Stadium Arcadium is a cranium idiom

The new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, Stadium Arcadium, is full of either really deep metaphors, or nothing but idioms. I'm leaning more towards the metaphors and symbolism, but sometimes I just wonder what the heck Anthony Kiedis is talking about. I'm not going to bring out any specific examples, because I don't want to bias anyone against the album, because this album is (in my opinion) the best RHCP album.

I feared for this new album, feared it would be even more mellowed out than By The Way was, but By The Way has moved All The Way to the bottom of the RHCP albums list for me, and this new album is my favorite. Blood Sugar Sex Magic is now my second favorite, then Californiacation and I'm not familiar with the other cds as well, such as Mother's Milk, What Hit's or One Hot Minute.

I love this new album, and highly recommend it. Maybe with some of these new albums by RHCP, Pearl Jam and Tool we'll see a slight come back to all music in general.
