Sandanista for me hands down. Tripple album with all good songs and some of the most experimental "punk" music ever made.

There is so much raw fury on that first one. Fuck I fough the Law. The Police and Theives cover took some balls. Janie Jones is a lengendary rock figure. Career Oppertunities? I must have sung that while looking through the help wanted section a billion times. Easily one of the best (and best sounding) bits of agit-prop the era produced.

Listen to the Sandinista version of Career as see how they had become a totally different band. When we're talking about the PUNK band The Clash, there's only the debut. Everything else seems like an experimental stab at everything BUT punk music, with widly variying results. Admit it: you skip a few tracks on London and especially Sandinista. Personally, I skip damn near all of them.

Hardly. I listen to Sandanista from start to finish. I think it's one of the best rock albums ever put to wax.

Mind, I do love the first one, but I'm glad they didn't just do it over and over. They were too good for that. Though I don't like how they ended up of course. Sort of like Bowie, too much cocaine and then you have to do a total pop album to pay for it all, and then everything after that is complete shit.

Okay. Fair enough. People like all of Sandinista. I'll accept that.

But then...what's wrong with Combat Rock? You've got the weird dub stuff, jazzy stuff, funk, etc. It always struck me as a more compact Sandinista.

Interesting question. I'm not sure why those songs don't stick with me the way the ones on Sandanista do. And then there are the highly mediocre and way played to death hits. I think the thing is for me, on Sandanista, much of the experimentation and pop happens at the same time (though I love the full on Revolution #9ish mindfuckery too) while on Combat Rock the pop is completely pulled into the hits. Also, I just feel like it's a lot like Bowie's Lets Dance - a potentially great album consciously dumbed down to mass appeal.

I voted for the first one, out of sheer love for some of the songs: Police And Thieves... Garageland... What's My Name...

E=MC2 is a fucking classic. No '80s compliation should be without it.

You really don't like generalizations, do you? I'm talking about the sort of '80s "school disco" type compilations that seem to take up at least two racks in every High Street record shop. The ones for reminiscing about snogging Mandy from the year above and copping a crafty feel, and wondering where it all went wrong after that.

Nostalgia sells. That's why the friends reunited thing got so successful too.

No. I just like stating the obvious sometimes.
