Horses (album)

From Academic Kids

Template:Album infobox

Horses is the debut album by Patti Smith released in November of 1975 (see 1975 in music). The most innovative track is "Land", a radical reworking of Cannibal & the Headhunters' "Land of a Thousand Dances". "Gloria" is a similar reinterpretation of the old Van Morrison classic. Smith has been called an early pioneer of punk rock, such as by allmusic's William Ruhlman, who said that it "isn't hard to make the case for Patti Smith as a punk rock progenitor based on Horses" [1] (http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll%24p=amg&uid=MISS70309100250&sql=Arek0ikm6bb69), while PopMatters' David Antrobus chose it as his favorite album and considered it a life-changing classic [2] (http://popmatters.com/music/reviews/s/smithpatti-horses.shtml).

Horses peaked at #47 on Billboard Music Charts' Pop Albums chart.

In 2003 the TV network VH1 named Horses the 28th greatest album of all time. It is number 44 on the List of Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
