I know a lot of people don't like the red hot chili peppers, but I was wondering how many people are familiar with John Frusciante's solo albums? I've tried using the search function many many times but I get an error every time, so... hope this hasn't been discussed too recently.

He's made:
Niandra Ladies & Usually Just a T-Shirt
Smile From the Streets You Hold
To Record Only Water For 10 Days
From The Sounds Inside
Shadows Collide With People
Automatic Writing (w/Ataxia)
The Will To Death
Inside of Emptiness
A Sphere In The Heart of Silence
Curtains
also: Going Inside EP and DC EP

And an unnamed project with Josh Klinghoffer, follow up to Shadows Collide With People, to be released this year.

Also, he's got the side project called Ataxia, second album for that is almost out.

The last 6 on that main list were part of the 6 albums in 6 months thing he did last year. Many of them are a bit.. similar? But that's understandable since they were all recorded in such a concentrated amount of time and then released as seperate albums.


Shadows Collide With People is my favorite, it's not as rough as his other material, some people think it's too polished actually- but there are some really great songs on it, including Carvel, one of my favorite songs of his.


So, basically, if you haven't ever given his stuff a listen, there's plenty to choose from.

pretty sure this has been disscussed alot but nonetheless he is a killer guitar player and a killer singer. he is simply a genious. his voice is really really good though, or at least it is now.(i can bareley listen to the stuff pre-record water cuz of how raw it is...its still good though. he is the man.

his solo stuff is amazing
i love smile from the streets you hold and im glad that he decided to re-release it because its very powerful imo (even though a lot of people who i know hate it). I also just got curtains and downloaded the 2nd ataxia project and both are spectacular

"to record only water..." and "curtains" are my favourite records of his, although every person on shawods collide with people is my favourite frusciante song.

the will to death changed my whole perspective on john frusciante both as a musician and as a human being

that album blows me away on so many levels

makes me wonder wtf he is doing with rhcp sometimes

But it's nice to notice he grabbed, or the Chilis that is, Josh on board for Aussie tour!

Been a John-devotee since I heard him sing Tiny dancer on Pinkpop fest bootleg. NiandraLaDes really took some time to grow on me, as an album.

Favourites:

Niandra - My smile is a rifle
To record - Fallout
Shadows - Wednesday's song
Will to death - Loss
Ataxia - the first track (I rarely listen to it with the album cover)
DC EP - A corner
Inside of emptiness - tough one... 666 or Scratches. Firm kick has the best C-part.
Sphere - can't remember any titles, prefer John's vocals to Josh's anyways
Curtains - Anne or Ascension. Def Anne
Ataxia II - Hands A.K.A Ethiopian song

John has also made me find out fine artists like T.Rex, Sweet, Siouxsie and the Banshees, P.I.L and the list goes on...

Seen him doing great versions of Sweet's Fox on the run, KISS's Love Gun! and King Crimson's Lament, not to forget version almost on the level of Tiny dancer, We're going wrong by Cream.

Some good stuff. I like Curtains.


My favorite aswell, something about the vocals and the melodies, he reminds me of a medieval muse on this cd.

Wait ... Smile from the Streets You Hold had a re-release?

Other: I looove Niandra ... and To Record ... , both amazing albums with mindblowing songs on them. Took me a while to get into Shadows ... though, but I consider it wonderful now ... especially the acoustic version.

shadows collide with people is one of the most beautiful albums of all time. i can really see how he says that he channels the music from the spirits in the air, because he really got them down on tape right on this one. so haunting, epic, and mesmerizing.

his voice and guitar playing do things to me that no one else can. i really mean that.

I need these albums:

Niandra Ladies & Usually Just a T-Shirt
Smile From the Streets You Hold
A Sphere In The Heart of Silence
From the Sounds Inside

Can anybody hook me up with any of these? I love his other albums.

yeah he first released it for drug money then pulled it because he waas pretty ashamed. then released it again after he got clean because he realized that it was really sick even though he was all doped up.

He should leave RHCP, only Californication is as good as his solo work.

Shadows, Curtains, To Record Only Water, Inside of Emptiness, & Will to Death are all pretty fine albums.

To Record Only Water For 10 Days is a bit special and his only consistently good album. The first three songs on Shadows Collide are really good though.
