5.0 out of 5 stars 311, 1993, still doin you right March 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I won't lie to you, I didn't listen to 311 until...eh, maybe 8 months ago. I've been a black metal and death metal fan for most of my early years. After that phase music essentially encompassed almost every aspect of my life. When all my friends rushed out to go buy "Evolver" the day it came out, I was confused. What was all this rush about? So I'm thinking, okay, go buy that one, let's see what they got...HOLY S*IT, they got it. Ok, this isn't a single-record deal here. Backtrack to a decade earlier, and this is "Music", 311's major-label debut (Ok, so maybe not real major-label but it wasn't independent). It took me a bit to get into it, but as I keep going through, I see that these are where their most solid melodies and beats come through.
Welcome was a rather interesting album-opener, I think that's what stopped me initially. But afterwards, Freak Out just explodes on and keeps moving with the now solid back and forth groove pattern. This is rap-rock's roots, and this is where all the other bands crowding radio and MTV are. All 311 does is groove, and that's all they need. No one else can touch this combination. Flip between Paradise and Unity and yes, that is still the same band. Although Music still isn't my favorite 311 album (Transistor got me good), I recognize it to be the foundation, and a damn good foundation at that. For these guys to be messin with the same musical revolution they started from high school until their mid 30s is amazing. No one can even claim to stand on the musical world as 311. So just chill out, stay clean (311-stylee) and nod your head to this...

5.0 out of 5 stars the world was not prepared for this March 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album came out in 1993 and didn't fare very well at the time. 311's sound was so original and so radically different from everything else out there (only RATM was also combining rap with rock), that music critics then (and they still do now) totally dismissed them. Many of us who are fortunate to know about 311 and this album know how incredible it is.
(1) Welcome - A great intro song, I like where the music stops and Chad hits his snappy snare. They had recorded this song a year earlier for their self-produced EP 'Hydroponic' but rerecorded it for Music.
(2) Freak Out - Another rerecorded song from the Hydroponic EP (lyrics were significantly changed in some verses), this is one of their greatest all-time live songs that they play at every show. Makes you want to jump up and down.
(3) Visit - My favorite song on the album, goes from hard rapping verses to fun-to-sing-along-to choruses to a great little reggae-ish solo at the end.
(4) Paradise - My second favorite song on the album, this one has great lyrics ('when the day is done what you receive is the sum of what you took out from what you put in'), and I love the parts where Tim does guitar solo madness with SA rapping at the same time.
(5) Unity - This song was originally recorded two years earlier for their Unity EP and was rerecorded for this album. Nick sounds almost angry on this song, but the message is of course about unity. A great live song.
(6) Hydroponic - The distorted bass line gives me chills and then the guitar comes in and makes you want to headbang so hard you might injure yourself.
(7) My Stoney Baby - A great somewhat chill song with nice guitar noodling by Tim. I love the opening line sung by Nick 'The fish who keeps on swimming is the first to chill upstream'.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing debut album of immense proportions June 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
311 is definately one of the best bands of all-time and its because they have albums like this to their credit. "Music" is just all out raw power and energy. This cd (like all of 311's cds) satisfys any mood with hard rockers, and some laid back reggae. Every track is worth listening to and there isn't one skipper.....
1.Welcome 4/5 starts reggae then picks it up and turns into a rockin' tune
2.Freak Out 4/5 explodes about 8 seconds in and keeps on rockin' the whole way thru...has a slower catchy peaceful like chorus
3.Visit 5/5 One of my favs on the cd..just a powerful song w/ a great chorus
4.Paradise 5/5 wow!! an awesome laid back tune..so relaxing makes it really feel like summer..has a cuple slight explosions where SA jumps in w/ some great rapping
5.Unity 5/5 how can you not headbang and sing along to this radical song
6.Hydroponic 5/5 recently has becmoe one of my favs...starts hard then breaks into a catchy chorus.. "jumpin' out my skin, the skin i'm in"
7.My Stoney Baby 5/5 excellent laid back trippy-like song
8.Nix Hex 5/5 Slower but not too slow..medium paced catchy classic
9.Plain 5/5 Funky rap-rockin' ...its sweeeet
10.Feels So Good 5/5 Pure power and energy.."in your face and it feels so good"
11.Do You Right 5/5 One of my top five favorite 311 songs, you can chill and listen to it, headbang and dance to it, sing along to it. One of 311's most dynamic songs ever
12.Fat Chance 5/5 Sweetness...makes you want to beat the snot out of someone
311's first album is one of there best...but then again all of 311's albums are one of their best..they can't do any wrong
They're also amazing live...I can't wait to see them July 24!!!
PICK ALL OF THERE CDS UP

This is easily my favorite 311 album, although Grassroots is a semi-close 2nd. For a debut album, they really hit the nail on the head (much like Rage did with their debut). Read more
