Pieced together with newly recorded cuts and previously released tracks, We Will Fall: The Iggy Pop Tribute is an average tribute record that will only be of interest to hardcore Iggy fans. Boasting an artist roster divided between the obscure (Blanks 77), the predictable (Joey Ramone, Joan Jett), the superstar (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and the arcane (Jayne County), the record has a handful of good cuts, but no song comes close to matching the intense, crazed fury of Iggy's original version, nor does We Will Fall offer significantly new interpretations of warhorses like "Search and Destroy," "1969," and "Funtime." So, it's another tribute album designed for collectors, either of the saluted artist or the featured bands, since the performances will make casual, curious listeners wonder what the big deal is.
