A classic bit of punk rock from 1977, that classic year of punk. Whereas most of this New York City group's peers turned up the distortion, revved up the tempo, and stripped their songs down to tight three-chord anthems, Television did something startlingly different. Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd allowed themselves the space to develop clean, powerful, unexpected guitar leads. To top it off, Verlaine's songs were thought-provoking, memorable, danceable, and unlike anything else going. "Prove It" was the hit in England, but independent radio stations wore the grooves down on the title cut, "See No Evil," and the stunningly brilliant "Friction." --Percy Keegan

After some persuasion, Amazon sent a second copy. This one only skipped twice in See No Evil, and everything else was fine. But "only skipped twice" isn't good enough. This isn't a 20 yearold record from the Salvation Army. A brand new record, at a brand new price, should be flawless.
So there is evidently a flaw in this print, or else in the shipment or handling somewhere between Rhino and Amazon. Either way, I'll be very wary of Rhino records and records from Amazon in the future.
