In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the self-titled Sublime album and to pay tribute to Bradley Nowell's original vision, the long-awaited, two disc Sublime Deluxe Edition is released. Anyone familiar with the explosion of alternative rock in the 1990s knows one of the greatest injustices of the period was that Sublime singersongwriter-guitarist Bradley Nowell did not live to see the release and massive success of Sublime. Before the final album was originally released, it was re-sequenced and the lyrics to the song Doin' Time were edited due to sampling clearance restrictions. The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features Bradley's original vision & sequence on disc one, featuring Trenchtown Rock, the song that Bradley originally wanted to start the album with but was taken off entirely instead, and Bradley's original vocals for the song Doin' Time. Disc Two contains 15 bonus tracks with 8 unreleased tracks including instrumental versions.
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

Most of the songs are about sex, drugs, alcohol, parties and riots. These are just a few things that Sublime experienced during their somewhat short career. Although many will think that writing songs about these issues is pretty dull considering that almost every band nowdays writes about them it was amazing how Brad Nowell could translate a concert riot into an amazingly catchy piece of music. This was the creativity that Sublime posessed.
This album is definetly the most popular in Sublime's catalog and everybody I know has this cd. And why not? Two different hit versions of WHAT I GOT appear here as well as SANTERIA, and CARESS ME DOWN which also got a decent amount of airplay on the radio. However other tunes here like APRIL 29 1992 (MIAMI), SAME IN THE END,
WRONG WAY and BURRITOS all had huge potential to be hits. The latter two mentioned there had some amazing lyrics. THE BALLAD OF JOHNNY BUTT is an interesting laid back number. UNDER MY VOODOO is a great rocker. GET READY is a loose feeling reggae tune. DOIN' TIME shows the band tinker with jazz music somewhat. SEED is a fast paced reggae rocker. PAWN SHOP and JAIL HOUSE are good tunes that display Sublime's musical style. PADDLE OUT is a pointless fast paced punk rocker. That song and the laid back lazy feeling opener GARDEN GROVE are the only two songs here that aren't my favourites but even they are still listenable.
Overall 'Sublime' is one of the best albums of the 1990's. If you want to get into this band this is an excellent start. I also highly recommeded the bands' first album '40 oz. To Freedom' both these albums are essential Sublime. Highly recommended!
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.
now then, by now everybody knows who sublime was, and what their music was like...on top of that, most people enjoy listening to sublime...well, why? because it is, quite simply, some of the best, most original music put out in the final decade of the 20th century
the boys from Long Beach, on this, my favorite sublime album, put together rap, punk, reggae, ska, alt-rock, and dub into one blend of lyrics, guitars, drums and beats...Brad's rhymes in songs like "Garden Grove" and "What I Got" are sick, making you wonder how he came up w/them...the earlier part of the album has alotta ska-influenced, off-beat guitars..."Wrong Way" is one of the best songs here, w/great lyrics, a sick beat, and a trombone solo! later on, the album goes into more rock-oriented cuts, complete w/masterful guitar solos, and soulful singing from Brad...just listen to "Under My Voodoo" or "Burritos" to hear what i mean...
these guys, in these 17 songs, put together some of the best music i have ever heard, lyrically and instrumentally...it is music that is listenable for anyone (assuming the young ones dont mind the lyrics hehe) and just makes you feel good...spin this disc and you will be off somewhere else, where there is only laughter and music...sounds kinda dumb, but its true, Sublime is just that good...they are arguably the most novel, original act of the 90s, and showed the world that real rock still existed out of the pre-fabricated corporate music world...they were pioneers that found their end all too soon...if youve never listened to sublime, you dont know what youre missing, and if you dont find out, it is truly a mistake...they are truly brilliant and amazing, and their music deserves to be enjoyed by all...RIP Brad Nowell...peace
