Iggy Pop is a good singer and songwriter. He had some very good songs including Real Wild Child which was featured in the film Problem Child 1 and 2. One of his other good songs is The Passenger. He also covered the song China Girl which was a hit for David Bowie another good singer and songwriter who recently died.

This album has some superb rocking songs from someone who definitely deserves the term 'cult hero'. Probably best known nowadays for his collaborations with David Bowie, Iggy has amazed observers by surviving a performing career which looked certain to lead to an early demise (you think Ozzy Osbourne is/was a wild man?)
The early Stooges material doesn't really do it for me, although it is generally regarded as hugely influential. For me it's the stuff from 'China Girl' (Iggy co-wrote it with Bowie, and I for one prefer his version) onwards which really works here: the run of songs from 'Kill City' through 'Home' just gets better and better. 'Real Wild Child' was originally, incredibly, recorded by Buddy Holly. 'Cold Metal' is my favourite, its relentless, immaculate guitar riff just embedding itself into your head. 'Candy', where B-52 Kate Pierson shares vocals with Iggy.... This stuff rocks!
If only they'd been able to include his duet with Debbie Harry on 'Did You Evah?"...

This has everything for the dedicated Iggy Pop fan. Some I had forgotten and were great to revisit. Not a bad track.

Dont really know what to put about this cd but I LOVE IT! Iggy pops an acquired taste but once youve listened to him i think he becomes addictive.Its suprising how many songs you'll recognise, and didnt know that they came from iggy!!

As with Lou Reed, a dip in to the world of Iggy pop will always be fun, and depending on your age it will also be nostalgic or pleasantly educational.
