Adventure

Genre: Reissues; Producer (group): Elektra

Musically proficient, with songs that ambled and shape-shifted, Television provided pyrotechnic neo-prog kicks for ’70s New York punk scene-sters. Their first album, 1977’s ”Marquee Moon,” was one of the era’s masterworks, a multilayered thrill ride of interlocking stun-gun guitars and leader Tom Verlaine’s nervous vocals. ”Adventure” suffers in comparison only because it isn’t seminal; the material sags in spots, and there’s less urgency in the playing. But it’s still good; think of it as the band’s chill-out CD. (Both feature alternate cuts.)
