Review by Rolling Stone
becomes electric. In every way musically, lyrically and, for Patti Smith,
quite literally Gone Again is a record about the cycle of life, death and
rebirth, an acutely personal expression of prolonged grief in which surviving
the worst of it is possible only by cutting to the heart of it."
From New Yorker (2002-03-11)
"On the first album in Smith's "comeback"
after the death of her husband, in 1994, she was accompanied by Jay Dee Daugherty
and the guitarist Lenny Kaye, from her old group, and Tony Shanahan on bass guitarthe
three musicians who, along with Oliver Ray, would become Smith's new band. Her
voice is better than ever, darker and musically more adept."
