5.0 out of 5 stars V. Good, 2 Sep 2006
This review is from: London Calling (Audio CD)
This is a truely great and inspiring album. To be truthful there isn't much "punk" as such to be found on this album, this is very much the sound of '79 rather than '77. Obviously the attitude is completely punk, but the album is more of a showcase for Strummer's and Jones' songwriting and skill to adapt to any type of music. There are great reggie, ska and pop songs to be found on this album, showing a variety that many other bands of the era would not be able to acheive. This is a double album of great class, there are no filler tracks, each of the nineteen songs could have been released as singles. The production is of high quality and much easier on the ears compaired to their first album. The obvious standout song is the title track. The relentless guitar and pounding bass create a great basis for Strummer's snarl. This is all in all a good album, and confirms The Clash as one of the great bands.
