Description
The chaos and beauty of contemporary life are reflected in the poetic lyrics and exploratory spirit of rocker Patti Smith's first album since 2004. Its highlights include an overture evoking the voyage of Amerigo Vespucci to the New World in 1497 ("Amerigo"), a rock song for the people of Japan in the wake of last year's earthquake ("Fuji-san"), a ballad in memory of Amy Winehouse ("This Is the Girl"), an improvised meditation on art and nature ("Constantine's Dream"), and a birthday song written for Johnny Depp ("Nine").

"I was struck by how literate her lyrics were, how intellectual and political. I loved how, in her songs, she talked about anything other than the love in her heart for a man…. She was the complete opposite of the images that were pumped into me as a child, of what I was supposed to aspire to as a woman. She is a folk artist, in the way that Bob Dylan is. I loved that she was a poet involved in visual art. It wasn't just about the music for her…. I felt that Patti's goal was to use her art to bring comfort and grace—to me, personally."— Shirley Manson, Rolling Stone, "100 Greatest Artists of All Time"
