breaking the Girl, Funky Monks, Under the Bridge

This was the first new CD I purchased.  I bought it the day I got my first Discman (along with a used Rush 'Hold Your Fire' and Zeppelin 'Houses of the Holy').

I wasn't really a RHCP fan before this album.  At the time, we didn't have cable so I wasn't hip to the videos for 'Higher Ground' and 'Knock Me Down' from the previous record.  I think I listened to this album almost every day for a couple months.

It's a really well produced record.  It's leaps and bounds better than Mother's Milk and is one of my favorite records from the 90s.  It still sounds fresh...over 20 years later.
