This was my exact response too.

I do like all three of the records being discussed, but London Calling is my favorite of the three.

The only song I MIGHT skip sometimes is Lover's Rock but the other 18 are top songs. Their first two records were also fantastic and "Give 'Em Enough Rope" is rediculously under-rated but the variety of genres in LC puts in on another level, not to mention Clampdown and Death or Glory. Any album with those two songs is on my top 5. (I know it's all been said before, sounds very Cliche, and makes me sound like a 12 yr old school-girl but I couldn't keep my mouth shut on probably my favourite album )

My favorite album EVER.


Here comes the rant I always give:
I think we ALL need to remember that music is completely personal opinion. It really makes no sense to say any album is better than any other album, but makes complete sense to say you like one album more than another. Anyways, whatever.

London Calling changed my life in 1979. Maybe you had to be there.

My head has exploded at the thought of anyone not appreciating this album. It, along with "Achtung Baby," are my two favorite albums of all time.

Maybe it's a generational thing......but, like joyfulgirl, I WAS there, and this band, and this album, were very, very important to me.

Listen to "(Working For The) Clampdown" and tell me honestly that you have never felt the way the lyrics describe. I won't believe you. I still feel that way, often.

Open your ears, open your minds, open your hearts and listen, really LISTEN to this album. It is THAT good.

I was thinking about a Clampdown or Death or Glory poll.

Um... no disrespect, but technically a theory isn't a theory until it's proven - until then it's a hypothesis.
