Album Review

The Walls Come Down may offer more songs, beating this by six songs, but 20th Century Masters may satisfy the tastes of the group's casual followers somewhat better, since it includes "Let the Day Begin" (Al Gore's 2000 campaign theme, incidentally) along with "The Walls Come Down" and "Surrender," among other Call anthems. Michael Been's songwriting remains admirably strident, but the Call probably remains best heard in concentrated form for anyone other than the converted — so this is the place for most listeners to go.

Customer Reviews

Not Definitive, but Good

This album should be purchased by anyone who wants to explore The Call, but with the understanding that there are 15 songs that are missing from this collection that show a truer picture of one of the 80's most underrated bands. Let the Day Begin and Walls Came Down along with Modern Romans are classics, butit's missing Oklahoma, I Still Believe, Everywhere I Go, Morning, and many many more. So if you listen to this, please go further into THE CALL and don't pass by this great band based on this "MASTER" collection.

Start where they did

Although I applaud anyone for buying this album as either a true Call fan or one learning about the band, I just think you should start where the band did. Modern Romans is a great introduction to the band and Reconciled is one of the finest albums of the 80's and 90's. So any compilation that does not include Everywhere Where I Go and I Still Believe is sadly missing the driving factor of the Call.

Not (#2)

Gotta agree w/ the kit. Fair starter, but the REAL Call in this universe exists on every one of their releases. Peter Gabriel dug 'em, ya know (wow ;0 } ).

Despite great critical acclaim due to their literate, passionate rock, praise from some well-respected contemporaries, and a string of strong releases, the San Francisco band the Call never quite escaped cult status. The predicted breakthrough to a wider audience never materialized. Formed in the San Francisco area in 1980, the quartet, led by vocalist/guitarist Michael Been, released their self-titled debut in 1982 and earned positive reviews. The following year, the band issued Modern Romans and...
