Editorial Review

Ska music has been deeply ingrained in the punk rock culture since the Clash adopted their rude boy stance near the end of the British punk invasion and the 2-Tone label put ska on the map. Suddenly, punks stopped kicking the crap out of each other long enough to dance. The debut release by Orange County, California's Sublime is a positively infectious record that marries varied styles of dub, reggae, rap, sampling, scratching, and badass dancehall ska with old-school punk overtones. Musicianship on this record is exceptionally tight, featuring Brad Nowell's innovative guitar work and bright, soulful voice.Packed with 40 oz. of rock (21 tracks) including the ultimate pot-smoking anthem "Smoke Two Joints" and the novelty hit "Date Rape." --Gail Worley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
Sublime is one of the few bands that is (was) able to break down the barriers between genres and reach people that less diverse artists will never be able to. If this CD is not in your collection, you are missing out!

4-0 out of 5 stars an original piece
sublime's debut. all good songs, the only problems isthat a lot of the drums and guitar sound the same. but it's still worth buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Appealing Album for most people
This is a good, upbeat album that defines a good genre. This in my opinion, is the band's best album, although the Self-Titled was also very good.

There are great melodies on this CD. Although these melodies are relatively simple and not complex, they are very enjoyable to the ear. Sublime has a really positive feel to it, and this album will leave you satisfied.

There are only a few songs on the album which resemble "Punk-Rock", as the majority are ska-like reggae music. It's easily recognizable that Brad Nowell was a good vocalist with talent. It's pretty easy to play these songs if you can play the guitar, but its not the complexity that makes the CD genius, it's the fact that the band was actually able to come up with the melodies that sound really good.

There's also humour in a lot of the lyrics which adds a good element to the music. It's always funny to hear Brad talking about stuff like encounters with the police, and getting high/drunk. The album flows really well, and you probably won't be dissapointed by any song. The album is appealing overall.
That's what made it a hit and in my opinion, a classic.

Editorial Review

Marilyn Manson started out as a depraved, marginally talented group of freaks that played a caustic but undeveloped brand of metallic industrial noise. Then Trent Reznor stepped into the studio for seven months with the band, and Manson emerged with the most intense, visceral, mechanical metal album since The Downward Spiral. Antichrist Superstar is a horror-house of grisly atrocities that stains as indelibly as a bathful of warm blood. Brooding rhythms collide with corrosive samples and buzzsaw guitar riffs, while vocalist Marilyn croons irresistible melodies in the voice of a vagrant regurgitating broken light-bulb shards. Essential listening, regardless of how much input Reznor had.--Jon Wiederhorn ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great cd...but i hav another issue
This review is just to say something. has anyone else noticed that stupid idiot reviewer 'Himo pohonen' or sum rubbish who has been goin round calling all the music cds he hates 'pieces of s**t' and not justifying any reasons at all - just for the sake of bein an IDIOT. i must have looked up at least 10 of my favourite cd's in the last week and his same thing is there every time. marilyn manson is my favourite band and hes comin on complainin about jesus and religion and NOBODY CARES! this is reviewing the cd not a church...go pray on it. i am not a goth myself but this is not the place for this. i hope other people have seen what i mean with this guy...dont listen to his reviews if you're hoping for a reason to buy a cd.

