Television - Adventure (1993) Retail CD
Television's follow-up to the astounding and hugely influential classic Marquee Moon, this was hastily-recorded and as a result suffered in comparison. It was released too soon after Marquee Moon and consequently, critics still reeling from Marquee Moon's brilliance gave it a panning. But with the opportunity to look at this album from a fresh viewpoint, it quickly becomes clear that it is actually a fine work itself. Of course, it isn't as good as Marquee Moon (hardly anything is), but it's a different kind of album. Where Marquee Moon was angular and more than a little funky, this is smoothmore… and laid-back, with Marquee Moon's Torn Curtain and Guiding Light seemingly providing the blueprint for several of its songs. All the Television hallmarks are there - Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd's virtuoso guitar teamwork, Verlaine's strangulated vocals, and Billy Ficca and Fred Smith's tighter-than-tight rhythm section. However where it falls slightly is that whereas every single track on Marquee Moon could be considered a standout, here, the only real standouts are Foxhole, with its slightly Stones-y stylings, and The Dream's Dream, the beautiful, almost psychedelic closer. While none of the tracks are any less than good, the majority of them fall short of true excellence, and it is clear that if they had taken longer over the album rather than rushing it out, they could have equalled, and perhaps even bettered Marquee Moon.This is, though, not to detract from Adventure, which is still a very good album, and a better one than many bands could ever hope to produce. But if you're new to Television, Marquee Moon is still the starting point.
