In my opinion, the greatest double album of all time. Not a single moment of filler here.

I would have to pick this as my choice for the best album ever, the Clash at their peak with a fantastic fusion of styles but not as self-indulgent as Sandinista.

During the time I first heard London Calling I was getting a little jaded about music. But this album really turned things around for me ; I had never heard anything quite like it. It's just amazing to make an album with 19 songs and damn, there's not a single bad one on it. One of the few albums I can shamelessly give a well-deserved score of 100.

Great album not punk though, maybe pop-punk. Regardless I love it.

This was a favorite of mine in the early years, it is probably their most polished effort, Spanish Bombs, London Calling, Guns of Brixton, Death or Glory all classics. Since then I've developed my taste to post-punk, gothic and shoegaze but the Clash inspired many of those artists. Despite this I find their s/t more fun.

Lots of different sounds, yet still a cohesive work. London Calling is a masterpiece.

Not to much listen on. Might be better, since so many people seems to like it.

This is the greatest punk album ever made. It's a double album with 19 songs. So how in the world did it end up having every single one of them being great? Even when The Beatles made a double album there were some misses. This album is legendary and impossible not to like.

Note that the remastering of this album is amazing, very powerful.
