💣Sloth's 70s PUNK COMP🧻

Hello Sput-Isolaters, GAME TIME!!!!!!! Rec me 70s PUNK. Winner gets to name my "Real name" the one that comes up when I rate an album. Rules Below...
1The Clash
London Calling


1) Each user is allowed to recommend a maximum of 3 albums.
2Ramones
Rocket to Russia


2) The album had to be released in the decade of the 70s, before 1/1/1980.
3Sex Pistols
Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols


3) Albums by the first 5 bands listed here are excluded, namely; The Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Germs, and The Saints. The idea is for me to hear some new, old stuff.
4Germs
(GI)


4) Each album will be rated out of 10, according to my personal taste.
5The Saints
(I'm) Stranded


5) Any album with less than (edited) 25 ratings on Sputnik, will receive a bonus 0.5.
6The Clash
The Clash (US version)


6) The winner gets to name the sloth, and I will keep whatever they decide, for 1 year, no matter how ludicrous or terrible it is. The name can not be racist, sexist, or derogatory to any groups, other than that, you can call me what you want.

Sloth's rating: 9.5 This is classic British Punk. A great variety of tracks, from garage, punk, art punk, minimalist post-punk sounding tracks. This album is superior to The Sex Pistols, like a New England IPA, is superior to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Although PBR is more popular, it lacks the complexity of a NEIPA, a bit like this album shits all over Never Mind The Bollocks....
Fav Tracks: Reuters, Surgeon's Girl, Field Day for Sundays.

Sloth's Rating: 9.5, another classic, ranging from art punk, classical experimental jazz, to punk rock. This album shaped the way for a rock'n'roll going forward. Patti's dynamic vocals, beatnik poetry, over 3 chords, experimental instrumentation and catchy riffs, encourage repeated listens of Horses.
Fav Tracks: Gloria, Birdland, Break It Up

Sloth's Rating: 8. Vocals are punky and excellent, musically it is experimental, funky/jazzy dance punk. It is punk in spirit, not giving a fuck, this is unique, and a hard listen at times, but when it clicks, it hits hard.
Fav Tracks: Contort Yourself, Design To Kill. Throw Me Away

Sloth's Rating: 8. A great garage-rock/punk album. i feel like this was an excellent debut, but they had a lot more to learn and display on future records. This album sounds a like a young band having fun and playing generic punk, where with later albums, they will come into their own and add the more goth feels.
Fav tracks: Stab Your Back, New Rose.

Sloth's Rating: 9.5/10 This is some crisp post-punk, with a splash of art-punk. There are rock, jazz, and experimental elements within the songs, adding excitement and allowing for repetitive listens. So many little riffs, catchy hooks, and unforgettable moments within the album. It is easy to see why Marquee Moon influenced so many new wave, post rock and alternate rock bands for the past 4 decades. Outstanding album.

Sloth's Rating: 7. A great album, that no doubt influenced a lot of post-punk and post-punk revival. I never really clicked with this, and it is probably the album on this list I have heard the most. I just get fatigued, and bored, there is a lot happening on the album, vocal styles is constantly changing, but musically it is a to slow.

Sloth's Rating: 8/10. After a few listens, this album still confuses the fuck out of me. It's minimalist synth punk, or no wave, which I am not to familiar with. It's atmospheric buzzing, and Alan Vega's vocals are captivating and demanding a closer listen. For 1977, this album feels ahead of it's time, a lot of the instrumentation could be used as background for a The Weeknd song, or an 80s Atari console game. And then there is Frankie Teardrop, which sounds just like Get Schwifty from Rick and Morty, until....... just listen and you will see. Mike Patton would be proud.
Fav Tracks; Cheree, Frankie Teardrop

Sloth's Rating: 9.5. Fuck, this is an instant classic, why did they wait so long to release it? I hope it has nothing to do with racism. It's got elements of prog rock, funk, garage rock, and some great catchy punk vibes. Love this album so much! Drumming is outstanding and guitar work is excellent. Politicians in my Eyes needs to be heard by everyone.

Sloth's Rating: 9.5 I own this on vinyl. This is a classic. So raw, but still catchy af, it's early hardcore but could pass off as badly produced pop-punk with angst turned up to 11. Snotty, bratty, no fucks given punk.

Sloth's Rating: 8. Early Pop Punk, catchy punk tunes mixed with experimental longer free jams. I prefer the second half of the album, where the experimentation really comes to the front, instrumentally the second half is a lot of fun and it feels like the band were unshackled from the pop punk on the first half.
Fav Tracks; Paradise, Hollow Inside,

Sloth's Rating: 9. This is so good, it's somewhere in the middle-grounds of punk and new wave, but holds it's own identity. It has some experimental elements throughout that keep you on you toes. Shot by Both Sides, si one of my all time favourite punk songs.

Sloth's Rating: 8. I spent a bit of time with this album last year, and I enjoyed it a lot. A mix of Post Punk and Art Punk, although musically it is simplistic, and obvious they are not masters of their instruments, they are willing to put that aside and just have fun, exploring what can be done, and creating some catchy and experimental tunes in the process. Their version of Lola, is great.
