This album is a classic. It fascinates me how this album is a precursor. Beside the Ramones' first album, it represents the basis of punk rock music and every derivatives that come from this unique genre.
Not many albums are able to have so many good tracks. There is not any huge dip in quality. The songs remain interesting and vary in style/genre, but they are all united by their punk influenced lyrics. It is hard to pinpoint which tracks are really standout, because everyone seems to have their own favorites.
The album might take a while to get into because it is so long and you might not understand the lyrics through the thick accents, but I would recommend sticking with it.
The lyrics of social injustice with the perfect beat and rhythm. An abosulte anarchist's dream album. Strummer was a genius with his inciteful view on the government's role in society. London Calling was the perfect album to bring down the man!
What a masterpiece. As long as this album is (over an hour), London Calling barely slows down at all (Revolution Rock is probably the weakest song on the album, but then is followed up with the awesome Train In Vain). It's no wonder that the Clash were billed as "the only band that matters".
The finest offering by The Clash with one of the best opening tracks ever. While certainly a classic album, I've always felt it would be one of the greatest records of all time if it had been a single LP instead of a double. More than one song on the album is easily forgetable, cluttering what could have been one of the top ten albums of all time (in my opinion).
It's a bit overrated, considering that the second half of the album contains some weaker tracks ("Four Horsemen", "Koka Kola", "Card Cheat"), and I guess it would have been perfect with 12-13 songs left. Otherwise, this is a great album, musically varied and frequently exciting.
Track picks: "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Hateful", "Rudie Can't Fail", "The Guns of Brixton".
After multiple listens I just can't understand why this album is so praised. Good, not great.
A punk album with great melodies and a sledgehammer opening. I love this album.
Defintely one of the best double albums ever.
Warm, angry, and thoughtful; confident, melodic, and hard-rocking.
