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.
Fundamental to the genre that is full of otherwise intolerable music.
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.
My favourite album. So many great tracks and good variety of styles. Train In Vain is the greatest song ever.
I bought this album in february 2016 due to the position on the overall chart and the good reviews
I already knew the title track, and found when i listened to it i recognised some of the others
So after Just one listen im liking it a lot -very good
Its very long so it may take along time to get into it all - but first impressions is all positive
Will rate after a few more listens
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Song for song this might be the best album of all time.
