John Frusciante

Album Title: Shadows Collide With People
Release Date: February 24, 2004
Rating:
Genre: Rock
Synonymous with the lo-fi and experimental when away from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciante is a musician with obvious desire on this opus.
Having pulled two previous solo records from the shelf feeling not to be a real representation of himself (John openly admits cobbling together 'Smile…' for drug money), you feel throughout that this is the album he has been wanting to make his whole life.

"I was afraid to be me. Be anything you want to be." – Track 4 'Ricky'

This lyric has created something truly touching and exceptional.
'Shadows Collide With People' opens with 'Carvel', immediately exhibiting John's love for the electronically random before bursting into one of the finest and most visceral openers penned in recent memory.
The standard never drops, though those new to Frusciante's work may find experimental tracks such as 'Failure 33 Object' tough listening.
Get past this and you will discover an album of unrivalled beauty, harmony and passion that belongs in the collection of any music fan.
As diverse as previous efforts have been experimental, 'Shadows…' will satisfy any open minded listener, the melancholic reflection of 'Regret' being one of many stand-out tracks.
If you liked 'Venice Queen' and 'Warm Tape' from the last Chili's album 'By The Way'. Even if you haven't heard any solo Frusciante, give this a listen and it will change your life.
