Coke Machine Glow

Stadium Arcadium is the first post-Blood Sugar Chili Peppers album that actually sounds like it was reasonably fun to make; a source of mindless summer entertainment that people really shouldn’t feel ashamed to enjoy.

NME

If you condensed ‘Stadium Arcadium’ down to 10 tracks, you’d be left with something special – that’s what MP3 players were made for.

Pitchfork

Stadium Arcadium can't help but grow as distended as the name suggests, revealing a band too proud to merely play the game they've already solved or use the added space to risk a less worn path.

A.V. Club

Where in the past, Kiedis' vocals have given the band's sound its forward momentum, on Stadium Arcadium, they're the least relevant part of the equation.

Some of Red hot chilli peppers best song of this record but as a whole feels flat and too long.

One of the most pleasant surprises in this album is that there are plenty of well crafted slower songs on this album. The upbeat songs are definitely pleasers to RHCP loyalists, but more times than not, Kiedis' rapping feels so uncomfortable.

Favorite tracks: Snow (Hey Oh), Stadium Arcadium, Especially In Michigan, Wet Sand, Turn It Again
