With the exception of The Idiot, Lust for Life, and Brick by Brick, Iggy's solo career has been decidedly uneven and many of his albums have been flat-out dull. Nude & Rude does a terrific job of selecting the best moments from these records, as well as many of the best Stooges tracks, thereby providing a nearly flawless introduction to Iggy's music.
Iggy finally reconnects with his punk roots with "Cold Metal," "Candy" (with The B-52s' Kate Pierson), "Home," and "Wild America. By the mid-'90s, Iggy was no longer a perennial outsider but one of the godfathers of punk, grunge, and whatever extreme music laid itself at his roadworn feet. Nude & Rude: The Best of Iggy Pop Iggy Pop. Rock. As far as quick summaries of long careers go, Nude & Rude is solidly done. While anyone with a serious intent toward understanding Iggy Pop's genius should start with the three official Stooges albums-The Stooges, Fun House, and Raw Power-fans who want a quick sprinkling of solo highlights will find them here. The Stooges material here is scattered but worthy.
Pop's pop leanings pop up with "Nightclubbing," "China Girl," and "Lust for Life," tracks in which the guitars are toned down a notch and Iggy exhibits a slightly more mellow side. Of course, he ultimately returns with a vengeance befitting one of rock's original wild men. - -Rob O'Connor. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). Best cut that i didn't previously have is I'm Sick Of You. Nude and Rude also has the best Stooges tracks (Yes, I know there may be some glaring omissions, but, hey it's a one cd retrospective! what else do ya want!!)highlights from his best solo albums and a smattering of songs from some of his later albums.
