    The Long Beach ska punks have a new singer, a more melodic mellow bounce--and a lot less edge. [22 Jul 2011, p.73]

    Yours Truly doesn't quite match the caliber of the albums in the Sublime discography, but it's a fairly enjoyable spin-off just the same.

    Overall, it’s a decent summer barbecue soundtrack, but hardly vintage Sublime.

    Sublime With Rome is its own creature, and Yours Truly is a very decent jam album.

    Yours Truly is based on the same assumption as Sublime With Rome, which is that fans will appreciate the superficial similarities to a band they once loved, and won't look close enough to notice the gaping holes.

    It'd be one thing if the new trio built on the band's legacy. Instead, Yours Truly regurgitates Sublime's 90s ska-punk blueprint and gussies it up with a new layer of radio-ready sheen.

    It's too forgettable to be offensive. [23 Nov 2013, p.53]

    This sloppy comeback attempt, though enjoyable at times, serves mostly as a tragic reminder that what was once a great thing, can never be again.
