This album is the essential Subilme album. Not only is it Bradley & Co. at their best but it shows the passion that Brad had for love, life, and music. You can feel what he feels when listening to the live renditions. It is just Brad stripped down to his soul. If I could only have one Sublime album, this would be it.
With a CD like this the inevitable question has to be, why? Why press into a CD a collection of songs containing mainly tracks recorded over a room full of people talking? It seems like Nowell is actually getting in the way of people's conversations in a bar and that for all they care the music is coming from a slightly harsh sounding Jukebox in the corner. Nobody appears to be even aware that he is even there.
The rest of the tracks are the type you would expect as fillers between actual songs on a decent album, here they are the album!
