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...

Virgin records threw a lot of money at this album which achieved success on the MTV charts and the rock charts.

It is a commercial and crisp album produced by Don Was, focussing primarily on the subject of urban decay. It has some strong, catchy material which warranted a number of individual single releases from the album.

Brick by Brick is not Iggy's strongest album but it is a good listen and arguably one of his better albums of the era.

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.
