I agree. Josh is one talented feller. and I really dig this new album, alot more than SA.
I've listened to the album now a few times, I'm actually kind of happy now that Josh has taken over in John's absence.
Am I the only one now who likes the new RHCP? I have a feeling the next album with Josh will be on par with the JF stuff.
Maybe Josh didn't show all he is capable of on the new album, still I think he did a very good job (what I did not think when I heard JF left). But in comparison to Stadium Arcadium it is "only good" in my opinion, I'm still impressed with the complexity of SA even after 5 years.
