5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Album for New Fans June 14 2004
By eboe101
Format:Audio CD
311 is a great band that has put out 7 albums. The self-titled(Blue) album is not their best, nor is it their worst album. This was the first 311 cd I ever heard and it became responsible for my liking of the band. 3 years later, I have all of the albums but this one is still my favorite, even though it is not their most solid album. The cd gives first-time listeners a taste of 311, broadcasting their unique sounds. It also shows older fans who do not have the cd, a piece of 311's journey from music to evolver.
The reason this album should not be overlooked is because it allows people, such as myself, to get into 311. Grassroots is their best album, but its bad production and lack of catchiness make it harder for first-time listeners to get a feel for their music. I believe this because I recommended grassroots to two people and one liked it after repeated listens and the other listened to it once and tossed it.
Now I bet you are thinking to yourselves, if they did not like grassroots, then they should not listen to 311. Well, I don't know about you, but I can see how grasasroots can be inaccessible for many people to get into. This album gives them a taste of what 311 is about and shows varying types of styles while doing it. It also has excellent production and arguably their "tightest" album. Even though it has flaws( some of the lyrics seem too quickly implemented, Hive is the all-ime worst 311 song) it continues to be at the top of my list because it what introduced me to this great band.
When I think of 311, I think of this album because it is a definitive 311 album. Many people also feel that there is too much rap on this cd, but there is not a whole lot more than "grassroots.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really what I expected, but it's all good May 18 2004
By Sven_96
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I would like to point out that one of my least favorite styles of music is rap. I don't disrespect any artists in the genre, yeah, they've made something out of it. I just don't enjoy it as much as some people do. When I listened to 311, I was surprised to hear the pronounced rap influence in a lot of the songs. With that fact in mind, I enjoyed most of the slower, reggae/ska songs, such as All Mixed Up, Purpose, Don't Stay Home, and Sweet. But don't get me wrong, I liked more than that!
The hard rock songs on this album, thanks to SA, have rapping in them. Nick raps, too, but he grew out of that by From Chaos. Despite my dislike for rap, Down, one of 311's biggest hits, is a great song. The song, at first listen, doesn't seem like anything special, but then it's in your head all of a sudden. At least a minute of this song is guitar playing, but it's all good. The song injected with the most rap is definitely Hive. The rhymes made me laugh ("You're all up in the mix like f***in' Betty Crocker") and the song was surprisingly catchy. However, my favorite hard rock/rap songs were Misdirected Hostility and DLMD.
At the end of the short album, I was a little disappointed. I know that this album had the strongest rap influence of them all, but I still wanted more of the reggae/ska sound. I'm listening to a bunch more of their stuff on Napster, and I like what I'm hearing, hard rock sounds from Soundsystem, trippy beach sounds from Transistor, and pure amazingness from Grassroots. A.K.A. I'm buying them all. Rock on!

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome CD by an awesome band March 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
311 is in my opinion the overall most talented band on earth. 311 consists of Nick Hexum (vocals, plays 2nd guitar on some songs), Chad Sexton (one of the world's best drummers), SA (the first and best DJ in a rock band, and he also does awesome vocals, trading off with Nick in most songs), P-Nut (one of the best bass players in any rock band ever - Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers listens to him for inspiration), Tim Mahoney (fantastic guitarist, is unlimited in the styles he can play). Both Nick and SA can rap better than I've ever heard, and they can both sing beautiful melodies. When they harmonize there is a sense that they were meant to sing together - their voices match up perfectly.
On this album, their third major label release, they decided to keep it simple and straight-forward with their sound. Tim only used his guitar (a PRS), octave pedal (which he uses on nearly every song), and amp (Mesa Boogie) and no other effects or anything. When the band followed this album up with Transistor it threw a lot of people off because Transistor has a totally different sound. In my opinion Transistor is the best album anyone has ever made, although Evolver may be tied.
Back to the album I'm reviewing - it is self-titled, and often called 'The Blue Album' by the band and fans. Here is a description of each song as best as I can give:
(1) Down - This song rocks so hard it is unbelievable. This is the song that was released as a single and made it to #1 on the charts and is the only 311 song a lot of people know. Characteristic positive message with fierce guitar riffs and rapping by SA and a great catchy chorus sung by Nick.
(2) Random - Starts with a drum beat only Chad would play, the chorus is interesting because it has Nick singing with SA rapping at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Piece Of Essential 311
Simply put, this album is one that put 311 on the map for many in 1996, a year after it was released, when the singles "Down" and "All Mixed Up" went into heavy rotation. Read more
