I have been a fan of 311 since I first heard the 'Blue Album' at a friend's house in 1996. I went out and bought that album, as well as 'Grassroots' and 'Music' right away, and when I found out they were coming out with 'Transistor' I went out and bought it right when it came out. It was then, and always has been, not only my favorite 311 album, but my favorite album ever. I must admit though that Evolver may be tied with this album as the best ever. You can't beat 21 tracks with drums, guitar, and bass better than any other rock band out there can do, and creative and positive lyrics and mixing of styles. Is there a better song than Use of Time? I doubt it. I love every track on this album and I find it difficult to fathom anyone who doesn't like 311 or who claims to like them but doesn't like this album. These people do not understand music. 'You're a transistor - Lightning resistor - Conducting to the mother star - That's what you are...'

This CD is one of the best ones that 311 has ever done. TRANSISTOR and BEAUTIFUL DISASTER are instant classics. It seems that 311 was coming into their prime with this album, since only Soundsystem (the follow up to this album) has been the only one to really match it, in my opinion.
This album combines all of the good aspects of 311: hard rock, Carribean/Reggae influences, and good lyrics to create a great flow...and a highly listenable set of tunes. Highly recommended!

With a 311 show fast approaching to Milwaukee's Summerfest, I wanted to make sure I was up to date on all their material. I felt compelled write a review of Transistor- 311's best album and one that rarely leaves my CD player after over 6 years. This album brings it all- a few hard tracks, a few reggae, ska, etc. the whole 311 gammit. I really enjoy two of the slower tracks the best- Use of Time and Stealing Happy Hours- perfect just to chill out to. Other standouts are Transistor, Prisoner, Continuous Life, and Rub a Dub- a really fun reggae-fused track that makes me feel like I'm sipping a tropical drink on the beach in the Caribbean. Overall- this is a great album- front to back and to produce something that remains tireless to this day really says something about a group. I highly recommended this CD to anyone.

This Album is quite good!!! At first it's sound like a bit of a mission to get into but in the end it's worth it!!! It's very eclectic which I really like especially the dubness of a lot of the songs. The songs are weird which I like also and it's cool because 311 make pretty original kinda music even though you can compare them to other bands like Incubus. Good music to actually listen to each song adds something interesting and different!!!!

Transistor is my favorite 311 album, and most of Soundsystem a close second.

i've been listening 311 religiously for 3 years now. it troubles me to think that there are people (freaks, if you will), who think that 'transistor' is 311's worst album. anyway, i could sit here and give my 2 cents on why 'transistor' is the best album. but i think the other reviews pretty much have that covered. heres my synopsis of all their albums, best to non-best.
Transistor - it took several listens to realize it, but this is definately 311's best. very eclectic album.
Grassroots - almost ties w/ 'transistor' as 311's best album.
Music - rocks 100% from beginning to end, no fillers whatsoever. although it lacks the depth that 'transistor' and 'grassroots' have.
From Chaos - solid.
Evolver - like 'music', theres no fillers on this one, brilliant album all around.
Self-Titled - really good album, but lacks the diversity found other 311 albums, alot of rap phrasing on this one.
Soundsystem - easily my least fav 311 album. not a terrible album by any means, just not as good as the others.

I need to keep this short, and I will write a blow-by-blow of all the songs when the time presents itself.
Simply put: If you like real, poignant, timeless music then this album is for you. If you think that 311 never existed before "Down" topped the charts in '95, then skip this one.
Take it from a psychotically objective, 11-year-fan, writer, and longtime bassist.
I really wish I could give this album 5 stars...but I cannot, because there are inded some weak tracks on this one. But, unlike most critics and fans who said that the album should have been cut in half, I only see about 5-6(out of 21 total, 22 if you include the Intro) tracks that I would have left out...and even they have their merits. Had this album been released with the standard 12-15 (best)tracks that one usually finds on a 311 album, it would be a 5-star album. The music still holds everything over current music standards, being largely a mishmash of reggae, hip-hop, and art-house rock, with only really 3-4 songs that harken the hyper-aggro-rap style found on the Blue album(which, in contrast to the person who actually ranked this album as the weakest, "Blue" was their weakest album IF you actually compare both musicianship and songwriting, not b/c it was your first exposure to the group. I'm not saying that you are not entitled to you opinion, but people seem to forget that that is just that, an opinion...and in this case, that person is just wrong, that is why we call them 'opinions', becase they are not 'facts'.).
This CD is 7 yrs old and I have yet to get tired of the best tracks. What seems like trite, beaten-to-the-ground music by today's standards is actually some of the best and longest lasting stuff to come from this group(think "Angel Dust" by Fatih No More).
