The Marble Index is the second solo album and third studio album by German musician Nico, which was released in November 1968 on Elektra Records. The avant-garde sound introduced in the album-a stark contrast with her folk pop debut, Chelsea Girl-was the result of the combination of Nico's droning harmonium and somber vocals, and producer John Cale's musical arrangements, which were inspired by modern European classical music.

The Marble Index has been listed as one of the Music good articles under the good article criteria. Per WP:Primary topic the album is now at the main title. SilkTork Tea time 17:16, 18 February 2017 (UTC).

Cale's arrangements attempt to maneuver Nico's lyrical ess; structure isn't in the plan, the only constant, the ubiquitous viola weaving in and out from one track to another and a good old fashion drone. The Marble Index is a direct statement that clocks in at just over 37 minutes. Still, I can't think of an album that proposed a more difficult or tedious first listen. You know, we get the benefit of years of hindsight with albums from other generations. I really didn't pay any heed. I'd like to rationalize the reasons why I don't burn this album in its place with a Bic lighter but there's no point because I don't really hate it.
