The other issue that leads to the tiresome nature of this album is that it ends up sounding like 311 trying to cover 311. It sounds like they've already done this and we've already heard all of this before. That is not a good thing is this case. I can't even get through the whole album, it took three tries just to hear all the songs. It's that boring that it feels like a chore just to finish it. I hesitate to call the album bad, it's just so mundane it becomes irrelevant. If you even can finish the whole thing, chances are you'll forget about it after a few hours.
I don't think I would recommend this to anyone really. It's not worth a listen to anyone 311 fan or not. If you want to check it out you won't be repulsed but chances are you'll be disappointed at best. If you don't like 311 you definitely should stay away, this will not help you get into this band. As monotonous as it is, I wouldn't even recommend it to someone as a sleep aid, it's just hard to keep listening to altogether. The band is capable of so much more and it's a bit sad to see them put out something this boring.
