What's so weird about the first Stooges album in three decades, The Weirdness?
|
()

That type of sheer rock 'n' roll megatonnage has yet to be matched — it's just not fair to hold The Weirdness to the same standards as the three original Stooges records.

No one's going to be screaming out the names of new tracks. Thirty years down the line, it doesn't matter if the reunion is a cash grab or a fitting epitaph. What matters is that it's the Stooges. Are you gonna miss the second coming on account of not being overwhelmed by the latest chapter? Six decades in, Pop has been a prince and a pauper, a louse-ridden junkie and a rock god. He's been covered in peanut butter and blood. He's been your dog, and he'll be it again. *
