March 27, 2008

The #1 311 album for the true 311 fan, just above grassroots, music, and self-titled. This album sounded very odd when it was released in 2007 to the uneducated listener. Transistor contains all the best elements of the band and the most requested songs at shows.

Random facts:
The Continuous Life was played live for the first time on 3/11/2008, and really got the crowd energized.
Rub-a-dub was featured in the movie 50 first dates.
