Few artists have wreaked as much havoc upon the music industry as Iggy Pop. In a career full of thrilling highs and lows that bottomed out well below sea level, Pop has hurled himself headfirst into nearly every wall he has ever encountered.
'Blah Blah Blah' marks yet another Iggy Pop comeback. As the punk era was swallowed whole by the more socially acceptable New Wave, he countered with his most solid collection of tunes, accompanied by a streamlined backing band that rocked with purpose but didn't destroy everything in sight. The breakthrough single 'Cry for Love', on which Pop is aided greatly by an incendiary guitar solo from former Sex Pistol Steve Jones, is nearly a ballad. Elsewhere, Pop tears through a rousing cover of 'Real Wild Child'.
