Lust For Life, a classic Iggy Pop solo album produced by David Bowie and featuring the memorable raunchy title track, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00. Lust for Life is also available on CD for only $4.99 and is an AutoRip, which means it comes with a FREE MP3 version of the album.
The follow up to the Pop’s first solo venture The Idiot, Lust for Life finds its dirty fingers in the sonic cookie jar, as The Stooges front man exposes himself in the manner which he is most accustomed to in that band, and spills his darkest secrets and dirty fetishes on the sonic canvas. With the bizarre title track, with its memorable drum beat, and Iggy waxing about wondering where someone got lotion and speaking of taking it in the ear before, or the sexual metaphors of “The Passenger,” with its dark edged, yet bright, almost sing-a-long passages, to the spitting in the face of his detractors with “Success,” (which is almost like a twisted flipside to Bowie’s hit single “Fame”) to “Some Weird Sin,” Iggy still cuts like a knife, but is able to do so under a mid ’70s David Bowie production which finds him in a little bit more at the mainstream party, but still sitting at the juvenile delinquents table however. Lust for Life is a great darkhorse of an album during a time that was sandwiched in between the original proto-punk sounds of The Stooges and The MC5 and the right around the corner blowout success that punk music proper sported.
