In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the self-titled Sublime album and to pay tribute to Bradley Nowell's original vision, the long-awaited, two disc Sublime Deluxe Edition is released. Anyone familiar with the explosion of alternative rock in the 1990s knows one of the greatest injustices of the period was that Sublime singersongwriter-guitarist Bradley Nowell did not live to see the release and massive success of Sublime. Before the final album was originally released, it was re-sequenced and the lyrics to the song Doin' Time were edited due to sampling clearance restrictions. The 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features Bradley's original vision & sequence on disc one, featuring Trenchtown Rock, the song that Bradley originally wanted to start the album with but was taken off entirely instead, and Bradley's original vocals for the song Doin' Time. Disc Two contains 15 bonus tracks with 8 unreleased tracks including instrumental versions. 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 This is a two-disc deluxe 10th anniversary edition.
Sublime is the eponymous third and final studio album by American ska punk band Sublime. Produced by Paul Leary and David Kahne, the album was released on July 30, 1996 in the United States by MCA Records. Sublime formed in 1988 in Long Beach, California by vocalist/guitarist Bradley Nowell, bassist Eric Wilson, and drummer Bud Gaugh. The trio toured heavily from their inception while developing their sound. Their first studio release - 40 Oz. to Freedom (1992) - featured the single "Date Rape", which attracted heavy airplay in Southern California. MCA signed the band and distributed their second independent album, Robbin' the Hood, in 1994. Sublime has since been listed as one of the most well-regarded albums of the 1990s by Spin and Rolling Stone
Californian Ska-Punks' 1996 album featuring 'Same In The End', 'Jailhouse' & 'Under My Voodoo'.

Smash Mouth - Astro Lounge - Cd Expounding on the theme from their hit "Walking on the Sun" (from the multiplatinum Fush Yu Mang), the verbose songs on Astro Lounge are filled with examinations of societal ills, personal woes, and other disappointments entailed in this thing known as Humanity. Yes, the album would seem heavy-handed were not the overriding sentiments filtered through Smash Mouth's "Hey, dude, let's party!" brand of musical optimism. Ranging from reggae to lounge to psychedelia to surfer rock to a sort of punk-a-go-go, Smash Mouth's influences have little in common with one another save for one important exception--they all evoke images of personal freedom and defiance of oppression, reminding us that, gee, fighting the Man can actually be raucous good fun! It's been a long time since a band with this much commercial potential could say something thought-provoking and get the party going. On "All Star," Steve Harwell sings, "Only shooting stars break the mold." A fitting prophecy for this outstanding alterna-pop album. --Beth Massa
