Album Review

Three Days Grace's self-titled debut showcases the simplicity of their music, which is both the band's biggest strength and biggest weakness. The album's taut arrangements and grinding but melodic sound are quintessential alt-metal, suggesting a much poppier, less cerebral Helmet (or among Three Days Grace's contemporaries, Chevelle), and while the production is mostly simple and crunchy, it occasionally delves into Linkin Park-like atmospheres. At its best, the band's focus and adherence to alt-metal's formulas — coupled with tight songwriting and some unexpectedly pretty choruses — results in a strong tracks that are more memorable than the work of many of their peers. "I Hate Everything About You" was Three Days Grace's big single and remains the band's best song, gaining most of its power from its directness and bluntness in examining a dysfunctional relationship. Though there's nothing else quite as strong on the rest of the album, "Born Like This," "Just Like You," and "Scared" are also good examples of the band's surprisingly hooky songwriting. However, when the songwriting isn't quite up to par, Three Days Grace's simplicity becomes more generic than focused. The cookie-cutter angst of song titles like "Burn," "Drown," and "Now or Never" and lyrics like "Home"'s "By the time you come home/I'm already stoned/I can hardly wait to leave this place" may tap into the feelings of the band's audience, but they're not especially distinctive. The album's second half falters a bit when compared to the punch of Three Days Grace's first few songs, although the power ballads "Take Me Under" and "Wake Up" show that the band is equally good at (somewhat) quieter songs as well as loud ones. Although this debut is a little uneven, it's also promising. Three Days Grace are definitely one of the most accessible alt-metal bands of the 2000s; they just need to add some more distinctiveness to their sound.

With the great quality, the experience of Three Days Grace's debut album is even more thrilling! With the rich chords of Burn, and indie sound of Just Like You, this album won't ever get old, and is guaranteed to entertain for years on end. Here's a track by track review of my experience. Burn: 10/10: A great opener, with lyrics that are almost guaranteed to make you sing along. Just Like You: 9/10: I was a bit disappointed with this song, to be honest, but this is a big hit that kept me banging my head to its rhythms. I Hate Everything About You: 15/10: My favorite song off of this album, and one of their biggest hits! Home: 10/10: Great song. The lyrics are imbued with anger about a failing marriage with faults from both sides. Scared: 10/10: Speechless. This song is so great, I don't know how to describe it. Let You Down: 10/10: Easiest lyrics to remember on this album. Now or Never: Helps you make choices in life. Born Like This: 3/10: The worst song on the album. A grunge imitator in a post-grunge world. Drown: 10/10: Awesome lyrics with heavy guitar. Wake Up: 9.5/10: The only song to actually use profanity. Other than that, its great! Take Me Under: 7/10: Its OK for a month, then it gets boring. Overrated: 10/10: Shows how the government is acting in some places. Overall: 9.5/10: Great album, but they could definitely cut some songs out.

By far my favorite Rock band. :D

God, I love everything about Three Days Grace. Adam Gontier has such a strong, powerful voice, and has very unique vocals! You don't hear such a powerful Rock singer such has him now a days. Most of the songs are mostely well written and creative. They all have the Three Days Grace spunk to them. Each song is so full of power, it's just so intense. Three Days Grace freakin' rocks. >:D

Three Days Grace - GIVE ME MORE!!

For a looooong time, I defined rock and rock-metal by this thing I liked to call the "Three Days Grace O-Meter". It was based on guitar/bass complexity and awesomness, voice and lyrics presented by the lead singer, and drum factor. The reason I could use Three Days Grace on here was because they rocked the top of the scale. Today... nothing has changed. I still use Three Days Grace to decide whether the guitar is awesome, the drums kick butt, and the lyrics make me want change. Viva la Three Days!
