You might think that Television only made one album such is the lordation given to 'Marquee Moon'. This is their second album which, its safe to say, didn't do quite as well at the time both critically and commercially. It has a softer more layered sound which has more of a 60's West Coast vibe and could easily be seen to influence the nascent REM. Verlaine's voice is still as wiry and ragged but this sweeter side of Television should not be overlooked. Long awaited vinyl re-issue on Rhino.

8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 18th October 2014
It's such a shame that "Adventure" was so overshadowed by the masterpiece that is "Marquee Moon" but if that is worth 9 or 10/10 then "Adventure" is worth an 8/10. In my opinion, "Adventure" contains Television's best song - "Days" which has the most beautifully resolving riff. "Foxhole" is also superb. This album should be bought, listened to and cherished, because despite its diminutive status next to its big brother, it's still great.
