Album Review

The Better Life, 3 Doors Down's debut album, positions them somewhere between radio-ready post-grunge and more aggressive alternative metal. The best songs are memorable exercises in that style, and even though the songwriting is uneven, that's often to be expected from a first record; there is at least an indication of potential here. [Universal issued a "Deluxe Edition" of the album in 2007 that added a bonus disc made up of a 13-track live set.]

Car payment?

I really like this band. Wish they had new stuff. Would love to have the live songs but I really don't want to pay for songs I already have to get them. five stars because the band is great...

Good Album!!!!!

It's a good c.d and would love to have it but i can't see spending 13 dollars on it since i already have the album.

Anyway, if you don't own this CD already, you should probably get this version.

"Kryptonite," with its minor-key shuffle and references to Superman, was the catalyst for the band's career, generating an unprecedented buzz at a local radio station -- Biloxi's WCPR -- during the band's independent days. Such support helped make 3 Doors Down a regional favorite, enabling...
