40 Oz. to Freedom [Explicit Lyrics]

( 17 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
With their debut, 40 Oz. to Freedom, Sublime appeal to alterna-punks but they cut a little deeper with their lyrics and their very aesthetic, which blends different cultures and sounds. Since Sublime have a knack for combining dancehall reggae with hardcore punk, the music can be nervy and invigorating, but the group's joyous blend of cultures gets nervy on the lyrical level, particularly on the controversial "Date Rape."

    Doesn't Get Better Than This

    This CD has spun more than any other in my collection. If you don't have it, get it. If you can't afford it, steal it.

    Sublime Is The Greatest Band od The 20th Century

    Every song on this album is a classic. 40 oz. To Freedom, probley one of Sublime's greatest works, simply kicks...All the songs on this album especially We're Only Gonna Die For Our Own Ignorance ,a song by Greg Graffin the singer for Bad Religion, has awesome distortion guitar with a great reggae bass.40 Oz. To Freedom the title song has a great vocals and a musical like feel to it.Waiting For my Ruca a vocally driven song has a low bass line and some cool drums.Smoke Two Joints a reggae classic starts with a clip fom an old movie then in comes the bass with the guitar. Bradley sings all of his vocals with amazing clarity. But the coolest song would probley be Date Rape awesome bass bass,trumpets and a cool reggae pattern. KRS One has dubs at perfect times and amazing acoustic guitar.

    Best Sublime Album by far

    Well, if you are new to Sublime, you probably got a newer album. If you're looking for a second, I highly recomend this one. If you havn't gotten an abum yet, this should be your first.

    Actually ten stars

    This is possibly the best album Sublime has produced. There isn't a bad song on this record, not to mention, the more you listen to it, the better it gets. Whether you are a raggae, ska, or punk fan, you will love this Cd, guarenteed.

    Beach Music for American Suburbia

    From the first drum beat on ''Ramona'' to the ending credits, Sublime cut this album with no definite audience in mind. Their fusion of reggae, rock and punk reaches far outside and in between genres of music. The lyrics range from social commentary to social farce, providing entertainment and brain food at the same time. ''40 oz to freedom'' mixes laid-back, California style reggae beats with thrashing punk ballads to produce a classic CD that is a must have for any collection. This is the kind of music that oldies stations will be playing twenty years from now.
