R.E.M. - And I Feel Fine...
(Capitol 242981 EU-08 275:-)

Credited as the original purveyors of archetypal, college-oriented Jangle Pop, R.E.M. have released more than a dozen albums of genuine quality over the course of their ongoing career. Michael Stipe's warm, tattered mumbling, Peter Buck's Byrds-inspired, jangling hooks, Bill Berry's ham-fisted timekeeping, and Mike Mills' perfect harmonies in fact created a crisp, melodic pop sound that remains timeless.

2CD + DVD Edition.
Ramones - Subterranean Jungle
(Warner WPCR-12728 Jap-07 200:-)

Tentatively returning toward punk, or at least new wave, the Ramones turned in their most enjoyable record since ROCKET TO RUSSIA with SUBTERRANEAN JUNGLE. Producers Ritchie Cordell and Glen Kolotkin were the heads of the edgy power pop and punk label Bomp!, so they steered the Ramones back toward the '60s pop infatuation that provided the foundation for their early records. It's a strategy that pays off well — for the most part, the group's originals are so punchy and catchy that they make the pair of covers superfluous.

Ramones - Too Tough to Die
(Warner WPCR-12729 Jap-07 200:-)

With the Ramones' original drummer, Tommy Erdelyi, producing, the group returns to simple, scathing punk rock on TOO TOUGH TO DIE. The group takes the big guitar riffs of SUBTERRANEAN JUNGLE and makes them shorter and heavier. The Ramones' rhythms are back up to jackhammer speed and the songs are down to short, terse statements. The results read like a reaction to hardcore punk, but the Ramones are more melodic than any hardcore band, as well as smarter than most.
