Biography

The Ramones are the first punk rock band. Other bands, such as the Stooges and the New York Dolls, came before them and set the stage and aesthetic for punk, and bands that immediately followed, such as the Sex Pistols, made the latent violence of the music more explicit, but the Ramones crystallized the musical ideals of the genre. By cutting rock & roll down to its bare essentials -- ... Read more in Amazon's Ramones Store

Customer Reviews

That having been said, this is still a great album from song to song.
Mark Edward Manning
It's nice that this release of "Jungle" digs those out, but this is still the first Ramones album where the quality slipped off.
Tim Brough
Some truly great tacks are on here, if you're a Ramones fan, and who isn't, hello- this is a must have!

Normally I might be a little cynical about these re-issue CDs. I bought every Ramones record on vinyl when I was in high school. Then I later bought them on CD, and it wasn't all that long ago. Now they expect me to buy them AGAIN? Is this just a record lable/conglomerate trying to squeeze more money out of a band that never really achieved "financial success" for them? I don't know. What I do know is that these new re-releases are worth every damn penny I paid for them. Each booklet is packed to the gills with great photos and informative retrospectives on what was going on with the band around the time the album was recorded. Best of all, they include outtakes, demo versions, B sides etc. Casual fans should think twice before buying, but if you consider yourself a "Ramones fan" then you really need these re-issues.

Speicifically about Subterranean Jungle:

I think this is one of the Ramones' most underrated records. Their first three albums (Ramones, Leave Home, and Rocket to Russia) are clearly the most classic examples of the Ramones' sound. The fourth album, 1978's Road to Ruin, was the first time the Ramones went completely out of character, with the songs Needles & Pins and Questioningly. Not bad songs necessarily, but both were obvious attempts to soften their approach in order to get some radio airplay. The next album, 1980's End of the Century, was a full blown attempt at selling out. They hired Phil Spector who watered down the Ramones sound with an army of session musicians and bombastic over-production. Yet, there are still some excellent songs on the album. They then followed up with Pleasant Dreams in 1981, produced by Graham Gould of 10cc. Again, the songs are great, but they're castrated by the anemic production.

The Ramones' 7th studio album doesn't match their first album but nothing ever could. 1st albums by great bands are just that way. If you can only afford one Ramones album, buy the first, then find a way to buy more. (IMHO the only bad Ramones album is Acid Eaters.) Yes, the production on this one deviates from their trademark low-fi sound but it's good in its own way (and it beats the hell out of End of the Century, a real production cop out), SJ has some classic tracks: `Outsider', `Psychotherapy' as well as a dynamite cover of `Time Has Come Today' complete with Chambers Brothers-like cowbells. What I particularly like about SJ are the strong power pop songs like `I Need Your Love', `What'd Ya Do', `Somebody Like Me', `My-My Kind of Girl' and others. All very catchy, well sung, well played. All in all, this is another great effort. Buy the one with the bonus tracks.

The early '80s were a tough period for the Ramones. After seeing punk dissovle into New Wave, they tried to keep up with the trend without totally compromising their original punk sound. But after witnessing their lush experiment with 1980's "End of the Century" go wrong, the Ramones had a hard time finding their place. The following year's "Pleasant Dreams," and "Subterranean Jungle" didn't capture the attention the Ramones hoped that they would garner. This is a shame.
"Subterranean Jungle" -- in a word -- rocks. I would place it in the same CD juke-box rack with popular hard rock acts such as Green Day, Blink 182, Rancid, and Sum41, and it would not sound out-of-place. The guitar sound on "Jungle" is supreme -- tastefully layered and aggressive, and Dee Dee's bass nearly stands out as much as it did on "Ramones," providing a head-bopping, buzzy beat. The production does go over-the-top with the drums; the snare is so taut, you almost begin to believe that Marky is playing with brushes. Producers Glen Kolotkin and Ritchie Cordell tried to capture their late '60s bubblegum heyday, with the drum signatures, chimes, and Joey's croon. It works, but doesn't quite fit into the genre for which the Ramones are known.
That having been said, this is still a great album from song to song. "Time Bomb" hits a low point with questionable lyrical content (but then, "Jungle" is a brooding album), and "I Need Your Love" is a sleeper. The best of the album can be heard between the two '60s covers, "Little Bit O'Soul" and "Time Has Come Today." Even after that sequence, there are still gems like "My-My Kind of a Girl" and "Everytime I Eat Vegetables, It Makes Me Think of You," which shows that the Ramones could still joke light-heartedly about thorazine and shock treatment.

This has always been one of those Ramones albums that nobody pays much attention to, but I've always thought it's a gold mine. Some of their best songs are here: "In My Room," "Outsider," and the unreleased "Unhappy Girl" are among my all-time favorite Ramones songs. It seems like people sneer at anything of theirs that came after their late-'70s classics. Oh well. It's their loss. Skip the cover of "Time Has Come Today" and you've got an entire album of short, catchy but muscular power-pop tunes with the trademark Ramones chainsaw guitar and Joey's New Yawk vocals. This is great stuff, people.

This is the first of the re-masters that I gave any consideration to not purchasing. Even if this, the seventh albulm, is one of the weakest Ramones efforts, and not all would agree with that assessment, it's still easily within the top twenty per cent of rock released, and deserves its five stars.
The albulm begins with a jangle-punk cover of "Little Bit O' Soul", suggesting that Joey and Johnny have decided to hold on to the best of the pop sound of the last two albulms and put some Ramones energy back in. But the albulm doesn't fulfill that promise. The pop-influenced material on this albulm ("Somebody Like Me", "My-My Kind of Girl") sounds tepid, and Johnny's guitar still sounds tame when compared to their classic early material. This timidity undermines the more punk tracks ("Highest Trails Above", "In The Park") flattening the albulm into a pop-punk soupiness wherein float only a couple of really outstanding tracks ("Psycho Therapy", "Outsider"). "Time Has Come Today" could have been found on a 'Stones albulm. Before it sounds like I am panning what I labelled a five-star albulm, I should mention that this albulm is also an intriguing halfway-mark in the band's change in direction away from pop back to their punk roots and the sporting with harcore and metal that was to come. It's the Ramones. It's handled with a fun professionalism that rewards the fan by not straying from what we love about the band. Even if this albulm is, in some ways, a compromise, it only sounds like one when compared to their earlier brash punk and unforgettable pop lunacy.
The re-mastering on this albulm shows the same impressive expertise that its predecessors have.
