  • 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.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (12/19/97, pp.75-76) - "...Sublime's own evolution from beer-bash trio to sonic experimentalists is...evident. By the end of this chronologically sequenced set, they're mixing up Peter Tosh instrumentals, duetting with pal Gwen Stefani, and concocting soulful pop-reggae..."

Don't get me wrong, this is a great band and they have some awesome songs, but this album is purely a cash generator by the record company to milk out revenue from fans after Brad Nowell (the lead singer's death). Most of the songs can either be found on the band's other albums or are previously unreleased b-sides or remixes which weren't really intended to see the light of day. The album still has its moments, such as the 'Get Out Remix' and the track 'Superstar Punani'. Only buy this if you are interested in purchasing the whole Sublime collection.
