IGGY'S EFFORTS W/ THE STOOGES AND SOLO ALBUMS with David Bowie are classic material, and in 1979, the punk rock pioneer proved he is just as capable on his own with New Values. Pop's first for Arista, the 14-tracker consists of new wave & post-punk-leaning numbers, and although it lacks the raw energy that often defined Iggy's earlier years, New Values showcases the artist's knack for songwriting and his undeniable charisma. Check out "Five Foot One," "I'm Bored," "The Endless Sea," "Girls" and the title track.
