Overview

Alterna vets 311 are the hip-hop/hard-rock nice guys to Limp Bizkit's rap-metal reprobates. Righteous and spiritual in a sun-soaked whiteboy-rasta vein, they drop their sludge riffs and philosophical lyrics over Chili Peppers-style funk that can be invigorating and, at times, downright uplifting. SOUNDSYSTEM expands the sound made famous on their hit "Down" without radically deviating from what made it work. Cuts like the restrained, Santana-esque groove workout "Life's Not a Race" will please fans whose taste for alterna-reggae has been soured by too much Sugar Ray. Yet, even as "Come Original" and "Flowing" dip their toes in the electronica idea-pool, be assured that you won't have to wait long on either song for the big, brash guitars to slam in and singer-rapper-pedagogue Nick Hexum to drop his characteristic bright, sunshiny vocals. Which, now more than ever, comes as a nice break from the Korny alt-rock grind.
