HAIL TO THE KINGS!
on 1 September 2010
Arguably the single-most influential force in the evolution of the punk rock genre into a major and important part of the global music domain - The Ramones are legendary and, alas gone for ever in mainly tragic circumstances.
But their tremendous legacy is permanently preserved in their hits, of which this is a comprehensive collection. I defy anybody whatever their musical preferences to listen to these tracks and not be wowed at the sheer pace, flowing rhythm and vibrancy that is produced by this unique group. Every track is a fine example of the originality and genius of The Ramones but as a personal pick I go for "Rockaway Beach", which encapsulates all aspects of their talents.
