I have enjoyed all of "311's" albums, but I easily like "Music" the most, and that's saying something. Being their debut, this isn't as experimental as later albums, but the combo of rock-rap and funk on here is very solid. And as you will hear, from the start "311" had great and positive lyrics, delivered perfectly from S.A. and Nick Hexum. I also feel, this is the point that "311" became the new "Chili Peppers", for me anyway. They just had that energy. This album is also actually 12 tracks, the last one being one of the best. Overall, if you get anything other than their "Greatest Hits", make it "Music".

This has to be one of the best debuts ever. My friend was a huge 311 fan and i wasn't really into them yet and he told me to buy this cd so i went to a used record store looking for from chaos but they didn't have it so i bought this. At first only a few tracks stood out but a few listens later i was addicted. I think this is one of the best albums ever. Every track is awesome, "Welcome", "My Stoney Baby", "Feels so Good", "Freak Out", etc, etc, etc. There's not a weak track to be found. If you buy this (and you should), don't expect the album to sink in after one listen, it's one of those brilliant albums where you have to listen to it a fews times to catch everything on it. For further listening pick up grassroots or from chaos or any other 311 album but those are just my personal favorites. But if your considering getting into 311, I would suggest getting Music first. Definitely Music!!!

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...

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'.

This funky release raised the bar for all "Music" in the mid-90s. It is timeless and introduced us to the future of great 311 music. This is a must-have for those who long for innovative and successful rock music. I couldn't tell you how many times I've spun this album, and each successive time feels like the first. Rock out.
