Weekly Vinyl – Ramones

Rocket to Russia
Ramones
(1977)

Rocket to Russia.
Appropriate given the times we live in.
But that’s not what this album is about.
It is about the exhilaration of being unencumbered by pre-set notions.
Really!?!?!?
This is bubble-gum pop dressed up as anti-establishment propaganda.
What?!?!?!?!?!
It is all this.
And more.
Rocket to Russia is a definitive album that everybody should have. Everybody at least should listen to this album as a complete entity. Don’t listen to just the “hits”.
I’m not gonna list them out. Every song is a gem. A short piercing gem.
Listen to the whole album.
Brilliant.
