Not much of a punk album, and more of a rock/ska/reggae album. Either way, The Clash have proven they can be excellent at anything by adding reggae to their repertoire.

Whenever my house is empty and I'm doing homework I blast this album from my PA system and the second the album reaches "Train in Vain" I get out of my chair and dance around my entire house.

So... basically the only bad thing I can say about this album is it makes doing homework very unproductive.

An easy choice for one of the best albums ever. Some may say too mainstream and not punk enough. What it is is a well crafted, well written, well produced slice of rock heaven.

So, I looked up the Rolling Stone 500 greatest albums of all time, and I deserve a band at 8th place that I didn´t knew, it´s name was The Clash, they entered with an album named London Calling, so, after Beatles and Presley and Dylan, this group appears like nothing, it takes my attention and I download it. Today, I still glad for the user where I download this album, it just changed my life, my punk bands where Blink–182 and Green Day, but I deserve something beautiful, incredible, the most powerful way to say the to Rock and Punk ¨I LOVE YOU¨, London Calling is an Anti–War, Happiness, Rebel, Lier, Reality album, is just everything and more, every track is from another world, every world is taken from the best writings ever, every sound is complete. I know that the perfect album doesn´t exist, but I think London Calling is the nearest to be, in some ways, the nearly perfect album of history.

Best song: ALL
Worst song: ANYONE

The amount of content here makes this album so amazing. The style is constantly shifting from punk to ska to rock to reggae and even jazz. The mood of each song fits almost perfectly with Joe Strummers lyrics. For me the lyrics of this album are what keeps me coming back because there are so many different thought provoking themes that are expressed through stories of fictional characters that touch on many different subjects such as drugs, war, being a corporate slave, cheating, sex and losing the woman he loves. Possibly the most fun album to listen to at any moment.
