well, being a long time hardcore 311 fan, let me say first that i was a bit disappointed in their last album. there were some great songs on it, but a few were just embarrassingly bad. but i got "from chaos" yesterday, and i was pleasantly surprised. it's a much more solid album, very offbeat and different grooves as usual, and a marked improvement in the lyrics IMO. reminds me of the blue album with a little bit of "music" thrown in on the mellow tracks. plus, the cd-rom features just kick ass. i can't wait for them to tour so i can see them a 5th time. what do you guys think about it, and what's your favorite 311 album? mine's grassroots.
