Great album from the Greatest band,
This review is from: The Clash [UK Version] (Audio CD)
I think that this ablum proves what punk is. It isnt Green Day or Blink-182. This is real, hard, political punk. The Clash's self-titled debut album, lyrically brings up some important topics for the working class in the 1970's such as drugs, war, violence etc. My personal favourate tracks are White riot, the song inspired by black people rioting and Joe wanting other people to be more like them and make a stand. Other favourates are Janie Jones a great opening track with the drumbeat, Londons Burning, a song about drugs and boredom, Garageland, a song celebrating being in a band. After the 30 years this album has had it is still as relevent and as great to listen to as it was. This is definatly one of the better Clash albums, along with Give em enough Rope. So if your looking for raw political punk, I would definatly recomend this.
