I discovered not long ago John's music, started right from this album, and consider it to be one of the most brilliant albums of all. In search for music, I discovered the Empyrean :)
Frusciante sounds more like himself, not like "funky" peppers and it's great.
It's extremely rare thing, when not just few songs, but a full album is worth to listen to.
Life changing album, a masterpiece, a pure genius, I know it'll hold a special place in my heart forever. Still so fresh and transcendental. Love at first listen.
I remember the first listen on January 2009, I was travelling to Berlin when it's been released.
one of the greatest albums in the history of recorded music 
I keep questioning myself why Frusciante isn't known as the best living guitarrist. Is there anyone in this planet that doesn't feel touched listening to this masterpiece? Fuck, this is amazing as amazing can be!
the vinyl of this is such a poor quality pressing. the CD is miles ahead in audio quality. hopefully someone will read this and save themselves some cash from money hungry fans selling this supposed 'rarity'.
