5.0 out of 5 stars Sucking sugar, plain and sweet 21 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
I feel I've contained my ire regarding the knee-jerk view of this album long enough. Almost from the moment it was released, supposed Iggy fans (pretenders all, I say) have been slagging this album off for being 'commercial'. What does 'commercial mean in this context? It means having a sheeny 80s hi-def production and a focus on melody above distorted guitars.

Wrong. The most 'commercial' thing Iggy could do is release another poor Stooges re-tread. His latter-day fanbase has been raised to think of him as merely 'A Godfather of Punk' and nothing else. Well, kids, Iggy was a Godfather of Punk Rock - and Punk Rock was about originality, not the formula it became, the formula called 'punk'. Punk Rock was more than just 3 minute, amateurishly played songs about politics. No, that was punk and boy was it boring, a slavish imitation of Punk Rock.

Consider the context for 'Blah Blah Blah'. Iggy has made the three Stooges albums, the massively underrated 'Kill City' ( although credited to Pop and Williamson, it's really a fourth Stooges album). There's no lack of melody on 'Kill City', nor are songs like 'Gimmie Danger' and 'Dirt' lacking in moments of yearning emotion expressed through melody either. Then the Bowie diptych of 'the Idiot' (genius) and the uneven but great 'Lust For Life'. The albums that follow are up and down, with moments of brilliance and lots of turkeys. For every 'Don't Look Down' and 'Houston is Hot Tonight', there are two stinkers.

Then Bowie covers 'China Girl' and Iggy gets lots of royalties. Good news! Tired of being a 'screw up' in record company eyes, Iggy records 'Blah Blah Blah', most of it written with Bowie, who co-produces the album with his sideman David Richards and Turkish multi-instrumentalist Erdal Kizilcay.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best David Bowie album never made?! 3 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the third album David Bowie and Iggy Pop co-wrote and co-produced. It's quite unlike The Idiot and Lust For Life, however, so will probably be most appreciated by Bowie fans.
This album was recorded at the same time as Bowie's own NEVER LET ME DOWN. Said album was one of his weakest efforts and he was rapidly losing credibility, so it's odd that he was quite happy to give away some of the best tunes he'd written in ages to his old mate Iggy. BLAH BLAH BLAH is the best Bowie album never made - just listen to the sublime ballad "Shades". The production is very understated for the period (unlike the very cluttered NEVER LET ME DOWN), and Bowie made several attempts to recreate this album's musical formula of rocky guitar mixed with programmed drumbeats and samplers - also used on his underrated 1986 single When The Wind Blows and the 1988 version of Look Back In Anger - not quite cracking it until EARTHLING in 1997! A lost gem!

5.0 out of 5 stars Deluxe Edition 28 Jun 2011
By Victor Preston VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have always loved this CD and with the Bowie input I see it as the final part of a trilogy with The Idiot and Lust For Life.
This should be reissued as a Deluxe Edition with all of the 12" remixes on the second disc.
The front cover with a tasteful Black and White photo of Iggy and David to attract a lot of people who want a 'new' Bowie CD.
This would be a top ten album for sure!
Blah Blah Blah

5.0 out of 5 stars Commercial but cool 26 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Beauty is in the Ipod of the beholder. This album divides opinion because its polished production is an anathema to the hardcore Iggy fans while its pop sensibilities are envied by Bowie fans. Here they got to see their hero hand over this slice of chart-friendly perfection whilst himself releasing the much more mediocre "Never Let Me Down" the following year. Those who criticise this album do so by claiming that it is a shameless piece of commercialism designed to make Iggy money, or that it is somehow shallow or too calculated. Even Iggy himself sometimes distances himself from this album in some interviews.

In my view however one must remember the context. In 1986 all artists were striving to make mega albums where almost every song was a single and glossy videos ensured that everyone could retire on the proceeds. So, in that regard, it is no worse than what Fine Young Cannibals or Dire Straits were doing. Moreover, as a piece of art pop it is very, very good.

Real Wild Child kicks things off and whilst seemingly a competent but throwaway cover it became Iggy's biggest hit of his career up to that point. Baby It Can't Fall is a catchy synth pop song where Bowie's backing vocals can be heard clearly. Shades is the second excellent single of the album full of ear splitting synth percussion and soaring guitar riffs. Fire Girl, my favourite track, is much more subtle however: whilst synths wash over you the slightest of sentiments yields a surprising power as he sings "Fire Girl, say you will...". The third and best single of the album, Isolation, then follows which, had Bowie released it himself, would surely have topped the charts.

4.0 out of 5 stars BLAH BLAH BLAH 27 Mar 2014
By HAYLING BOOK & MUSIC VENUE (HBMV) TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an album that has divided opinion.

It is one of his most commercial (if not THE most commercial) recordings Iggy has ever made but it is also one of his coolest.

The songs benefit from Bowie's input and Hugh Padgham's production ensures that the tracks appear crisp, tight and glossy.

'Real Wild Child' was the big hit from 'Blah Blah Blah', but there is a lot besides to recommend this album. I still enjoy it after all these years.

4.0 out of 5 stars An ok album, but made brilliant by just one song!
Arguably not one of the best Bowie/Pop collaborations but a not bad album from two of most flamboyant characters in the music industry. Read more
