5.0 out of 5 stars 311 has raised the bar for modern rock... June 19 2001
By evo311
Format:Audio CD
From Chaos is an incredible piece of work, from beginning to end. If you are already a 311 fan, you probably already have it. If you're not a fan yet, buy this album and become immersed in the 311 world. The styles in this album are astonishing, consisting of hard rock, rap, reggae, ska, dancehall, etc. One of the greatest things about 311 is their positive message, unlike most modern rock bands today. 311 changed my life for the better, and they will change yours too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why!? June 9 2004
By Arsenio
Format:Audio CD
311 is one of the greatest bands of all time. They combine hip-hop, rock, and raegae in a very unique style. I just have one thing to ask. Why do they include bonus tracks on foreign cds? THE U.S. NEEDS THESE TOO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite and flawless work May 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
Allow me to express how in awe I am right now. Got the point? I shall begin my review of 'From Chaos'.
Although I've always admired 311 and liked a few of their songs here and there, I never became what you would probably consider a complete "fan" until a few months ago. I got three of their albums ('Evolver', 'Soundsystem', and 'Transistor') last month and was extremely impressed, especially with 'Soundsystem'. I remembered loving "You Wouldn't Believe" and "Amber", and wanted to purchase the 'From Chaos' album.
After a month of looking for it, I found it today...and my CD collection will never be the same.
I don't see what this negativity is about - this is a BEAUTIFUL album. Not only is 311 the most original band out there, this album just flows. I am ecstatic about it. I can see this becoming one of my favorite CDs of all time. I like every song on here (that's rare). Standouts are "Amber" (I still haven't gotten sick of it), "You Wouldn't Believe", "Uncalm", and "Champagne." Tim Mahoney is among the best guitarists I've ever heard and even though many reviews on here proclaimed Nick Hexum's voice to be monotone, I find it to be beautiful and soothing.
All in all, a wonderful album. Amazing. I recommend it to anyone - 311 fan, not 311 fan, someone who's never HEARD of 311 - ANYBODY. This album is perfection and I'm not sure how I've went this long without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, But Not Great April 4 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was a good CD. A couple tracks, such as Champagne, I'll Be Here A While, and Amber, are completley addictive. The rest of the cd is just simply fair, simple electric guitar licks to fair drumming and easy vocals. Like I said earlier, though, the other 3 are REALLY good, musically.
You probably won't notice the musicallity though cuz if you are listening to 311, chances are you are high.
Therefore I suggest this. Buy it used. I wouldnt pay $12 for it though. Because if you like 311, you probably cant afford the $12 anyway cause you blew all of your money on pot.
311 - From Chaos = FSBS, For Stoners By Stoners.
Maybe thats why I dont like the rest of the cd?

5.0 out of 5 stars From Greatness April 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Another perfectly put together CD from the greatest band in the world 311. This album is a mix of mainly Rock, 2 nice laid back songs, and a great energized song. My personal favorite for this Album would have to be between Amber, Champagne, and Uncalm.

5.0 out of 5 stars 311 rules the realm March 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
311 for me is one of very few artists who, when they come out with a CD, I go to the music store the day the CD comes out first thing in the morning and have full confidence that the CD will be fantastic. From Chaos exceeded all expectations when I showed up at the local CD store at 10 AM on Tuesday June 19, 2001. I listened to the album at least six times in a row and still listen to it a minimum of once a week. Nick said in an interview that he wanted to make this album the hardest, 'most moshingest' album they had ever put out, although then they changed their minds and wrote some more chill material. The result, says Nick, is an album that is 'chilly-hard'. Here is a description of the songs:
(1) You Get Worked - This song rocks extremely hard, definitely makes you want to mosh. I would say only Livin' & Rockin' on Soundsystem rocks harder of all the songs they've done.
(2) Sick Tight - I would rate this as their #3 most rocking song. One of the best 311 songs ever. Hard rapping by Nick and SA and a great melodic chorus by Nick. The bass-playing is sick.
(3) You Wouldn't Believe - A song not intended to be as hard as the previous two, this is just a good rock song that is fun to sing along to.
(4) Full Ride - This is a great song, it has a slow heavy guitar riff and great rapping and lyrics by both Nick and SA. The chorus is my second favorite of any 311 song after Other Side of Things on Evolver.
(5) From Chaos - This song basically sums up the album lyrically and musically. SA says to all artists copying 311 (and there are many) 'making hybrid music back in '90 now it's on ya, I hear we were the model for the band you front, we spawned ya, finding it hard to come original? we warned ya.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Awesome Album Jan. 23 2004
By B. Wahl
Format:Audio CD
I don't think From Chaos is getting the credit it deserves. I totally disagree with the site review of Jennifer Maerz. This is one of 311's finest works to date. On this release, their sound continues to change and evolve, no pun intended, while still staying true to their signature blended flavor of hip-hop, ska, reggae, and rock. The tunes on this album satisfy every musical craving that a true 311 fan could have. Every aspect of their sound is touched, from the hard rockers such as "Sick Tight" and "You Get Worked", to the slower catchy-pop tunes, like "Amber" and "Champagne". What makes 311 so great is that they continue to stay true to their unique sound while still changing creatively on every album. As any true 311 fan will tell you, "From Chaos" is a must for your music collection, whether your a fan or not.

Once in every band's career, all the stars align, things come into focus, and an album is made that will remain as the nexus of that band's musical output. Read more
