Television: Adventure (Elektra)

Dave Schulps, Crawdaddy!, June 1978

TELEVISION USE the energy and the imagery of the Big Apple, cross-pollinating them with a musical vision akin to what was coming out of the West Coast – particularly the important L.A. bands like the Byrds, Doors and Love – back in the experimental days of 1967-68. Last year's debut album, Marquee Moon, firmly established Television's spirit. It was an album which definitely rocked, but which presented a unique sound and vision which, though not ‘commercial,’ at least approached rock unselfconsciously as popular music.
