Eclectic rock outfit 311 began to hit its stride with this sophomore effort. The impulse to skip wildly between styles is one of the band's distinguishing characteristics, and that impulse comes to the fore on GRASSROOTS. In addition to the mixture of funk, hard rock, and hip-hop that typified 311's debut, GRASSROOTS also features island grooves, psychedelia, and jam band-like explorations.

311 scoffs at categorical definitions throughout the disc, giving no credence to the commonly accepted definitions of rock, hip-hop, and the like. Fortunately, the individual members all have the instrumental chops and the freewheeling sense of fun needed to make the pell-mell fusion work, and while the group would continue to refine its aesthetic and gain in popularity with future releases, GRASSROOTS remains one of their strongest and most defining efforts.
