Hey! Ho! The Ramones Have Been Mastered for iTunes!
If you’re a fan of the Ramones, then you’re doubtlessly aware that their back catalog has been available digitally for quite some time, but their hook-heavy punk stylings sound better than ever now that they’ve been mastered for iTunes.
The albums that’ve received the mastering treatment stretch from their self-titled 1976 debut all the way up through 1987’s Halfway to Sanity, which – if you’re one of those people who absolutely, positively needs to know all the album titles – means that the other inclusions are Leave Home (1977), Rocket to Russia (1977), Road to Ruin (1978), End of the Century (1980), Pleasant Dreams (1981), Subterranean Jungle (1983), Too Tough to Die (1984), and Animal Boy (1986). Also in the mix: the two Sire Years sets which collect the band’s albums from 1976-1981 and, for a more expansive collection, from 1976-1989.
Trust us: the difference in sound is instantly audible and well worth the investment if you prefer your punk to be as pristine as possible.
