Format: Audio CD
Let's be frank, Iggy Pop blows a little hot and cold. For every successful, well executed classic he does a couple of water treading rockers. Thankfully this is one of the former varieties. The quality of this album is due in no small part to the laid back and effortless production of Don Was who also produced the very successful Brick by Brick album for Iggy. This time however the mood is predominantly low key, acoustic and introspective rather than the heavier electric sound of its predecessors. Iggy is in his thoughtful intellectual guise ruminating on his mortality and musing on the end of his relationship with his 'China Girl' Suchi Asano. This is Iggy's great break-up album, his 'Blood on the Tracks'.

The album is peppered by occasional spoken segues ('No S**t', 'Afraid to Get Close' and 'She Called Me Daddy') which pursue these themes. These are little more than tone poems but they complement the general mood of the other tracks well. 'Nazi Girlfriend' starts the first of a number of songs about the procession of radically different partners the newly liberated Iggy explores. 'Avenue B' sees Iggy in a melancholic mood and is sung as a lounge singer with some delicate bongos adding a retro feel to the production. 'Miss Argentina' is another portrait of a girlfriend, again produced in an understated way. That is not to say that the whole album is slow paced or mid-tempo, a cover of 'Shakin All Over', 'Corruption', and 'Facade' are all played as more typical angry rockers. However, it is the slower ballads that really show Iggy's song writing at its best and the touching 'Long Distance' and 'Motorcycle' are just brimming with longing, aching regret and great lyrics.

Format: Audio CD
Iggy Pop's 1999 album Avenue B provides a pleasantly surprising mix of subtle ditties and more typical Iggy fare. As Mr Osterberg neared his 50th year (in 1997, in fact), it is clear he was adopting a (slightly) more reflective stance on life - particularly following his recent, more heavy album releases Brick By Brick and American Caesar. Having raised hell for the best part of 30 years, Pop appeared to be feeling that he should start to adopt a somewhat more studied approach to his music - as he says in the rather maudlin voiceover to the album's opening song, 'It was in the winter of my 50th year ..... I became more bookish'. In fact, Avenue B contains, for me, Pop's most refreshing and inspiring set of songs since Lust For Life.

Despite the more reflective style, however, Avenue B contains its fair share of expletives (even having an album cover warning 'PARENTAL ADVISORY - EXPLICIT CONTENT' - bizarre!) and its quota of controversial titles, none more so than that of the brilliantly dark (and tongue-in-cheek) song Nazi Girlfriend. There is, however, an underlying theme of yearning for romance (and even family life) in many of the songs, perhaps reflecting the fact that Pop had recently remarried again. In this vein, Miss Argentina, Long Distance, She Called Me Daddy, Motorcycle and the title song are great examples of Pop at his most subtle, both musically and lyrically. All is not sweetness and light, however, and the other standout songs Corruption and Facade have a more typically heavy Pop sound to them (the latter appearing to refer to Pop's own increasing difficulty in maintaining a rock star image). He even manages to have a decent go at an up-tempo Spanish salsa, in the song Espanol, and also delivers a solid version of Johnny Kidd's Shakin' All Over.

Overall then, an interesting mix of styles, in what is an impressive collection of songs.

A very personal and sometimes sad account of Iggy's relationships with women. Love this CD.
