40 Oz. To Freedom
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

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.
1. ruca- The cd starts off with lou dog barking (he's the dog on the back cover), and then goes into ruca. I listen to ruca non-stop the first time i heard it. With just a one note bass and some kicks, this song is brilliant. Bradley's song writing skills show early on
2. 40. oz. to freedom- This song is great. it's sort of a ska song, but then the guitar kicks in, swithching the song at the chorus.
3. smoke 2 joints- classic. This is the only song i know where in my hometown, the gangsters, the punks, and of course- the pot heads jam out too. This is sublime's most popular street song. Great lyrics. I'm not too sure though i who did it first (the toyes or sublime), Bradley said he was jacked from the toyes, if anyone knows, email me.
4. We only die...- a sort of punk song (its a cover, forgot who did it first), with Bradley's great voice. Picks up the cd to the next level
5.Dont push- Where to begin with this song, its brilliant. Alot of people dont get how good this song is. Bradley made three (maybe more)versions of this song, and he's not recycling lyrics, he's just looking for the right fit. The lyrics trip you out, they're so great. The endong is great too- tweeking every weekend and we just cant take it...
6. 5446/ball and chain- Great party song. The song swithces up in the middle, its real good. Another cover
7. Badfish- one of sublime's top three songs. Has a great line- i swim but i wish i never learned (right now) waters too polluted with germs-, talking about his heroin addiction.Read more ›
