Review by Rolling Stone
"Dream of Life is Patti Smith's first record in some nine years, and the first fruit of her artistic collaboration with her husband, Fred "Sonic" Smith. Playing in the late Sixties with the MC5, Fred Smith crafted a resonating sonic architecture: a soaring Gothic cathedral of electric-guitar harmonics, constructed on a foundation of gut-level rock & roll throb, which could induce listeners to surrender as in some ancient tribal rite. Together the Smiths began recording Dream of Life after spending years in a kind of retreat, raising a family."
