Ramones (2016 Remastered)
- CD 6020 R
The Ramones' self-titled debut is a justifiably adored album - not just one of the best albums to come out of the initial New York punk explosion of the mid-'70s, but one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time. Ramones is one of those rare records where there is not a single weak or out-of-place song. change ups like the bubblegummy near-ballad I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend and the uncharacteristically harsh 53rd and 3rd (an unsentimental song about Dee Dee Ramone's days as a teenage hustler) vary the album's sound and mood more than its detractors (and even some of its fans) maintain.
