Their best album!

Today I'm spending the day listening ALL the Ramones albums, in light of the final original member passing away - RIP and thanks fellas! :(

I've been listening to the Ramones since about 1983 and without shadow of a doubt this is their best album. It's jammed packed full of incredible songs and demonstrates the very best and breadth of what they do. This is the Ramones at the height of their evolution - well written lyrics, music, skilfully performed, produced and each song incredible in its own right. It's a lot more polished and arguably commercial (to die hard raw Ramones and punk fans) than their early albums, but still shows where they came from in songs like Animal Boy, Eat That Rat and Freak of Nature. The album also has brilliant slower songs like My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo goes to Bitberg) and Something To Believe In.

Throw in a few early songs like Commando, Beat On the Brat, Blitzkrieg Bop, etc and this IS their 'Best Of' album.

This album is easily a 10/10
