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.
