Customer Review

on 5 February 2013
If you haven't heard Funhouse, just buy it. It is difficult to believe that any other rock band could produce an album such as powerful as this. There is an undiluted arrogance, desperation and humour in this record that reflects the lives of the people who performed it. This is amongst the greatest rock music in history. It hasn't aged a minute.
Funhouse convinces because, intentionally or not, there is a truth to it. The reason that this album's brutality cannot be compared to other rock bands (such as uriah heep commented on in other reviews) is because other groups music is "performance". This isn't an act.
To create the music of the first three stooges albums, Iggy, at least, appears to have led an extremely destructive lifestyle. This is particularly evident on this album. It is understandable that few albums have this power, who in their right mind would want to experience iggy's lifestyle to reflect and produce such music.

I think Funhouse is flawless:- the production; magnificent singing; Ron Asheton's chiming, echoey, ghost guitar; the group's collective performance; even the (u.s.) album design. I am pleased that Iggy has finally reaped the rewards of his efforts. He is a fascinating character responsible for five of the the best albums ever made. This is his masterpiece, The star rating should be at six for this one.
