Just in case anyone in 2006 was wondering where the planet's pre-eminent funk-rock group were heading next, the Red Hot Chili Peppers released a behemoth double album with the muscular name Stadium Arcadium – surely a title impossible to read without hearing it in a meaty, WWF ring announcer's voice. Half a decade on, and with new guitarist Josh Klinghoffer replacing John Frusciante, bassist Flea has cited "life and death" (that perennial favourite) as "a major theme" of their 10th album.

While not the entire score, which would be impossible to assemble on a double let along a single disc, the music contained herein from Stanley Kubrick’s stellar motion picture Barry Lyndon — that starred Ryan O’Neal in the only time he ever actually acted, as well as Marisa Berenson — is a mixed bag of the most delightful sort. With 19 selections on the CD — analogue recorded and remastered in pristine digital sound — the music here stands on its own as an eclectic yet moving collection of pieces that reflect the excesses of 17th and early 18th century cultural mores in royal courts, potato fields, and back alley dances. The main title theme is from Handel, his Sarabande, and is followed by Sean Ó Riada’s gloriously beautiful “Women of Ireland,” performed by the Chieftains, who dig in for a few more before being eased out of the mix by the British Grenadiers’ fife and drum corps.
On the Grateful Dead’s Anthem of the Sun the studio with its production work dissolves into live performance, the carefully crafted is thrown together with the casually tossed off, and the results are spliced together. The end product is one of the finest albums to come out of San Francisco, a personal statement of the rock aesthetic on a level with the Jefferson Airplane’s After Bathing at Baxters. To be sure, the album has its weak points, but as a total work it is remarkably successful, especially when compared to the first Dead album.
