All of the songs on this cd represent what Joe Strummer and the Clash really mean. I cried when Silver and Gold was palyed to me the first time. It made me realize that Joe was really dead. I might be a 12-year-old, but I love the Clash. I never had a chance to see them live... So I listened to Joe Strummer's new cds. Streetcore is a beautiful cd (but it still rocks!) and I think that every Strummer fan and every Clash fan should buy this cd (probably most already have it!). Coma Girl, Ramshackle Day Parade, and Silver and Gold are my favorites by far. I hope that you will lovew these songs as I have.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am crying as I write this. Joe Strummer was an incredible musician, songwriter, but most importantly he was a beautiful person. I will never forget the first time that I listened to London Calling. That album blew me away, the music grabbed my heart and I have never been the same. Joe Strummer made music that did not fit onto any genre, but rocked the world and gave hope to millions of people. The Clash concerts were power forces of pure, steady rock. This album brings back memories of his Clash days, but here he is calmer, wiser, and kinder. His voice sounds older and more scratchy, but the songs are stunning, beautiful and bittersweet. Hearing it for the first time brought tears to my eyes. Joe's death was untimely and tragic,and I still can't believe that the man who had such an impact on my life had to go so suddenly. That just makes this beautiful, touching album even more of a treasure. The spirit of Joe Strummer and the Clash will never be rivaled by another. God bless them.Was this review helpful?
