13 years after disbanding, Television reunited for this self-titled 1992 release. The band's sound is still built around Tom Verlaine's songs, in which his guitar and Richard Lloyd's entwine around one another like contrasting ribbons. Verlaine's vocals function like another element in the beautiful fray, bobbing up to the surface, then disappearing back into the sea. Lyric fragments are glimpsed rather than framed. This album sounds remarkably like this band's two previous studio works, MARQUEE MOON, from 1977 and ADVENTURE, from 1978. The album has a crisp sound throughout, as the denser passages have a layered clarity, and the more open passages revel in the warmth of longer notes.
