Synopsis

Amazon.com
On their sophomore outing, the Long Beach Dub Allstars display accomplished musicianship and stoned enthusiasm as they create a unique blend of southern California reggae, dub, and punk rock. Rising from the ashes of the now-defunct Sublime, bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh lead this seven-piece groove ensemble with resolute determination. Featuring the good-time vocals of Opie Ortiz as well as an array of keyboards, turntables, saxophone, and percussion, the Allstars shift from traditional reggae to hard-edged ska-punk with graceful abandon. Including an appearance by reggae singer Barrington Levy on the Sublime cover "Saw Red" as well as cameos by rasta-punk hero H.R. and Jamaican toastmaster Tippa Irie, Right Back is an enjoyable excursion into American roots-rock-reggae. --Mitch Myers

CD Reviews

LBDA with impressive freshman effort
josh | Connecticut, formally Alaska | 12/13/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I first picked up this album, I figured it was gonna pretty much suck. Being a die-hard Sublime fan, I felt obligated to buy it and at least give it a try. Suffice to say, I was blown away and completley laid out. LBDAS has created their own style of reggae music on this album, while keeping it real with sublime-like beats. I enjoy Trailer-ras, kick down, Sensi, and Rosarito to name a few but my favorite song on this album is My Own Life. Opie can sing! Who knew? Any Sublime fan should enjoy this album, if you don't, well then maybe you weren't a sublime fan to begin with? R.I.P. BRADLEY NOWELL"

"ok, for all you people saying that it sucks cuz its not sublime and bla bla bla...well. hm, maybe thats why they changed their damn name. if they were trying to make the same music as they did when they were sublime they would have kept the name. but they didnt cuz brad is gone, yeah that sucks, yes he was awesome but the rest of the homies gotta make a living so they kept goin on doin what they rock at doing. this cd is awesome, as is their next cd, buy that one too damn it."
Moving on

"the band that was sublime is no more. these cats need to stop expecting long beach to be sublime- which is utterly hopeless. it is just different with brad gone. as much as we all miss him and wish he were here creating wonderful music, his passing must be accepted. long beach, as far as i know, doesn't claim to be sublime. it's evident in their music. they have progressed and really are still an excellent group. you can't hold them responsible for brad or hold them to that musical style. you can still feel a little of the old sublime with long beach, but they obviously will never be the same. well, enough about the past...right back is a really solid album. i really enjoy this album for what it is as any one must do. you will not like it if you can't accept that it's a new band, so be open minded. A must have for any collection and i find it to be extrordinarily good in the summer time"
