EDITORS’ NOTES

How do you make a grand statement when you have nothing left to prove? On Post Pop Depression, Iggy Pop huddles with Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, Dead Weather’s Dean Fertita, and Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders. The results are wiry, muscular, and shape-shifting, much like Iggy himself. His unctuous cool drips all over slow-burners like “American Valhalla” and “Break Into Your Heart." “Vulture” sounds like Iggy reading a twisted campfire story. “Paraguay” and “Chocolate Drops” are as poignant as they are profane. Nearly 50 years from where it all began, Post Pop Depression proves that the punk pioneer can still cause a ruckus.

Dark & Fun & Sad & Cathartic & Angry & Great

So many different moods on this album, but all of them wonderfully musical and sometimes quirky. "German Days" & "Break Into Your Heart" bring a desert vibe, "Sunday" & "Gardenia" have a classic rock/Bowie-era sound, and "Paraguay" ends the album with a punch to the throat. In particular, the last three minutes of "Paraguay" are Iggy delivering an impassioned-old-man "Get off my lawn!" type rant that somehow fits perfectly together with the QOTSA-style rhythmic guitar outro. Any album like this comes with high expectations, and it's a nice experience when it delivers.

Match Made In Heaven

Ginger Elvis teams up with the Sad Veiny Torso. Never thought I'd see the day. 2 of my favorite artists/musicians/songwriters/singers of all time secretly made an album together? Yes please. The songs released so far sound promising as well, very laid back vibe, not too flashy or overplayed, just solid grooves. The unlearned may not "get it", but those of us that do already love it. Long live Iggy Pop.
