    I'm keeping the poll simple. I know you want more. You want something specific. Or you want nothing specific. It's multiple choice.

    I was goin to be a smart ass and say, “I don’t know”, or “a good one”, but @jukeboxgroove summed it up well; however, you can’t mention wanting “progressive rock w/ some reggae” without also listing Wildfire as an example, since it’s the most prog rockish (also with reggae) song they’ve ever done.

    They should write fun songs for the live concert experience. It's be helpful if the album had instructions on when the audience should jump or get up.

    I chose Rock and fast-paced/high energy. I would really like more rockers on the next one. Or even heavy slow rock. In the styles like Down, Hydroponic, Homebrew, Sever, How Do You Feel?, Sick Tight, Hostile Apostle, Wake Your Mind Up, Other Side of Things, Jackpot, Rock On, Ebb and Flow, The Great Divide, First Dimension, Existential Hero, Too Late, One and the Same, Syntax Error...(any type of rock sound from Transistor/Soundsystem/From Chaos era) i could name more but you get the point. MORE ROCK for me.

    So, based on the votes so far, we generally want a fast paced, high energy rap/rock album, half way saturated with reggae, and just a sprinkle of chill.

    This Simpsons clip at 1:12 is a microcosm of this thread and what the BB wants the new album to be:

    I want at least a couple of songs in the same vein as Borders or Sick Tight. Fast paced, with a little more of old school Nick rapping. His newer stuff is laid back and mellow. The closest he's come lately (that I can think of) is Rock On and he was still slower and less aggressive. He kills it at the shows so he can still do it.

    I want something different. That's really all I care about. Best part about 311 is they always do something different than before all while still keeping it tightly 311 sounding.... Please do not make Mosaic pt 2.
