Berlim também engrandeceu Iggy! Não mais a auto-imolação, mas sim a auto-reflexão!

Ian Curtis killed himself after listening to The Idiot, maybe if he had listened to this one, he'd still be kicking it.


Now the Idiot is a good album, but this one just kicks with life, Iggy's on fire and the band are just fanning the flames. Falls apart slightly near the end, but ends with a good closer. Almost perfect

Such a cool dirty sounding album packed with good songs. Lust For Life and The Passenger been the 2 best.

One of my favorite albums. Bowie's influence is all over the place. Super engaging and energetic. Love the underground feel to it.

From Brad1770 03/06/2018 12:02
David Bowies talented fingerprints are all over this album , lets face it the track 'Tonight' may as well be a Bowie track it sounds so much like The Duke . Bowie produced this album as well as composed much of the music

Overall this is a real mixed bag , 'Lust For Life ' and 'The Passenger' are both 100/100 tracks sitting comfortably as all time classics . 'Tonight' is good , the rest is average especially the last 2 tracks which both go for 6 minutes and don't work at all

Am I the only one who finds track 2 'Sixteen' creepy ? Check these lyrics out

"Sweet 16 in leather boots"
"Show you my explosion sweet 16"

Bowie-esque

From Sandrof1969 02/15/2018 20:11
A me è sempre parso che tutto in "Lust for life" fosse pensato per raggiungere il successo e che niente fosse lasciato al caso: le percussioni dell'iniziale title track, dal vivo, avrebbero dovuto fungere da introduzione all'entrata in scena di Iggy, "Sixteen" avrebbe accontentato i vecchi fans degli Stooges, "The passenger" ( unico brano non scritto da Bowie, per altro ) era la formidabile hit, "Turn blu" sarebbe servita per mettere in risalto le doti istrioniche del cantante e "Success" spiegava tutto fin dal titolo. Missione compiuta; l'unico appunto che ho sempre fatto a questo disco è che non si capisce se sia un album di Iggy prodotto da Bowie o uno di Bowie cantato da Iggy...
