Album Review

Originally issued in 1998, this is the San Diego reggae/punk band's sophomore effort; the 2008 reissue includes the group's eponymous debut as a bonus disc. To say that The Longest Barrel Ride finds Slightly Stoopid maturing would be something of an exaggeration, but their sound is tightening up a bit even if their lyrics remain firmly grounded in the SoCal punk/reggae verities: weed, surfing, the perfidy of cops, etc. Slightly Stoopid's most obvious stylistic referent is Sublime, the band to whose Skunk imprint they were signed while still in high school. And high school seems to be hanging on: songs like "I'm So Stoned," "Johnny Law," and "Running Away" are almost defiantly adolescent, and that's not always a bad thing. The headlong hardcore shred of "Running Away" and "Johnny Law" is actually more expert and more musically convincing than the rather stiff reggae exercises "Struggler" and "Castles of Sand"; ska-core romps like "Living Dread" are better still. This reissue appends some acoustic demos as a hidden track at the end. (There is a similar addendum at the end of the bonus disc version of the band's debut album.)

Customer Reviews

What a long barrel ride it's been

Easy 5 stars. I loved this release from way back when it came out and it's still my favorite album these guys have put out. I'm glad to see Itunes finally put it on here!

Slightly Stoopid = Great Music

I can't believe it's been 10 years since this CD came out! Slightly Stoopid has grown so much since their younger days. I love this CD, and i'm glad they still play songs from it at their shows. They finally played castles made of sand at their last show for the encore!!

about time itunes

A perfect blend of surfpunk and reggae, I appreciate the bands newer stuff but this is by far my favorite album. I can practicly smell the ocean air everytime i play it. for all you strictly reggae guys a little punk never hurt anybody
