A generation of teenagers is actively pissed off that Sublime's Brad Nowell overdosed after making only three albums — and for them, Slightly Stoopid, joined here by Sly & Robbie, Pepper and Half Pint, might be the next best thing. During the mid-'90s, Stoopid ones Miles Doughty and Kyle McDonald signed to Nowell's Skunk Records imprint and immediately began churning out recordings that drew on the same sort of modified reggae vibe that inspired Sublime. Granted, their work wasn't modified quite as much, and that remains true to this day. Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid, the band's latest disc, mates odds and sods recorded over the past decade-plus with a few new songs that sound an awful lot like what they've been doing all along. Nowell brought more personality to his work, but both Doughty and McDonald have survived in the music life much longer than he did. Maybe they're not so Stoopid after all.
