Label: Fueled By Ramen
After an unsavory legal battle pitting surviving members against the estate of fallen lead singer Bradley Nowell, a Los Angeles judge ordered the partially reunited band to soldier on under the moniker Sublime With Rome. Yours Truly, their first album with new frontman Rome Ramirez, is a total mishmash. The group splits time between SoCal skacore ("Paper Cuts"), suburban dancehall ("Lovers Rock") and radio-tailored beach pop ("PCH"). Despite its stab at covering so much ground, Yours Truly sounds more or less like a Sublime album and should please fans who are capable of embracing Ramirez.
