1) While the title is merely bad, the cover art is downright terrible. Granted, in the age of the compact disc, album cover art is of decreased relevance; and the Clash (with the exception of London Calling's inspired Elvis Presley take-off) were never known for their tasteful cover art. But this is the pits.
2) The concept, while somewhat clever, ultimately doesn't work. The album is a hodge-podge of live tunes from throughout the band's 6-year lifetime, arranged not in order of performance, but based on the age of the song (i.e. moving from the oldest songs to the newest songs). Although that might work for a greatest hits collection, the effect here can be a bit jarring. Though the songs are carefully segued together to give the appearance of a single performance, they can't hide the variations in sound quality. Unlike, say, the Grateful DeaD, who meticulously recorded every performance straight off the soundboard and carefully archived each show, recordings of Clash performances (as bootleg collectors know) are a bit sketchier. So while they have cleaned up the sound quite a bit, there are noticeable changes in sound quality from song to song. Coupled with varying instrument mixes and performance quality, it all gets a bit unsettling if you listen too closely.
3) The song selection is, at best, highly questionable.Read more ›
Many of today's so-called "punk/alternative" bands think that the way to make good music is to play louder, harder, and faster. But they are wrong. And anybody who thinks that these bands are good has obviously never heard the Clash.
The Clash is the greaest punk band, and even the greatest reggae band, of all time. They were one of the most intelligent, politically aware, energetic, and passionae bands in the history of music. And perhaps most imporantly, they were really, really pissed off. This anger helped to give a tremendous depth to their music.
This CD is their first official live release. I have never heard the Clash in conert in person, but this CD sounds exactly like I would imagine one of their concerts would have sounded like. There's an urgency to the music, as if the fate of the world depended on them playing the music with as much energy and passion as they could command. Much of the disc focuses on their earlier songs, when they were more raw and wild. Those early songs were awesome. My only real regret for this CD is that it only has three songs from London Calling, which is certainly their best album. Still, this is one of my two favorite live albums of all time, with my other choice being Velvet Underground's 1969 double live album. If you are a Clash fan, then this new Clash CD deserves to be in your collection.
