Iggy's first 2 solo albums are as big a part of the legendary Berlin Years as Bowie's trilogy. Everything Bowie produced for someone else was the best material those artists recorded IMHO. This album has Iggy Pop's best individual songs but I feel it doesn't hold up as well as an album compared to The Idiot.

Never mind The Stooges, this is peak era Iggy, well on record at least. Iggy and Bowie is the dream team innit. I would have thought The Idiot and the Berlin Trilogy are all on this list as well which says a lot about how creative these two were during that period.

A special album, to my opinion. Nice to have heard once more. I used to have this album on a cassette. With some special songs Lust for life, Passenger and Tonight. This last song I also love very much performed live by David Bowie and Tina Turner. I found out that the link to David Bowie and the song Tonight lies in the production of Davis Bowie of Iggy Pop.

Why does this song about heroin make me want to go on a family friendly cruise? Lots of Bowie. Lyrically driven. Obviously love Lust for Life and The Passenger but Success is another stand out. Each song feels well crafted - lots of thought and love in each track where a significant amount of the other albums we've listened to have an almost self aware amount of filler between stand out tracks. I've always heard Iggy Pop was the man. This album drives that home.

Wow how have I missed this. Not just the hits, but the Bowie collaboration which led to Bowie’s “Tonight” album, and the last track with Hunt and Tony Sales which leads right to Tin Machine!

Rough sleeper music. Tough and edgy because it could have its head kicked in any minute. Heard it not just as the collapse of the 60s dream but of the Bretton Woods agreement, which may be the same thing.

“Lust for Life” by Iggy Pop (1977) Is this the second best thing to come out of a trailer park In Ypsilanti, Michigan? Most of the music (chords, melodies, arrangements) was composed by David Bowie, so you’ve got that going on, then the sad work of The Stooges taken one step further, with lyrics that are an admittedly intelligent mess, blared out by a lead vocal that is, well Iggy Pop. Ho-hum. Vocally, Pop in “The Passenger” channels (poorly) Jim Morrison, but without the sensuality. Vocally, Pop in “Tonight” channels (poorly) David Bowie. Surprise, surprise. And about that lyric, Iggy: If your baby’s turning blue, don’t celebrate your heroic pastoral sensitivity—call 911. Jesus. Modestly accomplished rhythm section that sounds like the offspring of Soupy Sales (they were) and guitar work that is intentionally bombastic to the point of irrelevance (must not upstage the frontman, you see). Here we have the makings of commercial success, though Bowie and Pop (in that order) would probably prefer that motivation remain undisclosed, despite the glimpse we get in “Success”. “Turn Blue” is another reminder that heroin always screws up the music, and in this case, the lyrics too. Punk puts the toxic in toxic masculinity. Someday this will be regarded as silly, but we’re not there yet. 1/5

