From Kurtco
London Calling is, I think, one of the 10 most important rock albums in history. This record is alive and still so fantastic today. The sound of "London Calling" is a perfect blend of punk power and pop sweetness. The album opens on the very cult song, "London Calling". In this album there is no waste: all the songs are perfect in melody and the lyrics are exceptional. The album is really the synthesis of Rock'N'Roll: it mixes rockab ', punk songs that call for riot, reggae rock, pop ... Although the Clash is not actually a punk/hardcore band, I consider them as one of the best punk rock bands in history.

10/10

From Aaron98
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"

From Quoman
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.
