Amoeba Review

Iggy Pop finds the perfect collaborator in Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme on Pop’s 17th solo album. With Homme, QOTSA’s Dean Fertita and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders, Pop has a backing band worthy of a man who also fronts The Stooges. Homme gets Pop closer to his Berlin-era ideal as he has been in years, after dropping off from rock ‘n’ roll over his past few, loungey solo albums. “Break Into Your Heart” is hauntingly Bowie-esque, sounding not unlike something off his late friend’s last album, Blackstar, as Pop declares his intent on achieving the titular phrase like it’s a threat. On the flipside, “Gardenia” is a bit of smooth pop with a guitar effect akin to The Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” Homme and co. provide Pop with thumping grooves in “American Valhalla,” and rumbling beats and sick riffs on “In the Lobby.” Musically, it’s quite similar to Homme’s other band, and he provides warm backup vocals, but Homme and the rest of the band never upstage Pop, whose gothy cries on songs like “Vulture” command attention. Even as Pop has matured in style and has said he may retire from music, it’s great to hear him in classic form one more time as he rails against information overload over a saucy strut on “Paraguay,” declaring, “I don’t want any of this information, I don’t want you!” before shouting, “you take your fuckin’ laptop, just shove it into you goddamn foul mouth.” Nearly half a century after the first Stooges album and Iggy Pop still can shake you out of your coddled existence like no other.
