John Frusciante - Shadows Collide With People (2004) Retail CD
Rather than dwell once more on John Frusciante's problematic narcotic history, it's far healthier to report that Shadows Collide--the fourth solo album from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' guitarist--sports a thoroughly clean bill of health. Unencumbered by narrow rock strictures, Frusciante seems to have excused himself from the Chili's staple funk-punk approach (his recent listening preferences span early OMD, Van Der Graaf Generator, Roy Wood and Steeleye Span) and Shadows Collide is all the better for the change of scenery. Yes, there are nods to the parent band ("Song to Sing When I'm Older")more… and both Flea and Chad Smith are participating guests of honour, but this is Frusciante's show. While there are interludes of electronic Eno-esque oddity (the squall of static and synth choirs on "00Ghost27") this is mostly strident, neo-psychedelic rock begging comparison, vocally and musically, with some of Grant Hart's post Husker Du solo work; a song such as "Carvel" apes the pre-Gillan pomp-opera approach of early Deep Purple. Elsewhere, fascinating treatments (the electric seabird guitars on "Second Walk", the spin-dry vocal oscillations on "Regret") abound and Frusciante's love of the mellotron (flutes, choirs et al) lend proceedings an alluring antique appeal. Think of this as a spiritual halfway house between Candy Apple Grey and In the Court of the Crimson King. --Kevin Maidment
