Review by Rolling Stone
"This album – like "Gone Again," Patti Smith's 1996 memorial to her dear departed – is alive with ghosts: the patient spirits bearing silent witness in "Waiting Underground"; the young soldier who is incinerated in a copter crash and propelled to eternal peace by Smith and her stampeding band in the long, loud studio improvisation "Memento Mori"; the late Allen Ginsberg, whose "Footnote to Howl" is the lyric meat of "Spell."

From New Yorker (2002-03-11)
"The elegiac and political themes of Smith's later work dominate this album, which is dedicated to William Burroughs, who died just as it was completed."
