E=MC2=absolutely amazing!
Drogyn | Illinois | 06/16/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is almost exactly what I look for in a sampling-based album - strong vocal, strong song structure, and catchy beats. "This is Big Audio Dynamite" definetely delivers in all aspects - unimaginably catchy, intoxicating beats that really get into your soul.

"E=MC2" is now one of my favorite 80s tracks - brilliantly put together with a strong vocal and amazing beat.

Why did it take me so long to find such an amazing-sounding album? I thank the wonderful "Listmania" creators on for this amazing discovery.

Besides "E=MC2", the best tracks are "Sony" and "The Bottom Line." Download or buy ASAP!!"
Their first and their best

"Mick Jones and Co. never broke that sophmore jinx--they could never top what they did here, on THIS IS BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE. Employing big sounds and borrowing from their favorite big American icons (especially Clint!), this album showed who was behind the big club tunes of the Clash, like "Rock the Casbah". There is a certain playfulness to Mick Jones' style that fits in with this sound. And of course, timing is everything. Big Audio Dynamite emerged during the big eighties--just like Peter Gabriel's "Big Time", Big Country's "Big Country", all the Talking Heads'/David Byrne "Big" tunes and the Tom Hanks' movie named... you guessed it"
The first of several great records

"BAD went on after this witty, original, melodic, rhythmic release to produce at least two other superb works: Megatop Phoenix and The Globe. Mick Jones is a really creative fellow, with some of Frank Zappa's humor and ability to write a great tune. Wanted to point out - since many reviews refer to the Good/Bad/Ugly sampling - that the dialogue in E=MC2 (you're Jack the Lad...give them a bit of stick) comes from the Nicholas Roeg film Performance, with James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg, set in 60s London. Jones evokes the Swinging London era quite often; there's a hilarious sequence on The Globe where Cathy MacGowan, or someone like that, is rambling on about dolly birds and with-it clubs."
