and i still feel more ripped off than i've ever felt in my life. oh dear god.
bloody radiohead fleecing their fans!
they did. its horrifying.
IS KILLING EVERYONE!
I've only heard this song and maybe one or two others, but I'm taking the educated guess that it's nigh-on unlistenably poor?
thats one of the better songs
It's just a sub Iggy Pop album. It's nowhere near as good as 'American Caesar', let alone any of the Stooges first three albums
Let's not get carried away here
there's a lead guitar that sounds really out of place whenever it comes in.
Iggy's big mistake was to try and sing like 20-yr-old Iggy, but his voice has changed so much it doesn't work. If he'd used his "I'm a serial killer" voice on this record it would have sounded plenty better.
is undeniable proof that god doesn't
I like My Idea Of Fun and the cheesy You Can't Have Friends song even though the lyrics are fecking awful.
totally, normally I hate saying this about old bands, and live they have been AMAZING, but I think I paid 16p or something on amazon and still felt gutted, wish I had never heard it...
i've ever bought, including skapunk, numetal and stanger.
how much advertising space Virgin had to buy to get this review: http://www.nme.com/reviews/iggy-and-the-stooges/8278
I think that Mike Watt fits in superbly, live at least. He's so low in the mix on the album you can barely hear him. Not that even the majestic bass of Watt could rescue what is a bunch of shite songs. The recording sounds fine, it's just the songs are shit and Iggy seems all over the place.
Anyway if this crappy album helps them to continue touring the world playing the ace old songs i'm all for it. Ron and Scott deserve to make some money. I was listening to an interview on Watt's website and apparently Scott was working on a building site before the reunion happened! There's a man who should be playing drums.
where his dick is like a tree?
Party was mildly ok...and that Candy, Candy song with b-52's chick was good... zombie birdhouse was terrible and that's when I stopped buying ig records. What, 25 years ago...meh. That record he did with Steve Jones...? bad, but not as bad as that montrosity....
Everything I've heard off The Weirdness is Sooooooo bad, it makes me question whether or not the first three are as great ...as they are.