Chyba pierwszy solowy material od Iggiego na liscie i juz moj ulubiony krazek z jego dyskografii, czyli lust for life bedacy drugim solowym albumem pana Popa z roku 77, wiec z czasow berlinskiej trylogii Bowiego, nie jest to bez znaczenia, bo byl on producentem tego krazka i mozna powiedziec, ze byl jednym z glownych sil dzialajacych na Iggiego, ktory razem z nim uciekl za wielka wode do europy przed narkotykowym szalenstwem i w poszukiwaniu nowych inspiracji tworczych, wiec nazwisko Bowiego mozna zobaczyc jako kompozytora wiekszosci kawalkow, operatora klawiszy czy uslyszec na backujacych wokalach, jak dla mnie ten okres u obu artystow jest peakowym momentem w ich karierach, lust for life to jeden z tych albumow ktore sie kocha a ciezko stwierdzic za co tak naprawde, jednym z aspektow beda teksty Iggiego przez ktore wpadl w oko Bowiemu, gdy gral jeszcze w Stoogesach, jest to chyba najbardziej komercyjny album tego punkowego pradziada, jak przystalo na tak bliski colab z Bowim, ale jego popowosc skupia sie glownie na czesci instrumentalnej, bo lirycznie jest to nadal ostra brzytwa, sprytnie przemycana w pluszowych zabawkach, bo glownymi motywami plyty jest copowanie z heroinowymi nawykami, zaraz obok krecenia mlodymi dupami, ale nie brakuje miejsca na satyre zachodniego sukcesu na traku success, ktory zaraz obok passengera pretenduje do kategorii najlepszego drumowania plyty, ale elementem ktory jak dla mnie robi ten trak sa backujace wokale Bowiego puszczone przez syntha sprawiajace wrazenie, ze za Popem spiewa caly chorek, sam kawalek the passenger to chyba najbardziej komercyjnie przyjety utwor Popa, filmy, radio, telewizja byl on wszedzie, a nadal jest sluchalny, bo tak uniwersalny motyw podrozy z hipnotycznym beatem wydrumionym przez Hunta Salesa, ciekawe jeszcze ze ten kawalek wyprodukowal Colin Thurston, ktory tworzyl w tym okresie z Bowim na heroes i podpisal sie pseudonimem Bewlay Bros, referencja do ostatniego traka z hunky dory, wiec wszedzie jajka wielkanocne sa poukrywane, na plejke dodam tylko turn blue, chyba najbardziej eksperymentalny utwor albumu, takze lirycznie chyba najbardziej bogaty, bo opisuje przedobrzenie z heroina, wiec temat z pewnoscia bliski sercu pana Popa

Lust for Life and The Idiot both sound very much like Bowie albums in disguise and are great Iggy Pop albums. Presumably The Idiot is also on the list - both illustrate the enormous difference in quality between albums on the list over time. (Would also be appropriate if Blah-Blah-Blah is on the list too but I suppose it is not.)

There's "Lust For Life" and "The Passenger", those two tracks only making it worthwhile to buy your ticket for this ride. But there's also lewd "Sixteen", loud "Some Weird Sin" or lanky "Neighborhood Threat" (what a great 'proto-post punk' guitar arpeggio, slithering in the background from start to end...). There's "Success" and "Tonight". There's David Bowie and Ricky Gardiner in top form behind the scenes. And of course, there's Iggy, his voice, his presence. Still wild, roaring and intense a few years after the Stooges' demise. He snarls, he hoots, he hollers. If he's the "modern man", as he says he is in "Lust For Life", I'm all up for giving up drugs too, getting my shit together, and join him in Berlin to celebrate the ironies of consumer society. Danny Boyle had one of the greatest ideas of his life to use this track for Trainspotting (or was it the book's author, Irvine Welsh?). But the album is worth it, too, folks. So dive in. Number of albums left to review or just listen to:  more than 900, I've temporarily lost count here Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens:  approximately a half so far (including this one) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: a quarter Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): the last quarter

David Bowie vibe is evident on this… so it suddenly made sense reading that he was heavily involved on the Wikipedia page. Besides “Lust for Life” (oh - yes I guess it does sound very Bowie!) and “The Passenger” I knew very little Iggy Pop. This was fun and I enjoyed it! Favorite songs: Lust for Life, The Passenger, Success, Neighborhood Threat

I know of The Passenger, which I like. Sixteen is gross, obviously. I didn't know Bowie sang at all on this too (Tonight), I know this was the Berlin-trilogy time where they worked closely together. You can hear the Bowie touches a bunch of times. I generally like it, 3.5 but can't decide between 3 or 4. I will round up to 4 but I could go either way.

Of course, I could listen to Passenger all day long. Iggy has a great rock n' roll/punk voice - very distinctive. This sounds a bit like a garage-y Bowie album, as it should since he wrote or co-wrote most of the songs. Interestingly the only one he or Iggy didn't write was Passenger.

I saw Iggy live in mid 80s and again in the mid 90s. He did not look at all like the brother on the cover of Lust for Life. I guess I have to believe it’s his picture but if it is, the decade after releasing this album were hard years. This album is very good. Seeing Izzy  live was easily a  “5” both times but  I don’t think I have a 5 for his studio albums.

I was very surprised that this was 77 and was way better than I had expected. Everyone's heard passenger a million times but it has not lost its impact on me.

