Overview

The third studio album from Canadian arena rockers Three Days Grace treads familiar ground, presenting 12 slabs of the kind of reliable, accessible and serviceable hard rock that will always have an audience. 2006's One-X dealt heavily with vocalist Adam Gontier's personal demons, a theme that continues on Life Starts Now, albeit with a hint of sunlight. With a sound that lands somewhere in between Breaking Benjamin, Collective Soul, and Godsmack, (Gontier sounds like a less volatile Trent Reznor) Life Starts Now treats the well-worn metal themes of anger, isolation, heartache, and redemption with the kind of begrudging respect they deserve, pumping out a competent flurry of fist-bump anthems ("Break," "Bully") and world-weary, midtempo rockers ("World So Cold," "Last to Know" that are so painfully earnest that one can almost hear director Michael Bay pitching them to the studio for inclusion on the soundtracks for his next ten Transformers sequels.

this album contains lyrics very deep about life as it is based on experiences of the band along the way. An incredible example of how to overcome the losses and not gave up the life.

Three Days Grace is in no way a sub-par band. Their music has always appealed to me and people I know. However, I've gotten used to a hardcore sound that echoed angst and a wish for redemption. Life Starts Now seems to be a reply to those previous songs; the music is softer and more peaceful, if not wistful. Tracks like "Last To Know" and "World So Cold" are the main examples. This album is not for new fans expecting a hard rock sound like their previous albums, but is a good Christmas present for a soft rock fan who's a little adventurous.

I love their sound and I already have their other albums. This is fantastic and a great following album to One-X!

WEll I absolutley loved One-x and was expecting amazing music on this cd too. NOt that it was bad in any way it was just... softer then their other cd's. Not that that's bad, but i totally loved the growl/screaming they had on some of their songs on one-x, but none of their songs on this cd has this. But nontheless, it was an amazing cd, and my favorite song on it was "Last to know" which was absolutley beautiful and amazing!!! =D

There wasn't a song on this album that I didn't like, it isn't as hard hitting as their other albums, but in a different way. If you knew the background story of their lead singer Adam, you would know why the title of this album is "Life Starts Now".

At first I didn't think I was going to really like this cd. Their other 2 are harder and more about negative, raw, hard emotins. That is what I was expecting. You still get that but the emotions aren't as negative but it's still really good. I love this band!!!!!!!!!! I would buy anything by them
