The Clash Give Em Enough Rope'
Give 'Em Enough Rope
Newly Remastered By The Clash From Original Tapes To Audiophile Quality
All Artwork Recreated From Original Release Including Replicated Fully Printed Inner Sleeves.
Listening to The Clash's sophomore release, Give 'Em Enough Rope, 23 years after its debut is a rare moment where sound and emotional intensity hold over time. This album is as relevant as ever, given the transition and volatility of modern times.
Bolstered by some of the best rock 'n' roll riffs, melodies and lyrical observations, it's a joy to throw this old friend on the turntable, sit back, and listen to its familiar and poignant sounds.
What sets The Clash apart from other punk bands is their attention to musicianship and the honest articulation of their frustration and unrest. From the heralding anthem Safe European Home, to the finale All The Young Punks, the record balances the viperous and angst-y zeitgeist of the late 1970s with catchy tunes and toe-tapping rock.
The LP was rated 1978' Album of the Year by Rolling Stone and Time magazines. It has proven itself over time to be one of the greatest records by any band.1. Safe European Home

StreetcoreOne of the few true heroes of the punk era, former Clash frontman Joe Strummer walked it like he talked it, never losing his commitment to either his music or his ideals. Streetcore marks his third album since his '99 re-emergence, and possibly his strongest solo album to date.
This fact is all the more poignant in light of Strummer's death shortly before Streetcore's completion. He has left us a swansong of which he could be proud. His famous eclecticism is full-on; this makes the wide-ranging SANDINISTA seem like GIVE 'EM ENOUGH ROPE by comparison. A dizzying fusion of electronica, reggae, funk, hip-hop, rock, folk, blues, world music, and more, it's what he'd been working his way up to ever since his comeback. Things never spiral out of control, as his lyrics are the most focused he'd written since his Clash days--simultaneously political and playful. Streetcore closes with a cover of Bobby Charles's Grow Too Old (retitled Silver and Gold), a vow to live life to its fullest that would seem tragic in context had not its singer done exactly that all the way to the end.1.
