Gotcha! Would also be true the other way round though, with diminishing ambition from "There's Nothing Left To Lose" on...

Hate to be a wiseass, but shouldn't it read "succeeded" instead of "preceded"?

RS's David Fricke thinks anything by any band that started in the early nineties or before, and that had at least one classic album, deserves FIVE STARS.

He was already going into that directions with 2010s N.E.R.D-album "Nothing"...

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'.

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...
