The Libertines, for those who don't know yet, make music, art, poetry, love, war, and airfix models. Primarily, though, they're known for their music -- which is brilliant. They're a beautiful and wildly compressed version of all the great British groups of all time: The Clash, The Jam, The Smiths, The Yardbirds, The Kinks, The Small Faces, and Chas & Dave. And you'll find all this insane talent on "The Libertines," a totally wired, off-its-face magical record. As The Clash's Mick Jones said, "A record as good as this only comes along once in a generation. Yeah, you had it with The Clash. And now it's The Libertines' turn."
