Patti Smith's Horses is 30 years old and it still kicks the llama's ass. This is a seminal punk record because it didn't mean to be; it happened. Every self-respecting music fan must own this. Don't believe me? Check out Will Hermes' article in the Village Voice.
More from me later...when my eyes are less fried and my brain is more thawed. Unless someone sends me on an all-expense-paid trip to New York to witness Ms.Smith perform...Takers? Anyone?
