For me Go Mental and I Wanted Everything are the best tracks on this album. Only just behind Rocket to Russia.

First album with Marky replacing Tommy, almost as good as the first three.

From Decurso
Definitely much more pop oriented than than their first three albums, but it works well.It's probably best known for I Wanna Be Sedated, but everything here is good.

From Bork
I believe you miss out on the historical context if you call Ramones a pop band, and even by today's standards the music is too aggressive and the vocals too snotty to be considered pop. That said, this is another solid punk-rocker although not reaching the same heights as the self-titled debut or Rocket to Russia.

From jjstraka
People want to talk about the Ramones as a "punk" band which does them no justice. Yes, they pretty much invented punk but that was more of an accident. The Ramones were a pop band more than anything, and since this is their most sing-along album, it is also their best.

Whenever I think about cruising around with my friends in high school, this is the first album/8-track I think of. Good times!