1-0 out of 5 stars This Album Is Not Truly Dark Or Satanic, It Is Just Stupid!!
Marilyn Manson had been credited for being the most vile, evil, and disgusting person on the planet since the early 90's. Manson is just a dork that could never get attention, so he attempted to become the biggest freak. From what I know about mainstream "dark" music, this is probably one of it's most famous albums. This album is just a poser with his poser band behind him, creating music that shocked people (I don't know why, it is about as dark as Britney Spears). For true dark music, old school black metal defines it. Mayhem, Darkthrone, and Emperor are all black metal groups that make Manson look like a Christian both musically and lyrically. Manson never did anything that evil, he just did stupid props that were more "perverted" than evil. Black metal does truly evil things such as church burnings, murder, cannibalism, and occult related activity-Manson never did anything like that! So forget Manson's stupid poser goth rock, get in touch with the black metal scene for truly evil music and lifestyles.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stu*** Lyrics!
This is just piece of sh**! Marilyn Manson makes bad music--- Trust Jesus Christ today...only he can save you from the lake of fire...He loves you more than you can imagine...no matter what you have done...just accept His love! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Sophomoric but occasionally amusing, the Bloodhound Gang's third outing serves up a dash of Cake, a sprinkling of Blink 182, and heavy doses of metal, hip-hop, and techno. And that's not even mentioning the Pink Floyd rip and Falco sample! Underneath the juvenile, jokey lyrics ("It's hard to rhyme a word like vagina") and cheap chortles (the faux-country "A Lap Dance Is So Much Better When the Stripper Is Crying" being one prime example) are a few memorable melodies. "The Bad Touch" is a catchy, sample-heavy, danceable sex song that name-checks numerous pop-culture touchstones, from Waffle House to the Discovery Channel. Metallica and Frankie Goes to Hollywood samples meld in the rap-metal "Mope." An ode to adult film actress Chasey Lain is yet another perverse novelty entry on this schtick-a-song offering. Yes, there are some guilty chuckles to be found here, but ultimately this 18-track outing is only truly titillating if you're 12--or act like you are. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars The Bad Touch is funny as always, nothing else delivers
The Bloodhound Gang became immensely with their outrageous yet funny single "The Bad Touch" and have since released a few CD's.Outside of this one hit wonder that is good for a laugh if you listen to it every once in a while, the band is an absolute joke (no pun intended).I give them an extra star because there are some people who remained big and can't even produce a mildly interesting song, but regardless the only song worth a gander is The Bad Touch.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lewd...crude...rude...hilarious
Bloodhound Gang mix rock and rap on this CD with outrageous lyrics that are the most surreal I've heard since Beck (a white-trash version of him anyway). This is definitely not one for the lyrically squeamish. During the course of the CD they manage to make reference to bestiality ("I Hope You Die"), drugs ("Mope"), oral sex ("Yummy Down on This"), finding words that rhyme with portions of female anatomy ("Three Point One Four"), cross-dressing ("A Lap Dance is So Much Better when the Stripper is Crying") and a blasphemous song with the same theme as the movie "Bruce Almighty" including the phrase "But would I be a good Messiah with my low self-esteem?/If I don't believe in myself would that be blasphemy?". Add in to that a really great use of samples and cameos including porn star Chasey Lain, Homer Simpson, Falco and Pac-Man and you have an album that's a lot of fun to listen to even if it doesn't tax the gray matter a whole lot (other than to chase down the samples).

HIGHLIGHTS:
"I Hope You Die" is probably one of the best revenge fantasies since Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue". Frankie Goes to Hollywood has never sounded as tough as they do on the sample in "Mope". "Ballad of Chasey Lain" is a funny take on the sort of sad character who believes they have a shot with porn actresses. "The Bad Touch" was a dancy, clever ode to 'the nasty'. An unexpected twist comes with "Along Comes Mary", a punked-up cover of the 60s tune from The Association.

LOWS:
I could really have done without "That Cough Came with a Prize" or "This is Stupid" (opera singers made to sing a ridiculous lyric..which isn't even 'stupid funny'...it's just dumb).

BOTTOM LINE:
Despite the fact that this is the sound your kids probably like, you DON'T want to get this for them. It deserves every bit of the explicit sticker...and then some. Unlike some of Blink 182's moments of toilet humour, Jimmy Pop and company pair it with wit making it one that wears fairly well over the years even if it's not a "classic" or even one you'll have in your player on a weekly basis. You either love this or hate it..borrow it from someone first. As for this 34 year old guy, I love it. For extra hijinks, visit the Website at http://www.bloodhoundgang.com

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the better CDs i have listened to
Its a genious.Lupus Thunder on guitar, Evil Jared Hasselhoff on bass, DJ Q Ball on the turntable, Willie the New Guy on drums, Jimmy Pop with vocals(correct me if Im wrong on any of this). Put it together and you have a pretty bada** band. Horray for Boobies is one of those CDs you cant live without.It makes you look good if you have it.You might want to wear one around your neck or something.Jimmy Pop's lyrics are undeniably genious.Lupus has good riffs but mainly consists of power chords and such, although it still sounds great.Evil Jared plays great bass.Anyway, the CD is for those who want some allout punk/rap/rock/whatever music.Its a must ...

Editorial Review

Reunited with producer Rick Rubin and guitarist John Frusciante (both of whom were on board for the 1991's breakthrough Blood Sugar Sex Magik), the Chili Peppers waste no time in burying their last effort, the so-so One Hot Minute. Californication's kickoff cut, "Around the World," swaggers around the room, reacquainting itself with old fans and welcoming new ones. Fuzzy Hendrix vibes and popcorn bass lines still rule the roost, along with a heaping helping of disco magic and some unexpected twists. Ten years ago, Anthony Kiedis and company wouldn't have been comfortable doing revamped new wave ("Parallel Universe") or unpretentious ballads (the acoustic "Road Trippin'"), but such material fits Californication's extra-wide canvas. Except for a few meandering numbers that could have been excised, the Red Hot Chili Peppers succeed and regain their footing on the mountain of adrenalized funk. --Jason Josephes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Band
I love the chili peppers because they are just the best you cant explain.(...)

