4.0 out of 5 stars Preliminaires (Part 2) 13 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
In many ways, this album continues the theme of his last solo album (as the title indicates). While the previous release was mostly written by Iggy Pop, these tunes are mainly covers of French and English classics from long ago. Additionally, and probably much to the horror of The Stooges fans, it is even gentler. There is not so much as one track which could be considered rock.

Iggy Pop pretty much has two musical careers now... that of the lead vocalist of the hard-rocking "nostalgia" act, The Stooges, and that of a smooth "lounge lizard" with his latest solo releases. The differences between these two personas is radical. As a result, this is not an album many Stooges fans would like. Unfortunately, since the name Iggy Pop is forever tied to The Stooges, it will probably fly off the radar of those who would like it. On this album, his voice is pure velvet. It is for fans who truly appreciate all that Iggy Pop is capable of. If you really like his voice, here it is again, only in a totally different genre of music.

Like Preliminaires, it is 5-star material, but I gave it 4-stars due its severe brevity, clocking in at only 28 minutes. It seems as soon as you settle in and get comfortable with it, it's over. To remedy the this, I burned the 36-minute Preliminaires, followed by the 28-minute Après to a single CDR, making for a "new" hour+ album. No illegal downloads please... support the artist and buy these albums before you do it. Here's hoping more material like this will come soon, only longer and with better presentation.

Also hoping The Stooges stop their "nostalgia" act, playing the same songs over and over again. I've read they may re-record old early 70s material that was never recorded in the studio. Please, don't do that.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just punk 11 May 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Iggy shows he is more than just a punk rock throw back. His last album Preliminaire gave hints of what was to come, but this, is much better.

For me Arizona Dream was the best Iggy album. It shows an interest in other countries/cultures.

This album brings it all home and restores his artistic credibility. It's not a greatest hits or an attempt to rewrite his hits. It's his take on his favourite songs. And why not. Johnny Cash did it.

His singing in French (for me) is also good.

I think everyone should give this a go. He could so easily have recorded a bland middle aged punk rock album that no one really needs. Instead he did something rather more interesting and intelligent.

4.0 out of 5 stars over just too soon, too short 9 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a really nice album with Iggy in mellow mood again with some French chansons. I liked his almost stumbling delivery and maybe it was a bit reminiscent of Chet Baker. The whole set of songs also is really really short and is over before you know it. therefore four instead of five stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album 2 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been an Iggy fan since the Seventies and I have never been disappointed. When young, if I bought an album I liked, it would be played over and over again. I haven't done that for a while... until I put this CD on. I love it!

Sounds lovely! Very good action from Iggy, nice voice! I would recommend it also to Stooges-Iggy fans (like me). Brilliant!

2.0 out of 5 stars What is Iggy playing at? 28 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an awful record. Iggy's last solo effort Preliminaires was an engaging and challenging disc which I felt was similar to The Idiot in musical style. However, Après is a tedious covers album of French tunes and some middle of the road ballads. Iggy's croon has never sounded so out of place, I simply don't know why he thought this was a good idea?

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique! 27 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Continuing the french theme from his last album Preliminaires, Apres is a collection of covers this time - no original Iggy songs here. Of the ten songs, five are sung in french...the well known french track being Piaf's La Vie en Rose (interpreted here as per the Louis Armstrong version with trumpet). The other five tunes are sung in english and they include 'Everybody's Talkin' by Fred Neil (more famously sung by Nillson for the Midnight Cowboy movie)and the Beatles' Michelle...Another track covered is a Yoko Ono/Sean Lennon original 'I'm going away smiling'...

Iggy sings each song beautifully imo in his deep and distinctive baritone voice that has matured like a fine french wine and sounds better than ever......and the musical backing is perfectly complimentary and as a whole creates a wonderful 'ambience'. I much prefer Apres to Preliminaires, which I also think is an excellent album.

I will make a bold statment and say that some of these versions by Iggy could be the definitive ones for me in future....but its early days..

The downside to the album is the length of duration - its just short of 30 minutes long - although that is no different to the Beatles 'A Hard Days Night' album and Dylan's 'Nashville Skyline' - quality over quantity..

The cd comes with a booklet with lyrics and notes by Iggy on each tune..
