Editorial Reviews

The relentless, driving drums and thunderous bass of the opening title track are the magic components that make it the best song Iggy Pop ever recorded without the Stooges. They're also why this is Iggy's best solo album--which also includes the ominously upbeat "The Passenger," with its hilariously ennui-filled, sing-along chorus ("La la la la la la la la la..."). As with Pop's first solo album, The Idiot, David Bowie has his hands all over the proceedings (if not somewhere else as well) as the producer, songwriter, and general overseer of Iggy the popstar. The record reached 28 on the U.K. charts. Of course, as the jagged, dark guitars on "Sixteen" and "Neighborhood Threat" make clear, Iggy's version of pop music is anything but conventional, and anything but bland. "Some Weird Sin" ("That's what I want...") could have been Iggy's theme song in 1977, heavy with innuendo and a dangerous joie de vivre. --Percy Keegan

Product Description

Iggy looked beyond the darkness of The Idiot and found the desperate need to rock and revel on Lust for Life (1977). He triumphs with that pounding title tune; The Passenger; Sixteen; Success; Some Weird Sin; Turn Blue , and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars The return of Iggy Pop October 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After the shadowy sound of Iggy Pop's first post-Stooges album, The Idiot (which was as much as an effort from producer David Bowie as an Iggy Pop album), Lust for Life is the return of Iggy Pop, the crude social misfit. Iggy and Bowie, who is again producing, realize that the jagged, brutal sound of Pop's former band is impossible to reproduce, but Bowie and the backing band can still fashion some thumping rhythmus and hard-edged riffs and let loose the memorable uncouthness which made the Stooges-era Iggy Pop infamous. So what does it mean to be Iggy Pop in the late 1970s? First of all, Iggy is back to being ugly, deviant and gross and loving it all. Songs such as "Sixteen," "Some Weird Sin" and the title track ("I`m just a modern guy/Of coarse I`ve had it in the ear before") highlight the gross-out sexuality of Iggy`s persona. Secondly, the first to get the infamous Iggy Pop spit in their faces are those who accused him of selling out by collaborating with Bowie on a more polished sound. The sly sing-along, "Success," and the tongue-in-cheek cover image are pointed at them. But most of all, Iggy was about having fun in late 1977. After the vampiric feel of The Idiot, Iggy and Bowie seemed to realize that, like the Rolling Stones or MC5, there is little reason to listen to Iggy Pop and not feel pumped and listeners can attest the minute they press play and hear the title song's thumping drum beat and driving bass line and can't help but strutting like a fool. Lust for Life undoubtedly has a recipe and authenticity set to Iggy Pop back on the right track as one of the rock and roll's most enjoyable rebels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iggy's Best Solo Record March 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Note that I said solo record. Iggy of course created a revolutionary sound with the Stooges before flaming out in a vortex of drugs and madness. LUST FOR LIFE is volume two of the resurrection of iggy Pop under the tutalege of David Bowie and shows Iggy regaining his old strength.

LUST FOR LIFE is packed with great songs from the barreling title track (I crack up every time I hear it on a cruise commercial, do they know what they are selling?) to the heroic melodrama of FALL IN LOVE WITH ME. Stellar tracks include SUCCESS (Iggy and company joking about the trappings of stardom), THE PASSENGER (maybe even better than the title track) and NEIGHBORHOOD THREAT. The music is closer in spirit to 70's Rolling Stones or Bowie's ALADIN SANE than the proto-punk of the Stooges.

In my opinion this release is the highlight of Iggy's now long solo career. Though he would have a number of othe good songs over the years, he would never release an album as consistant as this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funhouse of an album August 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
After producing the highly successful and equally strange "Transformer" for Lou Reed in 1972, David Bowie decided to get back in the producer's chair for Iggy Pop (who he had worked with previously on several projects).

The fun starts immediately on the now well known romp of the title track (used in several tv commercials and the movie "Trainspotting"). The lyrics are wild, weird, and full of strange sexual innuendos: "Of course I've had it in my ear before"??? or "Hey man, where'd you get that lotion?"

The fun continues with the raunchy riff of "Sixteen" in which he sings about his hunger for a sixteen year old in leather boots..... staying true to theme of the album I suppose.

Basically, the lust-fused fun never lets up (especially on the hilarious and sarcastic "Success" which is my personal favorite).
"Here comes my car, here comes my chinese rug...."

Overall, another classic recording from the best decade in rock music history... Iggy style.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one and only November 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Andy Warhol said he could never understand why this guy didn't make it big. But he's the opposite of a flash in the pan. Forty years later he's still going ballistic. If you heard the recent interview with Terry Gross where he ascribes his stellar health despite all the drugs to sex and chi gong, and ranks on the Hilton sisters for their suburban epitomization of wannabe stardom, you know with James your dealing with the real thing. Passenger, Neighborhood Threat, Lust for Life--this guy still sets the standard for raw power on stage. A rock and roll classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic pop album January 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Most people are probably know "Lust for life" as "the song in trainspotting" or "that song in the gap ad", definitive proof that Iggy Pop was 20 years ahead of his time. But Lust of Life is also the name of his brilliant second album. Every song on this album is ridiculously overblown, laughably melodramatic, and absolutely perfect. This album is the epitome of 70's pop, even though it did not get the recognition it deserved. So if you want to listen to the song "Lust for life", don't buy it from some compilation, buy this album and get 9 brilliant pop songs instead of just one!

"Lust for Life," which was released the same year as "The Idiot" should have been even more successful than that record, which was Iggy's first taste of commercial success. This album brings back the hard-rocking, swaggering tendencies that Iggy parlayed with the Stooges, although while the music isn't quite as chaotic, it's still a damned good record. The Jim Morrison influence also seeps through a lot on "Lust for Life." Tracks like "The Passenger," which Iggy wrote based on a Jim Morrison poem articulates the vision of searching that many of Iggy's best tunes are built on. The rest of the tracks rock out and make you think, as well. "Success" is about as ad-libbed sounding as an Iggy Pop song could be, but it's still a great piece of work, as is the title track, "Sweet 16" and the others. It's good that "Lust for Life" is finally getting the audience that it deserved so many years ago. Check this record out, you won't be disappointed.
