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.

Iggy recorded three albums for Arista - this is the second best of the bunch ('Soldier' being a real corker!).

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.

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

This album is a joy and it has aged well. Great playing, memorable songs, well produced, some with a mellow, reflective feel. An album you can listen to all the way through without skipping tracks, there just aren't any poor songs. Iggy's singing is as exhuberent as ever, yet also controlled and engaging. It is the first Iggy solo album I listened to and bought, back in 1982, which may help to explain why it is still my favourite, although 'Lust For Life' and 'The Idiot' run it close.

Like those cheesy new bank and car ads? Wanna know where the tunes came from? Feel old and depressed watching the last vestiges of alt culture being sold down the river? That's the New Amerikan Century for yer kids. Most of The Ramones are dead for crying out loud.. The once cool kids from college are now pimping for Saatchi. Its 'The End of the Century.'
This is the real thing, the raw material. Throw out that Shite Wipes/Stwokes quirky formulaic mediocrity. Buy this record, help Iggy gas up the Rolls Royce and go tooling around Miami beach in his old age, Lord knows he deserves it.. A f@ck off classic record from the days when. 'Its good in the jungle..'

Format: Audio CD
Iggy Pop's Arista Records era is not regarded as one of his classic periods - with some justification, it must be said. However, with 'New Values', he did start off pretty well. The sound of the album - quite lean, with undistorted guitars adding a metallic sheen to the ambience, care of ex-Stooge James Williamson - differs from the harsh sound of the Stooges, and the electronic textures of The Idiot and Lust For Life, and 'New Values' sounds both fresh and refreshed. 'I'm Bored' raises a chuckle, and 'Girls', with it's witty rewrite / steal from the George Gershwin standard 'Summertime', is similarly good. 'Pretty Flamingo', a single B side, is not the Manfred Mann hit, but an Iggy original that's pleasant enough. 'New Values' is not quite five-star Iggy, but gets very close, and is well worth spending time, trouble, and, of course, money, over.

New Values is not among Iggy Pop's most famous studio albums, but perhaps one of his most complete records. Check out New Values, African Man, Girls, Angel, Five Foot One and I'm bored - I am the chairman of the board ...... .
