It kind of amazes me that this album is ten years old now, it still sounds so fresh and convincing!
And unlike anything that's followed it, it only has one duff track on it - Caesar - which is like Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music condensed down to 7 minutes (so even there he must get bonus points for not giving us a whole album of it!!).
On the ample plus side, this album combines some of the best parts of Iggy into one album. We have tracks that could have come from Brick By Brick (Mixin' The Colours, Beside You), tracks that could've come from his 'Berlin' period (Perforation Problems, Jealousy, Girls Of N.Y.), and tracks that can compare to classic Stooges for their primevalness (Wild America, Boogie Boy, and a masterful remake of Louie Louie).
In fact, this album contains so much 'classic' Iggy it could almost past for a 'Best Of' album.
So, please excuse the cliche, but do yourself a favour and buy this album for the best album Iggy's done in the last decade.

Not that I mean that in a condescending way but I never knew he had it in him, a friend lent me this and it blew me away! Its by no means a work of genius of genre defying its just very very good. An excellent rock n roll record: great songs well played. What more can you want? The quality over 75 minutes is staggering.
The last time I listened it actually occured that this is nearly a concept album with a lot of the songs refelcting emotions or needs:
The need to be a rebel on "Wild America"
Jelousy on er, "Jelousy"
Hate on er, "Hate"
Love on "It's Our Love" (OK it didnt take a cryptographer to work out the themes!) and "Beside You"
The urge to be free on "Highway Song!
The darkness inside "Sickness"
The temptation to give yourself over to the darkness "Perforation Problems"
Not finding a place for yourself "Social Life"
Those times when we get a bit pretentious and full of ourselves "American Caesar".
OK no idea what "Pleastic & Conceret" is about!
Damn-it-all Iggy Pop is distilling the human experience!
Its hard to pick a stand out, it just veers from one excellent song to another, maybe "Beside You" is the most suprising in that I just think "Iggy Pop wrote this?!"
The self indulgent title track aside and the forgettable last track and intro song aside this is just a parade of storming songs. Iggy is in fine voice too: rebellous and arrogant at times but bruised and hurt at other times. His band is on fire and the production is crisp too.
It even has a studio version of his "Louie Louie".
An excellent album, if like me you quite liked his work but doubted he could pull off a masterful solo album (without Bowie of course) then get this!

Wild, raw and pure anarchy. Anger and all that is associated with it will be found in American Caesar. I always have to dance and sing along to it. Most of the time I wear high heels while listening to Iggy, he is so highly charged with that special energy. Surreal!

Format: Audio CD
I don't know what it is but I find this album curiously disapointing. For a start it is just too long. Iggy offers us a 17-track double-album of material here but not all of it is up to scratch. 'Character' for example is only 1 minute of guitar plucking with some inaudible vocals and makes for a pointless opener. At the other end of the spectrum 3 of the tracks clock in at 6 or 7 minutes and are just too long. Furthermore, a lot of the rockers are really just standard fare, like 'Wild America', ' Mixin' the Colours', 'Girls of N.Y.' and others. However, there is some good songwriting to be found. 'It's our Love' is a promising ballad but is is spoiled by an echo-heavy production which makes him sound like he is singing in a supermarket garage. So too with 'Highway Song' which takes strong material and manages to make it sound indistinct and muddy. It is only when we get to 'Beside You' that we finally get a well produced single deserving of airplay.

The second half is a lot better than the first. 'Sickness' is a classic Iggy caterwaul. 'Boogie Boy' could have been a Stooges track and 'Perforation Problems' is, for me, the best song of the decade from Iggy with an absolutely killer melody and chorus. 'Louie, Louie' is also a success and Iggy so utterly so owns this cover version - even rewriting the lyrics extensively - that you are amazed he didn't write it himself. In many ways this song has been the theme tune to Iggy's whole life. The title track 'Caesar' is really just improvised lyrics over a guitar loop which is amusing for 5 minutes but is skipped a lot thereafter and another throwaway track finishes things off.

Format: Audio CD
this is one of the few albums that introduced iggy's music to me actually, apart from lust for life. it's long, statistically, it indicates that it's satisfying, you always want more, right? iggy's albums share one interesting feature, which is the very appealing final track! ha, regardless the previous tracks on the album, you can always have a beautiful ending. this album sounds like Bowie's outside, in many ways. iggy seemed to put out a rock drama just like bowie used to do.
all the songs are entangled with a heuristic yet clearly-defined theme,ends with a autobiographical monologue with beautiful beautiful guitar background.
just for the amount of effort iggy put in, for the last track, get it. believe me, it's very satisfying.
definitely iggy's second best album immediately after brick by brick.
