From Sonoffatboy 04/10/2018 21:41
Civilization was invented over 5000 years ago, so that one day, this album, with these songs would be made. Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd invented 80s and 90s alternative rock with their soulful sentimental playing, more technical then punk but not pretentious or egotistical of metal or hard rock, they weave layers of mystery in just the simple chords they play. Backed by an equally talented rhythm section of Ficca and Smith they were the perfect unit that gelled jazz improvisation with rocks energy. A true original.

An album worthy of the highest praise. The extremely solid rhythm section, pounding riffs and soaring lead guitar, coupled with cheeky and catchy lyrics capture on of the most influential and groundbreaking albums of the 70s. It is bursting with cool. The chief seminal work of the CBGB scene.

An album I had not heard of until recently. I don’t know why this album isn’t more well-known. I found it quite extraordinary. No rating until I am more familiar with it. I am just excited about my next listen.

Disco epocale come pochi, "Marquee moon"; il classico esempio di come un musicista possa riversare tutte le proprie idee in un unico progetto per poi campare di rendita, vivacchiare o sparire.

This is a pretty cool album. It's not all on the level of the title track, but pretty cool nevertheless.

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.
