    Marquee Moon LP (1977)

    Elektra ‎

Tom Verlaine is a guitar demigod. From the ringing wide open chords of the first 30 seconds, you know you're in for some shit. You got some punk attitude thrown in with some amazing lyrical (in all ways) songwriting and the whole album just has this nonchalance and restraint about it. You know these dudes could have just gone apeshit, but instead they leave you wanting more. It's even got a drum break hidden in here, but we won't get into that. Fuckin amazing record from start to back. I've never played this for anyone who hasn't been floored.
