  • In terms of sonic fingerprints, 2003's SKULL RING is as close as solo Iggy Pop had come to the classic Stooges sound since the `70s. By this time, Iggy had reunited with the surviving Stooges, who back him on four cuts. Accordingly, those tracks are full of raw, punky fervor, but so are most of the other cuts here. In addition to his regular (non-Stooges) band, Iggy is backed variously by Green Day and Sum 41, who add a fresh punch to the old master's rock & roll drive. Peaches joins in for a couple of duets as well, which turn out to be some of the rawest, most agreeably unhinged moments on the album. SKULL RING would be Iggy's last solo release for some time, as he would soon launch himself into a full-scale Stooges reunion project.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/27/03, p.93) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...He's still plenty capable of sounding like the original dead-end kid wriggling out of a straitjacket...[Iggy and the surviving Stooges] still sound like the blue-collar skull-crushers they once were..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/7/03, p.70) - "...When Iggy and the Ashetons buzz through [their tunes, it feels] all right..." - Rating: B

Q (01/01/04, p.76) - Ranked #36 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003" - "Cartoonish, primal and primal..."

Uncut (11/03, p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Rest assured that Iggy's music is as powerfully singular as ever. SKULL RING throbs with ferocious intent..."

Magnet (11/03, pp.88-9) - "...This ring is brass - good, solid..."

CMJ (10/20/03, p.8) - "...[On] SKULL RING, the 56-year-old wild child looks both forward and back....The obvious standouts are the four Stooges numbers..."

Mojo (Publisher) (10/03, pp.106-7) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...It confirms Iggy as a man who, after all these years, is still remarkably in love with his first love: rock'n'roll..."
