Considering that "Skull Ring" not only marks a historic reunion with the Stooges but also features guest turns by Peaches, Sum 41 and Green Day, it is rather amusing that most of the disc's best cuts are the ones featuring only his current solo band, the Trolls. Chief among them is the speaker-shredding gutter sleaze of "Blood on Your Cool" and the anthemic, wonderfully simplistic "Here Comes the Summer." That said, hearing Pop sing with Green Day on the slick "Supermarket" feels somewhat like a revelation. Iggy, give us more of that! A nice surprise is the industry-bashing, acoustic cut "Til Wrong Feels Right."—WO
