5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection!! 5 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
One of my favourite albums, each track has a different format and sound, which can be a bit disappointing if you just want Iggy rocking, but I love it! From the opening track "Home" through some slower more melodic tracks, the pure pop of "Candy" and the heavy rock of "I Won't Crap Out", there is nothing here that is sub-standard. If all you need is rock, then this may not be the best Iggy album to buy, but if you want some fun with it then give it a go!. I'm on my third copy of the cd now, I've played the others to death...

4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Strong Tracks 9 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Despite its flaws this is still a major release for Iggy and it got him enough brownie points with his record company that he could threafter afford to be more experimental and hardcore on other albums. The record is very well produced by Don Was who has a natural ear for a hit and manages to find at least half a dozen strong tracks from Iggy's rough demos. It is however an album of two parts with the first half being the better. 'Candy', 'The Undefeated' and 'Moonlight Lady' are rousing anthems which are all clear singles and 'Main Street Eyes' is good too. 'I Won't Cr*p out' and 'Butt Town' are rather throwaway though.

A needless cover of 'Something Wild' starts the second half but a trio of album fillers really dilutes the quality. Just when you think they are all starting to sound the same though the album picks up towards the end with the excellent Slash collaboration 'My Baby Wants to Rock'n'Roll' and the worthy title track 'Brick by Brick' (can you guess what he ryhmes brick with?). The album then had the excellent movie theme 'Living on the Edge of the Night' tacked on at the end (from the film Black Rain which came out before this album was released) and hey presto, you suddenly have an album with 7 or 8 oustanding tracks which makes it a top 5 Iggy record. The record is notable for some of the most unexpected and frequent swearing I've heard on a mainstream LP but it is for the most part good natured and fairly humorous. However, one wishes that a few more fillers had been sacrificed to maintain the depth of quality. With 10 tight tracks it would have got to number 1 but as it is it is by no means a dispensible Iggy record as some suggest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Iggy Pop's Bid for Mainstream Recognition 21 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
For all his obvious talents, Iggy Pop has never quite found a commercial niche--and this 1980 release was his most significant bid for mainstream recognition. At the time, BRICK BY BRICK received considerable critical and popular attention, and several cuts enjoyed a great deal of airplay. But twenty years later the failures of the release are all too obvious.
There are a lot of good cuts here, but the trouble is that very few of them actually sound like Iggy Pop; instead, they sound like songs that Lou Reed, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen might have done, and done quite a bit better. "Candy," a duet with Kate Pierson of The B-52's that charted, is enjoyable enough but it is essentially a throwaway; probably the best cut from BRICK BY BRICK is "Moonlight Lady," a completely unexpected and remarkably beautiful ballad.
Perhaps the single worst flaw in BRICK BY BRICK is that the sound becomes repetitive. The first half of the recording is interesting, often intriguing, and it leads you to wonder what Pop is building toward. Unfortunately, the second half of the recording is merely more of the same, and after a certain point you begin to feel that you've heard it all before earlier on.
While there are things to enjoy here, BRICK BY BRICK is neither hardcore Iggy Pop enough to please his cult fans nor slick enough to make much of a wave in purely pop circles. If you're determined to have everything that Iggy Pop has done, go ahead--but don't expect too much from this particular title.

5.0 out of 5 stars it deserves six stars!! 23 Nov 2004
By RX100
Format:Audio CD
i have nothing to say really, after all this years, it remains iggy's most memorable album.
it marks an opening of his new era, it showed hope and health in a natrual way. unlike instinct and blah, they are also healthy ones, but they are sythesised. this one contains a diversity of songs, fantastic performance. if you are lucky to see the show for this album, kiss my blood, it's more trhan great.
he then changed his appearance, longer hairs.
two best iggy;s own albums, brick and caeser.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iggy, still trying to find his Home 22 Feb 2004
By Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think most will agree that Iggy is at his best when being himself and not trying to conform to popular music and become successful in the commercial sense. I think deep down though, despite being revered for being the opposite, I think he wanted to be popular in the MTV scene (ie "the mainstream"). "Party" & "Blah Blah Blah" are probably the other obvious ones, but this was Iggy's last attempt to put out an album that will make him more commercially popular, though a kind of belated attempt. All the stops were pulled out, the big guest stars, etc. In the end it is pretty good, but as usual Iggy doesn't get the credit he deserves from the mainstream. "Candy" was (and is) so popular that the people who he was trying to win over now laugh him off as a one-hit wonder. After this one, I think the next album was American Caesar, which was just, as i see it anyway, him realising that being successful isn't always about financial success. Actually in track 2 here, he says "You and I are not huge mainstream stars/But unlike them we're really what we are". Iggy is no fake. His struggle to try and understand what the point of all this is, is the same as a lot of us. This isn't the wild Iggy that tore up the music world and left it in shreds with The Stooges, this is a grown up Iggy. Both are great Iggy's though.

