okay, the best Ramones album remains their debut with 'Leave Home' coming a close second but on this record The Ramones refine their original philosophy and go further beyond. so for Johnny Ramone's statement about not being able to write songs about cars & girls because none of The Ramones had cars or girls The Ramones on this album drive the point home with 'Go Mental'. elsewhere 'Don't Come Close' is The Byrds with a speed habit & the best song on the whole thing is 'I'm Against It' which remains to this day the ultimate punk music misanthropic statement. buy this CD & cherish the days when pop music actually meant something.

The fourth album from the punk legends and the first album with the edition of new drummer Marky. Although this is their fourth studio release and it is seen to not be as good as the other three studio releases ("Ramones", "Leave Home" and "Rocket To Russia"). This is wrong and I can tell you that it is just as good as the others. Having well reknown Ramones songs as "I Just Want To Have Something To Do", "I'm Against It" and "I Wanna Be Sedated" is not only the reason to buy this CD, it is full of equally as good songs. And with the remastered edition having some great bonus tracks like the Ed Stasium version of "Rock 'N' Roll High School" and a great live set of "Blitzkrieg Bop/Teenage Lobotomy/California Sun/Pinhead/She's The One", this is by far an essential purchase. Although if you are new to the Ramones, I would recommend "Ramones".

The usual fantastic, amazing, powerful music of the great Ramones! Best ever group on the planet and best voice, drummer ang guitar! I bought all the remasterized CDs and the sound is much better, clean and clear. And the New covers and internal parts in the case are just great with a lot of new photos! And there are a lot of more songs. Amazing music with RAMONES.

The fourth instalment from the greatest punk rock band ever! Not as stripped back as their first three but a classic none the less! Even better on vinyl. Some classic tracks on there too, "I wanna be sedated, I don't want you, she's the one and bad brain" if you haven't heard the ramones, do yourself a favour and get their first four records and "it's alive" the clash, pistols, damned and all the other English punk bands that surfaced after '76 have these guys to thank for influencing them!!!

ive gotta admit it that Ramones albums ( all worth their weight in gold ) do confound me ; one year one album will 'definitely be the best ' another time it will be a different one ; the truth is they are all sooooo great !! Still at the present time im in love with Road To Ruin ~ its mega dry production , its mega precise structure and playing ; the im against it attitude and the championing of mental illness ; its stoked full of classic songs ; The Ramones do it again is all i can really say . Awesome awesome awesome . ( somebody get me a doctor quick !!!!!) (: oh and ive heard of T.V dinners but the Ramones on "Questioningly" have " whisky bottle-movies on T.V " man that's a line .

A masterpiece of the punk rock genre. The first and best punk rock band at the peak of their career!

Along with they debut, this is probably my most listened too Ramones album. Cant really get much better than the likes of "Im going mental" and "I wanna be sedated" I want this album played at my funeral. Buy it!

Road to ruin, the Ramones fourth studio album is yet another effortless gem by "da bruddas". less speed filled than "The Ramones" or "Rocket to Russia", it still sits alongside them as classic albums. With songs like "I Just Want To Have Something To Do" and "Go Mental" the Ramones sound still remains, but Joey shows his true influences on "Needles and Pins" the searchers cover, which leads nicely to "end of the century" the next studio collaboration with Phil Spector.
In short, if you're a Ramones fan, you need this album

All the best Ramones hits in one place. This is just great from start to finish. I should have bought this ages ago. Still its never too late.

One of the best from the boys bit more varied than others. Can't believe that they are nearly all dead now
