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.
While 311 are clearly in the process of finding their muse on "Music", their original blend of reggae, alternative, and rap provide for a thoroughly enjoyable, if lyrically shaky, first album.
This album took a while to grow on me, so it might not be the best place to start, but over time I've come to listen to this album quite a lot.

 311: Don't Tread on Me - PopMatters Music Review
The browns and yellows of 311's album art indicate something more distinguished and more lasting than the latest fly-by-night trend, even as the imagery those colors portray is the typical 311 mix of the psychedelic and the perfectly natural.
No, 311 would much rather employ a "live for today" mentality, throw out some positive vibes, have a good time, and toss in a dash of the seven-leafèd devil for good measure.
Nowhere is the new 311 more evident than in "Waiting", a fantastic little pop song that uses a chord progression in its chorus most commonly associated with barbershop a cappella.

Unity was the first album the group could afford to put on CD and was a huge hit locally, selling about 1000 copies.
With that on their hands, 311 set off to LA to take another stab at the music industry.
After nearly six years, 311 had the hit they were looking for - with its energetic hip-hop/metal verses and catchy sing-along choruses, the single "Down" became a major modern-rock hit.

 IGN: Local-eyzed: 311 Tear It Up In Mass
Then they ended the show with their biggest hit to date, 1995's "Down," in which SA preached "check the technique, 311 in MA" instead of the usual lyrics, "311 in LA." It was a nice touch to show that 311 knows how to bring it down to a local level.
I've seen 311 too many times live to really call this show the best I've ever seen them, and while it was a great, energetic show, the venue and lack of true fans there detracted greatly from the experience.
It was one of the strongest 311 set lists I've ever seen live, their musicianship has never been stronger, their energy was great, and the fact that I met the awesome (and very friendly) SA Martinez didn't hurt either.

For those that know me well, you will know that 311 is my all time favorite band and have been since I picked up one of their earliest recordings at a little record store in 1993.
I cant wait for the new album to drop on July 26th that shit is gonna be tight from the way Nick describes it.
First heard them when the blue album came out (I was in 7th grade and 12 years old), but I went and bought it, as well as caught myself up with the older CDs as well.

I first became a fan of 311 back in 1995, when their self-titled full length album, '311', was released.
What I really love about this album, straight up over the other 311 albums, is that the beats and mixes of each genre of music they bring into 'Music' is so unique and very well put together.
While the other albums they've put out over the years since then are very good, with a different style to each one, 'Music' is the smartest when it comesto lyrics and beats.

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.
311 is definately one of the best bands of all-time and its because they have albums like this to their credit.

 Biography
311 didn't get their permanent line-up until 1991, but a lot of the members were in other bands.
In 1991, 311 got their permanent lineup with Tim Mahoney on lead guitar, SA Martinez on vocals and the turntables, Nick Hexum on lead vocals and guitar, Chad Sexton on drums, and P-Nut on the bass.
With a new album's worth of songs in their arsenal, 311 will hit the road this Fall for a special grassroots club tour, which will be followed by a U.S. tour of larger venues throughout the year 2000.

They also have several (4) albums released only in Omaha (their "hometown"...hee hee) and now unavailable in stores- "Hydroponic", "Downstairs," "Dammit", and "Unity".
After an incident with P-Nut and his friend and guitarist Jimmie, the name Unity turned into 311 (this is, in case ya dont know, police code for indecent exposure- P-Nut and Jimmie were caught skinny dipping in a public (?) pool in Omaha).
311 does NOT, however, have ANY connection to the KKK- the fact that 311 could be translated to 3 K's (as K is the 11th letter) is merely a coincidence.

This is another powerful lyrical song explaining that 311 and their fans are going to make it through it all because they have the power of the Unity.
With respect to Nick and SA's habit, 311 was able to produce a song that would become an anthem to all their fans and a personal bow to the pot smokers of America.

The release of their other albums were successful, but their unique sound kept them from being big on the radio.
In 1997, there were allegations made that 311 stood for KKK, as people said it implied three times the eleventh letter in the alphabet, which happens to be K. This was an unwelcome rumor as 311 has spent much of their musical careers promoting unity.
Besides being on the road to promote their newest album released this summer, Don't Tread on Me, the band has toured in support of John Kerry and is concerned with the damage left from Hurricane Katrina.

I'd say any fan of 311 should have this album even if you are a late bloomer only knowing the softer slower new stuff.
What the "Blue Album" accomplishes is taking the style of their first two releases, "Grassroots" and "Music" and makes it a little easier on the ears.
more polished then their first album but not yet overproduced, it is an absolute necessity for any 311 fan or late blooming rock fan searching desperately for some decent rock...
