Reviews:

''The Idiot'' is the debut solo album by American rock singer Iggy Pop. It was the first of two LPs released in 1977 which Pop wrote and recorded in collaboration with David Bowie. Although issued after ''Low'', the opening installment of Bowie's so-called Berlin Trilogy, the pair began writing and recording songs for ''The Idiot'' in mid-1976, before Bowie started work on his own album. As such, ''The Idiot'' has been claimed as heralding the unofficial beginning of Bowie's 'Berlin' period, being compared particularly to ''Low'' and ''"Heroes"'' in its electronic effects, treated instrument sounds, and introspective atmosphere. A departure from the hard rock of his former band The Stooges, the album is regarded by critics as one of Popís best works, but is not generally considered representative of his output. Its title was inspired by Dostoyevsky's novel ''The Idiot'', three of the participants in the recordingóBowie, Pop and Tony Viscontióbeing familiar with the book. - Wikipedia
