Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 102/500!

180g Vinyl LP! UK Version!
Newly Remastered By The Clash From Original Tapes To Audiophile Quality Vinyl!

The Clash is the eponymous debut studio album by English punk rock band The Clash. It was released on 8 April 1977, through CBS Records.

The album received critical acclaim and peaked at number 12 in the UK charts. In December 1979, critic Robert Christgau named it his favorite album of the 1970s. In his decade-end list for The Village Voice, Christgau ranked the UK version as the best album of the 1970s. In February 1993, the New Musical Express magazine ranked the album number 13 in its list of the Greatest Albums of All Time. NME also ranked The Clash number 3 in its list of the Greatest Albums of the '70s, and wrote in the review that "the speed-freaked brain of punk set to the tinniest, most frantic guitars ever trapped on vinyl. Lives were changed beyond recognition by it."

In December 1999, Q magazine rated the album 5 stars out of 5, and wrote that The Clash "would never sound so punk as they did on 1977's self-titled debut....Lyrically still howled with anger." The same magazine placed The Clash at number forty-eight in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever in 2000, and included The Clash in its "100 Best Punk Albums", giving it 5 stars out of 5, in May 2002.

In 2000, Alternative Press rated the album 5 out of 5. Alternative press review saw The Clash as an eternal punk album, a blueprint for the pantomime of "punkier" rock acts, and that for all of its forced politics and angst, The Clash continues to sound crucial.

In May 2001, Spin magazine ranked the album number 3 in its list of the 50 Most Essential Punk Records, and wrote "Punk as alienated rage, as anticorporate blather, as joyous racial confusion, as evangelic outreach and white knuckles and haywire impulses."

In March 2003, Mojo magazine ranked The Clash number 2 in its Top 50 Punk Albums, writing that the album was "the ultimate punk protest album. Searingly evocative of dreary late '70s Britain, but still timelessly inspiring."
