Absolutely mazing album. I know many people that complain this album is too long, and has too much filler, but that just is not true. Amazing album from start to finish.
The ability to mix classic rock, punk, new wave, and jazz is unbelievable.
Best tracks: London Calling, Hateful, Spanish Bombs, Lost in the Supermarket, Guns of Brixton, The Card Cheat, I'm Not Down, Train in Vain
I love how diverse this album is
Buen album, pero solo eso
Favoritas: London Calling, Train In Vain, Lost In The Supermarket, The Card Cheat
This is the pure punk experience, one that doesn't rely on specific techniques to actually cause mayhem. It's a bunch of smart guys politically exhausted and decide "hey, let's satirize all of this bullshit!" and make every song intelligent, tongue-in-cheek and bitingly vitriolic at the same time. See Lost in the Supermarket, which is a gigantic satire in itself, and Train in Vain, a cheery poppy song that is perhaps the most depressing mainstream song I've ever heard, as proof.
Key Cuts: London Calling, Lost in the Supermarket, Train in Vain
The older I get the more I like this album. It's wildly inconsistent, but thoroughly entertaining. Although there are some weaker tracks (never liked Brand New Cadillac) the amount of personality and the fantastic production mixed with genuinely amazing songs (Guns of Brixton, Spanish Bombs, Train in Vain etc) helps elevate this album to ridiculous quality.
The Clash's finest statement, in my opinion.
I'm sorry, but this is not a masterpiece. Here, a punk band goes unpunk by trying to be a bit of everything. None of the genre/styles that the Clash attempt on the album are in any way masterful. Instead they are somewhat pedestrian in quality. Sure, as a whole it's a fairly likeable album and I admire their ability to stretch beyond the punk template but I certainly don't find it at all inspiring. I'm also very luke warm on Strummer's vocals. The lyrics, for their time, had punk sensibilities, but other than that I'd take anything by The Ramones above this every time (despite their inflexible style).
I find it a very fairly ok album but why is this considered by many a masterpiece is beyond my comprehension.
There's some variety but don't find it any better than their first record while a little more boring. Could have been a lot better if it was not a double album IMO.
It never gets any better than this. London Calling was the death and rebirth of punk rock. The album's myriad of different genres provide musical depth and summarize all that had happened in Western music leading up to the album's creation. It reminds us of our past so that we can move on to our future. Very few albums feel so purposeful, especially double albums. Never mind the Sex Pistols, here's The motherfucking Clash!