This album isn't as cheesy as Blah Blah Blah, and it's much more honest. It gets a bit harder & looser as it goes and the climax is definitely track 12 and 13 (My Baby Wants... featuring Slash on guitar and then Brick by Brick). The subject (of the album) is basically just commenting how messed up society is, and dealing with it. He leaves us with hope though, with the 2nd last track (Brick by Brick). I think it was appropriate that the album was named after that one.

It's also much more consistent, approaching the consistency of The Idiot or Lust for Life. Other albums, even the great ones like New Values, have a few turkeys, but this has none, which is surprising considering there are a lot of tracks compared to his other albums. It's very well written, it flows very well and the social commentary is sharp and on the money (and still relevent).

This is very good. I think with Iggy there's always more going on than meets the eye. Maybe I am way off the mark in my review, but this is just what I got out of the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of Iggy 26 Sep 2005
By James D. Spackman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Some people might bash this cd due to it's calmer nature and such but I personally enjoyed this album. While this is by no means Raw Power or Fun house, this is still a pretty good album. Iggy shows of his talents as a song writer here as evidenced by such songs as mainstreet eyes and home and a few others. While this is by no means his best stuff it is enjoyable and has a few classic Iggy songs like Candy and Home, also my baby likes to rock and roll is a nice song that is similar to Iggy's roots. Featuring guest apperances by Kate peirson and slash this is a very enjoyable album that I would suggest getting AFTER you have explored some of Iggy's other stuff don't just get this after listening to The stooges or you will be dissapointed. All in all a good album and reccomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Somehow Overlooked... 5 Aug 2005
By Walter L. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Next to "Lust For Life" and "The Idiot," I rate this, obviously, the 3rd Iggy masterpiece. Of course, art is highly subjective, but this recording kicks booty. The songs are well written, raw, melodious, and the guitars RIP on almost every track. If you appreciate GREAT rock, you must do yourself a favor and get this cd! If your an Iggy fan and have not heard it, or a new Ig junkie, what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Iggy is not for the squeamish 26 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you don't like his profanity-laced ranting, then this album isn't for you. However, if you like honest, butt-kicking rock 'n roll this is your album. Candy is a great tune (Always like Kate Pierson's voice). Home, Buttown, and My Baby likes to Rock and Roll are classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make no mistake, this is Iggy 12 Dec 2000
By Richard Harrold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After a period of quiet, Iggy Pop returned to harass mainstream rock and roll will more of his energy and original lyrics to both ridicule and laud America's youth as well as the corporate mentality of older Americans. Make no mistake, this is Iggy to the core.
Opening with the rousing "Home," Iggy gets your heart pumping and the blood flowing with such a tightly orchestrated song that the guitar licks nearly slice through you. If this opener doesn't get you jumping right off the bat, then you've overdosed.
And Who but Iggy could sing a love song of devotion with a refrain proclaiming his sincerity and loyalty with the words "I Won't Crap Out."
The anthem "The Undefeated" is both a reference to the Hollywood group of actors from the late 50s and early 60s as well as a comment on the drug addled youth of upper income America lolling around in eternal ennui.
But the song "Something Wild" is a truly chilling rant on the wonderfulness of hedonism, a reminder of our base animal insticts that while many of us sober up from our wild past, the animal is merely sleeping -- it has not been eradicated.
And of course, there has to be that song that has Iggy just going berserk, and that one is "My Baby Wants to Rock and Roll" which has a decent appearance on guitar with Slash (you know, that Guns and Roses dude). It's quintesssential Iggy.
Oh yeah, there are other songs on the CD, and they're all great too. If you're not exhausted after listening to them, like I said, you've OD'd.
