4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Iggy, 10 Feb. 2002
This review is from: New Values (Audio CD)
In my opinion this is definitely one of Iggy's better solo efforts although not generally classified as a classic. Recorded after his Berlin sojourn with David Bowie and teaming up again with his ex-Stooges partner-in-crime James Williamson this album has a slightly less punky edge than its predecessor 'Lust for Life' probably best described as Iggy's new wave album.
Nevertheless this still sounds like classic Iggy. You can really imagine Iggy bouncing around the stage in his own imitable way to tracks like 'Five Foot One' and the title track 'New Values', both of which are real stormers. The Doors-esque 'The Endless Sea' is reminiscent of the classic Stooges track 'We Will Fall' and on this re-mastered issue you get the original single from the album 'I'm Bored' with its clever wordplay chorus together with its B-side 'Pretty Flamingo' as one of the extra tracks.
If you're not really familiar with Iggy's solo work you can't really go wrong with this album. There's a good collection of styles here that work together to make a cohesive and easily listenable to album. A must for fans and a great starter for future ones.
