I just scooped this one up yesterday. Very cool. I own all of his solo albums, and I thought it would be tough topping To Record Only Water For 10 Days, but this did it. It's much more "rocky", much more full band oriented, and it's hearbreakingly beautiful at times. It's much more professionally recorded than past albums (but not too hi-fi), and John's voice is improving dramatically. Flea even plays upright on one track. Nice! This is a great CD. Go out and buy it, right now. I'm not kidding. Go.
