London Calling is the greatgest punk album ever. Never Mind the Bollocks may have been the first great punk album, but no punk album can touch The Clash's masterpiece. Rarely do you come across an album with no weak songs, and even rarer do you find that in a double album, but London Calling is 4 sides worth of great and catchy punk tunes. The best that punk has ever produced.

Fundamental to the genre that is full of otherwise intolerable music.

This album remains one of punk's defining moments, if not its single, signature document. Yet it hardly sounds like a punk rock record. In fact, it's as much a reggae record, as much a dub record, as much a werewolf-rock record, as it is a punk record. Whatever this is, though, it's stood the test of time better than any other punk album ever made. I doubt I really need to sell you on the merits of this sprawling, wonderful album, but in case I do, start with the gorgeous anthem "Train in Vain (Stand by Me)," both homage to the Ben E. King song that preceded it specifically and to pop music in general, especially early Beatles.

A landmark album for punk rock falling just shy of a perfect score.

My favourite album. So many great tracks and good variety of styles. Train In Vain is the greatest song ever.

I bought this album in february 2016 due to the position on the overall chart and the good reviews

I already knew the title track, and found when i listened to it i recognised some of the others

So after Just one listen im liking it a lot -very good

Its very long so it may take along time to get into it all - but first impressions is all positive

Will rate after a few more listens
