5.0 out of 5 stars Not a one-trick dog 8 Jun 2009
Format:MP3 Download
If you are expecting Skull Ring or The Stooges, don't buy this. And don't bitch about it either. If that's what you want to hear, just put those albums on and be happy there's so much of it. It's about time we heard more of the other side of Iggy Pop... the part where he can write intelligent lyrics and back it up with strong musical content.

Preliminaires was written, and in some cases, sung for the French, where Iggy has his biggest following. Pre-release hype claimed it be Iggy's first jazz album. Well, yes, there's Euro jazz here, but there's also plenty of rock and lots of acoustic work too. And perhaps most importantly, some of the most unusual lyrics ever recorded: premeditated, yet sounding completely spontaneous as the finished product.

No, this is not The Stooges or Skull Ring... this is utterly different material for Iggy Pop. Listen to the samples to get an idea. It will give you the gist, but remember, those are 30 second excerpts that do not give you the complete picture. Listening to the complete tracks in complete album form leaves you wanting for more in the future and wondering why a project as great as this was not done sooner.

It's very short; clocking in at 36 minutes with flimsy packaging. This is reflected in how inexpensive it is. But that does not deminish the overall impact of this most different of Iggy Pop releases, something I hope there will be more of in the future. Highly recommended to those who can appreciate ALL the talent that Iggy Pop has... this man is no one-trick-dog.

5.0 out of 5 stars dont fear change 7 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
excellent , probably closer to Iggy's true musical inspiration at present , rather than churning out rehashed stooge rebel screams of his youth for the kids , still a rebel but an intelligent , introspective rebel with dry wit , and sure he's right , were all fu......d

5.0 out of 5 stars Preliminaires 22 April 2010
By Kitmac
Format:Audio CD
Looks as tho' Iggy's grown up, this album was a total surprise, a very pleasant one, albeit a bit short so deduct half a star if possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 25 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Iggy's voice is perfect for French, very seductive, this is a great album and different to his usual styles, having said that, he doesn't really have any one style as I am learning, there's more than one Iggy for each decade. Listen to his BBC radio 6 program to learn more!
