From Kurtco
Oh, it's been a long time! I have not listened to it for years, really years, maybe it goes back to the 2000s, as well as a long time ago for me who am still quite young. I still consider it a huge classic, after all this time, it means that it had marked me. And not halfway. This album is absolutely great! It's an album that can be as challenging as it is natural and captivating depending on your state of mind. In any case, it is obvious, a work that would be difficult to try to circumvent and for my part, an old unforgettable favorite. Many thanks to Patti Smith and her band.

10/10

From tw1nk
as of this comment, this album is ranked 179th of all time on BEA and even that feels low. The scope, production and every individual detail put into every single song is staggering and breathtaking and it's truly one of the greatest pieces of music I've ever listened to

If your in any way a music fan Patti Smith's iconic 'Horses' is a must listen , not only did it define Smith as an artist of serious notoriety but it also influenced 2 generations of performers and continues to cast it's enormous shadow today

I love this album but love the live rendition played in full on the Legacy Edition even more . The songs explode to life and F-ing ROCK !!! . Smiths performance is simply breathtaking and one for the ages . And the 17 minute version of "Land" has to be heard to be believed - stunning , stunning , stunning

A strong, appealing album. "Gloria" is a great cover, "Break It Up" and "Land" are also favorites.

I don't get why this is hailed as a punk (or proto-punk) album. It's far too arty and complex to be any sort of punk. Best track is Free Money, Birdland does nothing for me.

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

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.
