    Maybe its just me but usually when a new song gets released on a greatest hits album its so/so mostly. But First Straw is a great great tune.

    It has a lot to do with the sound of the snare drum. Not sure what they are using now, but they used to have what sounds like a metal-shelled snare tuned like a timbale, which by itself heavily contributed to their old reggae feel

    • Thomas G
      Thomas G Year ago

      Chad’s technique is the snare tone. He rimshots most of his snare hits. His left hand sits further back than other drummers so his center snare hits are closer to the edge giving more rimshot tones

      Lol you make this comment on a soft 311 track, making the same music for 30 years would have left them fanless, i have always enjoyed growing up with these 5 wonderful musicians b/c they seem to grow in the same direction as me so i continue to be able to relate to their tracks year after year, from my teenage angst all the way into mid life when i realized how differently i see the world now

    I love 311 but this video sucks. And again I really love 311. I blame the producer. Cause the music is sick, specially that bass line. pnut beat that goddamn thing

    • Steve Vento
      Steve Vento Year ago

      All their videos are kind of in the middle. Plagued mostly by the fact they were produced in 90s..... also by this time videos aren’t as popular anymore anyways. Very few bands that aren’t super mainstream don’t always have the best videos...

      Check out Stereolithic and Mosaic their 2 recent albums. They've matured and know exactly what style to produce for maximum effect. It feels like they're in a great groove right now.

    • avalon629h

      Remember that they live for reinvention of their style. That means that their music will evolve over time. that how 311 rolls.

      @Ricky Ray Lol, according to most die hard fans, Don't Tread on Me is probably their worst album, BY FAR! Uplifter was pretty good, and Universal Pulse was also good although kinda short (only 8 songs). Their latest album, Stereolithic has it's moments, but isn't that good in my opinion and I would compare it to DToM...

      @OmahaStylee26 New albums haven't been as tasty as their old stuff. IMO, dont tread on me was their last good one.
