Icon47 Stadium Arcadium

What do you think of the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, "Stadium Arcadium" ?. I think it is brilliant and very funky and I especially loved the new single. I saw them on Top Of The Pops too.

Great performance on TOTP, I really enjoyed that. Frusciante is always amazing live as is Chad... and the others!

I brought the Dani California singles today, for the non-album b-sides. I shall buy SA next monday when it comes out.

So Hertfordshire likes Stadium Arcadium then? Im inclined to agree, what i've heard from the album so far, i like quite alot, especially tell me baby! I've ordered it from HMV, and i hope the post doesnt mess it up on monday, or I shall not be happy! A little off the point, but does anyone know when music for the divine will be available for pre-order on the internet? I looked on a couple of sites yesterday, and it wasnt there, and i wanna make sure i get it straight away! he he! two weeks until my disseration is due in, then back to hertford, oh well, better make the most of the north now!

Yeah, none of the usual sites i use have it available for pre order yet. But the Chilis new one is number 1 and number 7 (different versions) for sales on www.powerplaydirect.com website.

Chad & the boys will be No 1 here next week for sure.

It's on Amazon, NEH Records and I'm sure a few European outlets for pre-order, since that's where you're at.

.... the new album is only available from Monday (May 8th) -
- and again, a top album is leaking via the internet prior to its release.
Check out his article here for example.

I wonder when record companies are going to stop sending out promos, advance copies, album samples or whatever they call it, only as a reaction to the fact that their music is being made available on and downloaded from the internet ILLEGALLY. Of course they have tried to prevent this, but all kinds of digital signatures and copyright protection obviously don't work.

And then again, how do you want to get the ball rolling for a new album, or even a new band, if you do not send out promos to radio stations and other media.....?
It's a vicious circle.

Illegal downloads widely are already included in record companies' calculations.
What you can't change is artists being fed up with it, because they don't see a single cent from illegal downloads.

So buy the record, if you want to support the artist!

unsure

On one of the pepper sites, there was a guy saying that they were selling Stadium Arcadium in Gibraltar on April 29. That's about when it "leaked". So it could have come from a promo copy or just somebody who got lucky enough to buy it early.

I think they did a pretty good job keeping it down to just a week before the release, instead of earlier. The Foo Fighters was being downloaded about a month before their release. And most "fans" are going to be buying it anyway.

This is the generation of instant gratification. And they announce these release dates soooo early, it's hard to wait. People are going to jump on it the first chance they get.

I guess one way to guarantee a record sale is to add a little something that is only available with the cd. Something like the video that was included with Soul Mover. Then again, even that was available on the internet before the release. Maybe a presale code for the tour or something...

But, what do I know?!? I'm just a fan...(and I've already pre-ordered.)

Theresa I think that is a very good point. Rather than crying their eyes out about free download sites, record companies should turn their attentions to giving a little extra especially on blockbuster albums such as those by U2, Chilis and the like. A pre sale code for the tour would be a good one. Some kind of discount might be another. It's a sales promotion technique which is very similar to those used by supermarkets to "reward" customers for their loyalty.

Also limited editions can create a buz AND give added monetary value to a CD too. Just look at the prices some limited edition CD's are fetching on ebay. OK if that's the economic climate we live in fine. But what stinks is making out that all the blame for falling sales lies with us criminal customers. It doesn't. It just takes a little creativity and imagination for record companies to make music desirable again.

i have friends at work who download albums in advance of official release well in advance. i had the Hard Fi album about 3 weeks before it came out. Its the same with TV programs. I have already watched Lost series 2 upto episode 15 via downloads, but it only started here last week.

The Chilis are up to number 2 in the singles charts here now.

I have now got Stadium Arcadium, and I love it! I have a few favourite tracks that stick out for me at the moment, but it is constantly changing! Its gonna take a while for me to listen to all of them properly, and take it all in, but at the mo, i like storm in a teacup, so much i, tell me baby, charlie, especially in michigan, and i'll stop now, or i'll just list the whole album! It looks like a number 1, its outselling the rest of the top ten albums put together in the UK!

i agree

there is a lot to digest on there. I have not picked my fave yet but i personally keep going back to wet sand, tell me baby and turn it again. It is NOT a good idea to put it in the alarm clock/cd player...I just lay there listening and forget to get up...

edit...stuck on Turn It Again

It's great hear to Frusciante and Chad rock out a little more than usual in places ('Readymade' and '21st Century' are current favourites). There's plenty of variety, the time-off certainly didn't do them any harm....but we knew that already, right

With regard to Christian's comment about promos and advance copies, I would think record companies would be so tired of releases being leaked to the internet that instead of sending out releases, they would give journalists an advance listening code - requiring them to log into a web site and listen to streaming audio that is unable to be downloaded or copied. There you go - I just solved part of the RIAA's leakage concerns. As for plain old theft from manufacturing plants and recording studios, I'll have to get back to you.


I was going to buy 'Stadium Arcadium' today, until I saw that it came in a double-digipak. I loathe digipaks, and will not be picking up the album until I find it in a jewel case, import or otherwise. Digipaks are shoddy, evil, and should be outlawed. Grr.


