Album: End of The Century
. . .
While on paper, the concept of Phil Spector producing the Ramones must have made sense to everybody involved. These days, End of the Century just sounds like a fucking mess. The only reason it resonates at all 40 years later was that the songwriting was still pretty good, even if two of the best songs, “Chinese Rock” and and “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School,” predated the sessions and the other two — “Danny Says” and “Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio?” featured instrumentation that would have been unthinkable just a year prior.
