Format: Audio CD
Anytime you hear anyone talking about the greatest album in rock history with at least a dozen songs that they can't bear to listen to, you should immediately think of the Clash's masterpiece of musical diversity, "Sandinista!". Those who are only familiar with this band through the remarkable "London Calling" or their commercial breakthrough "Combat Rock" will undoubtedly be perplexed by the stupefying array of musical directions taken during this two CD set from 1980.
No matter what you think as a listener, the stylistic mélange has a definite purpose: to show the universality of fundamental human concerns about oppression, violence, poverty, and despair, and also the universality of music itself, as an expression of these concerns. As The Only Band That Matters, the Clash's main strength has always been their songwriting: indignant, sardonic, but always heartfelt in their concern for the downtrodden. Anthems such as "Magnificent Seven", "Up In Heaven", "Police on My Back", and "The Call Up" are equal to anything in the band's oeuvre, and still serve to remind us of the ideals that once made rock music seem relevant. And sure it's tempting to skip over the more off-the-wall selections (some of which foreshadow the coming of so-called "world music" and some of which are just plain annoying), but that's taking the easy way out, and at this point in their career, the Clash just wasn't ready to do that. Perhaps we shouldn't either.
But the simple fact is that most listeners today are less interested in the band's politics than in the music itself, and that's where the album's diversity can be problematic.

Format: Audio CD
this is at least 3, possibly 5, albums rolled into 1, so i'm not sure what the reasoning was behind this package.
it is a difficult mix to listen to, hugely entertaining, but one can get lost in the various themes.
i however have always totally loved it for it's sheer brilliance.
for all his attitude, in joe's voice, you hear warmth, compassion, rage, as well as his trademark cockiness (& cockeneyness!)& (mick's deliberate or not?)comic high-notes & trademark (london boy, love 'im!) banter.
where do i start with the tracks, my faves: hitsville uk - "mutants, creeps & musclemen hyping-up the charts"
"something about england" the lyrics leave you with a chilly feeling that you never forget........
"rebel waltz" is similar, almost ghostly......
"let's go crazy" totally fab, carnival atmosphere, with the cops joining in with their macabre dance.......
i love "version city" in the NYC radio - the "too chilled-out" DJ, "hey! what about some music man?"
"look here" i love that, '30s music man, i'd love to go to china, i'd love to go across the sea.....
"if music could talk" - i love this double conversation tone.
the musical beats here are great too, a nice diversity between rock/reggae beats thrown in with those thrashiing punk guitars, plus any number of little quirks, instrumentally & vocally/lyrically - great fun!
the album is one for puzzle-lovers & is totally whacky, the first challenge is to sort the tracks to form some chronologic of what each is about, but this is fun! and once you get past that, you can appreciate each individually for what it is, & get the gist of the meaning, so, not a light album, it requires a lorra, lorra listenin' - but, hey, enjoy.......

The Clash are one of the great eclectic rock-bands of all time and this disk will show you why. Half the the album is brilliant and the other half is gash but along the way you're treated to rock, reggae, rap, show tunes, country and a bunch of sounds that are exclusive to the Clash.

I used to listen to this album when I was a kid and it was a real trip to rock out to these tunes again (my wife cringing in the passenger seat but my 2 yr old daughter loving it in the back!).

It's a lot of fun, nothing serious and I bet a lot of Clash fans have forgotten about this little jewel as I did!

"saaaaan-danista!"

I heard a live version of the Magnificent Seven and was so captivated that I went out and purchased Sandinista without having actually heard any song on the album. After my first listen I was really disappointed and trouble figuring out what to make of the varied and, well, strange music. Further listens have allowed me to appreciate more and more of the songs and I have come to really enjoy Sandinista!. There still are some really bad songs like Look Here but there are many great ones too. To the open minded this will not dissapoint.

You have to listen to the laments that the Clash wail on this record. The problems of man are addressed here and contemplated to the beat of what was, at the time, an amalgom of styles. What I think many reviewers are missing is that the song is the story is the message is the album. There was a lot to be said and this band took it upon themselves to say it. Read the lyrics and let them sit a while and you will realize that the music is only background.
If the music on a record were the only relevent feature of an artist, you would never hear artists like Woodie Guthrie, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Johnny Cash, and others...
The reason this record is important is that this group of musicians decided that it really didn't matter what style accompanied the message. They were doing what they wanted to do, and that is what the spirit of punk is, in my mind anyway. Not to suggest that George Bush is the ultimate punk, mind you. He's an ass. The Clash loved playing music, and we are fortunate that CBS funded such profound creativity.
Say what you will, but I think Outkast could not have made such a record if the Clash had not gone so far out on a limb so long ago. If you are too impatient to listen to the story, you should not buy this record
