Sublime - Self Titled

Chalk up yet another album in which I initially picked it up just due to one song. When 'What I Got' dropped - this seemed like a must have. Typically, it seems whenever I buy something just based on one track, I almost always get the quickest feeling of buyers remorse possible. But once in a very long while, it works the other way. Book this record as one of those instances. After well over a decade of listening to this, What I Got isn't going to make my Top 3 list. There are just too many other good tracks on here that I listen to way more often. Obviously Sublime isn't making more tuneage, but I feel this is the standard for any record by them. And again, another '90s band that had a totally different sound than anything I had heard before. The guitar work, the lyrics, some use of horns in different songs - really catchy yet solid pieces of music history. If you haven't heard this one start to finish, do yourself a favor and slap yourself across the face, and then treat yourself to some gold.
