Top 20: The Best of Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop is a Punk icon. That said, his solo work can be pretty patchy. Let's face it, a lot of it is really disappointing. Party? The Weirdness? Naughty Little Doggie? Of course, a lot of critics piss on Avenue B and I happen to really like that album. But many of his albums fall flat on their face even if some cuts rise above the pratfall. So, I'm not going to waste your time ranking all his albums from the best to worst. I'm just going to give you his worst, meaning his finest. And sure, you can pick up a Greatest Hits but you'll be missing out on some hot gems that slipped through the cracks. There's also a ton of bootlegs, a couple of which are truly worth seeking out. If you haven't heard Sick of You, Till The End of the Night, Tight Pants or Scene of the Crime, you're missing some prime, blistering Iggy cuts. Yeah, the sound isn't pristine but who goes to Iggy for that? Classics like I Got A Right and Open Up and Bleed never made it on an official release and are essential Iggy. So here's Iggy's Top 20.

I think my favorite is Lust for Life, front to back. It has everything I want out of an Iggy album.

Mine would be The Idiot. It's just so sleazy and I can just imagine him and Dave in Berlin.
