AllMusic Review by

Apparently this EP was recorded before Sublime lost their singer to heroin and before Wesley Willis had a schizophrenic attack that scared away his Fiasco. Punk rock gossip aside, Sublime remain with an annoying ska-punk outfit that has the craftsmanship of a high school garage band that changed their sound immediately after hearing Operation Ivy's Energy album. On the flip is Wesley Willis, who stopped being funny about 20 albums ago. Even with The Fiasco, the humor is stale as Willis is backed up by a group of guys who provide their best Red Hot Chilly Peppers imitation. This would be thrown directly into a quarter bin if Sublime wasn't a one hit wonder or if a small handful of people didn't get Wesley Willis. Sometimes, there's no justice in this world.
