With Animal Boy, producer Jean Beauvoir of Plasmatics infamy attempted to update the Ramones' sound with the commercial conventions of the day, meaning keyboards and synthesizers. The balls-out title song momentarily simplifies things, but the album nevertheless progresses in hit-and-miss fashion. Of note, the album contains one of the band's most clearly political statements in first single "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg," written about President Ronald Reagan's ill-advised visit to Germany's Bitburg cemetery, the site of many Nazi graves.

    The Ramones Rule!

    One of my favorites! Richie wrote the awesome opening number "Somebody Put Something In My Drink". The synths sound very good in the ballad "She Belongs To Me" and "Mental Hell" is one of the best! Dee Dee sings on the hard core number "Eat That Rat" and the tribute to Sid & Nancy "Love Kills". A flawless album!
