Product Description


Ska music has been deeply ingrained in the punk rock culture since the Clash adopted their rude boy stance near the end of the British punk invasion and the 2-Tone label put ska on the map. Suddenly, punks stopped kicking the crap out of each other long enough to dance. The debut release by Orange County, California's Sublime is a positively infectious record that marries varied styles of dub, reggae, rap, sampling, scratching, and badass dancehall ska with old-school punk overtones. Musicianship on this record is exceptionally tight, featuring Brad Nowell's innovative guitar work and bright, soulful voice. Packed with 40 oz. of rock (21 tracks) including the ultimate pot-smoking anthem "Smoke Two Joints" and the novelty hit "Date Rape." --Gail Worley

Great album, recommend marijuana usage to bring out the flavor. Fry your brain and allow the music to soak in. Then just dig in!

5.0 out of 5 stars hot damn July 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
You already know I'm rocking this and copping this album, why the hell wouldn't I? Think about it friend, this is a great album that just solidly encapsulates the whole mood and sound of Sublime. Sublime is a great band it really has a sort of sound that just touches on everything, but has such a solid consistancy that you would be damned to say that these guys suffer an identity crisis. Unlike many of the numerous (NUMEROUS) bands to bite sublimes style (Authority Zero I point my finger squarely at you!) there is a solid consistancy that comes from Sublime. I wish death on bands that bite their style, no there will never EVER be another band like Sublime so imatators... please stop! Anyways I'm feeling like talking about every song on this album... aight 1 2 3 here I go!
Waiting For My Ruca- what a great song! I just love the dum dum sort of beat on this. It is slow and it is dreamy, a quality song indeed.
40 Oz. To Freedom- mmmmmm good. The begining just kicks and you get into the hook as soon as you hear. Then comes the bangin' chorus with the charged guitar, oh it makes my body sweat.
Smoke Two Joints- is the worst song Sublime ever sang. I hate this song I think it is so annoying, I don't even have the faintest idea why all you pot heads think it's such a great song. Way too gimmicky.
We Are Only Going to Die For Our Own Ignorance- this song rocks em real tight boy. I likes it, it just has a punkish feeling to yet it stays with that sort of ska riff that... oh it just sounds good. This was when Bad Religion didn't suck.
Don't Push- a great reggae soundin' song. I like it much you can just chill back and rock ya head back and fourth, maybe even do something that involves ummmm well you know what I'm talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars and there he wept when he remembered Zion... June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ever wanted to know where 311 got most of their inspiration in their revolutionary sound, then look no further then Sublime. Sublime is the epitomy of the music movement apptly titled "ska," in which they combined their many influences which included reggae, hip hop, rock, and good old punk and dancehall fused together to form what we all know as ska. But Sublime really can't be holed into a catagory like ska because they really were just too original to be of a small part of a whole. They were the voice of the LBC and the voice of everyone that loves to party and have a good time. They had a couragous singer in Bradley Knowell, with his smooth and haunting voice, and guitar skills to boot there was no way of doubting this bands sucess and well, some saw the untimely end come sooner then we all expected (RIP).
40 oz's is by far their masterpiece, and if you're new to the ska scene, it would be a shame for you not to buy this album first and foremost before any others. Every song is a definate listen and though it takes time for some people to hook onto them, it will be definately worth the time and effort to listen to this whole cd. Even the shoutout track at the end is great! This album is the soul of Bradley and it shows the struggles he dealt with, and the heart and soul he poured into getting his band off the ground and into history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit that sold me! June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd was the one that "sold me" on sublime. I originally owned it in a cassette tape, then upgraded to a cd. It has 22 tracks, definitely giving you your money's worth. It makes good transitions between the reggae-ish, and ska-punk-ish songs. From the beginning to the end, you can sing along with all the songs. Brad's thank you's are done like a song at the end and it is graet.
THis a great cd for anything. Your car, parties, the beach, it provides a summery-party feel. You don't have to be a sublime fan to love this cd. It is a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best CDs of all time June 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
All the sublime CDs are really good but 40oz. is the best of all of them and probably my favorite CD of all time. I've bought it 4 times in my life already because it gets scratched and worn out.

5.0 out of 5 stars f'in sweet June 11 2004
By RyDog
Format:Audio CD
If you're a sublime fan and you don't have this album your not a sublime fan. This is by far the best record they put out in the short time they were a band. Everything about the album is so great, especially brad's vocals and lyrics. This is probably my favorite CD I own and the one I play the most. Sublime is such a great band because their so unique and you can't mix up their sound with any other band. If you don't think this is a good CD then you gotta go listen to some better music. Go buy this CD right now you won't be disapointed