Cheers...Todd

Digipack

I know this topic has nothing to do with Glenn Hughes, but I read someone's question about what a digipack is. It is a form of CD packaging. To find more information about this, here are two website that I found. Just go to http://www.digipak.com. and http://www.collectorshelp.com.

Staduim Arcaduim

Have been playing the album for a week now and it just gets better and better. The guys have really thought about every note and phrase on this CD. John Frusciante is "out of this world" he seems to know what is right for each of the songs and displays a level and range of playing I have not heard from any other guitar player for a long time.

I have been a causal fan before, but not now,as a band they have matured and this is there finest by a long way, IMOP.

Well done guys you deserve high praise indeed. With MFTD about to surface any day I get the feeling this is going to be a vintage year for superb albums from two of very best artists there is.

Chad, you should be, as I am sure you are, so proud of the work on both albums. Just need Glenn to get the success he desrves , I am sure its on it way!!!

Well I think I'll be picking this up on the way home today. I've heard nothing but good things so far. Always been a quasi RHCP's fan, but I certainly respect them as musicians. Plus with Chad's GH connection I now have more interest.

As for M4TD, I have a friend who has it. He called me last night and said it's excellent! I will be getting a listen any day now

First of all. "Stadium Arcadium" is actually the first RHCP album which I really like including every song on it. In my opinion its a huge step forward. Great work indeed, Chad.

Talking about the illegal copying situation, I made the following experience.
People are downloading not everything but mostly albums of...let me call it "minor importance". If you are a true fan and if you are eager to get the new album of your favourite artist, you will alyways buy it. Not only to support the artist but also because its a whole different thing to hold the brandnew CD package in your hand, to open the booklet ect.

Only albums which are maybe of interest but not on first place of your budget list are mostly going to be downloaded.

That´s my experience with that when I look at lots of friends and other people I know.

cheers, Achim

Icon37 Stadium Arcadium

Hello Soulmover & Everyone,
I think I have to agree with Dave Navarro - lightbulb thing was a bad idea...and since I haven't been too interested in Chilis music. Their fault/loss or mine - hard to say...

I love Jane's Addiction - but somehow Navarro was wrong guitar player for Chilis...Chad - do you agree? btw. what happened to your mutual band project? Did it turn into Dave's solo album?

Of course the fact that Chad plays on Glenn's new album awoke my interest to RHCP again after all these years... ( I love Soul Mover and SLITCOA) I bought the missing RHCP albums...By The Way and the new one...

( I used to be huge RHCP fan - Hillel Slovak played his last gig here in Finland at Provinssi Rock, oh memories - Mother's Milk was OK and Blood Sugar Sex Magik was the biggest thing in the beginning of the 90's...I had Flea beard & all...funky monks..yeah!


Last time I saw RHCP on their Californication tour in Helsinki - Chad - whose idea was to play with Pelle Miljoona's band at Lepakko????

btw. can you imagine - that was years before Glenn's first visit to Finland)

Stadium Arcadium... I dunno - magik/fun is not there anymore....


...I'm very sorry but Glenn has to sing on next RHCP album or otherwise I won't buy it...

T


ps. what has happened to me???? I don't like anything new nowadays... Am I being over critical or what?

Ok, now I look like a big fat liar because I bought my wife the digipak release of the new RHCP What can I say? It was a gift...

I like what I've heard - and there is a lot to hear! - but I haven't had a chance to spin it repeatedly because my wife is hogging it. However, I bought the new Dixie Chicks album and despite what some naysayers may think of them, I think they have put out a great CD!


Chad, your playing on the Dixie Chicks disc may be restrained compared to your playing with RHCP and Big Daddy, but it is right in the pocket my friend. What an exciting year for you - you're playing on three stylistically different, superb albums!

Cheers...Todd

Hey Soulmover, wierd to hear you're on the Dixie Chix thang, is it any coincedence that I thought I heard a "Jury" riff in their current UK single? Maybe I've been around Big G and the Trapeze vibe for too long!!!

Love the new RHCP album by the way,

Regards, Hackney

Great CD

While taking the risk of getting stoned by some ppl in here, I must confess I like the Dixie Chicks CD pretty much and so do I with their previous releases also.
Modern country music or country rock(pop) is a direction which was very alive for the past 10 years. You could see a lot of movement and developement or progress in there. Very interesting songs and artists there. First of all, I do not speak about such pure "bluegrass" styles like Dolly Parton, for instance. Technically spoken, I like the kind of harmonies and how they sing the songs very much, you do not hear these skills in many other music genres nowadays anymore. Beside the fact that there is also a big commercial factor nowadays, like in most other music directions, it is very often pure, handmade and skilled music, which I often love to hear.
GH fans very often have a taste, which can be very diverse and so is mine.
A few of my favourite "New Country" artists are:
Dixie Chicks
Chely Wright
Sara Evans
Sherrie Austin
Deana Carter
Clint Black ...and many others...

cheers, Achim