5-0 out of 5 stars there is so much to get out of this cd
probably the songs on here are the most beautiful songs they ever made.touching, arranged perfectly, with elements of funk and soul only RHCP could have crafted.This album was my introduction to the band, and I recommend it wholeheartedly for new fans.There is no way in the world that you cannot enjoy all the tracks here, they are just put together so well.This album made them really popular with teens today, more than any other album of theirs.just get it, its absolutely wonderful music.

5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing album from an amazing band

When i went to see The Red Hot Chili Peppers in london last summer their set consisted mostly of californication tracks,which was great because i have always thought of californication as a really summery jump about album partly due to its number of upbeat songs (and hot front cover!).The track that stands out for me from this album will always be californication but there are some real other quality songs and each one goes in a different direction.There are quieter tunes such as this velvet glove and porcelain and faster paced tracks such as right on time and paralell universe.Alot of the tunes are quite experimental for the chili peppers as soem are quite unlike the bands previous material.The album has a good balance of fire fuelled tracks and moving mellow ones.
Californication is a must because the chili peppers,such talented and experienced musicians who are really at one with what they do,make its catchy guitar riffs and feel good beats cant help but work their way into your head!Defnitly my faviroute and i hope it becomes your too!

Editorial Review

Maybe hanging out with Jello Biafra put the fun-loving spring in Offspring's step. Or perhaps it was just the royalty checks, hot babes, and fast cars. Whatever the case, the band's fourth record, Americana, is its most lively offering to date, replacing angst and rage with energy and sarcasm. The novelty single "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)" matches infectious riffing and shout-along vocals with fly-girl chants of "Give it to me, baby" and lyrics about wannabe scenesters; and a storming punk-rock version of Morris Albert's "Feelings" sees the band hitting a new level of, er, (in)sensitivity. Elsewhere, the humor is slightly more subtle; "She's Got Issues" cops a new-wave guitar line from the Cars songbook, "The Kids Aren't Alright" opens like an Iron Maiden anthem, and "Why Don't You Get a Job?" is a blatant reggae-style spoof of the Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." Musically, Americana offers no real revelations, but the songs are a bit craftier and more diverse than the rest of the Offspring oeuvre, veering haphazardly between anthemic punk metal, blistering hardcore, and near-psychedelic experimentation. --Jon Wiederhorn ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best CD Ever
This CD is probably one of the best I've heard every song is excellent and is done in a way to really get you excited I highly recommend this to anyone one who are fans of punk rock. If you buy it you'll love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars I have issues with this album.
I am not really all that fond of music that came out in 1998, and this is one of the albums that I feel is why I'm so down on the music of that particular year. Mind you in 1998 I was in a real funk anyway, but the music made it worse. To me this was a real disappointment as far as albums go. "Pretty Fly" sounds like a rewrite of "Come Out And Play", and not as good sounding either. "Why Don't You Get A Job?" doesn't make me think of sandy gold beaches in the Caribbean it makes me think why are these people writing about this? Has rock and roll gotten that dead that we can't think of anything else to write about? For the most part this album is horrible with only one song that I can say I can halfway tolerate, and that was "The Kids Are Not Alright." It put me back in the frame of mind I was in back in 1998, and that was one of angst and depression. I was 30, and still single, and hating it every moment I saw a couple together, and being all lovey dovey. It made me remember all the anger I felt, and to a certain extent still do. However, with all things I have to go beyond this stage as I have felt stagnated, and down on things. I don't know what it will take maybe a different attitude towards people, or hopefully someone will take the time to see who I really am. I also know one thing now that I have gotten this out of my system as this was one of the things that have bothered me STAY AWAY FROM THIS ALBUM!!!!!!! It's gaurunteed to get you down on life, and make you want to kill yourself. Not so much the words, but the music.

4-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, yet lacking.
!Heather's Teenage Son!

Being a die-hard Offspring fan, I of course enjoyed this album alot.But, it's definately not them at their best.Their best albums are definately Ixnay and Conspiracy of One, while this is their worst...but I'm giving it 4 stars.So, that should tell you how purely awesome this band is.The track "Walla Walla" is fast and fun and I love listening to it over and over again, so I would suggest you listen to that one."She's Got Issues" is great and catchy, and my favorite track on this CD."Pretty Fly" is entertaining, also along with their other single off this album "Why Don't You Get A Job".But, there is one song on here called "Have You Ever".It sounds so much like "Dirty Magic" from the album Ignition it's not even funny.So, skip that one unless you want to hear "Dirty Magic" only faster.

