Red Hot Chili Peppers: Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991)

RHCP blood sugarBy Scott Goldfine

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have arrived! Two years after the gold breakthrough “Mother’s Milk,” “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” finds the band with a new label, new producer and a full realization of their hyper funk-rock technique. Thanks to peerless producer Rick Rubin, the Peppers have more sonic zing, focus and variety than on any of their previous four albums.

This one is a real treat and an album of the year contender.
