Ramones - Rocket to Russia (2001) Retail CD
Until you've heard the Ramones, it's easy to dismiss the music as 'punk', as that's what pretty much everyone describes it as, but then you would be missing something important - this is not punk in any respect other than they were part of the New York punk scene in the mid 70's. The Ramones would be the first ones to admit that they couldn't really play their instruments that well, but rather than learn to play better or disguise the lack of ability with shock values as their peers did, they simply played within their limits and stayed there.This is probably the best starting point for anyonemore… new to the Ramones, as it contains so many of their best songs. By the time they reached this album (their third), they had hit the right formula for songwriting, and wrote some great pop songs. It must seem strange to hear that - pop songs from a punk band? This is no ordinary band though!If 'Rockaway' beach had been recorded by a west coast surf act in the 60's, it would have become a huge hit around the world, and if 'Sheena is a Punk Rocker' didn't have the heavily distorted guitar, it could have been a bubblegum pop hit in the late 60's or early 70's. However, that wasn't the case, and we were lucky enough to get the Ramones as they were, warts and all.Every song here is a fantastic piece of melodic songwriting within a DIY minimalist wall of sound wrapper. It's almost impossible to be with a group of friends and not find at least one that likes the Ramones. The main reason that most people don't like the Ramones though is that they haven't heard them yet...
