This album was one of the highest rated by critics as well as other musicians. It has not just influenced punk,and new wave,but it pretty much influenced alternative and indie music as well.
Thank God some of the more intelligent radio dj's in the indie music are still letting folks know through playing songs from them now,that pretty much sound like all the current songs, over 30 years later.Marquee Moon was critically acclaimed upon its release and achieved unexpected commercial success in the United Kingdom, but sold poorly in the United States. It has since been viewed by critics as one of the greatest albums of the American punk rock movement and a cornerstone of alternative rock. The band's innovative post-punk instrumentation on the album strongly influenced the indie rock and new wave movements of the 1980s.Always hearing them inspires me.
