Hot/Cold Shower – Neo Punk IGGY POP Released His 19th Album ‘EVERY LOSER’ Today

6 January 2023

No retirement for the 75-year-old Stoogefather.

His new – 19th – LP, named EVERY LOSER is today.
It follows his acclamaid 2019 album Free.

Lots of star collaborators joined Pop in the studio, such as Blink-182’s
Travis Barker, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan,
Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard, Jane’s Addiction’s Dave Navarro
, and also the late
Taylor Hawkins, it became one of his last recordings

NME: “The Godfather of Punk stages a raucous return to his roots. Iggy is as feral – and furious – as we’ve heard him in years. An album that, even when it’s lyrically sincere, self-deprecating, or acutely aware, manages to stay larger than life. ‘Every Loser’ is a present-day primal punk resurrection from the only musician qualified to make one. “ 4/5.

TUTV: Unlike NME I only hear 4 filthy punk-Pop missiles (Frenzy, Modern Day Ripoff,
All The Way Down
and Neo Punk) out of the total of 11 tracks. In between 3 semi-rockers (Strung Out Johnny / Comments / The Regency), 2 ballads (New Atlantis / Morning Show)
and 2 otiose interludes make for a sonically unbalanced longplayer altogether. 7.5/10.

It feels like taking a hot/cold/lukwarem/hot/cold shower and therefore my ears/mind/body got confused. So I changed the order of the tracklist – from hot to medium to cold – and deleted the 2 interludes. Bingo, Every Loser sounds so much better. You should try it too.
