New Values by Iggy Pop was originally released in 1979. It was his third solo album and first album of his post-Stooges ouvre, apart from Raw Power, not to feature any input from David Bowie. Nevertheless, this is a bit of classic featuring tracks such as Five Foot One and I’m Bored. Limited edition of 1000 on 180g gold and purple vinyl.
9/10 Ross Holloway Customer review, 24th January 2017
The best Iggy album that isn't one of the three first Stooges studio albums, or the two Berlin Bowie produced albums. It's produced by James Williamson, who maybe strangely doesn't play guitar except on one track, and it's got quite a bubblegum new wave feel, but alongside that it has one of Iggy's best stompers in I'm Bored and one of his best ballads in The Endless Sea. The other albums of this Iggy era, Party and Soldier, are really patchy, but this one is solid all the way through. A bit of an overlooked classic.

A great album, Iggy's solo best and one of the best rock records ever. Grossly overlooked. There is something about the recording of New Values that puts you right in the studio, something you can touch. Iggy's vocal nuances are in peak, beautiful form. And all of it is rocking and deep. It takes me back to those early New Wave days, Elvis Costello, Devo, Boomtown Rats, and how Iggy's voice and sound so clearly stood apart from anything else, and still does. Such a talent, and you can hear him here raw, slick and bratty.
