From here.: John Frusciante’s fourth solo album, Shadows Collide with People, is a scatterbrained, eclectic tour de force and a joy to listen to. His guitar work, so sharp and funky for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, mellows for his solo work, and to beautiful effect. Frusciante gets experimental, as he has on his last three solo albums, but this time it really works. This album, though encompassing a wide variety of styles and genres, is ultimately rock music made very, very prettily.
I totally agree. This is an undiscovered gem of a record. I really really like it and has the best opening song on an album that I’ve heard in a while.
