商品説明

After the breakthrough success of Nirvana's Nevermind in 1991, it seemed (at least for a while) that many of the tributaries of the American punk movement might finally have a chance to break through to a larger audience, and a number of seminal bands from the salad days of punk and new wave made reunion albums, imagining they might have a better chance to be heard than they did in the 1970s or '80s. Television were an especially strong example of a band whose influence and reputation far outstripped their commercial impact, so it's not that surprising that the group decided to reunite in 1992 and see if the mass audience might finally be prepared for them. However, Television's intricate guitar attack and elliptical melodies would have been a hard sell under ideal circumstances, and it didn't help much that the group's comeback disc, simply called Television, sounded even less approachable than the music of their masterpiece, Marquee Moon. With its skeletal melodies, starkly dynamic arrangements, and cryptically witty lyrics, Television sounds like one of Tom Verlaine's post-1982 solo albums more than anything else, but with one important difference -- here, Verlaine is working with a second guitarist who is actually worth his while, and while on this set everyone seems to follow Verlaine's lead, with Richard Lloyd on hand to trade licks with Tom, and Fred Smith and Billy Ficca holding down the rhythm section with unobtrusive strength, it's easily the strongest record Verlaine made since Dreamtime in 1981. Anyone wanting to know why Television were one of the most important bands of their time needs to start with Marquee Moon, but if you want further proof that Verlaine and Lloyd truly bring out the best in each other's guitar work, this album will certainly help. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

1stには及ばないものの、トムのソロを通じての再結成でこれだけ良いアルバム作ってるのはスゴイ。92年発表ってことで以前のアルバムより音がクリーンなのも曲の魅力をさらに上げてるような気がする。なぜ国内版が廃盤になってるのかが謎。トムのソロよりまずこのアルバムの復刻が先でしょ。

テレヴィジョンの再結成アルバム。このアルバムは、個人的には、大好きなアルバムです。1stのテンションの高さはないけれども、このアルバム独特の、まったりとしたビート感覚には、1stにはない気持ち良さを感じてしまいます。却って1stより、好きかもしれない。オススメです。

う〜ん、トムの高音が聴けないのが寂しい、語り口調の曲がちょっと多いなど「Marquee Moon」で虜になったものとしては物足りなさが残る内容。コレクターズ・アイテムかな。

Television

Television were one of the most creative bands to emerge from New York's punk scene of the mid-'70s, creating an influential new guitar vocabulary. While guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd liked to jam, they didn't follow the accepted rock structures for improvisation -- they removed the blues while retaining the raw energy of garage rock, adding complex, lyrical solo lines that recalled bo
