SublimeFor the chemical process, see sublimation.
Sublime is an early 1990s rock band from Long Beach, California, who played a mix of hip hop, surf rock, garage rock, and "skunk" ( a mix of ska and punk). Sublime consisted of three members Brad Nowell (vocals and guitar), Bud Gaugh (drummer) and Eric Wilson (Bass guitar).
Sadly, the band took a tragic turn with the death of Nowell from a heroin overdose in 1996--just four months before their hit self titled album was released.
In total they have released 4 albums:
-40 oz. to Freedom (1992)
-Robbin' the Hood (1994)
-Second-hand Smoke (1997)
The Sublime(from the Latin sublimis (exalted)), refers in aesthetics to the quality of transcendent greatness, whether physical, moral, intellectual or artistic. The term especially references a greatness with which nothing else can be compared and which is beyond all possibility of calculation or measurement.
Psychologically, the perception of the sublime results in a feeling of awe or helplessness.
The first study of the value of the sublime is the treatise ascribed to Longinus: On the Sublime. Edmund Burke and Immanuel Kant both investigated the subject (compare Burke’s Essay on the Sublime and Beautiful, 1756) and both distinguished the sublime from the beautiful. Later writers tend to include the sublime in the beautiful.
