    There could be no better box set you could own. Ever. The Clash' discography is a timeless one. They stand out as one of the few enduring punk bands with a voice, message and set of convictions that was unchanging, unrelenting and has proved unstoppable. From their two chord, savage masterpieces, to their jazz and dub infused experimentations of later years, The Clash were non-static and poured great passion into every one of their albums. There is not much new to hear here, but it is all epic. Every track is worth poring over. Expand

    Sound System really is the definitive article, and with Christmas on the horizon, is sure to feature high on several wishlists.
