Hi there, welcome to another Riot Act Reviews, where Steve and Remfry review a brand new album from the world of alternative music. Today we are looking at the 12th studio album from funk rock megastars Red Hot Chili Peppers, Unlimited Love.
This is the first album by the band since 2016’s The Getaway, and the first album to feature the band's iconic lead guitarist John Frusciante since his departure in 2009. It’s fair to say that the Chili’s haven’t really been at it for quite some time now. Whatever your cut off point on that period is, it’s fairly hard to defend at least the last decade. If you’re a glutton for punishment then maybe you let Frusciante’s return excite you enough to believe that this finally would be some kind of glorious return to form for the band. And if reviews outside of ours are to be believed then, well, maybe it is. Want to know what we think?... Come on, you probably already know what we think, but, you know, have a listen all the same eh?
