Look at All the Love We Found: A Tribute to Sublime (Cornerstone R.A.S.)

Telling Sublime fans to not buy Look at All the Love We Found is an exercise in futility. Doesn't matter if the tribute album is a bottom-scraping jumble of cover songs; fans would certainly light up a joint in response and express their love for Bradley Nowell fo' evah, brah. Look at All the Love, whose proceeds benefit Carlos Santana's Milagro Foundation, pulls together a surprising list of acts for a tribute that arrives nearly a decade late. The biggest draw is No Doubt's take on "D.J.s," but Gwen fans will be sad to find it's a sloppy live version that leaked years ago on Napster. Meanwhile, Jack Johnson and The Greyboy Allstars perform covers that sound nothing like Sublime, and, surprisingly, that's why they flop. Sublime songs were never much more than a reason to pass the Dutchie, after all, and the most fitting tracks on the album are the Pennywise, Avail and Fishbone covers that stick closely to the originals. If you really have a Sublime jones, listen to the indie-twang version of "Garden Grove" by Camper Van Beethoven. Otherwise, just smoke one and listen to the old albums. You won't notice the difference, anyway.
