  • Summary: 'Weirdness' is the first album for the legendary rock band--which, yes, includes frontman Iggy Pop--since 1973. The remaining original lineup is supplemented by Minutemen bassist Mike Watt.

    These 12 tunes pack an almighty sonic punch. [Apr 2007, p.96]
  2. 70
    Both a big relief and a mild disappointment. [Mar 2007, p.90]
  3. The problem lies in the fact that The Stooges have nothing left to say.
  4. The band sounds crisper and cleaner than it should.
  5. It's a rather sad indictment that by the end of the album you almost forget its The Stooges gainfully toiling away.
  6. Where they were once a glorious mess, here they are simply a mess. [Apr 2007, p.114]
  7. Cringe-worthy lines are unfortunately rampant through The Weirdness’s (long) forty minutes.
