The Weirdness

The Weirdness by The Stooges
Released: Mar 2007
Label: Virgin Records
The Stooges may have aged, but at least they haven't matured. Iggy Pop sings about his balls in the first song, Ron Asheton picks harmonic tones on his guitar in "You Can't Have Friends," and "Mexican Guy" sounds like it could be an outtake from 1970's Fun House until Iggy starts whining that his girl ran off with -- you guessed it -- a Mexican guy. But hey, it's the Stooges! And at the end of the day, it still sounds like the Stooges, just older and, thanks to Steve Albini, cleaner. We're not saying he should've mixed them to sound like the '70s, but -- OK, we are totally saying that.
