    I saw an article on MTV.com which was surprisingly well written.


    If this article is as accurate as I hope it is. We're in for one hell of a treat with this new album. ~~ 25 SONGS ~~ I mean c'mon, there's gotta be something "classic Flea" on there. The article meantions this...

    "Arcadium, Flea said, is a funk-riddled rocker, which should be good news for the band's longtime fans."

    Being one of those longtime fans... I couldn't be any happier to hear that! And the stuff about Kanye West... I'll give them credit because that sounds like it could very interesting. I'm not much a fan of rap or hip hop, but I know West is an amazing songwriter and usually has great music to back him up. So needless to say I'm anxious to see what happens.

    Let me know what you guys think about all this.

    And hopefully Flea will be a born-again funker!!!

    Groovy! Mind you, I had to say something about this:

    So exactly what was Anthony doing for the majority of the first 4 albums?

    touche my good man..... Let me rephrase that.

    I don't enjoy more recent rap music involving bitches, hoes, and everything else these "ganstas" can talk about.

    Earlier hip hop I'm a fan of because it sparked something new and wasn't about making money necessarily, but about a life.

    Although I agree Anthony certainly rapped his way through the first few albums..... I think you knew what I was getting at.

    that's why I love flea. coming from anyone else, this would have been the most pretentious statement ever, but it's like, FLEA.

    So it's a the most pretentious statement ever made by a dyed-hair bassist instead of just the most pretentious statement ever?

    I'm not quite sure what you meant by the above ^^^ statement....

    But ya gotta respect the Flea... how many bassists can put a slap verse bass line and a bass solo into a worldwide number one hit song? (Aeroplane)

    Love him or hate him... He's pretty good at putting what we all love into mainstream music.
  7. Can't wait to hear the cd.

  8. I can't wait for it. even the cover looks sexy. Also, I can't wait to see them live for the first time. Hopefully I'll catch them on the U.S. tour!


  9. +1

    I don't really listen to rap much anymore, but that's why I admire guys like Outcast, they seem to be more positive, and creative than many others around today...

    Wow - this all sounds great... now I'm really looking forward to this album!

    You will not be disappointed. Of all the things that Flea does so well, his live performances are one of the most impressive things for me. The whole band has stage presence that is through the roof!

    I'm definitely looking forward to the album and the tour.

    Aeroplane was a number one hit song? That's news to me. :eyebrow:
    Besides, they cut out most of the bass solo for the single version.

    they also cut a lot of the guitar solo, which i thought was odd... its not like its an extremely long song or anything. :confused:
