Best John Frusciante Albums

For all of those rhcp fans out there + his solo work fans like me... This is for you guys!

The Top Ten

1 Curtains Curtains

This album deserves its place amongst the greatest acoustic albums of all time.

"It was just me sitting on a pillow, on my living room floor, with my back leaning against the couch."... awesome acoustic album. Meaningful and emotionally in parallel with every song. This is amazingly expressive and underrated - pianomushroom

2 The Empyrean The Empyrean

While Curtains and Niandra are both close seconds for me, Empyrean is an expansive aural experience that defines the idea of a story-less concept album. Musically astounding, Frusciante wows with musical and lyrical prowess, as well as composition as of yet unmatched by any of his other works.

Has really nice songs that make you feel like you're in a different universe! So innovative and artistic. - pianomushroom

3 Inside of Emptiness Inside of Emptiness

A very commendable set of tunes! Instrumentals are definitely great and his music directly expresses an effective objectification of 'eeriness'. Nice interpretation of emotion through guitars and lyrics. - pianomushroom

4 Niandra Lades & Usually Just a T-Shirt Niandra Lades & Usually Just a T-Shirt

Very dark, he was high out of his mind when he made this obviously. This was the album that introduced me to John's solo music... There is just something about his artistic expression in the songs from this album that sticks to you even though some of the singing is kind of eccentric. - pianomushroom

5 Shadows Collide With People Shadows Collide With People

Has more electro than guitar and has some nice songs like Song to Sing When I'm Lonely and Omission. - pianomushroom

6 The Will to Death The Will to Death

A very chill album still capturing his guitar skills, certainly less electronic. A very pleasant listen for the longest time. The most RCHP-ish, I think. Almost at level with "Inside of Emptiness". - pianomushroom

7 DC Ep DC Ep

A balance of trance-like music and meaningfulness. Great guitars and considering it only has four songs... it's a nice listen to identify John's music style. - pianomushroom

8 To Record Only Water for Ten Days To Record Only Water for Ten Days

Unique in its own way - pianomushroom

9 PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone PBX Funicular Intaglio Zone

Experimental, bluesy and electro. A very interesting listen. - pianomushroom
