Product Description

Product Description

Australian Release featuring Sublime's Release Robbin' the Hood with Bonus Tracks. Tracks Include Date Rape, Trench Town Rock, Raleigh Soliloquy Pt3. Mary, Freeway Time in L.a. County Jail, and Others.


Long Beach garage kings Sublime rode the cresting wave of late-'80s/early-'90s Cali punk to a well-received 1996 major-label debut whose success was overshadowed by tragedy: frontman Brad Nowell died of a heroin overdose just a month before its release. This 1994 album was their freshman indie outing and the record that largely secured their ticket to the majors. Instead of building on the energetic, if formulaic, punk-reggae fusion of their 1992 40 Oz. to Freedom (with its sometimes awkward, too-dumb-to-be-ironic lyrical bent), Robbin' displays a Nowell whose slow evolution as a songwriter is more than compensated by an eager plundering of old-school rap influences and ska beats. It's a record that moves the band beyond often-stultifying punk clichés to a true musical adventure whose buoyant sense of discovery is almost palpable, and one that proves that their '96 big-label breakthrough was no accident. --Jerry McCulley

How could anyone that calls themself a Sublime fan rate this CD anything less than 5 stars or call it anything worse than their second best album (after 40 oz)?
I'll be honest, I did get into Sublime in '96 with the release of their S/T album and I thought it was a great album back then. After a few listens to 40 oz though, I realized it was a much better CD. People told me that Robbin the Hood was a bad album and that I should stay away from it, so I decided not to buy it. Finally I decided to get this album and listen for myself to see how good it was, and I'm damn glad I did! This CD is now my favorite Sublime CD, with 40 oz as a close second.
Unless you're 15 or something and just getting into Sublime, I might understand why you dont like this CD, because your used to all the crap that's on the radio these days and Sublime's S/T album is their most mainstream one. Get 40 oz though, and once you like that more than the S/T, get this and give it a few spins and you'll see what I mean.

This may not be a great mainstream, video, radio album. But this is some of the best jamming you'll find. Sublime without the pressure, the expectations, and the influence of the media and the fans. This is pure. Just the guys rockin out, lettin it flow. If you're into studio cuts, don't even bother. But if you wanna hear the minds of Sublime, this is the best you can find. Here are the beginnings of songs such as "See Red" and "Santeria" before they were honed to studio masterpieces. Also is the origin of the Smashmouth hit "Walkin on the Sun." Not until I began to listen to the song did I realize that Smashmouth hadn't created the song. It's amazing to see the process in which Sublime went through to reach the top. It's not often that artists can produce such quality music without the refinement by the studio. Yet this album will keep you jammin, and it has everything that makes Sublime who they are. This is the real deal, uncut and raw.

Not sure what machine most of these tracks were recorded on (some 4, some 8, some 16 or 24 track), but the magic of Bradley is on every single one. Many songs, mostly short, which all roll together like a magical trip through a very weird place...this was a real turning point from 40oz in that the songs are much more "down" and dark...you can really hear the heroin and all the weight on Brad's shoulders speaking on a lot of the music, which evokes a very dark, sometimes sarcastic tone. There are plenty of exciting and somewhat hidden meanings and sounds in many of the songs, and this album deserves to be heard on a pair of good headphones. This album was concieved in a crackhouse when Bradley was obviously touched by both moments of what I consider genius as well as fear, pain and confusion...you can hear if for yourself! Not like their self titled at all, which was so heavily produced in my opinion that they lost a part of what made their earlier work like this so precious and genuine...Buy it today!

This is by no way a 5 star album or even a 4 and a half star album. its sublimes third best album and although its not a great album, its also not a bad album. all those supposid sublime fans that say this album sucks probubly listened to this album once and put it away. this album does not leave a good first impression at all after litening to other sublime albums so i beg you, give this alum a chance!! it will grow on you if you are a true sublime fan. if your not a true sublime fan then dont bother-get 40 oz or sub titled instead. boss dj is perhaps my fav sublime song and steppin razor is a great song too. the one thing that i was really impressed with is that this album has a song that is 100% true rap, and its really good althoug short. its called saw red, its really good and now ive seen everything from sublime, that being there first 100% rap song. Trust me, give this album a chance, dont listen to the first 4 songs and throw it away. keep listening, itll grow on you.

I hope you can if you buy this CD. This is one crazy album. Some of the songs were recorded in a studio, but most of them were recorded on Bradley's four-track in random places. In fact, on some of the songs, you can hear fools kickin' it in the background. For that reason, it's very raw. Sometimes, that can frustrate people. So if you get frustrated easily by songs that don't follow the basic direction of rock music today, this album will make you punch holes in the wall.
Truly, this album is the work of a madman. "Free Loop Dub" incorporates a crazy reggae bass line with percussions from a drum machine with some crazy effects to make a great song. But no doubt about it, most of the best songs on the CD are the ones that were recorded in a studio, like "Saw Red", "STP", "Falling Idols", and "All You Need". Nevertheless, some of the songs recorded on Brad's four-track are sweet as, like "Work That We Do", "Pool Shark (Acoustic)", and "Freeway Time".
Anyway, if you're the kind of guy or gal who loves to sit back, and listen to some groovy, mellow music, get this CD.
P.S. The "Santeria" remix solo is tight on "Lincoln Highway Dub". END
