5.0 out of 5 stars Tsunamis of Change, 28 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Ramones: Expanded And Remastered (Audio CD)
The big bang theory began with the emitting cries of joy when the needle stylus punctured the grooves on this album and the euphoric residue mainlined through the tinny speakers creating a warm ready brek glow of glee. As the album progressed it became an instant hit, requiring constant play to keep the world at bey, it was only a matter of time before I and everyone around became hooked on Beat on the Brat, Now I wanna Sniff, Blitzkrieg Bop, Basement; the metronomic supertanker of an album pushing all before.

The big bang sank nearly everything pre Ramones into the hidden albums section. They only came out at night, defamed chained prisoners of doodling excess banished to the nether regions of Cimmeria. Inside the dungeon of excess went Yes, Pink Floyd, Peter Frampton, Genesis, ELP, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, Wishbone Ash, Caravan the chains set to hard and heavy they have never been released for good behaviour.

The reason why is the Ramones liberated Fun, one finger salute exuberance, racket and roll orgy, dumb as an art statement, straight jeans leather jackets, white T's. Back to Basics Colonel Tom as opposed to the doodling sounds of the Bank Manager son.

These sounds are the roars of a tectonic shift as the cultural plates collided throwing up tsunamis of change. Out of the chaos new visions were formed, vistas and horizons shaped and moulded.

It was all done with guitar, bass and vocals by four men from New York who turned back to the Elvis spirit of 56 linked to the 60's punk snarl of bands such as the Sonics, Pretty Things, Searchers and the Rivieras. The Ramones just stripped it all back, added some New York attitude and relaunched the rock and roll party of John Waters as opposed to the brand leader Roger Waters.

Too much knowledge of geography and physics required to understand this review, but I think that the reviewer likes it (but probably not as much as some nice Kardst scenery ....)

Being thick was a Ramonian one finger salute to the world; you weren't meant to swallow it as a life statement.
