#400: Sandinista! by The Clash

5.03.2011


Sandinista! by The Clash (1980)

Favorite Track(s): "The Magnificent Seven" and "Hitsville U.K." and "Something About England" and "Somebody Got Murdered" and "Up in Heaven (Not Only Here)" and "Police On My Back" and "Lose This Skin"

Thoughts: (Pre-Listening) This album has 36 tracks. UGH. I'm so close, Big Star. We're so close to being together again...

(Post-Listening) No two songs were alike, one minute the tracks would be upbeat pop, then punk, then funk, then reggae. I have to say, this made a real Clash fan out of me. I didn't realize they could be so diverse...

It's definitely long and maybe some of the tracks could have been cut, but there are so many gems I'm quite pleased I listened to it. And I recommend it!
