Patti Smith: Banga
Buy! - (Columbia)
The legendary New York singer-songwriter’s 11th album is one of her finest latter-day releases. Now 65, she sounds re-energized on smartly crafted, ritualistic rock songs packed with literary, musical, historical and religious references, combining bright, lyrical guitar lines from her longtime band mate Lenny Kaye and Television’s Tom Verlaine (who contributes some luminous solos to a couple of songs) with her incantatory delivery and poetic, hyper-literate lyrics. 6/8/2012 - Don Yates
