Hello, everyone! ChiliPepperLuv here, and today, I'm writing a review on the new album, The Getaway. I am expressing my opinion on the artwork, my favorite song(s), and my overall impression on the album.
The artwork is rather fascinating. When I imagined what kind of artwork the Chili Peppers would use for their new album, I imagined something funky and extremely colorful, like on their 1987 album, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan. The artwork on The Getaway is certainly not what I expected at all. However, I must say that it is rather interesting. One fan theorized that the little girl and the animals represented each member, the girl was Anthony Kiedis, the raccoon was Flea, the bear was Chad Smith, and the Bird was Josh Klinghoffer. However, if the full artwork is viewed, there is a fox out in front of them. Apparently, the fox might actually be Anthony Kiedis, and the little girl might be John Frusciante, their former guitarist. I don't know if it means anything, but it is kinda fun to play with ideas. After all, art is in the eye of the beholder.
