There is a connection to the crudeness of a decade earlier rock n roll with a good dose of Brit 70s production (in the hands of Bowie). Is it a coincidence that Pop's most pop-ular albums are produced in collaboration with Bowie? Check here at Amazon and you'll see that 'The Idiot' and this are on the top of the list in relevance. You'll specially like these 2 albums if you enjoyed Bowie's Young American, Low or Station to station. Pop's voice is excellent in these slap-gated reverb drenched guitars, harmonious choruses (with Bowie being very prominent, by the way) and slightly avant-spacy sounding production. Good rock album with seemingly simple tunes that reveal more hidden detail after a some spins.

The record speaks for itself having cult status. This is just the latest reissue of a classic – being yellow vinyl though. Having bought the LP I can only say that surely no numbers skip, this as opposed to what can be read elsewhere – this has to have something to do with the delivery that went wrong. On the other hand if one expected an unusual better sound - see other review referring to a better audiophile quality - then it is rather basic and the recording level (the volume) - as other have referred to - seems a bit lower than e.g. Springsteen's latest LP, Chapter and Verse, (but not much) or Delicate Sound of Thunder. Could be that this LP is not made from the original tape and that it is a "dump from a digital recording" – can only confirm that an audiophile quality seems not to be the case. However, for sure it is not unlistenable...as a minimum it is as good as a digital recording. Go ahead and enjoy! It is Iggy it is gooood.. !!

As others have noted, the 4Men with Beards 180G vinyl reissue is almost unlistenable. For such a great album this is a huge shame. I'll find some vintage Iggy to buy and stay away from the 4Men from now on...

This is one of two Iggy's collaborations with David Bowie, and just after his split with The Stooges, and before the whole 80s electronica-meshed mumbo jumbo. It's a perfect time to catch the Godfather of Punk. It's got the same raw aggressive edginess from before, blended with the whole freedom of venturing out further. Bowie's presence couldn't be more accommodating. Offering his signature style of weaving melodies and direction. Basically single-handedly replacing The Stooges entirely. This is classic, essential Iggy Pop. YOU MUST BUY THIS.

EXCELLENT album! I consider this to be Low, Volume 1.
Perfect companion to Bowie's Low, Volume 2.

A few too many beers on a freezing night many winters ago, some money was put into a jukebox in an East Village bar so we could dance to "The Passenger " and scream a conversation into each other's ears. This album will always have deep roots in my heart and, along with that faded memory of a cold January night in 1996, will live on forever.

Bad pressing

I've read some bad reviews of other Men With Beards vinyl releases and sadly it's true for this one. It sounds really muddy.
Great album though...but I guess we already knew that.

This is a truly classical record for any punk or music lover. Featuring hits such as "Lust For Life" and "The Passanger" it includes further highlights such as "Success", "Tonight", which make it a really upbeat album, I deeply enjoy this dude's music!!
