    • It must be a lonely place to be considered David Bowie's worst album by just about everyone, including the artist himself. As the last album before Bowie "rebooted" and formed the band Tin Machine, "N

iTunes Music Review - The Stooges

    • Another pillar of my musical foundations, The Stooges' first album is one those records whose influence far outweighed its popularity. Like The Velvet Underground & Nico, hordes of people who bought this album went out to form their own bands, and that's because it is powerful, driving, direct, and straight ahead rock and roll.

      Raw in its primitive assault, The Stooges foretold the coming of both the Punk movement and Heavy Metal. From Iggy Pop's nasally vocals to the brute force guitar work of Ron Asheton, this album was one of the first great examples of what can happen when a garage band gets a recording contract. Of course The Troggs, The Kingsmen, Blue Cheer, The Seeds, and others blazed that trail, but Iggy Pop is still recording today, and The Stooges themselves weren't one-hit-wonders.

      The album is not perfect, however; "We Will Fall" drones on for about eight and half minutes too long, and "Ann" feels out of place. Fortunately, the rest of the album rocks my world.

      Favorite Songs: 1969, I Wanna Be Your Dog, No Fun, Real Cool Time, Little Doll
