Product Description

Amazon.ca

It takes some nerve nicking an album title from the Beatles, even in a slightly modified state. But since this Omaha, Nebraska band went through so many significant changes leading up to the release of its seventh studio album, at least it's a logical move. The aggressive Woody Woodpecker-style lyrical play and needling funk core of career lows, 1997's Transistor and 1999's Soundsystem, are toned down, replaced by a more sophisticated sound that stretches the group's well-trounced reggae-rap-rock template to include wisps of electronica and soul. The members of 311 still aspire to be half-as-clever as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but finally seem satisfied in their on skin on tracks such as "Creatures (For a While)" and the emotional "Beyond the Gray Sky." The psychedelic experiment "Seem Uncertain," meanwhile, merely lives up to its title. Producer Ron Saint Germain (Creed, Living Colour) has obviously taken significant strides in shaking the band up. This album points the way forward. --Aidin Vaziri

1.0 out of 5 stars Not The TRU Hip-Hop Ghetto Angst!! Oct. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Hey hustler's how are ya'll?? I love hip-hop and rap metal, and we all know their the most TRU musical form available to mankind's ear!! Well, I remember a long time ago, I loved their wonderful hit "Down" with its ill hip hop beatz, mad rhymin' and brutal guitar riffs!! Well I saw these 311 fellas had a new record out so I dopped some dollaz to pick it up. What a big mistake!! I liked these guys better when they was rippin' off the godz like Limp Bizit and Linkin Park, instead of doin' this weird tribal music meets reggae meets wimp rock mix they do here!! Go back to the hardcore ghetto angst of "Down" that we know you guys are capable of!! Don't wimp out now!! If you do like this album check out the new one from Joey Fatone and Justin Timberlake, they have a similar feel to this album!! But for TRU music, check into Limp Bizkit, linkin Park, Staind, Good Charlotte, Puddle Of Mudd, Blink 182, Seether, Trapt and that silly cowboy Toby Keith!! Peace out all...

4.0 out of 5 stars Evolver review July 15 2004
By Albert
Format:Audio CD
"Evolver" is a very, well, evolved sound for 311, and it's a great album, but not quite defined yet. However, it is a great basis for what can be an astounding new sound for this terrific band.
1.Creatures (For A While) - 5/5. Great rocker. Many changes, but all are catchy and goes back to 311's roots.
2.Reconsider Everything - 3.5/5. Good song, not one of the best on the cd, but not bad.
3.Crack the Code - 5/5. GREAT song. One of my personal favorite 311 songs. Great lyrics and awesome vocals from S.A., he shines on this one.
4.Same Mistake Twice - 3/5. Although I like it when they play live, it seems really misplaced on this cd, ok song though.
5.Beyond the Gray Sky - 4/5. Nice song, with great lyrics. Very chill and laid back with a nice guitar solo props to Tim.
6.Seems Uncertain - 4.5/5. Very nice, acousic mellow song, although something missing from making it a GREAT song.
7.Still Dreaming - 3/5. Doesn't fit well with the rest of the album, kinda feels like filler, but ok song
8.Give Me A Call - 4.5/5. I like this song a lot, one of the songs i look forward to hearing when listening to the CD.
9.Don't Dwell - 4/5. Good song, not great, but good.
10.Other Side Of Things - 5/5. AWESOME song. Very oldschool 311, but sounds just gets you pumped out, which 311 does perfectly
11.Sometimes Jacks Rule The Realm - 4.5/5. I've never heard a song quite like this from 311, but it works very well, I'd like to hear more songs like this by them.
So there you have it 45.5/55 (82.7%). A good 311, but not a great one. It is worth your money if you're a fan, go buy!

It has been one year (effective July 22nd) since 311 have released the 41-minute masterpiece "Evolver" in the United States. Officially, Nielsen Soundscan (tm) reports the album resides in the collections of just over 310 000 souls (a figure that squawks to the record companies the relative success of a record), still failing to score yet another Gold record for a band that currently owns six for its audio recordings.

However, as fans will point out, after a year in the happy clutches of dreamers, thinkers, and the like, Evolver continues to deliver a hit for the soul.
Opening the set are the addictive hooks and shifting time signitures of "Creatures (For A While)," a song that soared and faded fast in the hot August sun last year. I still get pumped to that song when biking to work; it is a arm-pumping shot of funk/rock-rap adrenaline that leaves you asking for an encore. The following track, "Reconsider Everything" is lead singer Nick Hexum's face-value, Orwell-recalling assessment of the demolition of a free-thought society. "Crack The Code" promptly shifts the aura to funk-reggae and exhibits SA Martinez's vocal versatility well in his trademark, spacey lyrical style. The bashing, pre-chorus guitars and effortless [drummer Chad] Sexton rolloffs are perfect summer jam material. The Beatlesque "na-nahs" on "Same Mistake Twice" bridge near-staccato riffs (a la "Flowing" from Soundsystem, for those who know what I mean) of the chorus and a bouncing guitar-wall. Notably, the second single "Beyond The Gray Sky," (which did poorly on the charts) with its soulful dub and exploding solos, remind one of the sun bursting through a wall of cumulonimbi. This is undoubtedly the album's climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars 311 with a bit of a Beatles vibe June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think this CD is amazing and shows the unique evolution from rap rock to where they are now. Noone is like 311. Nick Hexum is a wonderful singer and lyricist. Tim Mahoney is possibly the most underrated guitarist out there. P-Nut continues to beat that thang. SA can really sing, believe it or not. Chad Sexton is a fantastic drummer.
1. Creatures (For A While)-4.5/5.. I played it to much, catchy and a very good song.
2. Reconsider Everything-5/5.. Great song, one of the better songs on the CD.
3. Crack the Code-4/5.. Seemed like it would be a single, but wasnt. I think SA shines through with his singing on this song.
4. Same Mistake Twice-3/5.. My least favorite song on the CD, its not bad, but it gets very repitive. Solid, but not good.
5. Beyond the Gray Sky-5/5.. Amazing song, about Nick Hexum's best friend who committed suicuide. Probably the most emotional 311 song ever.
6. Seems Uncertain-5/5.. Im a sucker for acoustic and I love this song. This song has always reminded me of the Beatles.
7. Still Dreaming-5/5.. Lyrically one of the better songs.
8. Give Me A Call-5/5.. Another song that I always thought had single written all over it. Catchy.
9. Don't Dwell-4.5/5.. Awesome bass opening by P-Nut. Up tempo.
10. Other Side of Things-5/5.. Heaviest rocker.
11. When Jacks Rule the Realm-5/5.. Has a old rock vibe to it. Musically, the best song on the CD.
311 is the most positive band out there, they are very underrated and as a hardcore fan, that doesn't bother me. I don't really want 311 to be the trendy thing to listen to, I want my music. Its good to know though, they aren't going to sell out (like Limp Bizkit). They care about being on MTV, if they get on great, if not, who cares? 311 has an amazing underground following, thats getting bigger.
