Ramones- Greatest Hits: Review

Saturday, August 12, 2006

Honestly, I was never really a Ramones fan. This Greatest Hits most definitely changed my mind. I have finally been able to recognise their influence on the progression of music.

Here's the review

When Creem magazine reviewed Leave Home in 1977 they wrote, "The Ramones are the tradition-smashing, door-opening Beatles of New York Rock". They went on to say the Ramones have paved the way for a new era in rock n roll. Of course they were talking about punk and the associated sub-culture. With their simple four-cord structure, they fast became the leaders of a music revolution.
This Greatest Hits compilation displays, better than ever the simplicity of the Ramones sound. Opening with ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, the album runs through countless classics, including ‘Sheena is a Punk Rocker’, ‘Rockaway Beach’ and ‘I wana be Sedated’. Also included are a few not so well known tracks, like the Barry/ Greenwich/ Spector written ‘Baby, I Love You’. The album closes out with ‘Pet Semetary’ and the 1985 hit ‘Wart Hog’
Dedicated to Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee, this is a must for any fan yet to own the entire Ramones back catalogue.
