I usually find double albums somewhat hard to get through cause of the length. Although looking at the length I guess it's not that long, but this album feels so quick cause of how good most of the songs are. It feels like "The Clash" hit perfection the entire way through, and even though I feel like nothing else they did even came close, their albums are usually great. "London Calling", "Rudie Can't Fail", Spanish Bombs", The Guns of Brixton", "Lost in the Supermarket", "Death or Glory", "Train in Vain", ohhh my gosh there's too many good songs to name off. And it's all so concise and just screams 'classic'. This is among, if not my favorite post-punk/punk rock album I've ever listened to.

A punk with hardly any punk at all. So many musical styles in this and the Clash nail them all. I think it'd be fair to say that if the Beatles were the first great band to really change things, the Clash would be second to follow.

Such a fun album, with so many catchy tunes. It just brightens up your day. One of the few albums I enjoy listening to on shuffle.

Once or twice in a decade there is relesead that album wich shots at every direction, in a attempt at doing something new. In the 60s we have Beatles's "Abbey Road". In the 80s we have "Remain in Light" by Talking Head and the self-titled Stone Roses album per example. In the 70s we have "London Calling", an album that revitalized every aspect of Rock music, and maybe even music in general. That is a "Revolution Rock"

I can see the why this album did have a huge impact at the time of its release but I think it is a little bit inconsistent and to many musical styles at the same time. I think it would be more listenable if it was shortened to a single album. There is some really great songs though.

From micah88800 06/19/2018 21:42
Absolutely epic record. This album is full of political commentary and catchy songs. Listened to this almost every day my freshman year of college, so I have a lot of nostalgia attached to it. There is 19 songs and they are all good! Every one of them! That is a feat not usually seen in music and makes this alum truly exceptional

Perhaps a bit long-winded and overrated, but still a great album.

The boys mellow (just a little). Lots of songs, not every one a classic, but consistent enough to hold attention - and the odd gem.


We miss you Joe!!
