3.0 out of 5 stars The begining of the end, June 13, 2000
This review is from: Megatop Phoenix (Audio CD)
I was too young to appreciate the Clash when they were at their peak, but I got into B.A.D in a big way (went to all their concerts, bought their t-shirts etc.) Looking back, however, I think it was this album that marked the point when I first began to doubt the fact that they could do no wrong. I remember rushing out to Malcolm's Musicland in Chorley to get it on the first day it came out and being quite disapointed when I first played it. Although it did grow on me after a while (when your a fan you have a tendency almost to force yourself to like something)I never rated it as highly as their previous 3 albums.
I've always thought it represented an album of missed opportunity. Tracks like Dragontown and Contact should have been real killers but seem to have something missing. Whether Mick Jones's illness was an influence or if it was due to the fact that the band were running out of ideas, I don't know. The latter may reflect the most likely reason as this was the last album featuring the original line-up.
Still, there are a lot worse albums out there and listening to it it does bring back a lot of memories. For me, however, their best album was Tighten Up Vol'88 which unfortunately seems to be the only one not available.
