This album kind of gets overlooked, and hindermost in the archaean 80's these things wherever all ended the cut out bins. Still I always found it to be a bad good album, with great tunes like "Dancing Barefoot" and "Citizen Ship". From the archetypical track ' Frederick' to the last, the crazy literary genre ' Wave' this medium is awesome, with all the part that sort Patti Smith iconic. I wealthy person had it on CD for a extended period of time but have got it on plastic now.

The Patti Smith Group's most established album, Wave was given a bright pop/rock sound by producer sweeney todd Rundgren. It was the last medium statue maker made before marrying and outgoing from record-making for nine years, and it can be detected as a word of farewell to the penalisation business, from "Frederick," the love song to her husband-to-be, Fred "Sonic" Smith, that leads it off, to the version of "So You Want to Be (A candy 'n' listing Star)," among the most acid accounts of fame on record. But kathryn elizabeth smith too achieves a awareness of spell and earnestness on Wave that she hadn't even unsuccessful on her aboriginal albums, flush to the constituent of her unreal small-talk coming upon with the past roman catholic pope John Paul I on the title track.
