Overview

Featuring the rhythm section of the late, great Sublime, the Long Beach Dub Allstars are a predictably freewheeling band of ganja-soaked, reggae-funk-punk dabblers with enough soul and good vibes to put their shtick over the top. Opening with a Clash-style dub-rock fusion, "Righteous Dub," and quickly moving on to sunny hip-hop-flavored pop on "My Own Life" and "Like A Dog," RIGHT BACK is a bubbly party record that could be a honky-reggae corollary to Len's PC rap-rock. Singer Opie Oritz hasn't quite found the loose-limbed beachcomber flow that made Sublime's Brad Nowell an alt-God (see the weak-willed tribute, "Fugazi"), but these jammy tracks aren't about words and tunes so much as spacious, sunny grooves. And groove-out they do.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Kurutz
Everything about this album boils down to expectations. Released by the remaining members of Sublime, with ample help from friends and guest musicians, Right Back is a loose collection of jams, half-realized songs, and silly, in your face attitude. Getting back to expectations -- if you're looking for the kind of clever lyrics and ultra catchy melodies that Sublime frontman Brad Nowell was known for you're going to be deeply disappointed. However, even though the pop sheen is gone, the SoCal loose vibes and attitude remain throughout the album, aided by guest singers like Bad Brains' HR and dancehall star Barrington Levy.

My freinds and I are probably the biggest Sublime fans alive, we even had a band back in L.A. playing "Sublime" style. Anyway, This album is a great intro to the newly formed Long Beach Dub Allstars, Bud and Eric are still rockin the scene, and I think Opie sounds great on the mic, and Ras brings his own style to the table. So if you liked Sublime, I think you'll like this album too!

It's like they say on "DJ's", "No matter where you go, this music's gonna play!" I, also being in a band, have probably seen over hundreds of bands play live, none even come close to them. You can go out and buy ska, punk and reggae cd's from any band, but the fact is you'll never find a band out there better than Sublime, and the Long Beach Dub Allstars, not only their great song writing, but they also perfect this genre of music. Eric wilson's bone chilling bass lines will have you bobbing your head long after the songs are finished. Go check out their second cd also!
