This one is fierce, hard and bottom-heavy. The lyrics are head-on and it's a shame that some are buried in the glorious noise, as each word of wisdom from the Ig is a jewel of profundity no matter how crude, cruel or sarcastic.
It's the antithesis of his last album, Avenue B on which we found a fifty-plus Iggy bitching, crooning and moaning about mid-life loneliness with an acoustic guitar. He claims it was an brutally honest album. Maybe so, but this is the real ageless Iggy - primal, manic and yelping a tirade of insults at everyone and everything that deserves to die. We all thought Instinct was his heavy metal album, but this is the real deal. There is no lack of belly-laughs either!
From the thrashing opening track `Mask' ("You're wearing a mask, you look better that way") to the closing rant `V.I.P.' Iggy virtually regurgitates upon everything that's wrong with people, the music industry, and life in general. He hurls in every direction and no one is innocent.
On `Howl' Iggy is top dog, exercising his canine cacophony. It sounds like the Stooges jamming with Metallica. `The Jerk' echoes the sentiments of Blondie's "Rip Her To Shreds" ("Aw man, you're killin'me!").

I missed this when it first came out. Better late than never. GO FOR THE THROAT,... BEAT 'EM UP, ...LOST and.. MASK are some of the best hard driving Iggy tunes you will ever hear. TALKING SNAKE is an excellent dark and sinister tune. Strong and powerful band and great album.....IGGY.
This is his best since American Caesar, which is a high point for a man that has been involved in one of the greatest rock and roll bands in history. Iggy hands us a prime piece of Stooge pie and we should be grateful for that.

Beat Em Up is an amazing collection of aggressive hard rocking, thrashing gems. This is the best Iggy has ever sounded since Raw Power. This is the true follow up to Raw Power. Read morePublished on March 6, 2012 by Kevin Brock
THIS is what should've come out after Raw Power. Buy this, the first Stooges album, Fun House and Raw Power and you have the best of Iggy right there. Read morePublished on February 7, 2011 by Buffalohump
Iggy Pop-Beat Em Up ****
Beat Em Up is really an Iggy Pop album unlike any other he has released. More metal than anything that previously bared the name Iggy Pop. Read more
