Not the Best Stooges, but Pretty Awesome / 4
I agree with the people who said that this isn't the best Stooges album. It isn't. And out of the big three (this, Raw Power, and Funhouse), it's definitley the worst. But it's still good music. The thing I love about The Stooges was that they were so original for the time (and superior to MC5, who we're they're "big brother" band apparently...whatever). They're music was sloppy, distorted, whiny, but there's something inventive, spontaneous, and melodic about it too. Whether or not The Stooges (and other bands like them) fueled the fire for the punk rock movement is arguable, but they definitely drove rock into a direction that it hadn't yet explored. And I think that alone should merit respect from all rock fans.

As for the album itself, the highlights are definitely I Wanna Be Your Dog, Real Cool Time, 1969, and Little Doll. But the other songs aren't terrible either. Even the 10-minute track We Will Fall, which I am not a fan of, is still an interesting experimentally creative effort to do something different (almost sounds like Pink Floyd) and again they deserve respect. The Stooges made great music. Period. It was like nothing else anyone heard of, and has as much rock pioneering credibility as Led Zep, Black Sabbath, and The Doors. If you like Funhouse and Raw Power, get this. But if you don't have any Stooges, get the other albums first.

Song "Death Trip"

(copyright steve harley)

So now we're on a death trip
Listen to the blood drip
Oozing from a curled lip
Ever thought of dying slowly
Ever thought of dying totally unholy

Someone's trying to fool us
Maybe it's your daughters
Can you hear the walros
Offering a sad solution
He's calling out for teenage revolution
And "can you think of one good reason to

To you afficianados
Fooling with bravado
To keep me on my guard-o
And cause a consciousness explosion
(it's getting difficult to keepmy mind in


Images of sunshine
Please, to make the words rhyme
Let me die in eight-time
Let me write a tale to no-one
Let me write a tale to make you think you're
And "can you think of one good reason to

We'll grow sweet ipomoea
To make us feel much freer
Then take a pinch of schemeland
And turn into dreamland
"softly, lautrec," she whispered in awe
