I find it a very fairly ok album but why is this considered by many a masterpiece is beyond my comprehension.
There's some variety but don't find it any better than their first record while a little more boring. Could have been a lot better if it was not a double album IMO.

It never gets any better than this. London Calling was the death and rebirth of punk rock. The album's myriad of different genres provide musical depth and summarize all that had happened in Western music leading up to the album's creation. It reminds us of our past so that we can move on to our future. Very few albums feel so purposeful, especially double albums. Never mind the Sex Pistols, here's The motherfucking Clash!

One of the greatest albums ever made. London calling, is a classic rock'n'roll record incorporating different styles of music into one superb collection of songs. There's rock, reggae, ska, pop, on this magnificent LP. The title track is excellent, as is,guns of Brixton, death or glory, and, wrong 'em boyo. The clash were never really a true punk band, they were way to assured and clever for that, and, London calling, cannot really be called a punk album, no double record set of a dozen different styles and genres by a group of super slick musicians can be really called punk. In the end, it's only rock'n'roll, and brilliant.

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.

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.
