The Forgotten Classic,
This review is from: Give 'Em Enough Rope (Audio CD)
Whilst the Clash's 'best' album followed this one, 'Give 'Em Enough Rope' is my favourite Clash album.
We start off with my all time favourite Clash song 'Safe European Home' which is a song I often hum, alongside another catchy song on this album 'Julie's been working for the drug squad' which is funnily catchy.
This is such an uncommercial album and thats maybe why its forgotten about.
If you are like me, I like short albums, running in at only 10 songs this is the reason I prefer to listen to this that any other Clash albums simply as I find it gets to the point.
Its highly confusing why this is such an underrated album, with the classic 'Tommy Gun' and a hidden gem which is 'All the Young Punks' I can't recommend this enough.
1978 was a great year for post punk bands, 'All Mod Con's by the Jam is a good example.
Try this forgotten Classic.
