Ska-punks Sublime went almost experimental with their second album Robbin’ The Hood, which was recorded to a 4-track machine at home, lending it a lo-fi feel. The band also quote, reference and sample a panoply of other artists from the reggae and rock worlds. Double LP, freshly remastered, on Universal.

It's easy to see why this album is either really well liked by fans or completely passed over by fans. It contains, with few exceptions, songs that don't quite fit into what most people see as the Sublime mould. The tracks are laid out in beautiful, and sensible, order with minimal breaks in between. To me, the whole album feels like a jam session recorded one night in a extremely entertaining, but chaotic, setting. It captures the crisp sounds of dubbed ska with a supporting cast of character voices in the background.
