BEST OVERALL SUBLIME ALBUM,
This review is from: Second Hand Smoke (Audio CD)
This is my favorite album of my sublime collection. It will take you 2 or 3 times to really start feeling the vibe on this compact disc. It may not have the more popular sublime songs(santeria, what i got, smoke 2 joints, etc.), but u can play the album from start to finish w/o skipping a beat. It flows like the mighty mississippi river. I recommend playing it on a sunny afternoon in your auto w/ the windows rolled down or smoking the funky grass or at the beach or at a dope party. It is very laid back, aka chill music. Here is a quick overview of each song:
1. doin time - "summertime and the livin's easy". DOPE
2. get out - funny, crazy. DECENT
songs 3-6 really go together nicely
3. romeo - gets your toes tapping. GOOD
4. new realization - just great tunes on this 1. GOOD
5. don't push - SWEET drums,music and vocals. Slow but Nice. DOPE
6. slow ride - if your in love u will love this song. BEAUTIFUL drums & vocals. CALIENTE!
7. chick on my tip - u might skip this 1 the 1st/2nd time but once u get through the 1st minute, its gets good. "O, OO if u change your ways" DECENT
8. had a dat - sadly the only song i skip. SKIP IT
9. trenchtown rock - tribute to Bobby. uh, O.k.
10. badfish - soft yet always get me in the party mood, a great song PARTY ON WAYNE
11. drunk drivin' - intro very short
12. saw red f. gwen stefani - U KNOW U CAN'T RESIST HER. GWEN IS HOT!
13. garbage grove - "garden grove" classic sublime GOOD
14. april 29th 1992 f. KRS-One - turn the bass way up on this 1. If your looking for trouble i beg u to play this awesome song. KRS-one's voice should be on the show COPS. SWEET JESUS!
15. superstar punani - fast & funky.u don't want it to end. SUPER
16. legal dub - alright just get out billy bong thorton and just legalize it, & we will advertise it. DOPE IS GOOD!
17. what's really goin' wrong - very ska like. DECENT
18. doin' time f. MAD LION - reggaed out version SMOOTH & NICE
19. thanx dub - instrumental, similar to instrumentals done by the beastie boys on a # of their alubms, but w/ more ska riffs.
A GOOD WAY TO END IT
conclusions: Give this album a few listening sessions. It is one of sublime's slower albums. It really displays the many talents of the late Bradley Nowell and sublime. It is really shines in the summertime, when the livings easy, on the microphone w/ ross m g. BUY IT NOW!
