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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great in parts, like all her others 22 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK everyone knows that Patti Smith albums have great bits and "difficult" bits. This is no exception. If you want rock'n'roll Patti, set your CD player to play Frederick , Dancing Barefoot and So You Want To Be A Rock'n'Roll Star. Maybe Broken Flag too. Rock'n'Roll Star is the most kickass cover version ever, specially considering the Byrds original was pretty good anyway.
I still listen to Frederick with tears not far away, maybe because I sing the lines "When I lay me down to sleep, Pray the Lord my soul to keep" to my kids now in the same way, and they take it as literally as maybe it was originally meant.
If you like poetess Patti (everyone has a time when they might) then Wave can still do it for you. And like the recent Q review (box set) said, who the hell these days could summon up the passion to claim that a good gig could be orgasmic, emetic and euphoric?
This record stands proud with all her others.

4.0 out of 5 stars The 4th album 15 Jan 2005
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After the spectacular Horses, Radio Ethiopia and Easter anything would have been a letdown. I love this album, however, for its great songs. Frederick is a poetic number with a lovely, hummable melody in the vein of Because The Night.
Dancing Barefoot is more experimental and rather haunting with an interesting tribal rhythm, whilst So You Wanna Be A Rock 'n Roll Star is a spirited version of the classic and Hymn is a fragile lullaby with Patti accompanying herself on a harp -it reminds me of The Jackson Song on "Dream Of Life."
For me the highlight of the album is Broken Flag, a solemn but powerful dirge about courage in adversity, about some early American heroine. The title track Wave is a spoken word delivery with gulls and ocean sounds and doesn't appeal to me at all.
I would say this album is essential for fans but not the correct entry point for someone just starting to investigate the talented Ms Smith. When it was released, the critics were unecessarily harsh - it has stood the test of time very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars DIFFICULT THIRD ALBUM 14 July 2000
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
After the spectacular "Horses" and "Easter" anything would have been a let-down. I love this album, however, for its great songs. Frederick is a poetic number with a lovely, hummable melody in the vein of Because The Night. Dancing Barefoot is more experimental and rather haunting with an interesting rhythm, whilst So You Wanna Be ... is a spirited version of the R&R classic and Hymn is a fragile lullaby with Patti accompanying herself on a harp or similar instrument - it reminds me of The Jackson Song on "Dream Of Life." For me the highlight of the album is Broken Flag, a solemn but powerful dirge about courage in adversity. The title track Wave is a spoken word delivery with gulls and ocean sounds and doesn't appeal to me. I would say this album is essential for fans but not the correct entry point for someone just starting to investigate the gorgeous Ms Smith.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good by any standard 16 Jan 2005
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Vinyl
Wave was considered a disappointment by the critics upon its release in 1979. But after the spectacular Horses, Radio Ethiopia and Easter, anything would have been a letdown. I love this album, however, for its great songs like Frederick - a poetic love song with a memorable tune in the vein of Because The Night.
Dancing Barefoot is more experimental and rather haunting with an interesting tribal rhythm, whilst So You Wanna Be A Rock 'n Roll Star is a spirited version of the classic and Hymn is a fragile lullaby with Patti accompanying herself on a harp - similar to The Jackson Song on Dream Of Life.
For me the highlight of the album is Broken Flag, a solemn but powerful dirge about courage in adversity, about some early American heroine. The title track Wave is a spoken word delivery with gulls and ocean sounds and is probably the weakest track on the album.
I would say Wave is essential for fans but not the correct entry point for someone just starting to investigate the talented Ms Smith. When it was released, the critics were unecessarily harsh - it has stood the test of time very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Milestones in rock 12 July 2013
By Tommi
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now that I can afford it I've begun to collect records I DJ'ed in the cellar of our dormitory in the 70/80's. This is a excellent start. Fairyqueen-dynamite is a definition of her music I read just in local newspaper. Smith is still going strong and she had a couple of concerts in Finland. If anyone can create a new sun Patti Smith is such person.