I'll lead off by commenting that this is one of the more intriguing album covers I've come across. It's so simple, and based on the story I read on wikipedia, is well-meaning - it's meant to reflect the more positive tone of the album compared to Pop's previous albums. And yet, I can't shake this feeling that there's a certain mysterious ambiguity to his smile. Fortunately, the music itself is nowhere near as cryptic - the title track 'Lust for Life' is one that I've heard numerous times before in various movie soundtracks, and it's a terrific introduction to this worthwhile album. 'Lust for Life' and 'The Passenger' are the two well-known tracks on the album (for good reason, they're excellent songs), but there's plenty to enjoy here - 'Some Weird Sin', 'Success', the surprising blues-y nature of the aptly named 'Turn Blue', or the album closer 'Fall In Love with Me'.

Iggy Pop, hold the Stooges. An interesting place to start in Iggy's catalog, as this is well after the punk origins and the apparent Bowie oversight. Some very strong songs on here, especially "The Passenger," which I know I've heard in a movie or two (seems very Wes Anderson). I'm glad to read this was Iggy weaning himself from Bowie's influence because I've yet to really understand the Bowie hype like that and certainly don't need a copycat. This was a solid album, but didn't exactly wow me. I'll hold that thought until we get some Stooges albums. Favorite tracks: The Passenger, Neighborhood Threat, Fall in Love with Me, Lust for Life. Album art: Absolutely terrible portrait cover. So lame that I would never have otherwise listened to this. Whoever greenlit this for release should be ashamed of themselves. It's like a fifth grade yearbook picture, if a fifth grader was held back for thirty years. His mom must've said "aww, you look so handsome!" and he rolled with it. Tragic. 4/5

This is a fine album with a couple of iconic songs...Lust for Life and The Passenger and some fine songs to fill it out; Success, Some Weird Sin, Neighborhood Threat and Tonight rock hard and help me to imagine the glory days of The Stooges, but with better licks. But that title tune I just never tire of; from the Lou Reed style sado-masochistic lyric to the incredible drumming. Just about damn perfect. No, the rest of the album doesn't quite approach it but damn it often comes close. Case in Point the stinging guitar and driving rhythm section of closer Fall In Love With Me. 4.5 stars

Hoe rude of Iggy to be so chipper on what is clearly a pretty hungover day. Though, to be fair, the start of this album got me feeling energized again. There's a reason the passenger is such a classic, what a banger. The album was a steady downhill for me, starting off at a 5 and finishing at a 3, so I'll give it the nice and average 4.

Iggy Pop is always a win for me, would happily listen to the album again, even if not every track was a banger. Though I did listen to this album whilst pissed out my skull, so that may have contributed to it's success.

A very good album. This album was produced by David Bowie, which is pretty cool. Light genre research tells me that this album is proto-punk, and you can definitely hear some early punk sounds in here, along with just generally really great 70s rock. I haven't really heard Iggy Pop before this, but I can definitely see now why he's so influential and well regarded amongst actual musicians. I'll have to admit, however, that I wasn't as crazy about the closing track as I was with the rest of the album. Eight out of nine is still pretty good though, especially when those earlier tracks are as good as they are.

I've never been much of a punk fan. I find a lot of it repetitive - musically, lyrically, thematically. I'm probably ignorant. Most of this record sounds like a good ol' R&R album. The Passenger is a really catchy tune. Iggy's singing is perhaps the weakest link, but it's filled with emotion and overall fun, groovy, catchy. Def can see Bowie's influence all over, as well as The Stones. Not bad at all. 8/10

This album was a super cool listen. It's crazy that Iggy was so far ahead of his time that he had already moved onto his second act as a musician the same year that punk was beginning to break in the US and UK. The title track on this album is a titanic way to kick the album off, but it doesn't disappoint from there. The Passenger is an awesome song, but really all of the songs on this album are good. 4/5

It's not "Raw Power", but it's still raw, groovy, and classic. "Lust for Life" is pretty good, but I completely forgot about "The Passenger", it's one of my favorites by Iggy!

