Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rolling Stone Magazine's #310

exile staff consensus: Top 500 album

the breakdown:
2.5 cannons - venerableseed
2.0 cannons - polchic and the angry young man
1.5 cannons - lenbarker and eurowags

the essays:
to our own LB, who became the proud papa of LB, Jr. on 11/28/07. The little guy will be a lead guitarist in no time!

12/3 @ 9:00 a.m. - polchic speaks on the wear and tear of her precious Blood Sugar Sex Magik tape.

11/29 @ 9:00 a.m. - I'm up with some memories from the bridge.

11/27 @ 9:00 a.m. - Len wishes for more brevity in Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Would that be less blood, less sugar, less sex, or less magik? He also managed a dig at The Joshua Tree. On its 20th anniversary no less!

the introduction (done with LL Cool J's Radio and Johnny Cash's American Recordings):
LL, the Chili Peppers, and Johnny Cash. Their Rolling Stone connection: Rick Rubin. Yes, all three albums were produced by that genre defying, Def Jam creating, minimalist producing workhorse. Two more of his hip hop albums and another Chili Peppers album appear on the list. That's right. No Slayer, no Danzig, and no System of a Down. Nevertheless seven ain't bad on such a 60's and 70's-centric list. And the man shows no signs of stopping. In the last two years he's recorded with eight more artists who made the RS500 list: Neil Diamond, U2, Green Day, Nas, KRS-One, Metallica, Weezer, and Jay-Z. Are those eight more disparate than the three albums we're about to hear? Let's see.
