I found this record boring the first times I listened to it but I like it now. Not for impatient listeners.

Powerful, impressive arrangements. Even fascinating at times, as in Black Widow. Nice O'Riordan's vocals. But few great songs perhaps.
Ordinary Day is beautiful yet the sadness in the tune struggles against the hopeful lyrics. A moving song about the singer's small daughter.
When We Were Young is good too. Nice musically and it has certain lyrical depth.
Stay With Me is not bad. Music and lyrics try to help each other. In The Garden is dark, turbulent and intriguing. Human Spirit is not bad musically.
Pleasant Dreams (Expanded & Remastered) ~ Ramones

The songs are among the best ones I know by the Ramones. I also think Gouldman's production is excellent. Echoes from the 60's pop music meet the powerful Ramonian style and the result is this album. The bonus tracks include two outtakes from the recording sessions and the song 'Chop Suey': the three of them are really worth listening.
Yet I think the vocal harmonies often give the songs a melancholy shadow that prevents the album from having or reaching the "drive" or strength of other ones by this band.
