This review is from: Best Punk Album in The World...Ever (Audio CD)
I enjoy this double CD more with each litening. In 70s-80s heard most songs and so this is a good reminder.
I have always been focused on words with background driving beat.
There are so many good songs and some that are mediocre, but this double album is a real bargain, and I can say that I really enjoy most of it- brings back better memories as many of us recall how terrible music was before punk came on scene. We had great harmonies of 50s, 60s singers, then I had to put up with a lot of Hippy music, then prog rock, and of course, I couldn't stand disco and heavy metal, so for me this is great stuff.
It is hard anymore to know what is going on in music world as radio stuff is mass media garbage, but we do have bands with great words and driving instrumental work- Dropkick Murphys, Street Dogs, Rancid, Casualties, and so many more that I have never heard and will never be exposed to. Even as "old man" I still like this stuff.
Most songs on this double CD are from England but they are very good as the British way of speaking is a natural for punk, but Ramones Sheena is thrown in perfectly.
