of life 1988
Review by Rolling Stone
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."
