The third drummer of the legendary punk band, the Ramones, has been touring around with his new band for quite a few years now. His first album, Entitled, which came out a while ago, is simply incredible.
Punk has changed to a very different sound, and has almost died out all together by now. But this album brings back that classic punk sound circa the 70’s/80’s. Basically, he takes what the Ramones did, modernizes it, and gives us an intense punk album…the way punk should be.
The guitar tones are excellent. The drums tight and also great sounding. He’s not a great singer, but it works with the sound, giving us even more of a blast of that great old punk sound.
And if I’m not mistaken, Richie Ramone wrote and recorded all the instruments except for the bass guitar, so that’s awesome. We know he still has it and he’s eager to remind the world why punk is such a great form of music.
If you’ve been missing the punk glory days and have been itching to hear something new that resembles it, then this is the album for you! It’s definitely worth checking out.
