So wrong, so wrong, so wrong.  Reviewer BradL wrote about Dylan‘s Christmas in the Heart that “[a]nyone can make a mediocre record.  It takes true genius to make a wretched one.”  Iggy Pop has earned some ignoble piece of genius here because this is about as bad as they come.  You have a band calling itself The Stooges that only manages to sound like a tenth-rate Stooges knock-off.  File this alongside Heard Ya Missed Me, Well I’m Back and 15 Big Ones as another “comeback” album that should have never been.
