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

Okay, so I first heard them on the radio way back when...found out I liked them and went to the store to buy their CD. The problem was, it wasn’t out yet. So when I got home that day I decided to look around on the Internet and found the 3DG player. I was listening to like four songs of theirs for weeks. When the CD finally came out I bought it the first day and let me tell you...It has never left my CD player. They ROCK! I recommend this CD to anyone and everyone. Another bonus about them (which is good these days) is that they sound AWESOME live!

This album is great start to finish. Each song has deep lyrics, great vocals and amazing instrumental arrangments. "Just Like You", "(I Hate) Everything About You", and "Home" are tracks most teens can relate to. "Just Like You" is about being yourself not like others in society. "(I Hate) Everything About You" is about a love/hate relationship in which you love something but realize how much you hate it. It is a great track to listen and blast to release anger from a recent break-up. "Home" is about being fored to live in a house where no one cares about you. "Scared" is a great song with the guitar grabbing your attention from beginning to end. "Let You Down" is similar but it is the drums that grab your attention the most in the beginning of this song about deception. All the tracks are guaranteed to make you want to blast your music and get into it. Whether it is the mesmerizing vocals, guitar, bass or drumming you will not be able to put this cd down. This is one band that you cannot ignore.

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.

The first time I saw the music video "I hate Everything About You" I knew I had to get the CD. As soon as I got the cd my cousin told me that one of the band members was our cousin. I was like that's the coolest thing ever. To like a band so much and then find out your related to one of them is really cool. I had never met him until I saw him at the concert. If you like one song you'll love the rest. If you like the cd you'll love their concert. When comes down to it all they are a rockin good band.

The Three Days Grace c.d. is really worth the cash!!1 Each song contains a great rock sound but has a different aspect to it. Everyone could find a specific song to relate to.
