Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The celebratory spirit behind tribute albums doesn't suit every subject. More than a single swaggering rock star has come off as limp and self-loving, and thoughtful chanteuses have gone sappy or sour--which is why saluting the California garage punks of Sublime makes a lot of sense. For one thing, it's nearly impossible to screw up the collapsed band's sunny, to-hell-with-it vibe--its music is a mood encapsulated--and for another, any artist cool enough to take on one of its songs knows instinctively to embrace the ska sensibility and not skimp on energy. What we get with Look at All the Love, is a party with all the right props. No Doubt was an obvious choice and, on the disc's only live track, "DJ's," Gwen Stefani turns in a mid-speed sway-and-bobber; Jack Johnson chills on "Badfish/Boss DJ"; G. Love goes for funk-rock broke with "Greatest Hits"; and the artful Greyboy Allstars send "Doin Time" to jazz school. A single caveat: Hipsters who followed Sublime in its mid-90s heyday and have since had kids should order tiny earplugs with their copies. Fishbone does an admirable job with "Date Rape," but it's still as profane as ever. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

"An impressively diverse cast of musicians from a wide range of genres [show] just how much Sublime's music transcends classification ... nothing short of stellar." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Deliciously eclectic." - CMJ

"A tribute to Sublime as big as Bradley Nowell's heart and as expansive as the band's musical vision." - OC WEEKLY

The evening of October 24, 2005 was one very special night in music. The Music Box at Fonda Theater played host to Look at All the Love We Found: A Tribute to Sublime LIVE, a benefit concert to honor and celebrate the legacy of one of most influential bands of the nineties as well as to raise funds for those in need. Artists like Los Lobos, Unwritten Law, Ozomatli, Blackalicious, Fishbone, and The Ziggens came together for one night only to put on a show for the ages. And, to top it off, many of the artists from the evening (as well as some surprise special guests) teamed up to belt out Sublime classics in the ultimate jam session. Now, everyone can relive that magical night with this special CD+DVD combo!

The audio CD contains never-before-heard covers of Sublime hits and fan favorites, from a brand-new studio recording of "Ebin" by The Banned with Chuck D (Public Enemy) to a rockin' live version of Fishbone's "Date Rape." These incredible tracks were not featured on the Look at All the Love We Found CD, and can only be found here!

The DVD features include a performance of "Pawn Shop" with original Sublime member Bud Gaugh on drums, a music video for Fishbone's version of "Date Rape," and backstage interviews with Los Lobos, MURS, Unwritten Law, and more. It also includes an in-depth photo slideshow and a behind-the-scenes look at the all-star jam rehearsal that included Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta), Eric Wilson (Sublime), and many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album June 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
After a long, long, long wait this superb album is finally out. It does not disappoint one bit. Each of the artists put their own spin on the covered songs. Highlights include J.Johnson making "Badfish" into a classic once again, Josh from Bargain Music does justice to "Get Out" by adding verses on how he came in touch with Sublime, Fishbone "ska-up" "Date Rape." No Doubt does a live cover of "DJ's." Avail speeds up "Santeria" which works surprisingly well. Bass legend Mike Watt lays down a mean one of "Work That We Do". Greyboy Allstars lay down some jazz knowledge on the already jazz influenced "Doin' Time." Not surprisingly many tracks on this album undoubtedly could turn into huge hits however knowing the nature of the record business this will not happen since the CD doesn't have major label support. Overall this album is a must for any Sublime fans or even fans of the bands participating in this project. Also the CD itself comes with a short interesting bookled shedding some light on how Sublime affected the bands involved.

2011 Update: Even 6 years after its release I still find myself occasionally listening to this album. Good stuff indeed. They don't make them like they used to anymore.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have! June 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A tribute album is for the fans. If you liked a few Sublime songs, then's there's really no point. Then again, these songs do stand as great songs on their own. I think it is great that Sublime has been able to help a lot of other SoCal (and more)artists and more get some recognition (a true Sublime fan will know what I'm talking about). The inclusion of those artists on this album is genious (in my opinion). Those would Be Filibuster and Half Pint, Bargain Music, The Ziggens and Half Pint, all of Which I would have no knowledge of without Sublime. Frank Jordan is also a great band I know from Sublime (Skunk and Cornerstone), but not on this CD. I was surprised not to see Slightly Stoopid on here as well. The only track on here that I'm not that jazzed about is the Greyboy Allstars version of Dion' Time. Don't get me wrong, it's good but I'd rather not hear an instrumental for some reason. I was grateful to see the No Doubt cover of DJs on here, old or not. I saw it once on a No Doubt live video and loved it and wished I could have a copy of the song. Now i do. i was also excited to see Jack Johnson on here as well. he is a great songwriter and I'm sure Sublime fans would like his own stuff. It makes you feel like you should be on a boat (then again, pissed off if you're not, but since it's a great mellow CD (Sitting Waiting Wishing(?) you're not that pissed since the CD is awesome (follow me?). Despite a previous reviewer's opinion of Fishbone (he called it crap!), their "Date Rape" is pretty sweet and is actually psychotic! The Ozomatli, Los Lobos, and Filibuster/Half Pint track are also highly notable. I thought it was great that Half Pint was on the disc. Sublime has 'borrowed' a lot from him. It would have been funny to hear him cover "What I Got" though since that is his song. Has anyone ever done a cover of a cover of their own song before? Hmmm?

Long/short: Great CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars rad tributes June 23, 2005
By paulo
Format:Audio CD
bradley would be glad to hear this..it's a really awesome cd with awesome covers by all who are on it. i didn't think i would like every song on this but i do except maybe for grayboy allstar's cover of doin' time (it drags on to me). otherwise every cover from jack johnson's "badfish/boss dj" to watts/haden's cover of "work that we do" is awesome. the only thing other then grayboy allstars cover that was a bit of a downner for me was no doubt's live cover..it's an old live cover, you would like to think that those guys could update it in the studio. those are just tiny things though that i'm sure i'll get over, over time. what counts is that this cd is awesome and you should really pick it up if your a sublime fan or even if you wanna hear something different such as different takes on great sublime songs. it's well worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you are a true sublime you'll want to hear this December 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Obviously no one can do a Sublime song better than Sublime but what I like about this album is how everyone put their own style into each of the songs. They didn't try to sound like Sublime but at the same time, you can still imagine Sublime being involved with the making of these songs. The book insert has a little input from each artist on what Sublime meant to them which I enjoyed reading.

Notable tracks are Jack Johnson's version of Badfish/Boss DJ and Abstract Rude's Waiting for my Ruca. Los Lobos did a great job on Pawn Shop as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tribute October 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I see some people complaining about this band and that band being on this tribute album, and truth is, it wouldn't be very good without a wide array of artists. What better way to give a "tribute" to diversely inspired band, than to have a diverse group of artists cover their music? Sure, the songs might not all be the best, but if your buying this album, chances are, you've already heard Sublime's version of the song several hundred times. So it closes the mind a bit to a new sounding old song. I, personally, have been kinda tired of Sublime after having their music intravenously hooked up to me for a number of years. This tribute is just what I needed to remind me of one of my favorite bands of all time, while at the same time giving me new versions of songs by some of my other favorite bands.
