Image of Sublime


It's been a long and wild ride since sublime's first gig way back in 1988 in Long Beach, CA. Their explosive debut not only set off a small-scale riot but also marked the beginning of a rare, genre-busting collaboration. Once known as the "below average garage punk band that every kid wanted to play at his party," sublime steadily escalated from a group of backyard beer ... Read more in Amazon's Sublime Store

Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars not for fans with no patience August 17, 2004
By b.o.b.
Format:Audio CD
i must say, this album is by far the most hotly debated sublime album out of any of them, so i will say this before going on...if you are a fan of the sublime songs you hear on the radio, and think the rest of their music is a bit off the wall, then don't even bother looking into this album, you will be sorely disappointed by the lack of commercialism on this recording. even their debut album '40 oz. to freedom' sounds like a sellout disc when compared to this one. that being said, what you will find on this album is the most intensely personal recording that bradley and the boys put together. most of it was recorded in various living rooms around the long beach/south l.a. area, and you will notice a rather poor sound quality on many of the tracks, but after noticing this, and listening to them a few times, you realize how little the sound quality really matters. in fact, there are only a few songs that could be considered singles, such as 's.t.p.' (which stands for secret tweeker pad), 'greatest hits', where bradley pays homage to bert susanka and his punk outfit the ziggens, and 'saw red', a punk/ska track featuring gwen stefani from the band no doubt. a few of the songs are rough sketches of songs that would later be included on the self-titled album. 'lincoln highway dub' is a jazz inspired insturmental that was later completed and retitled 'santeria', and 'steady b loop dub' is another insturmental that was eventually reworked and went on to become 'garden grove'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Sublime - Not over-produced February 5, 2006
By DanVta
Format:Audio CD
I had the good fortune of being turned on to Sublime early on watching surf videos and listening to Kroq, and had the better fortune of checking them out live in Vta before Brad's untimely death. As great as their other albums are, this is the album that truly shows how diverse and talented this group was. They do an amazing dub cover of Tosh's Stepping Razor, a pop/punk/ska "Saw Red" featuring a young Gwen Stefani (when ND was actually a ska group), a hardcore punk version of "Pool Shark" and a dark, soulful acoustic version of the same song, an instrumental/dub of "Santaria" (which I like better than the vocal version), and a bunch of other great songs. In all, this is the only album to exhibit the full potential of the group, and is the closest thing to the mix of songs that you would have seen at a live Sublime show. Perhaps not the best album for the casual listener, but for those wanting a greater appreciation of what Sublime was about, I'd suggest you start here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same as regular Robbin' The Hood exept for Date Rape August 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It is the exact same cd as the regular one exept it isnt all black on the front of the cd. It has Sublime written in white. And it has The origonal version of Date Rape at the end of the cd. Its just played at a little slower tempo

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime's definitive CD! Very underrated! June 1, 2004
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars lo-fi masterpiece November 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
this album may not be for everyone, but that doesnt meant it isn't good. repeat listens are necessary to fully appreciate the beauty of this album. for years i couldn't get into this album but eventually it clicked with me and my friends. "pool shark" is heartbreaking and beautiful, one of sublime's best acoustic songs. "saw red" is an upbeat punk-ska number that features gwen from no-doubt in their pre-"spiderwebs" days. there are a number of very good acoustic songs and some excellent dubs--check out "work that we do." "lincoln highway" is an instrumental dub of "santeria" and it is mesmerizing. it may take patience, but this has become by far my favorite sublime cd. as bradley sings on "boss dj": "it's so nice, i wanna hear the same song twice..."

5.0 out of 5 stars underrated from day one... August 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Sublime has proven to their fans that they con rock with 40 oz. and the self titled album, but this on is my personal favorite for the variety. This album has Sublime scratching turntables on hip hop songs, brad alone with his acoustic on songs like boss d.j. and the county jail song(the only blues song on this CD), playing organs for marley-like reggae tunes, playing different versions of their radio hits, and duetting with every one fron too short to gwen stefani. Although it takes a while to get into, this is a great album.
