Television – Marquee Moon

I FUCKING ADORE THIS RECORD. Straight out of CBGB, Television showcases the beginning of post-punk and the derivation of punk towards artistic pretentions, rather than just revolutionary statements. The instrumentals are what sell this album to me: the guitar work is just amazing and game-changing in the genre; the bass and drums, directly inspired from jazz, give a unique pace to the record. Songwriting-wise and performance-wise, this record NEVER gets boring. Overall, an amazing experience. 10/10.
