Sound — 9
The sound of the Ramones has always been and always will be the loud and fast breakthrough of punk. Many other bands who contributed to punk's coming out would be the Sex Pistols, Clash, etc. So if you're looking for a true punk-rock sound then your looking not only at the right band but definitly in the right area of punk. This CD comes with many stories and bios of all the band members. Interviews with each contain stories of how songs came to mind and many other tales. So if you're looking for a CD with almost everything (music, stories, bios, pictures) then this is the CD to get.
Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are all the same as they used to be. "Hey, Ho, Lets Go!" is the first song on the CD so it gets you right into the Ramones. The chant really pumps you up as well as the lyrics. Every song after the first is picked from all of the best songs of the Ramones. 30 songs for only around $15? Seems like a great deal to me. Everything is the same with the Ramones music, tone, and loudness. Everything is simply Ramones.
Overall Impression — 10
Well the Ramones Toughist Hits obviously takes hit songs from every album they produced. Songs such as "Hey, Ho, Let's Go!", "I Wanna Be Sedated", and "Judy Is A Punk." I love this Ramones album because I was never able to buy all of their CDs, so when this Toughest Hits came out I was very excited because now I got to listen to the Ramones' songs and hits from all of their CDs only for $15! To tell you the truth I really don't hate anything about this CD. It's great! If I lost this CD I would definitly go out and buy another one because now I'm totally hooked on the Ramones.
