Peter Simonson from North London I agree with Mr Mullholland it's a repudiation of the endemic smack scene around CBGBs ex member Helll and then member Richard Lloyd both had habits. Narrativeg reads like Verlaine is contemplating copping and goes thru 3 phases waiting, hesitating then gives up "I ain't waiting" as opposed to Lou Reed
Ross from Brooklyn, NyMy cliche -- "epic." Agree with others here. I'll add that the guitar interplay of this band is unparalleled -- you gotta hear it....
S.d. from Denver, CoThis may be the only rock song about which I can honestly say, I've never heard anything quite like it before or since. So many artists, especially grunge songwriters and guitarists, have pointed to this as an inspiration, but no one has come close to emulating its indescribable quality. "Marquee Moon" is the consummate rock enigma.
Malicious Matt from SquatneyAwesome song. I dont know if its ahead of its time though, since I dont think anything better has happened since it was released, to be brutally frank.
Alessandro from Bassano Del Grappa, ItalyGreat album!!!!
Stacey from Houston, TxFor anyone who has not heard this song or album...download or buy it now! Considering this was created in the 70's...this was way ahead of it's time. Much like Lou Reed's music was in the late 60's. It's a long song..but well worth it!! Stacey "Seven" Madding -Houston
Racine from Truro, MaI usually don't have the patience for songs that are more than ten minutes long, but "Marquee Moon" is an exception because it is so incredible.
Griffin from New York, NyThis Song is absolutely phenominal. So is the rest of the album.