I have a soft spot for Iggy, but this project clearly deserves its line in history. A little bit of freakiness is in evidence, though it's mostly stuffed in pop-song forms. If there's any lack, it's that the tracklist avoids a real rise or fall. But there's development, there's the hit, no filler, and plenty of rock forward.

Lust for Life is an album with a very interesting story, involving the growing relationship between Iggy and Bowie that resulted in great songs - the peak being this album. The mix of hard rock and some kind of punk reminescent from the Stooges (and heroine) is very unique, especially in the opening track "Lust for Life". "Some Weird Sin" is very raw, "The Passenger" is a classic and "Tonight" makes clear that this is basically a Pop & Bowie effort. Always a great listen.

Un dels dos pics de la carrera d'Iggy Pop en solitari, juntament amb el molt posterior 'American Caesar'. Més musical que 'The Idiot' i més ambiciós i inspirat que tot el que vindria després -amb les excepcions de 'Brick by Brick' i l'esmentat 'American Caesar'- un jove Iggy Pop acompanyat encara per l'ajuda del Bowie berlinés ofereix un compendi de rock molt personal, de digestió no gaire senzilla, però d'una gran honestedat i versatilitat. I contenint a més, és clar, 'The Passenger'

The title track will forever be associated with Trainspotting for me. The rest of the album, however is completely new to me. This is punk-Bowie. Same instrumentation and vocal stylings. The Passenger is a great song. Tonight has a Broadway "Skid Row" sound and feel - clearly about overdose, and do I detect David Bowie singing backup on this? This is better than a lot of glam and punk rock. A nice surprise!

I knew the biggies from this and its status as a 'classic'. It met my expectationsbut didn't exceed them. It's essentially a really great punk/glam album which has no bad songs on it, and two truly brilliant ones (Title track and The Passenger). His sneering attitude and fierce intellect raise this above more pedestrian fare from the same time, but it's a really good album, rather than an amazing one.

Apparently I didn't like Iggy Pop's "The Idiot" very much a few months ago. But "Lust for Life" was better. The first five songs were great - I don't think I ever realized "The Passenger" was Iggy. "Success" was the least successful song on the album for me, but the rest was strong, and definitely makes me much more likely to revisit Iggy than "The Idiot."

Well, Sixteen is a little disturbing... LFL is decent, I feel like this album was IPs shot at going pseudo-mainstream and facilitated by Bowie who saw some good stuff in IP. The Turn Blue track, written by Bowie, is terrible and doesn't fit with the album. Also, the lyric "Shot myself down" comes out as 'Shat myself down'... hehehe "Shat" ... Anyhow, there are a couple good tracks on this that everyone has heard before in their favorite coming-of-age drama (The Passenger, I'm talking to you), this doesn't perform as well as I thought it might, but still deserves high marks. ... where are the Stooges albums on this list... ?

Another album where the hand of David Bowie revives a legendary artist, like he did with Lou Reed. This album's A-Side is full of amazing songs, Lust For Life, Sixteen even The Passenger. It falls slowly away during side B with a few missers, so it's a 4* rather than a 5* album.

5/12/2022 - ALBUM #106 Today's Album: "Lust For Life" by Iggy Pop - The opening track of this album, Lust For Life, is a really fun and upbeat track that is so accessible, it's really surprising that it's an Iggy Pop song at all, which is a great analogy for how I feel about most of this album. I think this being the third album I've hear from Iggy, I really am starting to appreciate his vocals and the production on a lot of these tracks is really great, managing to mix everything equally and make it sound really warm and crisp. I think I still am having a hard time getting into his lyricism, but it's really starting to make sense how he writes song and its getting easier to dissect the deeper meaning out of these tracks. I really like the simple instrumentation of the passenger and I think Iggy gives a really solid and powerful vocal performance on this one. All of the track on this album really just feel like Iggy is deciding to make a more uplifting and upbeat album after coming out of a battle with drugs and alcohol and it genuinely shows in just how fun the songwriting is on this album. Tonight and Success are both fantastic rock anthems and the performances are just so damn lively and full of heart. Turn Blue isn't really as exciting as some of the other tracks, but it has a really nice aesthetic to it and the vocal performance may be the strongest and most confident I have heard from Iggy to date, with many dramatic changes in vocal delivery that go over quite well. Neighborhood Threat feels a bit more generic than some of the other tracks here, but it still sounds pretty nice while it's on. The closing track, Fall In Love With Me, is a really fun jam track where the band lets loose a little with this really groovy track. There's a lot of fun solos, a rock organ backing things up, and Iggy's vocal performance really takes a back seat and blends well into the vibe of the track. Overall, this album really surprised me and showed me why people like Iggy Pop so much. He isn't often poppy, but when he decides to make a pop song, you understand why it's in his name. Listen to this one if you like 70s rock outfits like David Bowie or if you want to hear some of the most accessible music from Iggy Pop. Highlights: Lust For Life, The Passenger, Tonight, Success, Neighborhood Threat, Fall In Love With Me Score: 7.5/10 My favorite Iggy Pop project so far

