London Calling


Recommended Posts

Most folks allow as how London Calling was the Clash's peak album, they had good stuff before and after, but that album marked their creative peak. Listening right now to Rancid's Out Come The Wolves, as Junkie Man kicks in, it is eminently clear to me that this is without a doubt their London Calling. Sure, later albums had their moments, but nothing has had the overall coherence that denotes "greatness." For example, some might argue that the Beatles had their London Calling moment with Sgt. Peppers, but I'm curious to know what others thing constitute the peak of various other bands.
