I saw an article on MTV.com which was surprisingly well written. http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1524554/20060217/red_hot_chili_peppers.jhtml?headlines=true 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!!!
