Biography

The Ramones are 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 -- ... Read more in Amazon's Ramones Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ramones Acid Eaters 4 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album is definately one of the best ramones albums released. From the first track to the very last every track is brilliant. The Ramones still are the godfathers of punk and anyone who considers themself a Ramones fan will need to buy this album. The opening track of the album "Journey To The Center Of The Mind" remains to be one of my favourite songs of all time and it sets the standard throughout the album. Also on the album is two amazing covers of great songs, the first on "substitute" a very good song by The Who which has had a special ramones twist on it and it works really well, what a good song. The second cover is "Somebody to Love" originally by Jefferson Airplane, but now a Ramones song in its own right, one of my favourite songs on the album. This album should be in any Ramones fans CD rack, the entire album is great to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 5 Jun 2000
By "gsibbery" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A record full of tracks that influenced the Ramones, it is the more unexpected songs here that are the best. "Somebody To Love", "My Back Pages" and "Journey To The Center of the Mind" are great, while there are no really bad songs on the tape. Nobody can make a song sound the way the Ramones can, so if anybody out there likes oldies, but ever thought that they somehow lacked energy, this album might change your mind. It was the best Ramones album released in years when it came out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take It As It Comes... 9 Oct 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The title of my review comes from a track on Mondo Bizarro (which I also own and love). Yeah some folk get heated because it is a album of covers and they might have come to it with the mind frame of wanting new material---but weighing it on its own will let you find a really fun album.

Pick up Mondo Bizarro while you are at it and have some fun!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars "Acid Eaters" is a trip. 19 Sep 2004
By H3@+h - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I admit, this isn't the best "Ramones" disc ever, but it's something fun. I actually think half of these covers work really well, it's the other half that's just so-so. Overall I'd call this a must for the fanatic, but others could pass on it. I will say this though, most cover songs usually make me want to hear the artist covered, but in this case, I just want to hear more "Ramones".

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a homage to their heroes 1 Dec 2004
By Dj Garza [ in the mix ] - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The greatest thing about The Ramones is their total lack of pretentions. They simple want to rock and that's all. But that's something very important. No matter if some of the songs on Acid Eaters are classic radio classics (in the other hand there are some pretty obscure numbers) cos' all of them really rock.

Journey to the Center of the Mind by the Amboy Dukes (with a very young Ted Nugent on the line-up), Substitute with Pete Townshend as guest singing back ups is simply amazing, as well as Marky drumming. My Back Pages is taken from the version that the Byrds did in their Younger Than Yesterday album instead of the 3/4 tempo of the original Another Side of Bob Dylan version. When I Was Young is another "hidden treasure" cos it's a single of the second-era Animals when they were called Eric Burdon & The Animals circa 1967.

Not a single bad song on the album. Essential purchase. Do yourself a favour and go quickly to find the originals. Satisfaction guaranteed.
