10 May 2021

Album: GULAG ORKESTAR – debut LP
Released: 9 May 2006 – 15 years ago

AllMusic: “Ignore the clunky lyrics — easy enough to do since Condon is an
unexpectedly appealing singer with a rich, mellifluous voice that, no kidding,
recalls the great bel canto crooners of the pre-rock era (along with a little
Nick Cave) — and Gulag Orkestar is an infinitely more appealing album.”

Album: THE DRIFT – 13th solo LP
Released: 8 May 2006 – 15 years ago

“The sound and subject matter for the album is unrelentingly dark
and unsettling, often juxtaposing quiet sections with sudden loud
noise to induce discomfort in the listener. Subjects include torture,
disease, 9/11, Elvis Presley (and his stillborn twin brother Jesse Garon
Presley), and the Srebrenica massacre.”

Album: STADIUM ARCADIUM – 9th LP ( a double one)
Released: 9 May 2006 – 15 years ago

Los Angeles Times wrote: “They’ve never sounded this good as musicians.
The use of analog tape lends a raw, organic touch to the whole album and
the Chili Peppers come off more assured and confident than they ever did
back when they made a career out of bragging.”
