Distilling Iggy Pop's work down to 17 songs is nearly impossible. Anyone with an interest in Mr. Pop should first pick up the Stooges albums before exploring his later solo years. This collection, however, includes enough highlights to satisfy a casual fan. The Stooges are lightly covered with the essential punk anthem "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and the manic "Search and Destroy." The inclusion of the slinking "Sick of You" is a nice touch. Pop's pop leanings pop up with "Nightclubbing," "China Girl," and "Lust for Life," tracks in which the guitars are toned down a notch and Iggy exhibits a slightly more mellow side. Of course, he ultimately returns with a vengeance befitting one of rock's original wild men. –Rob O'Connor, amazon.com.
American Caesar being Iggy Pop's 1993 album and contained the hit single "Wild America". Other great tracks are Iggy Pop's cover of "Louie Louie", "Beside You" and "Highway Song". This is Iggy's best album as a solo artist in my opinion. This album brings together elements of the old stooges sound along with a mix from albums such as lust for life. All in all its an album that has darker feel and the title "american caesar" seems to fit so well. The booklet is straight forward and contains all the lyrics and also has a list of whom plays what on the album. 4/5.
