Review: Red Hot Chili Peppers – My Friends (Rock)

This review covers the alternative rock track Red hot Chili Peppers – My Friends.

This track was released in 1995 on the album One Hot Minute.

The track starts off with some guitars of the more acoustic variety. From there, the vocals take the track into the first round of the main chorus. Some backup vocals make a brief appearance. After that, the drum kit comes in before the vocals continue into a verse.

From there, the vocals take the track into the main chorus after a couple of drum hits. The backup vocals come in again for a moment. This section is capped off with an instrumental section.

After that, the vocals continue. The track then pulls back as the vocals carry on with the next verse. Another instrumental section comes in. A strumming guitar and some high hats lead the track out.

One thing this track aims to go for is seemingly highlight the pitfalls of solitary life. Not a bad theme to try and hit on.

A problem with this track is that the vocals hit some awkward higher notes. This not only disrupts any quality that this track strives for, but also causes some of the lyrics to get lost in the mix.

The guitar work is decent enough. I really don’t have a whole lot to complain about in that area.

Overall, this track is OK. The vocals do hit some awkward notes. As a result, it takes a lot away from the overall track. The guitar work is decent enough, though. So, an OK track, but nothing huge.
