The Clash  Cut the Crap

Compact Disc CD: 7464 66419 2 Compact Disc

  Over the past couple of years there seems to be a renewed interest in the music of the better bands of the 60s and 70s. Probably due to the lack of good music being produced in our present day. I hear The Clash regularly on the local radio stations along with the Sex Pistols, Ramones and other great bands like Pink Floyd or Cream. For those of you who don't know of the Clash, or are only starting to be introduced to their amazing music, I feel the need to warn you about Cut the Crap. To be blunt, Cut the Crap is a load of crap. I don't even know why they even bothered to make the album. The band had already broken up a couple of years before, and this was no comeback. Most of the songs are a combo of bad disco and pop rock. Little to nothing of their punk roots shine though. The way I see it, it was a poor attempt to have a couple of singles in the mid 80s electric scene. A couple of the twelve songs are less obnoxious than the rest, but it's not worth buying the disc for those few. The album was a total disappointment as all of their other albums I have owned before it have merit. Combat Rock was a little weaker than their other installments, but it still had some great songs. Cut the Crap has none. The sad comparison is when you hear some of their best music on their 1979 LP London Calling like "Brand New Cadillac", "Clampdown", "Death or Glory" or any other song on the disc. Nothing on Cut the Crap even comes close to the coolness of their earlier songs. Save your money and go buy London Calling or their self-titled disc.
