||This Train is Bound for Glory|
This is the most touching album I have ever heard. Knowing Brad's death, songs like "this train" and "pool shark" carry meloncholy and almost eerie feels to them.
By REDD (WI, USA)
||Dont get to excited.|
Only for the hardcore sublime fans... horrible sound quality on almost all of the songs. I love sublime but was not impressed with this CD.

||the real Brad|
Playing at a party with an acoustic shows Brad Nowell in a true environment. This cd and the live cd both have a special elemnt of being live and unpredictable.
By zola (Flint, MI, USA)
this CD is one of the best albums only if you really love sublime it shows brad doing what he loved best just rocking out talking with people having a good time he connects and shows his love for the music ya you can tell hes drunk on some of the songs but who cares its BRAD he can do whatever he wants because his voice is so hypnotizing it sounds good even when he forgets the words and starts singing different songs the band just goes along with it and the mistakes make the song sound just that much more personal if you just like the radio hits by sublime you wont like this album you should just buy their greatest hits but if you love them you will definately love this album and you should buy it and Live Stand By Your Van.

Americana CD (1998) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends album for sale This is an Enhanced audio CD, which contains regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
AMERICANA continues the contradiction fostered by the Offspring with IXNAY ON THE HOMBRE; that of an anarchistic punk band signing up with and using the resources of a mighty recording industry monolith. Diatribes aside, these southern California punks have continued concocting breakneck-paced songs that combine intelligent lyrics with rapid-fire rhythms and shredding guitar.
Going beyond their punk credentials means the Offspring mix in a few curves that keep the listener guessing. "Why Don't You Get A Job" uses horns and a steel drum to underline misgivings about awarding alimony for either sex. "Pay the Man" uses Middle Eastern chord changes to achieve an Arabic feel that eventually gives way to a punkier arrangement. Even on"Feelings," the schmaltzy lounge lizard anthem, Dexter Holland's style of spitting out the words gives the slight number new life. The cleverly wrought "Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)" looks at white kids emulating an inner-city life style through the prism of daytime talk shows. Despite this experimentation, the Offspring cling to their punk roots with a steadfast determination that defines songs dealing with the pitfalls of growing up in the '90s ("The Kids Aren't Alright") and the emotional baggage brought into relationships ("She's Got Issues").
Recorded at Eldorado Recording Studio, Burbank, California.

|Sublime CD (1996) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends songs The popularity of ska bands like No Doubt and Goldfinger paved the way for what seemed to be inevitable success for Sublime. But lead singer Brad Nowell died of a heroin overdose in May 1996, two months before this major-label debut was released. SUBLIME reveals a talented act whose songs were a brilliant mix of punk, reggae, hip-hop and dub. Sublime's ability to jump genres is showcased within a few bars of "What I Got." Amidst whistling, scratching and a rhythm copped from the Beatles' "Lady Madonna," Nowell's vocals glide from spoken-word to a toasting vibe. Pop culture also provided a handy source, particularly in "Caress Me Down," where porn star Ron Jeremy and G.I. Joe are mentioned amid reggae rhythms and Spanish lyrics.
Although many of these songs have a fun, carefree aura, Sublime's darker side occasionally surfaces. The black humor of "April 29, 1992 (Miami)," which boasts of looting during the L.A. riots, gives way to the eerie foreshadowing of "Garden Grove," where in the middle of quirky samples and heavy reverb, Nowell casually sings of shooting up.

|40 Oz. to Freedom CD (1992) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends CD music 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." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Additional personnel includes: Adam (vocals, congas); Miguel (samples, guitar, vocals, piano, organ, sound effects).
Recorded at Mambo, Long Beach, California. Originally released on Skunk (001).
Sublime: Brad Nowell (vocals, guitar, percussion, samples, bass, congas); Eric Wilson (bass, organ, percussion, vocals, congas); Bud (drums, samples).
|Robbin' the Hood CD (1994) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends buy CD music Pieced together rather quickly, Robbin' the Hood wasn't really intended to be the follow-up to Sublime's debut, 40 Oz. to Freedom, but what is shocking is how much better the record is than its predecessor. Boasting a wider range of influences -- including elements of reggae and old-school hip-hop -- the record is a loose, infectious blend of styles that rides along on its own sense of energy. Brad Nowell's songwriting might still be at a rudimentary level, but the group sounds more muscular and musical than before, demonstrating that the breakthrough of its sole major-label record, Sublime, wasn't an accident. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

|Second Hand Smoke CD (1997) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends songs SECONDHAND SMOKE is a collection of previously unreleased tracks along with alternate and dub takes of currently available material. This limited edition release of SECOND HAND SMOKE is packaged with a t-shirt.
It is often said that the quickest way for an artist to become famous is to die. The obvious flip-side of this is that the artist doesn't get to enjoy the fruits of his labors. On SECOND-HAND SMOKE, the surviving Sublime members and long-time collaborator Miguel gather together some of their earliest demos along with more recent out-takes in a final tribute to their late leader, drug casualty Brad Nowell.
Comparing the earliest work on this release to the later hits, it's striking how far Nowell's songwriting had progressed. The band was just beginning to synthesize its diverse influences into something that was instantly recognizable as Sublime. The early songs range from the straight pop of "New Realization" to reggae ("Don't Push") to the blend of ska and hip hop that was their signature ("Garbage Grove"). On "April 29th 1992 (Leary)," Nowell explores the real motivation behind the LA riots from the partly-humorous, partly-serious point-of-view that would characterize the bulk of his work. One can only wonder how far Nowell would have taken his music had he not passed away just as he was entering his prime.

|Stand by Your Van CD (1998) Top Seller
Acoustic: Bradley Nowell & Friends album for sale Recorded live in various clubs before the band had their major breakthrough, STAND BY YOUR VAN is a collection of early songs unfamiliar to most novice fans of Sublime. What you hear is the good-spirited party-vibe of Brad Nowell before his untimely death. On the verge of greatness at the time of these recordings, Nowell and the band run through 16 songs including a track that pays homage to hip-hop legend KRS-One.
By combining ska, punk, reggae, hip-hop and dub, Sublime would have Rastas grooving, southern California punks moshing and beach bunnies soaking it up all at the same time. The vibe on all of these recordings reflects the love, respect and warmth that each and every Sublime show possessed. Tracks were recorded at Kommotion (San Fransisco), The Palace (Hollywood), House of Blues (Hollywood) and the WARPED Tour (Asbury Park, NJ) from September 1994 to April 1996. Check out the non-stop party with songs like "New Thrash," "Greatest Hits" and "S.T.P."
