About this album

One Hot Minute is the sixth studio album by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on September 12, 1995 on Warner Bros. Records.

The worldwide success of the band’s previous album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, caused guitarist John Frusciante to become uncomfortable with their status, eventually quitting mid-tour in 1992. It would be the first and only album former Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro would record with the band. His presence altered the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ sound considerably.

One Hot Minute contains fewer sexual themes than previous records, and explores darker subject matters such as drug use, depression, anguish and grief. It also integrated use of heavy metal guitar riffs. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who had resumed addictions to cocaine and heroin in 1994 after being sober for more than five years, approached his lyricism with a reflective outlook on drugs and their harsh effects.

One Hot Minute was a commercial disappointment despite producing three hit singles and reaching #4 on the Billboard Top 200. Blood Sugar Sex Magik had sold twice as many copies as One Hot Minute and received far more critical acclaim. Navarro was ultimately fired from the band due to creative differences in 1998.

    Blood Sugar and One Hot Minute are my two favourite albums and I love OHM equally with BSSM. It's not better or worse, it's just different, but still amazing! +Fun Fact: It's actually the first album with entirely original material (no covers)

    Flea almost single-handedly turned this one into a great album. He contributes most of the songwriting which is kinda great and the bass on this one is just als great as ever. I could never call it a bad album although i hate Dave Navarro.

    It's my favorite of theirs too, and that Mark Ryden cover is total win.

    My favourite Chili's album. As much as I enjoy the Chili's this is the only album by them which I enjoy consistently from start to finish. Dave Navarro is amazing.

    Some very good songs aside, hell no. Navarro's guitar work on this is great but his layered approach doesn't always fit and I'm not crazy about Rubin's production either. Deep Kick encapsulates everything wrong with the album - ambitious but unfocused, loud but compressed. When something takes two years to record (Kiedis' drug addiction isn't really a foil here, considering it dominates the lyrics) and still sounds unfinished when completed (some of the tracks run into each other without any warning (pause/fade) or transition for instance), you know all is not right. Even with the stylistically inherent flaws, it still should have been better. I'm not trying to deliberately go against a grain here but I think One Hot Minute is one of those "overrated underrated" albums. Some critics definitely went overboard but this is hardly their best album. Perhaps some people have an affinity for it because of it's grungy alt rock stylings. The Chilis have put out better music before and since...
