Album Review

It is the seamless way the songs on the eponymously titled 311 combine the band's influences into a potent blend of rap, funk, and rock that renders this album a cut above those of their competitors. These riff-heavy and radio-ready songs are underscored by a tight drum sound (often with a piccolo snare), the scratching of turntables, and the crunch of heavy guitars: a formidable backdrop for this surprisingly melodic effort. The rhythms of reggae and ska percolate through this mix, and the harmonies of Nick Hexum and S.A. Martinez lend the band an edge not found in the majority of bands that feature rapping over rock beats.

Customer Reviews

311 best innovators

this is the best album by 311 combining elements of all genres of music with rock alternative, punk, rap, and reggae, their three best songs come from this album with "Down" being number 1 and "Don't Stay Home" at number 2 and finally "All Mixed Up" at three. Enjoy

Really?!?!?!?

I can't believe all of these bad reviews!! If you don't like it then why even get on here and write one. You aren't even writing a review..just dissing on something you don't like. Why waste your time...Anyway, this album is one of the best 311 has done!! Top 5 for sure. Favorite 3 songs on this album..1. Random 2. Misdirected Hostility 3. All Mixed Up.....

Umm what? Great Album.

311- Music, Excellent... 311-Grassroots, Excellent... 311-311 Great. If you dislike rap punk or alternative rock, dont buy a rap punk or alternative rock cd. Anyone who dislikes this cd dislikes the genre most likely. You should be a fan of the genre and give a review. Stop wasting everyones time rating it bad because you dislike this kind of music. I like all types of music including rap rock electronic classic rock and pretty much everything and this falls in between genres and defines a good blend. Great production and some loud lyrics, some smooth tracks too.
