Yeah me too, but i think they became better when they introduced a more melodic element. Their songwriting matured so that they started to use the funk-rap more as a tool to give their songs individuality rather than it just being the basis for the song itself.

I understand what your saying, but I disagree. I think that they have always had a melodic element in their music. Their first giant hit song, Under the Bridge, is pretty melodic and has a "mature" songwriting theme, no? Anthony Kieddis has always incorporated a funky-rap style into the way he delivers his lyrics; I think his sound is pretty consistent - melodic on the slower, softer songs and the funky-rap style on the faster ones. A combination of the two singing styles are always present on the albums but represented in different songs.

Yeah, that's right. I'm actually referring to albums post Mother's Milk as the better ones, beginning with Blood Sugar. That's the album where they really developed their songwriting and sound. It's the earlier albums with Slovak and Irons which i feel lack something.

I think RHCP's best album yet is Californication. From some reason it just tugs at my heart strings.
