I was 1 year old when "The Idiot" hit the shelves. Since discovering this recording in my 20's, I consistently return to it over the years. The balance of light and darkness of the album, the dissonance, the grooves and the romantic locations in which it was recorded somehow gives this record a multi-dimensional quality that captures my interest and doesn't let go.

I plan on filling this blog with reviews and listening details (ear candy) about the individual songs, biographies on the personnel involved, lots of detours and related trivia and musings and hopefully interviews.

I look forward to your comments!

Cool blog, I always was curious to learn how exactly Iggy Pop has got inspiration to write "Neighborhood Threat" lyrics i.e., so I wonder if you did a similar blog about "Lust for Life" or any other Iggy Pop or Stooge albums. Thank you.
