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...'

I've got a problem with most music critics. People keep saying 311 are just remaking their music over and over through their 15+ years. But when you mix their musical talents and they're own genre-breaking formula of hip-hop vocal work with the unique stylings of Nick and SA's, smooth guitar work by Tim (This album proves it), bass like only P-Nut can, and flawless drum work by Chad, 311 does own this genre of music. They built it ever since their Omaha days, and they continue to expound on it, no matter how much you think they keep redoing songs. Every album has it's own flavor, EVERY album. If you try to deny it, you're simply lying to yourself.
Now onto the album review. Transistor is by far the most experimental 311 disc that has been done. 21 tracks clocking over an hour. Rocking from the title track (Personally one of my favorite 311 songs), 311 still proves they can shake you up and get you movin. Switching back and forth, their songs move between their own potent rockin that kinda relates back to the latter tracks on the s/t CD, and the spaced out, deeply reverberated and lightened songs that drop one back into the 8:16 A.M. style of song but with a stronger beat and better production. One reviewer said "Rub a Dub" was the worst 311 song ever. Is that why they played the song on their Summer 2003 tour at 7 shows? 311 writes songs they enjoy playing, not because they will sell. The songs seamlessly flow together, and perhaps that's why people are not appreciative of it. Few of these songs could be on the radio, no doubt, but aren't most fans more appreciative of those tracks.
I've been listening to 311 for about 9 months, I've got them all minus the early Omaha sessions. Rating the 7 CD's:
1.Transistor
2.Grassroots
3.Soundsystem

... of the Blue Album. You know, the people who jumped on the "Down" bandwagon and were disappointed not to hear the same formulaic rock Limp Bizkit and others have made them expect. Anyone who's heard their first two albums should have known an album like this was coming.
It takes the reggae sound of "Paradise" from Music and Lose" and "1,2,3" from Grassroots and expands upon it, taking different musical variations on the same general sound. Also, this, more than any other album, showcases SA's really nice singing voice. Just listen to "Inner Light Spectrum" and "Creature Feature." Nick also does a great job on "Stealing Happy Hours," "Transistor," "Use of Time" and many others. Tim's guitar work is brilliant on the whole, with a lot of cool, trippy solos, too many to list. Same goes for P-Nut on bass. Just listen to the intro of "What Was I Thinking" and in "Prisoner".
My personal favorites are the dub-infused "Inner Light Spectrum" , "Stealing Happy Hours" , and "The Continuous Life" as well as the harder "Transistor" and "Jupiter". The only song I didn't really like was "What Was I Thinking." After the kickass bass intro, the heavy distortion ruins it by making the lyrics incomprehensible.
Overall, I would make this a "desert island" disc. I listened to it nightly for over a year and I'm still not tired of it. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes Sublime-ish reggae or fans of 311 songs like "1,2,3" or "Champagne" and "Amber" from From Chaos.

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!

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.
