Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the second posthumous solo album from the former Ramones frontman. Ya Know? adds a significant new chapter to the seminal punk icon's hugely influential body of work. The tracks were drawn from a cache of demos and unreleased recordings that Joey had a cut at various times during the last decade and half of his life. But this is no half-baked grab-bag of odds and ends. It's a riveting collection of previously unheard songs that embody Joey's trademark intensity, wit and infectious hooksmanship, and that will stand proudly alongside his most beloved Ramones compositions. The cast of guest players includes Joan Jett, who lends her distinctive voice and guitar to "21st Century Girl" and Little Steven Van Zandt, who plays guitar on "Party Line" and wrote the album's poignant liner notes, along with such notables as former Ramones drummer Richie Ramone, Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick, Dennis Diken of the Smithereens, Richie Vincent, seasoned New York punk axeman Al Maddy, veteran pop producer/musician Kenny Laguna, saxophonist Arno Hecht of the Uptown Horns, and members of the Ramones' punk-era contemporaries The Dictators.

A major travesty in life has been rectified. Eleven years after the heartbreaking passing of the frontman of the greatest American rock and roll band, we are treated with fifteen lovingly completed works left behind by legend Joey Ramone. Naturally I was over the moon with the news that there was to be a second Joey Ramone album, and I fought off skepticism that material released now would not live up to the quality work of the Ramones and Joey's brilliant and beautiful solo album Don't Worry About Me. These feelings were more than blown away upon the first listen to this album. Joey sounds incredible, the backing musicians sound wonderful, the production sounds very clean and modern. From my previous experience hearing new tracks done with old vocals, I loved the Beatles recording "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love" with John Lennon's old track, but was unhappy with the fidelity, and I worried the same would befall these cuts. Nothing doing, Joey sounds as alive as ever here! And the mix is spot on, Joey is upfront and confident, all the instruments are crisp and can be pinpointed in the stereo mix. I listened to the CD with over-ear headphones, I bet the vinyl's even better.

You can really feel the love that was put into making this album honor Joey and his incredible love and respect for rock and roll. From friends like Richie and Jean from Plasmatics, Joan Jett, Richie Ramone, Bun E Carlos, Ed Stasium, Andy Shernoff and Little Steven, the album sounds like a consistent album on a whole and not a collection of leftovers. Most songs are mid-tempo power rock and roll (not exactly punk or hard rock), and very engaging.

I'm loving Joey's second (posthumous) solo album.It is great to hear Joey's voice again, singing these new songs.Ya Know is not just a punk album-there is a lot of range here.The 15 songs also flow exceptionally well together with a top notch production.

The album kicks off with the upbeat "Rock N Roll is the Answer".A very rocking song to get you going."Going Nowhere Fast" and New York City" could have been on a Ramones album.The anthemic latter is like a punk rock "Empire State of Mind" (with lyrics like "The Ritz and the Cat Club,Pyramid and Limelight").Other highlights for me include "Seven Days of Gloom"("Seven days of gloom,here in my room.If it wasnt for Stooges my life would be doomed").Great song with backing vocals by the handsome one Dick Manitoba.The Phil Spectorish "Party Line" is just a heavinly song Joey sings with Holly Beth Vincent of Holly and the Italians.Then there is the honkeytonk punk of "I Coudn't Sleep" and the country-influenced "Waiting for That Railroad".The album closes with the pretty acoustic version of "Life's a Gass" with chimes that sounds very bittersweet.

Ya Know? is a truly must have for every Ramones fan (or rock fan in general).

This caught my eye at my local record store , Fingerprints music in Long Beach CA, and I took a chance today... and I am glad. I've always enjoyed The Ramones and I remembered liking what I thought was Joey Ramones final album Don't Worry About Mewhich seemed to be released near his death and featured a very touching version of "a Wonderful World". As far as this new album...I enjoyed it first listen as I was putting it into my itunes and have listened now three times. Joey's voice is in fine form and the songs and production are to my ears first class and while it holds together well as an album features nice variety. I'd recommend it to his fans without any reservations. I imagine some hard core fans might think this is too pop and not punk enough...but I like both sides of his history.

11 years after Joey's death, it's good to see people care enough about putting out classic "Joey Ramone" songs (these are not Ramones songs). I love seeing very cool people paying homeage to him, especially his real brother Mickey Leigh, plus Tommy Ramone, Anthony Bourdain, Andrew W.K., etc... Joey 's been gone but not forgotten, GABBA GABBA HEY, highly recommend!!

I will tell you the story behind this album. Producer Daniel Rey had possession of several demos that Joey Ramone recorded before his untimely passing. Joey's family asked for the demos, but Rey refused to turn them over. So a lawsuit was brought against Rey. Several years later, a settlement was reached and the family got the demos. Additional instruments and vocals were added to the demos to give them a fuller sound. They did a good job of making an album that Joey would have been proud of.
