A punk album that everyone can truly find something to enjoy with. It traverses genres like 50s old school rock, pop, ska, and ragae among others. This album is insanely entertaining and is filled to the brim with energy. On top of that, a lot of the songs have strong meanings, like Spanish Bombs or London Calling. This album's energy, free spirit, and variety have allowed it to transcend time and age favorably.
Best Tracks: Train in Vain, Revolution Rock, Clampdown, London Calling

Punk is not at all my thing. This album is nevertheless genius. It's the energy. What fun!

This album continues to grow on me. One of the most well known punk bands provides a sprawling expanse of genres and stylistic approaches, including post-punk, hard rock, reggae, ska, folk, R&B, quasi-jazz and more, this album beautifully executes a number of musical movements and pioneers its own in the process. The lyrics are as sprawling as the sound, and though the album is certainly a long listen, it hold up very well with its vast array of sounds.

Key tracks: London Calling, Spanish Bombs, Train in Vain

I dont think it is the best album of the 70s, but it is definitely up there. There isn't a weak song on the album, really unique sound
