FILTER Grade: 94%

Iggy & The Stooges

The Stooges were ahead of their time with 1973’s Raw Power, which pierced the flower child movement with its screeching intensity. On the three-disc Masters Edition, the landmark proto-punk album is refined at a decibel-defying rate while the outtakes highlight the grating guitars and Iggy’s guttural vocals that trademarked the group’s sound. But, it’s the live recordings loaded with raging tour de forces like “Search and Destroy” and “Gimme Danger” that reaffirm The Stooges as timeless.  LAUREN BARBATO
