  Californication : Red Hot Chili Peppers : Review : Rolling Stone
In this album, the one thing that stands out is the fact that the Chili Peppers have changed their style of music from the funk/punk mixture of Blood Sugar Sex Magik to now a more melodic style of music.
And as the album reached a massive popularity with hit-singles released, it was the perfect album for a band who'd almost been clumsing its own talent away.
This is a five star album with great tracks such as "Otherside", "Easily", and "Californication", it lays the foundation for their later efforts of 2002's "By The Way" and this years release of "Stadium Arcadium".

  Californication (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Californication is the seventh album by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on June 8, 1999 (see 1999 in music) John Frusciante, their former guitarist from the Blood Sugar Sex Magik days, returned to the band replacing Dave Navarro, the former guitarist of the alternative band Jane's Addiction.
Californication is often held up as an example of the damage caused by the loudness war.
For this album, the method of having the tracks segue into each other, which had been used for the two preceding RHCP albums Blood Sugar Sex Magik and One Hot Minute, was dropped in favour of a conventional short pause at the end of each song.

 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication Review - sputnikmusic
The album Californication marked many things; for one, the return of John Frusciante to the line-up after he had confronted his demons.
Although previous albums had more of a funk feel, Californication cements their move into the Alt Rock genre with songs like Scar Tissue, allowing Kiedis to show a level of maturity that some thought was less present in previous albums.
Californication was alright, but there were too many weak songs on the album - Porcelain and Road Trippin are two horrible tracks that come to mind.

 Californication (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
One line ("Tidal waves couldn't save the world from Californication") is a possible reference to either the late comedian Bill Hicks, or the Tool song Ænema, which references the work of Bill Hicks.
Another theme that the band explores in the song is their own version of the meaning of the word "Californication." The chorus "Dream of Californication" is probably satirical, referencing musicians like KISS and Mötley Crüe, who use their fame to have sex with female fans.
Californication is a unique video in that it takes the form of a video game from the point of view of the player.

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.
An obvious reason for their rebirth is the reappearance of guitarist John Frusciante (replacing Dave Navarro), who left the Peppers in 1992 and disappeared into a haze of hard drugs before cleaning up and returning to the fold in 1998.

 Red Hot Chili Peppers best album? - Hydrogenaudio Forums   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The old albums (pre 1991) are very boring, anything else not mentioned yet is filler.
Their earlier stuff although not as popular was probably even better although I am not familiar with Freaky Styley, etc (definitely had Parliment and Funkadelics influence) H. Slovak was the heart soul of the Chilli Peppers don't forget this was the guy who taught Flea how to play Bass.
I don't think they have released one bad album in their career, although I would have to say this probably had the least appeal amongst the general consensus of folks.

Most of the inclusions on the album will have been big hits but altogether, the album as a whole just isn't all that amazing, let down by filler material or downright forgettable songs.
Californication and By the Way were huge commercial successes, holding host to a huge number of memorable singles and so forth.
If Californication is your favourite album by the band, classic singles from it will keep you in high spirits.

 Californication - Red Hot Chili Peppers - Review - I Stark Ravingly Love This Album!
This was the first Chili Peppers album that I bought after having listened to half a dozen tracks from it during a school skiing trip on a cassette player (which gives an idea of how long I’ve had this thing).
The album ‘Californication’ can be argued to be the most successful album of the chilis repertoire, indeed many people think this is only the second or third album by the band, not knowing the band much earlier, more funky sounding albums.
I’d have to say this is the weakest song on the album, does have bits of brilliance via guitars but the lyrics and rhythm which characterise other songs on this album just seem to be missing.

 Review of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 'Californication'
Californication (1999) is the seventh album from the famous Red Hot Chili Peppers and the follow up to the slightly disappointing One Hot Minute.
For those that are familiar with the band's sound, this is more of the same- the distinctively whiny vocals of Anthony Kiedis, supported by Flea (bass), Chad Smith (drums) and, yet again, the excellent John Frusciante (guitar).
It is not as if their formula has changed, but all of a sudden the same pieces are formed into an unattractive whole.

 Red Hot Chili Peppers Album Reviews
Granted, the album is still too long, and the harder rocking tracks are generally less impressive than the melodic mellower moments that fortunately make up the bulk of the album.
This album is a continuation of the mellower, more mature style first found on their multi platinum comeback album Californication, which quite frankly is exactly what I was hoping for at this point.
Truth is, for the second album in a row the band are at their best showing their gentler side on songs such as “Universally Speaking,” “Dosed” (my personal favorite), “The Zephyr Song” (an airy pop song that’s the album’s first single), and “Tear,” an expertly constructed song that evokes The Beatles and The Beach Boys.

 Trademark, Copyright, and Entertainment Law Forum: Red Hot Trademark Infringement. . . or Not
Looking at some of the discography of the band, album titles such as "Freaky Styley," "Mother's Milk," and "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" highlight the earlier part of the band's career while "Californication," "By the Way" and "Stadium Arcadium" highlight the latest part of the band's career.
While "Californication" was the best-selling album for the band, "Blood Sugar Sex Magik," was probably the album that put the band on the popular music map (and probably marked a turning point in their sound due to the popular slow-tempo song, "Under the Bridge").
Ultimately, "Californication," while a great height in the band's career, cannot be a trademark for the band as the band's name itself would be the mark.

 The Daily Vault Album Reviews : Californication
Their next album barely cracks a million in the sales mark.
Though that album featured some of the band's finest musicianship, it netted only a quarter of the sales of Blood Sugar.
That all said, the Chili Peppers new album, Californication, breaks out with the furious, groove heavy "Around The World." Guitarist John Frusciante's return to the band is immediately apparant.

One Hot Minute, the Red Hot Chili Peppers dropped out of sight for a while and came back strong - partly because of the return of original member John Frusciante, back from a long and torturous battle with drug addiction.
Despite the addition of [insert name here] as a replacement for Frusciante on that previous album, the vibe somehow wasn't the same (even though it yielded the minor hit Aeroplane).
The first single from Californication, Scar Tissue, is a perfect example of the new happy medium the band has struck (and the fact that it stayed on the charts for a while demonstrates that the instincts and Anthony Kiedis and his bandmates are still sharp).

Californication sees the return of John Frusciante to the groups line up, which is no bad thing as he was involved in the bands most successful album Blood Sugar Sex Magik which contained the magnificent Under The Bridge, recently covered by none other than All Saints.
Californication by the Red Hot Chili Peppers is their best album and one of my favourite albums.The first track is good but there are better tracks.The only track that I don't like is track 8:Porcelain.
The album had so much funky punky style it was stupid, the lead singers voice was smooth and clear and the lyrics in all of the songs.
