While the eclectic London Calling might be the band’s overall strongest release, even it can’t match this album’s immediacy and raw power. Every song here is a classic and define punk better than nothing but the Ramones’ debut album could. The band also deviates from the punk formula a lot here; the US version includes singles Clash City Rockers and Complete Control, which have decidedly multipart structures. Both of those and London’s Burning even feature very much anti-punk guitar solos. Good luck getting ANY of these songs out of your head after you’ve heard them once.
