Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
These nutty Nebraskans have always been fond of turning things upside down, so it's only fitting that they'd choose to celebrate their tenth anniversary -- give or take a few months -- by treating fans to a bit of a sonic gift. Naturally enough, this collection cherry-picks the best-known tracks from 311's catalog -- from the head-bobbing "Down" to the ska-tinged "I'll Be Here Awhile" -- but also appends a three-pack of new items. "How Do You Feel" is propelled by the band's trademark ability to seamlessly shift from mosh-along rap-metal verses to catchy sing-along choruses, while the breezy "First Straw" sails along on a bouncy reggae rhythm custom-made for summer ...

Naturally enough, this collection cherry-picks the best-known tracks from 311's catalog -- from the head-bobbing "Down" to the ska-tinged "I'll Be Here Awhile" -- but also appends a three-pack of new items. "How Do You Feel" is propelled by the band's trademark ability to seamlessly shift from mosh-along rap-metal verses to catchy sing-along choruses, while the breezy "First Straw" sails along on a bouncy reggae rhythm custom-made for summer consumption. Drummer Chad Sexton flexes his muscles on a retooled, considerably more spacious version of the driving "Homebrew," a song that initially appeared on the Grassroots album. Greatest Hits '93-'03 is rounded out by a surprisingly faithful cover of the Cure's "Love Song" that marks the farthest afield 311 has ventured so far -- and points toward a fruitful second decade ahead.
All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
From the chunkheaded rap-rock beta tests "Down" and "All Mixed Up" through the blue-eyed make-out reggae of "Amber" and on to latter-day stuff like the underrated Soundsystem single "Come Original," 311 spanned the nascence and ultimate codification of the alternative nation. "F*ck the naysayers 'cause they don't mean a thing!" -- if you went to college in the 1990s, 311 was on your radar. Greatest Hits '93-'03 remasters the highlights from those years, includes the Omaha group's graceful cover of the Cure's "Love Song," and pads the set with two new songs. As for the unreleased material, "First Straw" is a pleasant enough reggae-rock jam of the variety S.A., Nick Hexum, et al., have grown skilled -- if not necessarily better -- at writing, while "How Do You Feel" is a muscular rocker with the usual eager rap/triumphant chorus dynamic. Other highlights include a version of Grassroots opener "Homebrew" remixed for added punch and grit, and the diametrically opposed Evolver cuts "Creatures For a While" and "Beyond the Gray Sky." While "Do You Right" is the only representative from 1993's Music, it's nice to remember that it sounds like Fishbone playing Love. In short, Greatest Hits '93-'03 is the perfect time capsule for the casual 311 fan. It might even shake loose the name of that stoner kid from freshman year.

    Great Album

    I am not a huge fan of greatest hits albums because how do you decide on the songs to put into the album but 311(easily one of the last good bands out on the market these days) has done a great job of just collecting their singles that were chart toppers and putting them into one solid album. If you're a diehard 311 fan then this album already has all the songs you know and probably own except for the last two-which are new. I think 311 is being smart here...they have reached a whole new generation of fans with "Love Song" and are introducing themselves all over again(which it seems like they have to do endlessly-this shouldn't happen but it does) with this album. The new song "Last Straw" is a really cool funky reggae vibe song, typical of a 311 fusion. I suggest buying this album if you haven't heard any of 311's other sounds or if you're a diehard fan. Support these guys...they exist because they make great music-the bands that copied them aren't around anymore. Take a look at the original bands that fused rock and rap-the Chilli Peppers(still around),the Beastie Boys(still around), 311(still around)...what happened to the bands that copied them...Limp Bizcuit anyone? Those bands that copied aren't around because they sucked and were sell outs. Give it up for NikHex, SA, P-Nut, Mr. Sexon, and Mahoney...they deserve your attention and listening ears. Go out and see them this summer in the best concert around-MMW, The Roots, and 311! Feel the unity.
