Awesome, love it - you cannot beat a bit of Iggy just to clear the cobwebs away! This is such a classic 70s album with the Bowie influence and the Sales brothers backing him up. Gotta own it, but don't over pay!

Great album, poor reissue, the vinyl is excessively noisy
the music itself its worth 5 stars- and more!

This is one of two albums from Iggy's Berlin period and is the sister album to the more commercially upbeat and accessible 'Lust for Life'.

Disturbing, angular and abrasive, 'the Idiot' is a minor masterpiece and still stands the test of time today.

Bowie's involvement is substantial and he was to resurrect 'China Girl' at a later date, albeit losing the essence of the song in the process.

An extra-ordinary album which isn't immediately accessible, but is superb nevertheless.

It was sealed, but the vinyl contained a few skips.

I would give this 5 stars on the album content but I've given it 2 stars because this is one of the worst vinyl reissues I've heard.
The vinyl is excessively noisy and crackly and on side two there appears to be an uneven playing surface resulting in a thud like beat every time the stylus goes over the uneven area.
The music itself does shine through and masks some of the failings of the pressing.
I did some research and this release is by 4 Men With Beards and on a few vinyl forums this company is not very well received and apparently has an habit of cutting corners when it comes to reissues.
Perhaps I've just got a bad pressing but I've read reviews by others who have experienced problems with this release.
