5.0 out of 5 stars Sleazy Rock and Roll!, 4 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Funhouse (Audio CD)
To me, the classic Stooges albums are the first two records. "Fun House" being their greatest moment and one of rock's sleaziest statements ever committed to tape. For those born in the 70's or even later, you must remember what NYC used to be like before Giuliani. "Fun House" was recorded in an age when Times Square was full of seedy bars, porn shops, dirty old men, and junkies. This album, along with the band themselves, inhabited those warrens, and are lucky to have escaped alive. "Fun House" is quite possibly the sleaziest album ever recorded. It is not pretty, nor is it clean. Track 2 sums this album up perfectly. Loose. If this album had not been recorded there would never have been The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, or all the other numerous punk bands that have come our way in the last 30 years. The amazing thing about "Fun House" is that it sounds as if it was recorded yesterday. It has aged well and rocks harder than most bands today. A true classic that no rock fan should go without.
