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 comes 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 Chili Peppers and Fishbone, obvious forebears, Sublime become slightly tiresome after 17 songs, but the band is great in short doses. --Steve Knopper

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.

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.

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.

with the single exception of kurt cobain's murder at the hands of courtney love, the accidental overdose and subsequent death of bradley nowell ranks as the most signifigant tragedy of the american music scene during the 1990's, and it is never more evident than when listening to this recording. unlike the album's predecessors ('40 oz. to freedom 'and 'robbin the hood'), which were both assembled under lo-fidelity and sometimes homemade circumstances, the band's first major label release was given a healthy budget, was recorded in two very dynamic studios and was overseen by some very well known producers and engineers. although the album is slightly homogonized and certainly more commercially acceptable than the band's earlier releases, the quality of the songwriting and musicianship is what accounts for the heart and soul of this historic recording. the fact that it was more professionally produced and has superior sound quality is simply a part of the evolution of the band. no matter what kind of music you like, you will find it on this album. if you like reggae, it's there. if you like ska, it's there. if you like hip-hop, it's there. if you like punk, it's there. if you like blues, surf music, and even a little rock, it's all there, waiting for you to hit play. never had a single band attempted to fuse so many styles together on a major release, and no band has even come close to acheiving the level of quality that this album has shown since it's 1996 release. although many bands have been influenced and sometimes borrowed from the style of sublime (goldfinger, authority zero, pepper) none are on the same level, and this album proves it.Read more ›
