Everything Under the Sun

Everything Under the Sun is a 2006 box set of rarities from the band Sublime. It is composed in large part of tracks that can be found on previously released bootleg albums. The collection features material from throughout the band's career, from their earliest demos to other rare recordings, mostly live performances, which never saw release.[1] A DVD is also included and features videos of the band's most well-known songs as well as unreleased tracks.[2] The box set peaked at number 97 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in December 2006.


Even after the mid-2006 double-disc deluxe reissue of Sublime, the band's eponymous album originally released in 1996, a wealth of unreleased material remained. Fans created an online petition asking for the release of a box set of rarities.[1] In November 2006, Everything Under the Sun was released. It contains three discs and consists of 60 demos, live tracks, and alternate takes, along with a DVD of videos and live performances. The set includes a version of "Doin' Time" featuring Snoop Dogg and an appearance by Gwen Stefani on "Saw Red".[3]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic wrote that Everything Under the Sun contains "a few mild revelations -- on the earliest recordings, their debt to '80s ska revival bands like the English Beat is clearer than ever, for instance -- but the primary purpose of this is as a clearing-house for rarities that have been circulating on bootleg networks". He added that the box set "not only does its job quite well, but it also does make a case that as a live outfit, Sublime had a muscular musicality and surprisingly fluidity that never quite translated in the studio as well as it did on the stage."[1] In a Punknews.org review, John Gentile said that "newcomers might be overwhelmed at these recordings, but fans will find them to contain some of Sublime's loosest, finest recordings. Gentile complimented the selection of previously unreleased cover songs as a high point on the box set.[2] Jeff Vrabel of Billboard remarked that the collection's songs "range from the interestingly raw to the unlistenable, especially when the band trades its slow-rolling, dub-style vibe for stabs at lo-fi punk."[4] An article in the December 2006 issue of Spin said the box set is "as close as Bradley Nowell cultists will ever get to a new Sublime release."[3]
