Ramones "Rocket to Russia" LP (Clear Vinyl)
Despite carrying on the celebratory tone of The Ramones' debut and Leave Home in the likes of "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker", "Cretin Hop" a tribute to dirty Rockaway Beach and covers of The Trashmen and "Do You Wanna Dance?" Their third LP from 1977 displays a dark humor that's less jokey than the previous releases' goofs on bad mental health and dysfunctional relationships. the group's best-produced of its first three releases, Rocket... achieves an almost smooth texture thanks to a clean mix and increased use of Beach Boys-inspired vocal harmonies.
