He's been dirt, but--even at a ripe old 54--he don't care: so continues the career of punk grandfather Iggy Pop. Beat 'Em Up is a testament to the iron constitution of the truly dedicated hedonist--a caustic grind that spits blood and broken teeth on the idea of growing old gracefully, and sneers at the idea of using three chords when one chord sounds just dirty-fine. The opening "Mask" is a savage attack on "irony in place of balls", a furious Iggy taking pops at "fratboys in their shorts... sensitive smart-alec college graduates... critics fronting frantically in New York City..." and pretty much everyone else under the sun. But while it leads into one of the ex-Stooges' most frantic albums in living memory, all is not well on the quality-control front: representatively grimy blues-squall of "It's All Shit" and the rather self-explanatory "Ugliness" lack the vicious spark of good humour that's the very essence of gold-period Iggy, while the closing monologue of "VIP" ("When I wanna change a lightbulb / I don't do it myself/ I get a technician to do it") just smacks of inarticulately expressed anger . You can't help but think Iggy's heart is in the right place, raging against the shallow nature of celebrity culture; trouble is, Beat 'Em Up sounds like the work of a man that's too bitter for words. --Louis Pattison
I like this album.It has a comtemporary hard garage rock sound but still has Iggy and his base level primitivism running through it.
If you like 'rock Iggy' it's good.
Iggy's made some of my favourite records in his time, and this is superficially a pretty blasting modern hard rock album. Read morePublished on 7 Nov. 2007 by freewheeling frankie
