Description: Amazon.com essential recording Bursting at the seams with creative energy, the Clash's stunning 1979 double album more than made up for the artistic and commercial disappointment of its predecessor, 1978's tried-too-hard Give 'Em Enough Rope.

"Kummallinen sekoitus punkkia ja rockia. En ole koskaan ollut mikään Clash fani, mutta ne tietyt biisit ovat kolahtaneet ihan hyvin. Mielestäni tämä ei kuitenkaan ole tarpeeksi punk ollakseen punk-levy. Sex Pistols henkeen ja vereen!"
