|THE RAMONES- RAMONES|
|Ok, this is the Ramones at their best. Simple, 3-chord songs delivered at top speed with incredible energy. At a time when New York was the center of the punk movement, the Ramones were the leaders of the bunch, spawning a whole wave of imitators with this album.
Blitzkrieg Bop is probably their best (and most popular) song, but this album is filled with other great songs (Chainsaw, Havana Affair, and Judy is a Punk to name a few). And the great thing is, anybody can play these songs. That's what was so appealing about this album. Kids with no musial talent at all could get their anger and frustration out by using the patented Ramones 3-chord system.
This is a great album for any amatuer punk, or for the music fan in general, as it pretty much summed up the whole punk movement. And the great thing is, it only took them 17 days to record the album.
