Album Details

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. Sessions for the album were begun prior to the recording of the first installment in Bowie's Berlin Trilogy, Low (1977), and The Idiot has thus been called the unofficial beginning of Bowie's Berlin period. Drawing on the electronic sounds of German groups such as Kraftwerk, The Idiot is a departure from the hard rock of Pop's former band the Stooges and has been compared to Bowie's contemporaneous albums in its treated instrument sounds and introspective atmosphere. The album is regarded by critics as one of Pop's 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 recording—Bowie, Pop and Tony Visconti—being familiar with the book. The album has been characterized as a major influence on subsequent post-punk, industrial, and gothic artists.
