Sublime: Sublime

Sound — 10
This albums sound is very refreshing. There's tons of ska upstroke on guitars, catchy bass, a Jimi Hendrix-style song, acoustics, tons of solos, and nice and dirty punk rock. Each song is unique and stands out a lot.

Bradley Nowell's lyrics are mainly about drugs, sex, playing guitar, and love for his dog Lou. Isn't that original? And his voice is really unique too. It really stands out.

Overall Impression — 10
Brad's death was truly a waste to the world, but if he didn't, this probably wouldn't have been the masterpiece it is today. It wouldn't have been the diary of a broke, drug-addict, punk rock king living in SoCal. My fave songs are Same In The End, What I Got, Garden Grove, Santeria, Seed and April 29, 1992, but the whole album is really amazing. I would go out and buy it again if it was stolen. This is an album that everyone should go and get and have a listen.
