iTunes Review

With his usual scrappy aplomb, Iggy Pop comes to terms with ‘80s-style glitz on Blah Blah Blah. This 1986 release reunites Iggy with old comrade David Bowie, who as co-producer steers things in a direction similar to his own Let’s Dance. The tracks are defined by cool keyboard gloss and relentless programmed rhythms, scuffed up in spots by ex-Sex Pistol Steve Jones’ guitar thrusts. Mature expressions like “Fire Girl” and “Cry for Love” suggest Pop has outgrown the drooling lust of his Stooges days. “Hideaway” and “Shades” are thoughtful swipes at trendy materialism. On the more manic side are “Winners & Losers” (an outraged howl crackling with sexual envy) and the title track (a revved-up screed ripping into everything from Shimon Perez to “petrified food”). “Real Wild Child (Wild One),” a thumping remake of rockabilly artist Johnny O’Keefe’s 1958 hit, serves as a reassertion of Iggy’s rebel credentials. Overall, Blah Blah Blah plays to the mainstream while offering enough subversive elements to please a committed Pop partisan.

Customer Reviews

Iggy, Ziggy, & Their Drum Machine

Even though this album is not in the style we expect from Iggy, I still find myself going back to it. There are more strong tracks than the "official review" lets on, among them: "Shades", "Fire Girl", and the title track. Definitely not for "Iggy Purists", but a lot of fun if you see it as a typical "80's Album". *P.S.: William Hung, fear not---your legend is secure...

Exertion

Just because it ain't wut yer used to--- I'd hate to have to do the same old thing for 30+ years.

There's a reason why many consider Iggy Pop the godfather of punk: every single punk band of the past and present has either knowingly or unknowingly borrowed a thing or two from Pop and his late-'60s/early-'70s band, the Stooges. Born on April 21, 1947, in Muskegon, Michigan, James Newell Osterberg was raised by his parents in a trailer park close to Ann Arbor, in nearby Ypsilanti. Intrigued by rock & roll (as well as such non-musical, monotonous, and mechanical sounds as his father's electric razor...
