Best record since “With Teeth”, if not since “The Fragile”. He has finally abandoned all that Sub-Manson-posturing of inane indutrial-rock that proliferated on “Year Zero” and “The Slip” and brought us something truely exciting again: Minimalist beats, experimental textures and interesting songwriting…

I would listen to this at my local record store in Switzerland about once a week for months, being entranced by the explosive build-up and sonic deliciousness of the likes of ‘Cherub Rock’ and ‘Hummer’…Never, to this day, have I gotten into the second half of this record, though…I might be missing out…Still, overall I do prefer the more expansive ‘Mellon Collie’.

My personal summer-song, besides “Henrietta” and the whole Hot Chip album:

I think the band does feel revitalized, and more interesting sonically. Chad Smith appears to have taken some inspiration from his sideproject, his playing is much more lively than recently. I do think the first have of the record is more interesting though. Certainly a worthy addition to the RHCP-canon…
