Sublime was a diverse band to say the least. They used elements of punk, reggae, hip-hop, and ska to create their truly unique sound. This is evident on their 1992 debut 40 Oz. to Freedom. While using the standard instruments you would think of in a band (guitar, bass, drums), Sublime incorporates many different instruments into the album, such as samplers, turntables, and a large portion of the brass section. Hell, they even use a bong on the stoner anthem "Smoke Two Joints". That's creativity. With all of this variety, 40 Oz. will keep your interest through the 22-track journey. Whether it is a Sublime original or a cover of one of Sublime's many influences (Grateful Dead, Bad Religion, and many more), every song (well, except for Thanx, but that doesn't really count) is well executed. Although being early in Sublime's existence, this is a masterpiece. It's a shame that Sublime wasn't able to further their careers past the self-titled. The results could have been legendary. In conclusion, 40 Oz. is an album that can be enjoyed by pretty much anyone who enjoys music. There is something for nearly everyone to enjoy.
