Latte + – Everybody Listens to the Ramones Even My Mom

You know, sometimes things just happen to live up to their name; and actually do what it says.

With a name like “Everybody Listens to the Ramones Even My Mom,” you expect an album that’s heavily influenced by the Ramones; and that’s exactly what you get. This album sounds like it could be a continuance of the Ramones legacy, if Joey’s empty seat was filled by Weird Al Yankovic (once I heard it during track #7, “Stitches,” I couldn’t un-hear it… and it’s awesome!), and the band got just a little more “surfy.”

I would say that this album is a fitting tribute to the old school from the semi-new school, in the form of solid emulation of style and technique; while injecting their own personalities into the music, with splashes of humor and a different vocal style from the originals. As a band, Latte+ proves that they’re still cranking out quality, even after 21 years!
