AllMusic

Marquee Moon is a revolutionary album, but it's a subtle, understated revolution.

Pitchfork

Rhino and labels in the future will keep carbon-dating and explaining Marquee Moon, but sometime in the future, some Martian kid who can't get dates and hates sports will look past the plaque and sit in his room, blaring this music and wondering how life can possibly sound this great.

It's nice that I can now listen to television on headphones and I don't even have to watch it.

But I'm serious now. I spent the last two days practically listening to only K-pop from Youtube so this album was a great escape from it. Besides, every song on this album is fucking awesome so there's really nothing to talk about. Punk at its best.

Even though I wasn't overly big on Unknown Pleasures, I had a lot of fun with this album. The riffs are really catchy, the vocals are fun, and it's an overall super solid album. Some tracks weren't all that interesting compared to others but apart from that I really liked this.

favourite tracks: See No Evil, Venus, Friction, Marquee Moon, Torn Curtain

Marquee Moon features fantastic guitar work, and overall fantastic songwriting, throughout it's whole 8 tracks. This album is artistic, important and very representative of what post punk should sound like. It's fun and charismatic, which only adds to the already enjoyable listening experience.
Every song here is almost equally as good as the next one, which makes this a very solid album.
