About this album

Californication is the seventh studio album by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on June 8, 1999 on Warner Bros. Records. Produced by Rick Rubin, Californication marked the return of John Frusciante, who had previously appeared on Mother’s Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik, to replace Dave Navarro as the band’s guitarist. Frusciante’s return was credited with changing the band’s sound altogether. The record was a notable shift in style from what was produced with Navarro. The album’s subject material incorporated various sexual innuendos commonly associated with the band, and introduced themes of lust, death, contemplations of suicide, and drugs.

Californication produced several hits for the band, including “Otherside”, “Californication” and the Grammy Award-winning “Scar Tissue”. Californication peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200. It is the Chili Peppers’ most commercially successful album to date, selling more than fifteen million copies worldwide; a revitalization in comparison to their previous album, One Hot Minute. The record marked a change in style for the band; Rolling Stone’s Greg Tate noted that “while all previous Chili Peppers projects have been highly spirited, Californication dares to be spiritual and epiphanic.”

    It's funny that I don't really like the singles but the other songs are so good that it became one of my favorite albums. It's quite impressive that there isn't a one weak track here

    You mean *in* flac, as in the popular lossless file format? I'd suggest finding a player that works, because lossless music in general is greatly preferable to lossy formats like mp3. Almost any common player (winamp, foobar, VLC , clementine, etc.....) can play flac just fine. It's also really easy to convert it to another format using a free program like Dbpoweramp .

    Why don't you want it in flac?

    Does anybody had a decent fan master edition of it? Like someone literally making the music less compressed? Because it's impossible to find the 2012 vinyl edition when it ISN'T on FLAC.

    Ashamed to admit I only recently discovered this great album. Have to agree about the loudness though, it's awful.

    Look for 2014 unofficial remaster. It's pretty good. The way album should sound from the begining.

    If the mastering wasn't so bad this would have more plays from me/a higher RYM raiting.
