The reason Horses is burned into my brain is because that was the first time I ever heard anything like it. If you rememeber, it was all about hard rock and early metal back then (which seems like last week). I was 15, ordered the cassette on a whim, because my mother joined that monthly record club...you know, they send you a cassette, hope you forget and charge you for it.
I put in the player I carried with me everywhere, put on the phones, and heard the voice, the poetry, "Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine", and I was hooked.
Yes...she has done better. But, on a personal level, it will always be my favorite.
But I really like "Rock and Roll Nigger" and "Because the Night".