If I had to pick my favorite work from Iggy Pop, it would be from his role on "The Adventures of Pete and Pete". I know songs from Iggy Pop, like "Lust for Life" and "The Passenger", as well as some familiarity with him as an artist. This was my first time listening to a full album from Pop. It gets the "okay, I guess". I had no idea that Bowie helped create so much of this album.

C'ho sempre avuto un rapporto complicato con Iggy Pop, non avevo mai sentito tutto questo album ma l'esperienza me l'ha riconfermato. Mi piace lo spirito punk, il fatto che sia tutto zozzo, sulla carta me dovrebbe piacè... invece non me funziona. Iggy Pop nella maggior parte dei casi lo sento come quando uno cazzeggia su un pezzo dicendo parole più o meno a caso solo che poi lui lo lascia così. Il che è molto punk, però è anche un po' una palla. Cioè secondo me sta cosa di esse zozzo e parlare un po' di fica un po' di società lo danneggia artisticamente. C'è pure da dire che si sente l'influenza di Bowie di cui, molto unpopular opinion, non so mai stato un grande fan. Sicuramente si sente poi l'influenza che questo disco e la musica di questo periodo ha avuto sul rock moderno, che è poco però quello che c'è è su questa falsa riga. Insomma: così così Pezzi mejo: Turn Blue Fall In Love With Me (passenger non ce la posso mette, l'ho sentita fatta da troppi gruppi delle medie/superiori per apprezzarla ormai)

However, it's still nice to see how these guys that I know as "classic rock" and "proto-punk" sound with many varieties of styles and songs and were soo much "out-of-the-box" even 40 or 50 years ago. Modern bands should learn more of this kind of thing from the old school and not just the bad things.

Lite platt ljud men hygglo ljudbild, Briljanta låtar, härlig energi. punksound utan att det blir 'jobbigt'. Rätt spännande blandning på låtarna, har lyssnat på albumet tidigare men blir ändå förvånad när nästa skumma country-gitarrsolo(?) kommer. Jätterolig lyssning, otippat brett spann på låtarna på ett sånt tidigt album. De flesta låtarna vettefan om de står så bra på egna ben, men i något holistiskt perspektiv så passar alltihop perfekt, känns som ett kurerat tivolibesök istället för ett hopplock av random 'bra låtar'. Bra längd, lite synd att ljudet inte hade det djup jag hade hoppats på, genuint roligt att lyssna på rakt igenom.

Pretty good album here. Much better than raw power. Lust for life is a classic song and the pretender is solid with the help of Bowie. The whole album had a softer Bowie/punk vibe. It was a good listen. 7.1/10

Some iconic songs, trends in a direction that I enjoy. I’d listen to it again, but not something I see myself revisiting. I also mistakenly listened to Lou Reed’s “Transformer” thinking it was today’s album, and enjoyed it more than this. Best song: Passenger, without a doubt

2 fantastische hits, maar de rest van het album is wat eenheidsworst. Geen uitblinker

Not a bad album. Enjoyed the music. Still not a big Iggy fan.

I know a few tunes from Iggy Pop, but never thought that I would be interested in much more than that. Turns out that I liked this album more than expected. About half of the tracks I liked and the others ranked from okay to tolerable.

