Joe Strummer wouldn't have liked reviews of his posthumous album to be clouded by sentimentality, but it isn't needed. From the rousing opener Coma Girl, this is his best work since the Clash's London Calling. Arms Aloft finds the late singer uncharacteristically reminiscing about those days, but otherwise, this album finds him veering between the extremes of popular music occupied by the Strokes and what Strummer calls "the indestructible beat of Soweto".
