Patti Smith Fascinates Europe
Paul Gambaccini, Rolling Stone, 15 July 1976

New Musical Express drooled that Horses, her debut Arista album, was "better than... the first Beatles and Stones albums, better than Dylan's album." Melody Maker, in turn, snorted: "There's no way that the contrived and affected 'amateurism' of Horses constitutes good rock & roll."
