Biography

Patti Smith is considered a poet whose energy and vision found its voice in the most powerful medium of our culture, music. As one of the early pioneers of New York City’s dynamic punk scene, she has been creating her unique blend of poetic rock and roll for over 35 years. She was born in Chicago in 1946, the eldest of four siblings and was raised in South Jersey. From an early age, she ... Read more in Amazon's Patti Smith Store

It truly is remarkable the extent to which Patti Smith set out the template for women in music, influencing everyone from P.J.Harvey to K.T.Tunstall and a few hundred others in between. But Smith hasn't just achieved that - she actually trounces most of her male contemporaries too, in terms of lyrics, charisma, vocal performance and general all-round presence.

Prior to this, Smith had actually had three books of poetry published, making her a multi-talented, multi-tasking woman, an artist, a creator. It almost seems insulting to think of women as mere child-bearers and wives when confronted with the wonder that is Patti Smith. Her legendary status in the music business is rivalled only by the likes of Nico and a few others. Her confident, trademark hollering in 'Till Victory' is captivating, the aural poetry of 'Space Monkey' is amazing, and the awesome power of 'Because The Night' is career-defining. Smith's ability in using words and language is top-notch and her voice is a force of nature.

The likes of 'Ghost Dance' is moody and atmospheric, artistic and subtle, whilst the one minute and thirty seconds of 'Babelogue' is a pure adrenalin rush, as Smith recites her poetry with astonishing character and gusto. 'Rock N' Roll Nigger', meanwhile, is one of the finest songs to come out of the American punk scene, fast-paced, energetic and vital. Even slower numbers like 'We Three' are magnetic, showing a wide range of emotional depth, whilst 'Easter' itself carries on in this same vein, Smith's voice affecting, the music subtly beautiful.

This is a potentially life-changing album from one of the most influential songwriters in the history of music. From her artistic stance on lyrics to her general appearance, Smith's influence is far-reaching. When K.D.

NY's "punk rock poet laureate" Patti Smith might have a fluctuating success rate with albums (the patchy "Wave" being an example), but this record is in her top three finest records of all time. The other two are called "Horses" and "Trampin" respectively.

Two soul-stirring rave-ups begin the album. The madly excited "Till Victory" and the ejaculatory "Space Monkey" are thrilling rock songs recorded in zany burps of creativity.

Stirring pieces such as "Because The Night" and the gorgeous camp-fire number "Ghost Dance" are spine-chilling and represent the pinnacle of Patti's ethereal, literate vox.

"Babelogue" and "Rock 'n' Roll Nigger" represent the controversial experimentalist Patti. An incoherent poetic rant and an incendiary anti-PC anthem are familiar delights in the Tower of Smith.

"Privilege (Set Me Free)" and "We Three" are evocative and moving pieces of music, the latter co-written by Tom Verlaine.

"25th Floor" and "High on Rebellion" is the sound of a group in a state of majestic swagger. A thunderous noise festival and a call to transform waste into beauty... this is art-rock deluxe courtesy of Princess Patti & Co.

"Easter" (title track) is beautiful. Enough said.

The bonus track "Godspeed" is appalling, but Patti fans will probably just be pleased to see it here on the remaster.

Newcomers... start with this album. "Horses" is more avant-garde and less user-friendly. Those who own "Horses" and nowt else, get this immediately.

Everyone else, stop trying to see if Patti has shaved under her arms. FYI... she has.

'Because the Night'*, was released as a single off this album and it remains my favourite to date, but the majority of the tracks border on first class for different reasons, too. Qualified reviewers have described these far better than I could but the title track along with re-recording of Privilege (Set me Free), from the Peter Watkins/John Hayman production, also released as a single, come in a close joint second, for me.

The last track - perhaps not such a great (6 minute) finale, but each to their own.

The electric blue-coloured disc is often in my CD player. The booklet contains some background information for the tracks and you get the words to Because the Night* & Easter to sing along to, if you wish!

And it is very hard not to!

13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Sept. 2000
Format: Audio CD
Of her early work, Easter is Patti's most accessible album and owing to the inclusion of Springsteen's beautiful "Because the Night" it became her biggest seller - she had managed to adapt her poetic gifts to appeal to a mainstream rock audience. Strong melodies and arrangements abound: Till Victory is Patti at her rousing, anthemic best while Babelogue followed by Rock 'n Roll Nigger is a hypnotic stream-of-consciousness rant. Other great tracks include Space Monkey, Privilege and Ghost Dance. Easter found a good balance between her commercial aspirations and artistic vision, and is recommended as a starting point for those who want to investigate the punk poetess.

This album is as near to perfection without sounding perfect as you come in my opinion! Patti and her band plays fantastic. The album is packed with strong lyrics and great instrumental work. Patti sings really well as always! This is with no doubt one of the best albums in her career, if not the best!

Lenny Kaye provides fantastic guitar playing as always, and on some songs you here a little more commercial sound than on most of her other records. For example on her only hit single "Because the night", but that doesnt hurt the album. This is a perfect collection of songs with a really strong poetic nerve.

Is Patti one of the best songwriters ever? Yes, no doubt. Buy it, listen to it, and feel the magic from this fantastic artist with a fantastic band who plays perfectly rough!
