Rollingstone gave Essential Clash 5 stars (their highest rating).

Here's the review.

Since The Clash's demise, there have been many compilations of their work; unfortunately, most of them sound like they were sequenced with a dartboard. This two-disc collection, organized roughly chronologically, finally does them justice: The first disc shows the young Clash as the best rock band in the world: passionate, tough and tuneful. If those early punk songs don't have the shock now they once did -- "White Riot" can be found on karaoke machines these days -- they still can straighten your spine. The hint of reggae in "(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais" becomes the story of the second disc, as the group heads in all directions at once: funk, dub, the top of the charts. The coda is "This Is England," the Clash's lost classic: Joe Strummer looks around him, his country and band both in ruins, and spits in the eye of the world.

It's ok, incorporates too much "pink" coloring for me though. Nothing to write home about.

Does anyone have the Clash on Broadway set? I don't really have the cash to cough up for a box but it looks terribly exciting, with all the extras and stuff.

i've got the clash on broadway box set. it's really cool. terribly expensive though...but if you don't have all the albums it's worth it. it's worth it if you do have all the albums, come to think of it...

the booklet alone is awesome. i don't really want to go on about how great it is, it'll only make you want to shell out the money for it...i hate that feeling...

Yeah, it rocks. I found it used a couple of years ago, but would've paid full price for it anyway for the liner notes alone.
