Given the option, I would have rated this at least 6 stars, despite the last track being something of a disappointment (we'll come back to that...)
First off, this 35 years old album still sounds utterly contemporary. So much wouldn't have happened without it, and none of the innumerable bands influenced by it have come close to equalling it.
Second, let's dispel the notion that this is a bunch of spontaneous stuff they just came up with in the studio. What it IS is their live set of the time, honed by regular gigs and (superbly) recorded live in the studio through a p.a. with no overdubs. Anyone who's heard the sadly no longer available "Complete Funhouse Sessions" will know that they arrived in the studio with these songs pretty much already worked out, and the multiple takes (over 30 on some songs) were just a case of nailing the best possible version. These guys weren't virtuosi, but they could lay down a murderous groove to rival anyone - and as for the singer...
Down In The Street is a mean, lowdown, almost funky opener, with some superb whoops and yells from Iggy. Loose (which took the most takes) is an awesome full on floor the accelerator three chord blast, with some great dynamics. TV Eye keeps up the energy level with a bit more structure. Absolutely superb, especially the bit where Ron Asheton just chugs away on guitar with Iggy's unearthly yowling over the top. And then possibly the greatest thing they ever recorded - Dirt. This is an epic ballad, alternating between a vicious, jerking riff and an almost plaintive section, with a cool guitar solo thrown in and Iggy snarling "do you feel it when you cut me?" with terrifying conviction.

This is the second (and final) Stooges album made by the original and best lineup. This is the one that was recorded in a brick-walled studio with the volume up to 11, never mind all that soundproofing sh*t, in an attempt to capture the band's incendiary live show. This is the one that features bop jazz sax weaving in and out of the band's crazed jamming all over Side 2. This is the one that culminates in the fabulous "LA Blues". This is the one that got them sacked from Elektra. This is the one sold diddly squat on its' first release, but went on to become one of the most influential rock albums anywhere, anytime. This is the one that every discerning rock fan should know and love. Buy it today, listen and marvel.

I remember my surprise when Nude & Rude - The best of Iggy Pop was released and there wasn't a single track from Funhouse on it. Surely this was The Stooges' finest hour - the one time when flawed (or maybe floored?) genius Iggy got everything right. Then it dawned on me, you just can't take a song from this album in isolation and clumsily wedge it into a 'best of'. This isn't so much a collection of songs but more a rock 'n' roll symphony in seven movements perfectly charting a trajectory from taut, muscular rock to pure primal noise.
The album opens superbly with the driving, rhythmic 'Down on the Street' more direct, more pounding than anything on the first Stooges album. Then they effortlessly go up a gear with Loose: an incredibly catchy bass line underpins a superbly aggressive guitar workout. The onslaught continues with 'TV eye', with its Stone Age drumming, ear splitting guitar, and Iggy's extraordinary primal scream. Where do you go from there? The album's centrepiece and one of the finest songs the Stooges recorded, 'Dirt'. It's a sexy, slow-burning, seven minute garage-blues workout - a million miles from the dull filler 'We Will Fall' on their first album. "Do you feel it when you touch me? There's a fire" recites Iggy.
Dirt marks the turning point between the more structured songs on the first half of the record and the perfectly orchestrated degeneration into pure noise on the second half. This starts with '1970' which picks up where TV Eye left off but turns into an infectious wig-out with wailing saxophone joining in as the band whip themselves into a frenzy.

Now dont listen to the below reviewer who spouts rubbish, this album may not be as tecnhically good as Sabbath or Zeppelin but for its influence and its down and dirty sound (rivalled only by Funkadelic or James Brown at the time) is not to be forgotten.
The album with 3 piping hot numbers (Down on the Street,Loose, and T.V EYE respectively) which hit you over the head with a guitar while iggy pop trips you up with a mic stand. T.V Eye in particular is incredible with its manic impactful opener of Iggy screaming "LOOOORRRRRD!" coupled with Ron Asheton's (contrary to the below reviews) incredibly streamlined and intense guitar riff, make this an iconic classic of 70's rock.
The album does stray from the afforementioned songs in the second half however although Dirt and 1970 are both psychadelic and enjoyable the other songs are crippled for me by the presense of the kingsmens saxophoner. This may well enhance the music for many but not for me.
But that aside this album is a classic and a must own to any self respecting Muso or Rocker. Iconic.
