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.

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).

Not much of a punk album, and more of a rock/ska/reggae album. Either way, The Clash have proven they can be excellent at anything by adding reggae to their repertoire.

Whenever my house is empty and I'm doing homework I blast this album from my PA system and the second the album reaches "Train in Vain" I get out of my chair and dance around my entire house.

So... basically the only bad thing I can say about this album is it makes doing homework very unproductive.

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.
