I don't usually pick favorites, whether books, movies, TV shows, theater, artworks, etc. But I think I can say this album is my favorite album. Not perfect, but I have never seen (heard) perfection. This is pretty close. Every song is a keeper. And the fact it is a double album seals the deal. The Clash were moving away from the straitjacket of 70s punk and were now dabbling in rockabilly, punk, ska, etc. This album blends it all in. They could play a furious song and still craft an insanely catchy melody. This album will bring you out of any funk you are in. The slogan for the Clash was "The only band that matters". And for the two year period surrounding this album - it was true.
