I disagree with the All Music Guide review (above) in one respect: Marquee Moon was indeed an exceptional debut album, something immediately recognizable on the first playing which for this reviewer was in 1977. But Adventure was a lesser effort, it is a better record. Aside from Ain't That Nothin' the second effort did not have any obvious hits. But that's the beauty of it: there is nothing obvious about Adventure. I was not impressed when I bought it in 1978. I am now. I played it often in 1978 because there was something haunting about it. Over time some of Tom Verlaine's (nee Thomas Miller) poetic lyrics became personal favorites. The music is superb, the production understated (to good effect) and the lyric poetry first rate. If you like poetry - and punk aesthetics that mask real musical chops - this might be for you. I regard it as a masterwork and the best of any of Verlaine's albums: with or without Television.
