The Dialtones - The Dialtones (Sweden)
|Label:||Screaming Apple Records
Back In The City Tonite
Take Me Back(To My Girl On Time)
The Dialtones self titled debut album is in my opinion one of the better punk records released in the last couple of years. Unlike many so-called punk bands, these guys understand and have captured the true spirit of the Ramones. Even with most songs coming in under 2 minutes, The Dialtones don't seem to have the urge to play at 100mph on every song, something many similar bands feel compelled to do and as a result you are able to actually enjoy the songs, my favourites being Switchblade Stomp, Back In The City Tonite and Take Me Back. Hopefully for future releases The Dialtones will continue to concentrate on writing memorable songs.
