They decided to shake loose the constrictions of their style by making an unabashed pop album, yet it was odd that Phil Spector produced End of the Century, because his painstaking working methods seemingly clashed with the Ramones' instinctual approach. However, the Ramones were always more clever than they appeared, so the matching actually worked better than it could or should have. Spector's detailed production helped bring Rock 'n' Roll High School and Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? to life, yet it also kept some of the punkier numbers in check.
