5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best rock album ever, 1 Sept. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funhouse [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
Iggy Pop. He'll soon get an OAPs bus pass and he still prances round the stage like he's 18 and loaded on ketamine. As much as he can run rings around any new musician, this album is the best he has ever produced.
Let's just get to the point here. This album created punk rock. This album invented Sonic Youth. This album was regarded by Lester Bangs as one of the best albums of all time. This album simply rocks. At its most primal, most fun, most dangerous. If you have never heard it, you are in for a real treat, as the new remastering job is superb, and the bonus tracks very enjoyable.
However nothing can beat the force of 1970, when the free jazz saxophone solo kicks in...the future is born.
I love this album-could write about it forever, but I'm not-instead I'm gonna go into the other room, crank up Down on the Street and throw myself around like an 18 year old on ketamine.

ketamine is a tranquilliser; you probably wouldn't be doing much jumping around on it. Just make sure you set the cd to repeat, cos you won't be able to get up and press the play button again yourself.

Kinda disagree about this album "inventing" Sonic Youth.
