The Clash: Give 'em Enough Rope (CBS 82431)

Robin Banks, ZigZag, December 1978

A TRIUMPHANT roar of battles won. This album is a paean to victory than demands instant recognition and then leaves one gasping for breath, exhausted but exhilarated. It certainly must be placed among only a handful of rock albums that merit the term "Classic", and that accolade ain't dished out lightly.
