Words are powerful. They can relay a person’s thoughts, make people laugh and even make them cry. Lester Bangs was a master at using his words. His review of Iggy Pop “Of Pop and Pies and Fun” is a long-winded review that goes on forever and often gets off track. However, even though his actual review of Iggy’s album does not come until the very end, his mastery of the English language and the fun he had in writing the piece trumps all normal rules of reviews. Short it is not but mind blowing it is.