I truly love the cover of this album. Who knew such a portrait would be so subversive of album norms? I've always loved the title track (slightly soured perhaps by repeated cruise commercials). And "The Passenger" is a cool song (which was very nicely redone by Siouxie and the Banshees, and that may be the version I knew better). Other than those songs, I really wasn't familiar with Iggy Pop's music, so I was very glad to finally listen to a signature album of his. He's one of those icons whose fame I know, but not whose music I know. I didn't love it, but I still enjoyed the journey.

Iggy Pop is fucking overrated. This isn't awful but it doesn't deserve the praise it gets.

Enjoyable - I had not gotten into Iggy previously. Respect the contribution but I've already forgotten how it really sounded.

Sixteen is a bad song in basically every way. The lyrics are weird, the production is not enjoyable and the song is boring. Some Weird Sin sounds like a mediocre David Bowie song. I think the production is intentionally messy but I don't really like it all that much. The Passenger is okay but I still find it boring. I think Tonight is one of the best songs on the album and the guitar solo is really good. Success is good but not all that interesting. Turn Blue is kind of good but the vocals are kind of annoying. Neighborhood Threat and Fall In Love With Me are good but not all that interesting or memorable. My rating is definitely a little harsh but I just think this album is pretty boring and at just 41 minutes it was hard to get through. Favorite Songs: Lust For Life, Tonight Least Favorite Song: Sixteen Strong 4/10

Lust for Life has a really good beat, I enjoyed this one. Sixteen is painful in some way to me...the beat is just constant in the same way...and the yelling/singing of the late 70s is not my jam. Some Weird Sin...lyrics repeated way too much. The music has an anxious quality to it, sort of frenetic. The Passenger, I like the tone and beat of his voice in this song. Again, the actual music just seems the same, repeated far too much in a very basic rhythm that grates. Tonight....the guitar has a screeching quality to it. I really like the uniqueness of Iggy's and how he plays around with it. The choice of his music in this album though....I am not enjoying. The opening beats of Success I like, the beats on top of beats is so interesting. The layering in this one I like. Turn Blue, I do not like, had to skip. Punk rock...I don't think it's my jam....Ended Neighborhood Threat with 30 seconds to go. Fall In Love With Me has that duh duh duh duh duh beat, the same beat over and over with a random screaming guitar. Didn't finish Fall In Love With Me, only made it halfway in. Maybe I just don't like Iggy's punk rock? It's just painful and makes me angry/angsty feeling.

I like a couple of the more famous tracks, probably due to familiarity. If it wasn't for listening to pretty clear recordings of 50s/60s jazz that I've listened to due to this project, then I would have blamed the weird sound levels on the age, but this seems to have been mixed wrong or something. Everything blends in and is a bit dull. Tried a few different sources to check and it seems to have been how they meant it to be!

I was never an Iggy Pop fan, I had heard his songs every once in a while and on a Kesha song and I was never impressed. Finally getting to listen to an album I can now say he should be called Iggy Dud. The confidence of this fella to post his mug on the album cover is hilarious and while I'm not saying I hate his music, it just didn't impress me at all. Just your basic late 70's rock. I would rather listen to Lana Del Rey talk about her Lust for Life than Iggy.

Never really listened to Iggy Pop before and I found this to be okay. It wasn't anything special and I wouldn't go out of my way for it. It's somewhere around a 2.5 for me so I'm going to drop it to a 2 in an attempt to correct my supposedly flawed rating system.

There are definite grooves and high points outside the frustratingly repetitive title track, but not nearly enough to elevate this album to anything memorable when it comes to rock.

Mediocre album made possible by Bowie who is responsible for most of the good bits.

I couldn't really enjoy this album. Lust For Life is a catchy tune but lyrics aren't much. The Passenger is probably the best on here, a couple others aren't bad numbers but I can't rate this very high.

Rating: 2/5 Not a fan of Iggy Pop's style, maybe because the pop-punk subgenre isn't my forte normally. I didn't completely hate the album, just not something I would ever pick up again. Stand Out Song(s): Some Weird Sin, The Passenger
