Back at it again six years later: Red Hot Chili Peppers drop “Unlimited Love”
Red Hot Chili Peppers, the American rock band formed in 1983, released their latest project “Unlimited Love” on April 1. For decades, the group blended elements of psychedelic rock, alternative rock, funk metal and punk rock. Although the two works prior to “Unlimited Love” were moving, Frusciante’s skronky jamming and enticing balladry was missing. Whether you want to sing along, jam out or simply please your ears with calm drumming and strumming, “Unlimited Love” is worth listening to on repeat. Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea and Frusciante all killed it in writing and bringing their magic together to create organic tracks.themiamihurricane.com
