I bought this c.d. because like a poser I liked the songs on mtv. However when I stuck it in my car's c.d. player I was blown away after each track. There are some songs in life that have a good beat and there are others that carry a good little story to them, these songs carry both, great words great beats on every track. After listing to this c.d. twice you listen to the words so intently that you can sing along with the windows open, and just feel great. Must own c.d. for anyone. Great from beginning to end, a rarity.

Growing up in Southern California, Bradley Nowell had been exposed to many forms of music, such as rock, punk, rap, hip-hop, reggae, ska, and jazz. After graduating from high school, Bradley attended University of California, Santa Cruz. One semester short of a degree in business, Bradley dropped out to focus his energies on a music career. He soon met bass player Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh. In 1988, the three formed a garage band that combined all of Bradley's favorite musical genres. They named that band Sublime. Sublime soon cultivated a devoted following throughout Southern California, particularly on college campuses.

Bradley Nowell's tragic death at age 28, from a lethal dose of Mexican tar heroin, came only about a month before the release of the band's major label debut album, "Sublime."

In light of Bradley's death, MCA considered not releasing this album at all. They eventually decided that the best way to show respect for Bradley was to issue the album he had worked so hard to create. Upon release, "Sublime" quickly sold over three million copies, making it a bittersweet success. Bradley's own father said he wished the album had not been a hit, because it was painful to hear his deceased son's voice blaring from car stereos all over Long Beach.

My supervisor introduced me to this album back in 1997. He helped me understand that there is more to Sublime and Bradley Nowell than you might at first assume. For example, "The Wrong Way" is an anti-prostitution song. And where Bradley does occasionally come across as a boastful male chauvinist (e.g., "take a load from my big gun"), he is most likely satirizing male chauvinism, or at the least portraying a character and not himself.

I'm amazed any of my Sublime CD's still work. They should be worn out by now. If you have never heard their music you are about to hear some real down to earth music. The beats and lyrics come alive in this album. Their music can be equated to almost any situation in your life. Pure Genius.

please don't listen to the review of steve knopper, since he has no idea what he's talking about. this is the album that made sublime a name in the mainstream, with classic tracks like 'what i got', 'wrong way', 'doin time' and 'santeria'. but as good as those songs are, they aren't the whole album, the album from track 1 to 18 is awesome music. this album does not get "tiresome after 17 songs" and the band isn't "great in short doses". knopper is a tool and doesn't know good music. this is good music in long non-stop doses. it doesn't matter if it's summer, fall, winter, spring, whatever time of the year it is, it's always good to listen to sublime. this is just good stuff and you won't be dissapointed, pick up this disk and the other sublime cds. the 2nd disk is cool with rare tracks and a few videos. this is a must have for any sublime fan.

I first heard Sublime at my friends house in '96, just before Brad died. He was visiting from New Zealand and bought a few casetes to listen to on his travels, two of them were sublime. So we listend and I loved it, the lyrics the rhythm, I can never ever get bored of it. So eventually(after he forced me to give them back to him..the day he left) I went out and bought every single sublime cd that there was. I found that they are all good. I love the way that Brad could, and still can make me feel happy. There is so much more to these SoCal artists than the tattoos and punk look that meets the eye, and I only hope that as many people as possible get to see that. R.I.P Bradley.
*also you should take a look at Long Beach Dub All Stars first album 'Right Back' LBDA is made up of the remaining two Sublime members and a couple other artists who played with Sublime, if you need something to do with your money, buy all the Sublime c.d's

This album is without a doubt my favorite album in my entire collection. I have all their other albums, respectively 40 Oz. to Freedom, Robbin' the Hood, the AWESOME new box set, the remastered gold(which does a really good job on remastering the first 2 albums' tracks) and countless bootlegs and live albums swarming in torrents swarming on the internet.

I still consider this to be their best musical statement. I feel this album truly is "All Killer, no filler" to quote a sum 41 album (don't crucify me please) and every song really stands out on its own. I think a lot of it does have to do with their newfound production on a major label. Ska music is fun, but their isn't much to it in most senses. Bradley's vocals stick out on all his albums, but until this album I found the music to be, well... not as good as his vocals. Crappy production. This album produced by Paul Leary and a team of other producers really brings out the music of Brad, Bud, and especially Eric. Listen to "Let's go Get Stoned" and then check out "Wrong Way" ... no comparison. Wrong Way just explodes out the door. As does every other track. From Paddle Out to Burritos every track is different. Pawn Shop is the only song of its length I listen to. I am ADD to the fullest and that slow simple rhythym keeps me from changing to another track somehow.

I think Heroin does have a lot to do with it. Obvously Brad was hooked on it for a large part of the production of this album and this album shows both sides of its effects. He stated that he was experimenting with the drug to bring him greatness and well... maybe it did. Wrong Way, What I Got, and all the "ska" songs they did sound better than anything they did in the past. So maybe it did help him grow musically.
