Overview

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.

Awesome! Absoutley Amazing! Rock in general speaks more to me than anything else but Three Days Grace just makes it more amazing! my favorite songs are 'Home' and 'I Hate Everything About You' if I feel sad, angry, or just misunderstood I go to my room and crank up my favorite bands up and just block everything but the music out I love to crank up Three Day Grace its just something that you want to play anywhere you never get tired of it

I think that this is the best cd ever because all of the songs are good, not just a couple. Most cds only have a couple of good songs, but this cd is different.

Three Days Grace, in my opinion, has created an album where every song sounds totally flawless and maintains the air that epitomizes rock music. The talent of the band’s members can be recognized through the superb playing of the bass and drums and of course the very distinctive vocals. It’s one of those cds where upon hearing it you feel really glad that you bought it and have no regrets. They totally rock!!!

I think Three Days Grace is one of the best bands I have ever heard. There cd is absolutly awesome. Very down to earth songs that people can relate to. I recomend it to anyone who is in the "rock" scene. I can't wait till their next cd come out, I can't wait to see what they will do next.

Pissed off, hurt, insanely energetic, whatever. No matter what you're feeling or who you are, this is a CD that is easy to identify with at any time. Plus, it never EVER gets old or repetitive. Amazing, original lyrics combined with the talent and passion of the band has created an album that has become part of me from the very first time I listened to it.

This album is something for listeners of Lost Prophtts, Linkin Park, and Good Charlette.

Three Days Grace's Album was a surprise hit in my book. They're catchy single "I hate everything about you" prompted me to buy their album and I'm happy I did. With it's infectious lyrics and amazing beats I couldn't take it out of my CD player. You're missing out if you don't buy it!

This is a great cd. Anyone who loves rock will LOVE this cd. It has a great new sound. It is hard to find bands as good as Three Days Grace. There are 2 hits on this cd, but they are certainly not the only good songs. I would recomend this cd to anyone that is older than 13. That is because I do not personally think that anyone under that age is mature enough to understand the emotion of this cd. So anyone over the age of 13, I recomend this cd to you. If you like rock, you will LOVE this band.
