iTunes Editors’ Notes

Latter-day Ramones albums are often looked down upon in comparison to their first three or four releases, which wrote the manual on punk rock. But The Ramones had put together such a foolproof formula that even when they weren't operating at full power—in this case, without original bassist and chief songwriter Dee Dee Ramone—they were still capable of highlights that other bands dreamt about. Dee Dee contributed from the bench, and his “Poison Heart” (cowritten with veteran producer Daniel Rey) is as great as anything the band ever cut. (Ed Stasium produced this set.) The cover of The Doors' “Take It As It Comes” led to the group’s decision to release an album of ‘60s covers (Acid Eaters). Joey Ramone handled much of the writing, and while “Censors**t” dealt with politicians’ wives who demanded warning labels on albums (now standard procedure), songs like “Cabbies on Crack” and “Heidi Is a Headcase” reach back to The Ramones' core silliness, which made them an ampful of fresh guitar in the first place.

EXCELLENT

an excellent album from one of the few REAL punk bands BLINK 182 IS NOT PUNK RAMONES SEX PISTOLS THE CLASH ARE!!!!!!

Mondo Bizzaro

One of the unheard jems from the Ramones. The songs main man and Strength to endure are my personal highlights. A disc for the true Ramones fan.

Don't listen to Music8man

I don't care what he says. This is a really underrated record. CJ brought new life to the ramones. I'd get this record just for Poison heart and take it as it comes. Music8man is an idiot.

The Ramones were the first punk rock band. Other bands, such as the Stooges and the New York Dolls, came before them and set the stage and aesthetic for punk, and bands that immediately followed, such as the Sex Pistols, made the latent violence of the music more explicit, but the Ramones crystallized the musical ideals of the genre. By cutting rock & roll down to its bare essentials — four chords; a simple, catchy melody; and irresistibly inane lyrics — and speeding up the tempo...
