5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasently Surprised... This is Good stuff! January 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD not too long ago because I had a 311 craving and the CD store was all out of the 2 311 CDs that I really wanted (Transistor and Grassroots). I didn't have any real expectations buying it. I was familiar with and liked "Down" and "All Mixed Up". I had also bought From Chaos (Good Album) and Evolver (Not as good album) and I was familiar with their work on all of the other albums. Upon first listening I quickly got drawn into the songs. I give you a rundown of my opinion of each track.
1.Down (4.5/5) - Nice intro song, and of course the song that first got them national attention. It lost half a point because i had heard it a lot already.
2.Random (4/5) - Catchy drum hook in the beginning leads into some melodic singing and rapping by both SA and Nick. Catchy chorus too, and I love the uptempo ending to the song.
3.Jack'o'lantern's Weather (5.5/5) - Second best song on the CD. This song hooked me in from the opening edgy guitar line straight into the excellent rapping done by Nick and then SA. I found myself singing the chorus over and over again.
4.All Mixed Up (5/5) - Nice smooth, laid-back song. It's what mellow 311 should sound like. Its smooth and flowing with some good lyrics thrown in as well. Nice.
5.Hive (4/5) - This is the most "hardcore" track on the CD, aside from containing the most strong language, it has some furious hard thrown lyrics by both Nick and SA. It would get a 5/5 but it doesn't do much for me musically.
6.Guns (Are for *******) (5/5) - By looking at the song title I figured this one would be cheesy. I'm glad I was wrong. I love the rapping done by SA on this one. Nick does a great job on it too. The guitar part is catchy as hell and matches the lyrics excellently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another essential 311 album September 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you read through most of the reviews on here for this album, you will see that most of the more negative reviews are by people that don't like 311 period, not just THIS album. I don't really see the point writing a review for an album that is by a band you know you don't like. I'll suggest that you don't listen to those types of people.

If you are interested in hearing 311, this is an essential to get. The rap/rock style shines through in this CD. However, this is not necessarily their style that they use for every CD. I don't get how some people can say that 311 always sounds the same. 311 has always been one to create something new, try something different, take a chance. I think they did on this CD and I think they do on almost everything they do.

If you like rock, then you'll like this CD. Yes, there is rapping by both Nick and S.A., but its not ALL rap. Songs like Purpose, Sweet and All Mixed Up are melodic gems.

Overall, as a 311 fan, I am giving the Blue Album 5 stars because I think it is an important piece to the 311 puzzle. It is a must have for any 311 fan, old or new.

Format:Audio CD
I used to love 311's self-titled album (otherwise known as "The Blue Album"), and I mean, LOVE it. When 311 first came out, there was nothing like them out there. Aside from coming up with other reggae influenced acts such as No Doubt and Sublime, they also helped to build the rap-rock genre at the same time. On top of that, while most everyone was moping around, feeling sorry for themselves, 311 were re-inforcing a positive message. A truly multifaceted band if ever there was one. However, in 2006, I have to be honest with myself and say that "The Blue Album" just does not stand the test of time as well as one would think.

Now, don't get me wrong. This is still an excellent album, and believe me, it stands up to multiple listens. But 311 have gone onto better things (i.e. "Transistor" and "Soundsystem") and have really spread their wings since 1995. 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. I'm sure that must've aggravated a bunch of people back in the day (I didn't know of 311 until this album, so what did I care?) but it still makes for damn great music. Sure, "Down" is officially the most overplayed song ever, as I could go my whole life without hearing it ever again and still be happy, but the other singles "All Mixed Up" and "Don't Stay Home" sound just as good now as they ever did. "Hive" and "Jackolantern's Weather" are the wildcards of the album, songs that no other band could pull off. "T & P Combo" and "Random" are also worthy of mentioning, just because they are the best, straight-forward rock songs of the set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure art, if you listen straight through July 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Five stars is a must for 311's breakthrough album. 311 once again show off their skill of genre bending while nearly flawlessly bridging the gap between being unknowns to a radio friendly band. While I agree with others that this is not their best album it still blows everything else away. 311 has a raw energy that just seems to flow, and the fact that they are probably the best musicians in the world right now makes them very enjoyable to listen to, even if you did get tired of hearing Down every five minutes in ninth grade. This is by far their most diverse album. Grassroots is also, but the Blue Album has very poignant differences between each song. Listening on shuffle kind of throws of the albums groove. Congrats for fitting an amalgam of styles and tempos on one CD and making it work. I wouldn't change a dang thing.