So, overall this album entertains but their lyrics are not as meaningful as on their other CDs.Get this one if, like me, you absolutely love this band. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The astonishingly and presumably deliberately inept artwork of this debut from Californian skate punks OPM helps create a carefully contrived image of a bunch of lads intent on loafing about, doing as little as possible. The threesome's modus operandi--which involves sun, sex, tattoos, getting stoned, and traveling the streets on four small wheels--is cemented by the opening tracks "Stash Up" (a paean to smoking grass and not giving a flying one for anything) and "Heaven Is a Halfpipe" (a surprisingly catchy sing-along about the joys of skateboarding). Menace to Sobriety's boisterous, good-time feel sprawls across its 15 tracks like a teenager on a particularly comfortable sofa, its bleach-top college-rock roots (Blink 182, Sugar Ray) regularly spiced up by Latino piano and horns, ska rhythms, hip-hop textures, and noisy raps. --Mike Pattenden ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best of Genre
I'm 51 years old, and can't quite bring myself to love the rap genre, the only thing my son listens to.OPM is quite the refreshing change;Real drums playing great grooves.Happy songs, even if they, like their brethren, Kottonmouth kings, focus a bit much on drugs and alcohol, it is still lyrics that are friendlier than run of the mill hood rap.My favs on this CD are Capitan and Dealer man.All the others are good too.I'm hoping to work up a couple of these in my classic rock band, I know it will get em dancin'!

1-0 out of 5 stars kinda crappy
this cd is probably the worst cd of its genre i hated it. it sounded like the were tryin to hard to be original and have no talent

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing
I heard Heaven Is A Halfpipe on the radio one night and I thought it was pretty good. After that I heard a few more of OPM song's on the radio including Stash Up and El Capitan so I thought about buying their album. And I am extremly happy I did!
I'll do a track-by-track review

1.Stash Up
A song about smoking weed and not giving a f**k about anybody.Nice guitar riff with ska/punk feel but hearing "I don't give a F**k" gets tired.Good song if your p***sed off with someone 8/10 2:58

2.Interlude-Punnany
A really weird electronica song(if you listen to the rest of the album then you'll you will think it's weird) but still fun 7.5/10 0:33

3.Heaven Is A Halfpipe
The essential anthem, perfect for any party and one of the catchiest songs ever. A mixture of hip-hop and alternative that works out very well 11/10 4:18

4.El Capitan
Another very catchy song that's good for a party.Not good,not bad. 7.5/10 3:22

5.Undercover Freak
A okay song with a very strong reggae feel.Not all that good 6/10 3:47

6.Brighter Side
A very pop/rocky song that will cheer up when your down and out
9/10 3:30

7.Better Daze
One of the best song on the album talking about money being the energy source for everything and making the world go around. Sounds alot Everlast's "What It's Like" except better
11/10 3:58

8.Trucha
Another very weird song sung in Spanish or something like that(i don't know). This song also has a very strong reggae feel.Okay not great
6/10 4:01

9.Dealerman
A pretty good song ruled by a guitar talking about a guy who isn't appreciated by anyone but gets along with his dealerman well.A good song to listen to if you feel the world hates you
8/10 3:40

10.Reality Check
A very good song with a very nice r&b/hip-hop feel that would be good for a pool party
10/10 3:57

11.Interlude-Rage Against The Coke Machine
One of the funniest things i've ever heard, it's a little skit about a guy trying to get a Coke but failing to so he ends up smashing the living s**t out of the vending machine.if you listen to this and don't laugh, you must be dead!! 11/10 1:04

12.Unda
An very catchy okay song with ska/punk feel to it.Not bad, not bad at all 7.5/10 2:50

13.Interlude-15 Minutes
One of the most fast-paced song i've ever heard and more addictive than herion, this is pretty good
9/10 0:45

14.Fish Out Of Water
A good song to listen to if you don't want to got to work/school.Extremly catchy with pop feel to it 8.5/10 3:32

15.Sound System
A catchy song which is 50/50 with me
6/10 3:46

My Top 5
Better Daze 11/10
Rage Against The Coke Machine 11/10
Heaven Is A Halfpipe 11/10
Reality Check 10/10
Brighter Side 9/10

An extraordinarly good album, this is one of the best albums ever made and the essential album for a party of any kind ... Read more
