A really strange mix of influences, but it works.

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

Stunning double album. The finest double album ever made, in my view.

This album got me into music. It is a great album. All of the 19 songs are good in their own way. There is no filler.

From kryptos006 11/11/2014 18:40
This album... It sounds a lot like a more punkish version of the first five songs on Exile On Main St. (all EXCELLENT SONGS), only 19 of them. One of the most thoroughly enjoyable albums I have ever heard; from "London Calling" to "Train In Vain," not a single song disappoints. Really one of the most genuinely catchy albums I have heard. Glad I finally listened to this album. I don't give too many albums a perfect score (to be fair, I would actually give it a 98, but I had to round up).
