The fall and fall of a documentary...
By Jcee - July 9, 2014
I found this documentary unbearable and boring and turned it off after 30 minutes. From the opening sleep inducing voice of Pearl Harbour , to the bored sounding narrator , to the recycled footage that has been pulled from the MUCH BETTER Clash documents before this.
It didn't pull me in at all and aside from the sparce Mick Jones interview moments, I didnt find any of the interview subjects interesting or hold any credence in their stories.

Here they explore and experiment once again with some new sounds including piano and production that is as bold as it is interesting. "Sirens, My Father's Son,Pendulum and Yellow Moon" along with the fore mentioned single in particular are stand out tracks. There is also here the semi regular occurrence of a the end of album ballad which I always admire. Here, "Future Days"… Read more
