Rating:  
90/100
From IvanIke 08/28/2015 13:21
For these ears, Marquee Moon ranks easily amongst the top 30 of all-time best rock/pop albums.

Across its eight songs, the songwriting is perfect, also the interplay of the two guitars, and the voice of Tom Verlaine.

Influences? Psychedelic jamming of classic guitar bands such as the Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead and Quicksilver, but with the raw energy of punk. And timeless songs.

Their second album "Adventure" also contains some great songs, but the overall level of intensity is a bit lower.

Then Television disbanded, Tom Verlaine pursuing an interesting solo career, but with only a few songs equaling those on Marquee Moon.

Marquee Moon and Adventure are both really great. Still, I think it's funny that one album is in the top fifty, and the rest are below 5,000.

Incredible proto punk bank known mostly for "Marquee Moon", yet their 2nd effort is also a landmark release.

If MARQUEE MOON were their only album, this band would receive at least a 90 from me. However, their follow-ups just didn't have the imagination, charm, and originality that the first attempt had.
