4.0 out of 5 stars SOLDIER, 26 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Soldier (Audio CD)
Iggy recorded three albums for Arista - this is in my opinion the best of the bunch.

What makes it so special is its quirkiness and this is down to the musicians and in particular, Keyboard player Barry Andrews. Andrews spent his early career with XTC and his playing is very reminiscent of his work on XTC's first albums - pumping, driven and highly original. Guitars are provided by Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols.

At this time, Iggy was in his post-Bowie phase and perhaps looking for a new direction. The result is an album bursting with strong, intelligent compositions, making this a great listen and a worthy addition to the Iggy Pop back catalogue, despite the fact that it was apparently a chaotic album to make with a lot of tension and bust-ups.

Don't pass it by - give it a go; I don't think you will be disappointed.
