Post Pop Depression finds Iggy Pop working with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, a mighty pairing if ever there was one. Gnarly action with Iggy’s urban swagger and Homme’s rugged desert vibes: the rest of the band is made up of members of The Dead Weather and Arctic Monkeys. On Rekords Rekords.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 19th May 2016
I was sceptical about this – not sceptical enough not to buy it, however, although sceptical enough not to shell out £28 for the deluxe version. Iggy Pop has made some great records and some not-so great records. Lately it seemed that his output would fit best into the latter catergory. Anyway, here he is under the guidance of Josh Homme and it seems to have worked. The dark nature of his best work is there. Indeed it opens with the lines “I’m gonna break into your heart, I’m gonna crawl under your skin”, from the creeping opener “Break Into Your Heart”. There is stark contrast between this and the intro of “Gardenia” which comes next. It’s one of the best tracks and recalls the work Iggy did with Bowie – seems that Homme has used that period as his reference point as later track “Sunday” will also attest. Closing track "Paraguay" is another stand out. The music is generally both punchy and understated and I think it’s a worthwhile album.
