Product Description

Long Beach Dub Allstars ~ Wonders Of The World

Amazon.com

On their follow-up to 1999's Right Back, the Long Beach Dub Allstars continue stirring their musical melting pot. Wonders of the World combines heavy dub, shimmery pop, bouncy ska, and aggro alt-rock into a disc that roller-coasters between spaced out ("Wonders Dub II" and "Grass Cloud") and punked out ("No Way"). The ex-Sublime members also pulled in some talent from the hip-hop world, getting will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas on "Sunny Hours" and Chali2na from Jurassic 5 on "Life Goes On." Even with all the special appearances and genre-crossing, though, the Allstars don't crack the surface, covering the same ground that bands like Sugar Ray and 311are already treading. While the band does flow seamlessly between rock and reggae, Wonders of the World feels coated in a tepid, radio-friendly gloss that, despite a few bright spots, dulls by the end of the disc. --Jennifer Maerz

There seem to be a lot of negative reviews for this album. I don't see why, So it's not Sublime. Big deal.
Wonders Dub I- good intro, but could've been longer. A
Sunny Hours- the radio hit from this album, featuring Will.I.Am. Great happy summer song. A+
Listen to DJs- great reggae track. Pays tribute to the greats of dancehall, such as Johnny Osbourne, Mad Cobra, Josey Wales, and Admiral Bailey. A+
Rolled Up- title sounds like a weed song, but isnt. catchy and radio-friendly with a light ska-pop vibe. A
Every Mother's Dream- high-energy punk song, i think its a cover. somewhat reminiscent of "paddle out" from Sublime's self-titled. B+
Life Goes On- great hip-hop/reggae song with 3 guest vocalists including Chali2na from Jurassic 5 and Tippa Irie. A
It Ain't Easy- another solid song with upbeat ska rhythms. A-
Luke- great slow reggae tune with cool story. A
Wonders Dub II- an improvement on WDI mainly because it's longer. A
No Way- more of an edgy ska-metal vibe. not that great. B-
Lonely End- back to the smooth reggae. great lyrics. A
Talkin tha Truth- my favorite on the second half of the album. the closest they'll come to an anti-drug song ("Stick to da weed!) anti-heroin lyrics no doubt inspired by brad nowell's untimely death A+
Free Love- the album kinda weakens for a few tracks here. good reggae song about having a 3-way. C
Lies- "Lies wont set you free-- so why do foolish things?" B-
Kablammin It- VERY sexual song about, well, kablammin it. the music sounds like a "caress me down" retread. kinda funny though. B-
Grass Cloud- a 6+ minute long instrumental encompassing evry style implemented by LBDAS from quasi-dub turntablism at the start to heavy punk guitars at the end. B+
Sunny Hours (Reprise)- the original without the rap or loud guitar. its just as good or better than the original. A+

Lately, I have realized that not a lot of real good music have been put out in the past years. One day i was searching in the mall for a new cd i would want to try out. I rembered hearing about a band formed with some of the remaining members of Sublime. I found it in the store and brought in home. The first few times I didn't really like it. After a few times I started to like more. After like a month I would listen to it at least once a day. the cd starts out great With Sunny Hours feat Will I Am and Rolled up, both songs at least up to par with good Sublime songs. It gets even better with songs like Life Goes On, It Aint easy and No Way. The cd finishes a little slow with another suuny hours and grass clouds which is instrumental but still hits some good songs like talkin the truth and kablammin it. Exept for the two just mentioned, this cd is all A material and should be a part of any Sublime liking fan or any fan of just music. It doesn't get that much attention but is definitely worth it. plus it has an awesome cd cover.

I'm a big fan of Sublime albums, and now Dub Allstar ones too. I have all ways enjoyed reggae, and these guys deliver it with some dub, and a little punk. I was bummed when I learned that Bud had left to form Eyes Adrift and Eric and RAS had started Long Beach Shortbus. But I think the Allstars were formed to finish some unfinished business, and now Eric and Bud have gone their own ways to make their own marks. If your a Sublime fan try the Shortbus CD. If your a Sublime junky try the Juice Bros on the Skunk comp "Long Beach Blvd." There is a good live version of Every Mother's Dream on "When Punkers Were Punk" sung by the original singer - with Mike McCready of Pearl Jam on guitar, and Eric on bass.

Can't imagine this is for everyone, but for us musiclovers who likes surprises, it's a treat. Haven't heard much Sublime so I guess they're next.
The peak of this album is the fantastic usage of F.Zappa's "I'm the Slime" on Luke, that by itself is a cool song but with a little help from the slime is a masterpiece.
Nicely sung, playfully played using many instruments (which I for one love) and rapped with a cool that noone will resist.
Some of the solos is a bit out of place, where the song'd be better off without. But, it's a great album and I'll bring it to the beach.

Long Beach Dub Allstars' latest CD is really good and has a lot of creativity and great sounds within it. It definitely DOES NOT "dull out" by the end of the disc,as a critic reviewed.Granted,there are a few songs that could have been left out,but most of them have a good flow with original lyrics. Some people have said "don't compare them to Sublime", but it's kind of hard not to when they ARE the remaining members of Sublime! It's almost scary how much the singer sounds like Bradley in some songs. For example,around 1 minute 22secs into the track "Lonely End",the singer sounds just like him for a few seconds--which is surely NOT a bad thing! Bradley Nowell is one of the greatest losses in music history, and it's great to hear his style living on with Long Beach Dub Allstars. Give this album a few listens to truly appreciate it. HIGHLY recommended!BEST SONGS TO CHECK OUT: #2. Sunny Hours (w/ Black Eyed Peas Will.I.Am)#3. Listen to DJ's#4. Rolled Up#7. It Aint Easy#11. Lonely End#13. Free Love#15 Kablammin' It #17.Sunny Hours (reprise)
