don't buy this cd. Youll do better off if you go out and buy "The Clash" and "London Calling",once those sink in get everything else.I'm not saying that to be mean, its just that if you get this youll get those too!
There isnt much more to say, the Clash were great, and while some could argue that some of their output was uneven, it just goes to show that they were open-minded. Hell, these guys were the first Rap-Rockers (Rapture by Blondie did have a rap section, but The Magnificent Seven was the first rap-rock song) and no one has been able to do a good rap-rock song again...
White Riot and London Calling are punk 101.
Police and Thieves-great reggae cover
Train In Vain-just a great song
Ghetto Defendent-great song from a much maligned album

After listening to the Essential Clash I came away with the belief that a lot of what they sang is redundant, boring and not worth a second hearing. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Philip D. Tasho

You don't consider The Clash to be punk? They were right there with The Sex Pistols, and honestly had a lot more intelligent songwriting. The Clash's debut album is a distillation of what punk rock should be.
