The seventh full-length album by legendary American Alternative/Funk Rock band.
Many figured that the Red Hot Chili Peppers' days as undisputed Alternative kings were numbered after their lackluster 1995 release "One Hot Minute", but like the great phoenix rising from the ashes, this legendary and influential outfit returned back to greatness with 1999's "Californication". The record marked a significant change in style for the band. Also "Californication" marked the return of John Frusciante, who left the Peppers in 1992 and disappeared into a haze of hard drugs before cleaning up and returning to the fold in 1998, to replace Dave Navarro as the band's guitarist. Frusciante was a main reason for such past band classics as 1989's "Mother's Milk" and 1991's "Blood Sugar Sex Magik", and proves once and for all to be the quintessential RHCP guitarist. Frusciante's return was credited with changing the band's sound altogether, producing a notable shift in style from the music recorded with Navarro. Anthony Kiedis' vocals have improved dramatically as well, while the rhythm section of bassist Flea and drummer Chad Smith remains one of rock's best.
The album's subject material incorporated various sexual innuendos commonly associated with the band, but also contained more varied themes than previous outings, including lust, death, contemplations of suicide, California, drugs, globalization, and travel.
"Californication" is the Chili Peppers' most commercially successful studio release, with over 15000000 copies sold worldwide, and more than 5000000 in the United States alone. As of 2002, the album had sold over 4000000 copies in Europe. The record produced several hits for the band, including "Otherside", "Californication" and the Grammy Award-winning "Scar Tissue". "Californication" peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200.
Warner Music Australia, a Warner Music Group, 1999 (9362473862). Made in Australia.
