MY COMMENTS:

Cretin Family started to play a year ago (fall 2000) and guys are now 19-20 years old. Like you can expect, they're strongly influenced by Ramones, but also by Ne Luumaet, like many many other finnish "Ramones-bands". It feels that these songs are so holy to Cretin Family, that they didn't wanted to do big changes for them. But I think, that many times it's more good to give more own points of views and do some tricks to songs, even they're holy, like Ramones-songs for us everyone.

The most changes is on Love Kills and specially in attitude. Cretin Family has got good, angry and pretty unkind attitude for it. So, they also choosed 3 other classic from 80's. All of them Cretin Family plays pretty well and specially power chords at I Believe In Miracles.

Blitzkrieg Bop comes without any new specialities. Of the I Wanna Be Sedated they recorded pretty lazy and lifeless version. This demo is OK, when thinks that this release is first by Cretin Family. But why they didn't covered Cretin Family -song?
