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.
My Favorite. i Adore every single Genius Moment of this Monumental Album, From the politically Charged Lyrics, the Ska-Punk Fusion, and the Warm Emotion. One of the All time Best.
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.
Never a bad time to put on this LP and play it through.
A divers album but all of the songs have quality written all over them. A great album
The clash... They really surprised me with this album. I never thought that this would be so varied and creative, it englobes everything that is around punk and its friends too, it goes to ska, classic punk, rock, blues. Everything in a album. Beginning with "London Calling" the main song of this album, we start to note that this is not like other clash works, they sing with consistence basically incorporating the characters of this story, and every time that Joe says "London Calling" we know that another mini story of fear, suffer, and war everything focused in a calling of the second war. But no this is not a sad or frightening album, the first song just showed the real truth behind the story that the others told to you. The album continues with this thought moving to other songs.But now song has more variety and not so sadness and despair. "Death or Glory" can let everyone happy and positive for some minutes ( The song is positive while every note try to proves that you can do this so much better), then the album begins to show the truth. "Spanish Bombs"(the best song of the album) always give to me the fake impression that everything is alright, but not for many time. The Drums are different to another punk, they don't dictate the rhythm they let the guitar leads and it just follows the guitar. The lyrics may not be the best of all time but it will certainly make a big hole in your brains of questions and less answers. The album finishes with "Train In Vain" a great ending, with a catchy guitar movement and happy rhythm. this song is the best end for a perturbed and mystical album, that took you to everywhere in that destroyed scene before, and after war. We see great moments happening on our front, music brings this to us, and if music brings this to us, " London Calling" may be the best way to transport it.
This doesn't feel as long as it is. Extraordinary.
What the hell is so fantastic about this album?
Just don't get it.
