Our take

by Angus

Recorded in just eight days with David Bowie in Berlin on no sleep and a cocktail of drugs, booze, and whatever else was around, Lust For Life absolutely teems with gruelling rock vigour. Backed by an expert band that lacked the primal thump of The Stooges but brought another kind of energy to Iggy’s performances, Lust For Life is a steamrolling collection of raw rock and roll.

Whilst Bowie was heavily involved with the making of Lust For Life, his influence isn’t quite as profoundly felt as it was on Pop’s first solo album ‘The Idiot’. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Iggy sounds free and easy on Lust For Life, having cast aside the introspection and self–analysis of ‘The Idiot’ to produce a mostly carefree, joyous assembly of tunes. There are of course the heroin–addressing ‘Tonight’ and ‘Turn Blue’ which deal with the musician’s struggles with addiction, but the majority of Lust For Life plays as a celebration of survival against odds.
