This album was completely different from everything else coming out at that time, but it still managed to sound like a simple, straight forward rock album. Also it inspired everything from the 80's.

From chivocosmico 11/04/2017 12:12
Unlike their contemporaries at the legendary CBGB, Television had the desire to take their music further than the fast simple three-chord songs that were en vogue, choosing instead elaborate riffs, complex guitar interplay and virtuosic solos but managing to keep the spontaneity and juvenile intensity that characterized the punk movement. Marquee Moon is post-punk before such term was even coined.

Only recently discovered this severely underrated album, and its high position on this site is testimony to the quality taste of its users. Absolutely brilliant songs. Venus is my favorite, 'I fell right into the arms of Venus de Milo'!

Amazing how underrated this is among the masses.

Probably one of the best post-punk albums, and one of the creators of alternative. It's crazy how much these guys influenced other bands such as The Strokes

I finally discovered this gem. May be turning 40 next year, but it sounds so fresh. Definitely needs more recognition. This is garage rock over 20 years before the garage rock trend. Solid all the way through.

Lucky to be a teenager when this came out. 1977 was a banner year for rock music. One of the greatest guitar albums of all time, one of the greatest psychedelic albums of all time. I got to see Television live and dance with my girlfriend to Marquee Moon. Life doesn't get better than that.
