Dark and stylish.

Iggy Pop's latest is a collection of ruminations on mortality, with Pop juxtaposing traditional romps of sexual abandon with stark feelings of vulnerability over the breezy course of its nine songs. Josh Homme makes his musical presence known early, and (in some cases, far too) often, leaving veterans of Stooges era Iggy hungry for the simple, ferocious attack of those halcyon days. Despite that, the album remains resolutely interesting, with memorable grooves and gruff, uncompromising vocals ... read more

What we have hear is just a solid rock record by one of the greatest icons in Rock music. His partners in making this album worthwhile. However, its not something I think I will have on repeat.

Veteran punk legend Iggy Pop teams up with modern rock renegade Josh Homme for a revivalist stoner/hard-rock experience on Post Pop Depression. While the iconic singer/songwriter seems to be up front on the record (and in pretty good shape), the other members of the newly founded group seem like little more than disposable pieces in the grand scheme.

Legend rock icon Iggy pop teams up with Queen of the stone age and Arctic Monkeys to deliver a congealed and varied rock record that takes inspiration from Josh home trademark dessert rock sounds and David Bowie.

When I heard that Josh Homme and Iggy Pop would be working together, I fell from my chair.

And I'm still in the floor.

This album is jawbreaking. 'Break Into Your Heart' hits you where you've never been hit before, 'Sunday' gives you just what you wanted form Josh Homme in an Iggy Pop record and 'In the Lobby' makes you feel like you're the coolest guy walking the sidewalks with earphones.

You really can't miss with this album. Actually, can you miss at all with Josh Homme?

It's depressing to wonder what could've been this and to know what actually it is. Iggy Pop translates the great rock vibe of past albums but never fully recovers of fresh ideas, it feels like I've heard this a million times before. The lyrics are kinda weird but nothing to be ashamed of, even though in a while they get like... wtf. The overall production feels right for a debut, BUT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IGGY POP, THE LEGENDARY FREAKIN' IGGY POP, SO GODDAMMIT WHAT IS THIS? IDK, it was pretty ... read more

This has Josh Homme's stamp all over it, but rather than the QOTSA, its what he brings to the table when producing The Arctic Monkey's that you hear here.
Iggy's best album in decades and up there with his Bowie era best
