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.
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 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..'

'Billy is a runaway' - a really cool song on an album full of cool songs (except for 'The endless sea', which I think is tedious rubbish). Read morePublished on 8 Feb. 2012 by CLINT McGAVIN
