Just got the album this year 2018 - like it and can see why it appears as an iconic album as can't think of a female artist delivering like that prior to this album. Signs of punk yeah - but Blondie style punk with some good melodies. Love the rendition of Van Morrison's Gloria

From Sandrof1969 02/16/2018 19:53
L'iniziale cover di "Gloria" di Van Morrison varrebbe da sola non solamente il disco ma un'intera carriera. Al contrario non mi hanno mai convinto troppo i due brani ( "Birdland" e "Land" ) che sostanzialmente sono reading poetry e che trovo noiosi. I dischi successivi di Patti Smith mi sarebbero poi piaciuti solo a sprazzi, a canzoni, ma "Horses", con le eccezioni di cui sopra, rimane uno dei miei dischi preferiti, per lo meno degli anni settanta.

Replayable to the death, cointains some amazing lyrics and instrumentation, some of the origins of punk.

She all but invented punk music. Best opening line to any album I've ever listened to, a unique style, and instrumentation that's aged pretty well. It's a little too self-indulgent at times, but overall it's great.

"Horses" isn't just influential because of how important it is in the punk rock movement, Patti Smith's lyricism is astonishing, her delivery is really unique and the production complements the lyrics really well. And because of all this, her debut album has grown to become a timeless work of art. One of the best albums of the 70s and probably the best of the decade by a female artist.

Everyone knows how influential this record (as well as other albums made by Patti Smith) is. Looking at just the music by itself, it's range of going from straight up rock (Gloria), Kind of reggae vibe (Redondo Beach), to quiet and emotional piano pieces (Birdland or Elegie). All of it accompanied by interesting poetry. The lyrics is what makes this album, they are composed of visceral emotions that can really hit the nerves. That's how the record was so inspiring to many people who start making music in the years to come.
