The Clash - Into the 80's mp3 download

Overall a great album with a few not so as great songs.

The Clash is the debut studio album by English punk rock band the Clash. It was released on 8 April 1977 through CBS Records. Written and recorded over three weeks in February of 1977 for a paltry £4,000, it would go one to reach on the UK charts, and has been included on many retrospective rankings as one of the greatest punk albums of all time

Album covers, in general, are meant to be a visual accompaniment to the music contained within. In a way, these strong visual statements serve as the perfect manifestation of the electro-pop bombast of the decade.

On their fourth album, the Clash combined their passion for global politics with an embrace of world music, most notably Jamaican dub and reggae. It’s one thing to bemoan the plight of the impoverished on a track; it’s another to do that over a dub reinvention of the same track, as they did with One More Time and One More Dub. The Clash, of course, did not abandon their guitar origins, turning Sandinista! into an experimental, triple-album behemoth that melded punk’s urgency with reggae’s bent toward social justice

Top '80s Songs of The Clash - Volume 1. Essential Tracks for General Audiences. A '70s classic from only the most technical of perspectives (released, along with the double album of the same name, in December 1979), this stellar lead-off track kicked off an explosive early-'80s run for The Clash. Almost a perfectly balanced blend of punk rock power and reggae -inflected guitar rhythms, the song's iconic opening and repeated central riff serves as fine reinforcement for Joe Strummer's urgently poetic lyrical wake-up call for a society and culture he felt was dangerously stuck in perpetual slumber.

The '80s was hip-hop's first real decade, the era when everything started to blow up. There's an old saying that no idea's original: "There's nothing new under the sun. It's never what you do, but how it's done. Early on, it wasn't an album genre; hip-hop was all about parties and park jams, preserved and propagated via bootleg cassette. The art of the hip-hop album was perfected by the close of this remarkable decade. All these years later some discs sound dated while others feel fresher than ever. These are our picks for the Best Rap Albums of the 80s.

The biggest vote-getter in the ’80s turned up in mid June of 1986, a powerhouse of an album by a couple of kids known by some as Morrissey and Marr. Following close behind in the overall totals were albums by the Pixies and Joy Division. 8. The Clash - Sandinista (Epic). Sure, making a breakout, landmark, iconic, legendary, and universally praised album is a great thrill but the tricky part comes with following it up. Case in point would have to be the Clash’s 1979 groundbreaking London Calling. Taken as a whole piece from its relentlessly paced beginnings to its eventual slowing into a defeated crawl, Remain in Light depicts a a series of narrators trying to come to grips with various existential crises and the onset of middle age. These narrators are navigating through their problems in a world that has become overloaded with useless information.

But in many ways, The Clash’s eclectic 19-song effort marks the end of punk’s golden years, infusing a brash mix of rock, ska, R&B and reggae throughout its 65-minute run time. It’s a double-record that not only spans a broad array of styles, but ratchets up the political intensity with songs like Guns of Brixton and Spanish Bombs, demanding listeners to heed its anti-establishment calls, even as it became a commercial success. But the devastating melancholia quickly morphs into the sardonic lyrical meglomania that made vocalist Morrissey the legendary apathetic mope in Frankly Mr. Shankly, a terse and not-so-veiled reference to The Smiths’ growing distaste for the music industry in general. 1. The Pixies – Doolittle (1989) At the tail end of the ’80s, an album came out that would continue to influence rock for a couple more decades and counting.

Far far the best album of the 80s in fact the best album of all time. I'm a primary metalhead, but Thriller was THE first and only song and album that caught my attention; opening the world of music into my little world and setting the foundation on my perception of great music. So if it weren't for Micheal Jackson, I wouldn't be a Pantera fan. - MinistryMonster. This is my all time fave album.
