  1. In Preliminaires, the Stooge King has put together a perfect soundtrack for a short, doomy stay in the Hotel Lautréamont.

    Pure crap! Iggy's "Metal Machince Music " or "Young Americans" Geti in an elevator and hang your self like Carridine would be more enjoyable. Will fill your collection only. Listen two it twice puke, and hope for the better. Full Review »

    The COOLEST Iggy record since the Idiot and Lust for Life.The man is a force and an original voice of American music...even if its in French! I love Hal Cragins production,Nice to hear interesting music that provokes Iggys creative side.Rocks pretty well too. Full Review »

    This album should not be rated in a way by comparing it to Iggy's previous work. Because if you expect anything like he had done before you may get a bit confused, but after taking some time to really get into the concept and the sound of this album, you will only be awarded and discover a new, tender and brilliant side of Iggy Pop.
