Chicago’s Mooster Records returns with (presumably, given the title) its second compilation of pop flavoured punk rock, featuring twenty bands, eighteen of which are from the USA and two from elsewhere (Brazil and Holland). My initial thoughts when playing this for the first time is that, if Ramones had never existed then releases like this would never have happened. That’s not a criticism, just an observation as the first few bands display more than enough Ramones-like qualities (especially The Connection) to have me a bit worried for the album as a whole. However, as the CD spun some more, there were enough variations in the music to ensure that it didn’t blend into a total Ramones love-in.
