  • Author: Iggy Pop.
  • Iggy Pop's 2009 release, PRELIMINAIRES, is certainly one of the more ambitious projects of his long and infamous career. Inspired in part by the writings of French author Michele Houellebecq, the album is more broadly a tip of the cap to the sensuality of French culture. Stylistically diverse, PRELIMINAIRES finds the proto-punk icon touching on New Orleans second-line brass ("King of the Dogs"), bluesy acoustic numbers ("He's Dead/She's Alive"), and, naturally, chanson ("Les Feuilles Mortes").
  • Iggy has always possessed a slithery baritone croon, and the jazzy noir qualities of PRELIMINAIRES allow him to indulge this often underrated quality in his voice. While there might be some arguable clunkers here, PRELIMINAIRES is ultimately a late-career creative gamble that pays off--positioning Iggy as an outlaw musician more in line with the likes of Scott Walker and Serge Gainsbourg than the legions of snot-nosed punks he inspired.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.91) - "Iggy still flashes his charm and humor, as on 'King of the Dogs,' a randy New Orleans boogie..."

Billboard (p.36) - "[O]n cuts like 'I Wanna Go to the Beach' and 'Spanish Coast,' Pop's understated delivery draws even the most skeptical of listeners in, bathing his hushed voice in bed of stark piano and tremolo-washed guitar."

Q (Magazine) (p.116) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "PRELIMINAIRES is a rumination on mortality, sex and the future of the human race....Forty years after The Stooges' debut album, Iggy Pop is still heading blindly into the unknown."

Paste (magazine) (p.58) - "[T]he Ig's latest ranges from New Orleans Dixieland to quiet bossa-nova ballads, all rendered in his deepest croon..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Iggy emerges as a serious, sensitive singer-songwriter draped in exotic musical tapestries, but still unmistakably Ignacious."

Uncut (magazine) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "His 61-year-old voice now has all the smoke-damaged, soulful power of Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen, oozing ennui and gallows humour."
