just got into this dude, he has some better stuff on his new album. that song is the #8 most downloaded on itunes (in his album) so it's not the best sample of his work, but it's a personal fav because he uses his trade mark flow. kinda reminds me of iambic pentameter a little with his stress on certain syllables
I'm a huge fan of FF drummer Taylor Hawkins' background harmoniage of sorts in this song. In a way, reminds me of John Frusciante and I'm an enormous chili peppers fan.
Both albums are amazing and I strongly recommend you purchase or download them.
First impression: 3 out of 5
Second Impression 4.5 out of 5
At first I was disappointed like so many other people. Then I realized the chorus and the bassline are just too damn funky to ignore.
If you're an old chili's fan and you aren't digging the song, think about it this way. This song has the potential to be one of the best live performed songs the chili's have ever written. Not only will those guys go nuts on stage, but Josh has tons of room to improvise and pull a page out of the Frusciante book because his part is simple but great.
