    The stitched together samples, drum machine splatters, and foreboding synthesizers come across like the soundtrack to a particularly quick edited and terrifying lo-fi horror flick.

    Outsides is yet another strange installment in Frusciante's unabashedly weird and sometimes uncomfortably naked evolution as a solo artist.

    Unfortunately, “Breathiac” and “Shelf”, while certainly not bad tracks, fail to truly capture the momentum and impressive layers of “Same”.

    The three-track EP Outsides doesn’t exist as much in the melodic void as his straight acid work, instead choosing to teeter on the very fringes of free-form guitar and schizophrenic analog synth bombardment.
