Product Description

Product Description


For all his tattoos and bulked-up frat-boy persona, singer Bradley Nowell had real soul, which made his fatal heroin overdose even more tragic. There's more to this Long Beach, California, trio's debut, released shortly after Nowell's death in 1996, than white suburban punks imitating Jamaican ska music. The band come up with great songs, notably the catchy MTV hit "What I Got"; spooky dub-reggae undertones, produced by the Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary, to go with the snappy horns; and surprisingly progressive lyrics that attack sexism and other social ills, especially on "Wrong Way". Like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Fishbone, obvious forebears, Sublime become slightly tiresome after 17 songs, but the band is great in short doses. --Steve Knopper

"Sublime" is one of my favorite albums of all time and it is by far the best Sublime record. Listening to "Sublime" is like the equivelant to watching an episode of Cops. There are songs about prostitutes, pawn shops, weed, race riots, and guns. All good fun!
Some highlights are:
"Garden Grove"- I like when Bradley goes through the list of reasons why his soul is unsound.
"Same in the End"- Totally rocks.
"Seed"- Totally rocks too.
"Burritos"- Should have been another single.

Sublime was a multifaceted band that, before the death of lead singer and guitarist Brad Nowell, utilized many different genres in creating their music and evolved as musicians in the process.
Not unlike many famous painters, Brad Nowell drew his inspiration from a wide palate of choices. Sublime's music delves into many different genres, including surf, dub reggae, punk, hip-hop, funk, heavy metal and, in some cases, jazz. A lot of people may catch themselves humming one of the group's insanely catchy tunes, all without realizing the effortlessness of Nowell's uncanny craftsmanship that went into constructing the song.
It is important for fans of Sublime to understand how privileged they are to hear such music coming from a band that self produced their albums, and recorded much of their music in various living rooms.
In order to get recognized on the underground circuit, a band must have a gimmick to distinguish themselves from other bands. Sublime's gimmick was its diverse inspiration drawn from reggae legend Bob Marley, contemporary composer George Gershwin, and many punk rock bands.
Unlike Marley's dub style, which can be heard on virtually every one of Sublime's tracks, Gershwin's jazz influence is more subtle; except for the track "Doin' Time," which is built solely on a sample of the Gershwin staple "Summertime," most of the jazzy "Gershwinisms" can be found peppered throughout the drum and bass lines. (In addition to the trumpet, trombone and saxophone assortments found occasionally.)
One of the reasons for the use of jazz was the fact that bassist Eric Wilson's father, Billy Wilson, was a drummer in a Big Band. Mr. Wilson in turn became future Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh's drum teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sublime - Sublime Dec 27 2003
By nimrod
Format:Audio CD
4 Stars...BLASPHEMY! I'm sure that is what a lot of you are thinking. 4, not 5, because it does occasionally grow tiresome in one sitting, and it doesn't compare to other true 5 star masterpieces. Its somewhere between 4 and 5, but there ain't no decimals, and this ain't no Miles Davis album.
Don't get me wrong though, this album is magnificent. Ska...punk...rap...reggae...whatever...its all here. Listen to the slow groove of "Garden Grove", and then the blistering punk of "Seed". And anybody who doubts Brad's ability as a guitarist should listen to the solo in that track - fantastic. Sublime did stuff that bands in the early-mid 90's weren't doing. Come on, theres a trombone solo on "Wrong Way" which is for all intensive purposes a song meant for Brad to rap. Rap and trombone? I rest my case on the originality of Sublime.
Do they make it all work? Hell yes they do. They sound equally at home in reggae (circa "40 Oz. To Freedom") as they do playing punk or ska. Melodic guitar riffs are everywhere and the rhythm section is tight. Brad's lyrics are intelligently written and well-expressed vocally...from the socially conscious "Wrong Way" to the sexual-innuendo drenched "Caress me Down". On top of all this integrity, the disc is damn catchy too. You'll be boppin your head and singin along.
Like I said earlier, 17 tracks is a bit long, especially with "Pawn Shop", their little dub experiment dragging at 6+ minutes. It's a good track, but can be boring. Also, at about track 10, the songs start to sound alike, all being similar-tempo melodic rockers. Of course, all these songs are good, but the whole disc in 1 sitting is not advised unless you're actively listening, or playing this in a party-setting. If you're just chillin out to this disc, it might seem a little long.

Like a major portion of Sublime fans, the 1996 self-titled album was my first taste of the ska-punk-reggae-dub-dancehall hybrid called Sublime. I was only a freshman in high school, seven years ago when I was hooked to the band's first single, "What I Got" and instantly, I was converted into a die-hard Sublime fan. Saying I love Sublime is an understatement. Whether it was the easygoing Southern California reggae/dub vibe, or the raucous hardcore punk, or Brad's passionate vocals, or the creative and insightful lyrics, it's not hard for me to connect instantly with Sublime's music. Here's a track-by-track rundown:
1. Garden Grove - Decent, steady-paced dub opener which commands you to give it a few listens to like it. Brad's soulful, catchy, semi-rap vocals carry the first part of the song. Fair mixing closes the track, but it's a rather long outro comprising solely of these mixes. 3.5/5.
2. What I Got - Sublime's trademark song. Brad's bouncy, rapping vocals are the highlight of the track, enhancing the catchy drum beat and guitar rhythm. 5/5.
3. Wrong Way - Another radio-friendly trademark song. It reminds you of the band's 40 Oz. single, "Date Rape", in that it is chiefly ska-based, but with a greater touch of reggae. 4.5/5.
4. Same In The End - One of my favorites, a blaring hardcore punk assault, reminiscent of Sublime's underground style. Brad's speedy rate matches the catchiness and pace of the song well. 5/5.
5. April 29, 1992 (Miami) - Sublime's most hip-hop styled track, which is about the L.A. riots. It's that type of song you would either love to repeat over and over or skip it entirely. 4.5/5.
6. Santeria - Another sing-along in the same lines of "What I Got". Relaxed Latin-sounding vibe to the track, which contrasts Brad's passionate, energetic vocals.
