A solid Iggy Pop record, but with a lingering sense of disappointment that all the talent involved couldn’t create something more substantial.
Instinctive, messy, and rambling, with shimmers of the divine. Electric Ladyland speaks in a kind of rock and roll tongues, with Jimi Hendrix front and centre.
