Been reading Joe Strummer's biography and it's very good.

So I've been listening to a lot of Clash records and I thought I'd do yet another best album poll.

London Calling is one of the greatest albums of all time!

NeverMind The Sex Pistols, Here's The Clash!

The Clash get on my nerves. As do the sex pistols.

I think its that accent.

More and more I like Give em enough rope. London Calling is great, but it's a very obvious and lazy choice, so I went with the less popular pick.

Lazy pick? I've done my research! I'm not gonna pick a different album just becasue I know everyone else is gonna pick London Calling. n00b.

I've been told my musical preferences are lazy and obvious so I'm trying to expand.

Your pick is not lazy if you don't think it is.

I actually like GEER quite a bit. People bash this one, mostly for the production, but I never got that. Maybe it's just because it's the first Clash I ever bought (got it when it came out), but to me it rocks pretty hard and the writing is on target.

^ Yeah, I can't believe I don't have that in my collection yet! It's a good one. Black Market Clash is okay, too.

Actually, there's not much I don't like by the Clash. I even like Combat Rock.

It's between London Calling and Sandanista for me. Whilst the former has a great first half (especially the awesome Guns of Brixton), I have to say that I've never enjoyed the second half anywhere near as much.

Sandanista, on the other hand, combines a genuinely impresssive scope with what is for me a better standard overall.

Me too. It was always my least favourite Clash LP, but in recent years I've liked it more and more.

This record blew me away when I bought it in 1980. It got absolutely blasted by the music press at the time, but was like nothing I'd ever heard before. So it probably gets my vote as well.

London Calling...pure brilliance! Definitely one of the greatest rock albums ever and the best thing the Clash ever did. Although their self titled is a close second. And I like Give 'em Enough Rope but it really has that 'debut album leftovers' vibe.

I know a lot of people will hate me for saying this, but while I like Sandinista, I think it would have been much better if they cut it down to a single disc (or double LP instead of the triple). The album as it is is way too long and has tons of throw-away tracks in the midst of some pretty brilliant ones. Anyways, after Sandinista, they pretty much went downhill.

I voted for the debut. Great album. Although, it is the only Clash album I own, so I am a little biased. I saw Give 'Em Enough Rope on vinyl secondhand this year sometime, went back to buy it another day and it was gone

I Fought the Law is a classic. One of the best songs ever Written. It's one of them songs that I loved when I was a little kid, but didn't know who it was or even cared who it was, until I was older and then went "Ahh, so that's the Clash".

London Calling, The White Album and Daydream Nation to me are all in a special class of album. I'm still waiting for the 4th.

Like the Black Flag poll, I realized there isn't an entire album I like as a whole from either band. London Calling has a large amount of songs I really like over all the other ones though.
