Interesting album from the formative years of punk. "Horses" begins with the shedding of religion and being queer on "Gloria," then experiences and processes the death of a loved one with tracks "Redondo Beach" and "Birdland." On "Free Money" Smith expresses a desire to be a provider, while also sharing a desire to be a caregiver on "Kimberly." On "Break it Up" Smith explores the revelation of discovering oneself as a spiritual entity outside of her physical self. "Elegie" mourns the loss of someone who sacrificed themselves for something virtuous. "Land" really stumped me and I'm curious to see what ideas you guys come up with. But I could also be incredibly smooth brained, who knows. Subjectively its mostly not my flavor. I can see a lot of people being turned off by Smith's delivery. However, "Horses" succeeds in its mission to be an authentic and vulnerable experience, and even now in 2023, remains eclectic in its taste. For that I'll give it a 3.
