The Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Freaky Styley" / 1985 Review by: Benny Hogan
The return of late guitarist Hillel Slovak to the Chili Peppers mix proves to be a godsend on this fine release. With a little help from Funk God George Clinton, The Red Hot's breathe new life into a musical genre that, at the time, was considered long gone. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis is at his testosterone fuelled best, Flea hammers his four-string like it owes him money and Cliff Martinez provides precision drumwork. The album's true highlight however, is Hillel Slovaks guitar.

8 out of 10.
