5.0 out of 5 stars Good Lord, Yes... June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
Listening to GRASSROOTS today, I'm still overwhelmed by the variety of styles on this record. When it came out in 1994, it sounded like nothing else on the pop music radar. Here was a hard rock band that was equally comfortable playing reggae, latin-tinged ballads, "jam band" rock, rap and even a little jazz. Unlike many other versatile groups of the time (Phish, Dave Matthews) 311 rocked harder and very often melded these various styles into one seamless track. It's this type of musical alchemy that propelled 311 to their status as one of the top live bands in the U.S., while at the same time confusing lame critics (Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly) who were incapable of accepting a sound so utterly original.
The laugh is squarely on the critics now. 311 have been together for almost 15 years now, and they're as big as they've ever been. Yet GRASSROOTS remains their masterpiece; 45 minutes of essential 311 music.
01. Homebrew 10/10 - The perfect opening salvo with a killer Led Zep guitar riff and lyrics inspired by an acid trip.
02. Lucky 7/10 - Weakest track on the CD. Still salvaged by its percussive groove and funny lyrics.
03. Nutsymtom 9/10 - Heavy intro groove, breaks into a Santana-like jam for the second half with a killer Tim Mahoney guitar solo.
04. 8:16 am 9/10 - Very pretty mellow rocker. Exactly the type of song you wouldn't expect from this sort of band and a great example of their genre-smashing greatness.
05. Omaha Stylee 9/10 - Awesome rap-flavored track is a shoutout to their home town.
06. Applied Science 8/10 - Nice groove, killer Chad Sexton drum solo.
07. Taiyed 8/10 - Another good change-of-pace track. SA handles all the lyrics himself while Nick Hexum sits in on second guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin of funk-hop June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this album, I couldn't understand what it was that i was hearing. It is original in so many ways. The lyrics, the way it was recorded, the flows, the brilliant funk grooves, the off-beat drums, and the groove energy. I didn't know if what I heard was guitars, or programed riffs. It was all so new and original. I have been into this album for years because their is so much to explore. The rhyming is incredible. I can't even flow along with a lot of the lyrics still, and I've heard the album countless times. The subject matter is wise and very interesting. Their are many little hidden messages within the lyrics, but 311 does not preach at all, and convey their message in very colorfull and creative ways - like this lyric about staying grounded and stuctured in your expression- "the roots that grow underground are as big as the tree that you see, if not it will fall down." I could praise so many ways of this album, but if you feel like exploring something successfully experimental and outside of predictable, then pick up Grassroots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly Amazing May 11 2004
By andrew
Format:Audio CD
This album defines what in my words is an absolutly amazing album. Every song has its own meaning and beat. I own all of their cd's except the Omaha sessions and i would out this as their best album with transistor in a close second. This cd has a sound to it heared no where else. 311 has such an original sound that you can't think off any other band that sounds like them. Nick has a one of a kind voice that is just awesome. I'm seeing them in concert for the first time in July and can't wait because I'm sure they're awesome live.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of 311`s best albums May 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
Grassroots is one of 311`s best albums, mainly because it`s where they put a stamp on their style of rap/rock/reggae/funk. All the tracks from start to finish are outstanding. It has a nice mix of hard rocking, mosh pit inducing songs like Omaha Stylee to mellower stuff like 1,2,3. If you`re going to start your 311 collection, then Grassroots should be the first album that you get.

5.0 out of 5 stars 311 has grassroots March 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is in my opinion the best album to start with if you're new to 311. So if you're reading reviews trying to decide if you should buy this CD then YES, BUY IT! 311 is my favorite music artist. I could listen to only 311 and be perfectly content. Here is an attempt at describing the songs on this fantastic album:
(1) Homebrew - This song has a great intro riff and has a section with Nick rapping at his best, then a chorus, then SA rapping at his best, and then another chorus. I've seen them play this song live several times and it is amazing live.
(2) Lucky - This song rocks really hard and was written by Chad (drummer). Great guitaring by Tim too.
(3) Nutsymptom - This song comes in hard and fierce with rapping by SA and then Nick, and then P-Nut plays a funky slap bass line and Chad does who-knows-what on the drums while Tim plays a beautiful solo. One of the best 311 songs ever.
(4) 8:16 AM - A nice jazzy chill song.
(5) Omaha Stylee - This song rocks really hard, a definite headbanger and a great song to see live. Great instrument playing by all.
(6) Applied Science - Another standard of their live show, they always expand the drum solo live and bring out more drums so that the whole band is doing these crazy beats that make you want to jump and thrash around.
(7) Taiyed - The only song other than several on Transistor in which SA sings the whole song. Nick plays second guitar while Tim plays the guitar solo parts.
(8) Silver - Another song that rocks hard with great creative guitar riffs and rapping by Nick and SA. The opening verse by Nick may be his best rapping in any song and has a great anti-racism message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible album.
If there is one 311 album that you should own its this one. What a great CD. Better than all the rest. Noteworthy mentions are music and self-titled. This is a must have.
