I bought this CD with the notion of the hit single “I hate everything about you”. After reading several reviews and viewing the video only 5 times, my mind was set on purchasing this cd. A well spent 17.99 at my near by Spec’s on Okechobee, and not to shabby of a buy if I and i MUST say so myself. Three Days Grace puts an extreme amount of emotion and heart into there lyrics. Every lyric on this cd is relative to the hit single, except in the very last and final track. “Overrated”, where Three Days Grace,”TAKES A SHOT”, as Rage Against The Machines front man Zach De La Rocha did in the track “Wake up” off of there self titled cd,they decide to go a little political in this track, which is ALWAYS nice the artist has other views to express besides dwelling on the same lyrics over and over like artists such as Jay-Z. Judging by these lyrics, i think we can definitely tell the lead singer has had personal experiences and we can also take away here-say IMMEDIATELY. Three days grace’s lyrical direction reminds me “somewhat” of alanis morissette’s jagged little pill cd, except the mans point of view. I did say somewhat now. The track that really grasped my feel into these boys is “Home”, a great riff from the “regular”(which is very rare to find these days and still have a slight edge and or more of an edge) guitar and absolutely amazing lyrics, very well written. All in all a very consistent cd, and im already waiting for the next album. Artists like these always make you wonder about the new sound they are to put out for us fans. I think of Three days grace as a mix of 3 Doors Down and Nickeback mixed, with a touch of Linkin Parks edge minus the bass and computers. This CD well then deserves more then 5 stars. Need i say more?

Three Days Grace achieves something most bands wished they could…they just play rock music. There’s no effects, no turntables, no keyboards, no choirs in the background, just a guitar, a voicebox, a bass and some drums. Simple. That doesn’t make them any less powerful to listen to. I haven’t heard a rock mega-hit of such proportions since “How You Remind Me” by Nickelback came out. Now “Just Like You” is getting airplay as well. Both are incredible songs. The entire disc is great from beginning to end. No two songs sound the same, and it’s obvious this band isn’t trying to impress. They just wanna write music that’s personal, and hope that it touches people. Buy this CD if you haven’t already. If you’re into Oleander, Nickelback, and Chevelle, you’ll like these guys a lot.
Hailing from our neighbors to the north, the three young guys in Three Days Grace are the best thing to emerge from the Canadian rock music scene since Our Lady Peace. Bands like Nickelback, Default, Sum 41, etc. just don’t make the cut. But these guys are a totally different story. Sonically speaking, they are the illegitimate children of a fight between the Deftones and, interestingly enough, Smile Empty Soul (another great 3-piece band, check them out also; as well as Flaw and RA…not 3-piece bands), with slight twists of Blindside and 12 Stones thrown in, topped off by a hint of Tool. That may sound strange, but it totally works. The first single off this disc, “I Hate Everything About You”, is a fine choice for a single, as it is fairly radio-friendly, but that’s not to say that the other songs aren’t, as this band is living proof that today’s musicians need not plague their songs with profanity in order to make powerful, emotive hard rock. In fact, upon listening to the entire CD, I found only one use of the “f” word in one song (track number 10, “Wake Up”), some use of the “s” word in another song (track number 12, “Overrated”), and that’s it as far as profanity goes; which probably explains why there is no Parental Advisory sticker on the case. Nevertheless, every song here has potential to be a hit. In addition to the first single, standout tracks include “Burn”, “Home”, “Now Or Never”, “Drown”, and “Take Me Under”. These young guys are great musicians…soaring vocals, slamming guitars, and a very solid rhythm section. From a lyrical perspective, most of the songs start out negative, but usually resolve on a positive note. For the price this CD is currently going for here on Amazon.com and in most retail stores, it is a great deal that any self-respecting rock fan should not pass up. Get it quick while it’s still fairly cheap and before the rest of the world catches on. I’ve got a feeling that these three extremely talented young musicians are going to play a major role in shaping the future of modern rock music as we know it.
This album was amazing. what lead me onto it was my friend liking it, and since he likes to same music as me, i thought i’d give this a try. i didnt like the single they first put out called i hate every thing about you, but now i love it because of the deepness of it. I got the CD and couldn’t put it down. 1.) Burn – great song, amazing chorus. the lyrics stand out more in this song than the rest. 5/52.) just like you – cool song, but grew old fast for me. 4.5/53.) i hate every thing about you – very very good, i can’t get enough of it. 5/54.) home- didnt like it at first, but now its one of my favorites. 5/55.) scared – lyircs are a little…shallow. not deep enough. “i think i hear it creeping, i think i feel it move”. a little immature. 3.5/56.) let you down – my fav on the album. i love the lyrics, reminds me of a vampire cult (lol), but thats not a bad thing. The instruments are played so well in this song. i can listen to it for days straight. 5/57.) now or never – about wanting more from life and wanting to change whats happening in the world. great message. 5/58.) born like this – not sure what its about…but its cool nonetheless. 4/59.) drown – AMAZING. about getting away from a bad relationship with whomever it might be. 5/510.) wake up – has the best line in it, “i must be running out of luck, cause you’re just not drunk enough to f—”. haha I LOVE IT! 5/511.) take me under – about sex? lol. um its pretty good. doesnt stand out, but still a solid song. 4/512.) overrated – very cool. the lyrics are great in this one. 5/5overall, the CD is great, but the lyrics needed a little tweaking. also i noticed that they are very repetative. o well. great bands like Nirvana had repetative songs, but still remained on top of the world. I believe this band will grow from album to album and expand their music into deep and touching themes that will only make them even more greatly accomplished.
1. Burn – a slow, heavy song, a really good introduction to the cd, too. 5/52. Just Like You – Despite the obvious over-playing of this song, its still rather good. 5/5 3. I Hate Everything About You – ugh.. radio ruined this song, as they will most likely do with track 2, but it still stands out as a good song, just one you may have heard too much. 4.5/54. Home – A slower, heavier song, but not quite like ‘burn’. There is, however, a lot of emotion in this song. 4/55. Scared – A faster song on the cd, pretty good. 4.5/56. Let You Down – I dont remember much worth listening to in this song.. 3.5/5 7. Now Or Never – Same as track 6 (this is the ’slowdown’ of the album’) 8. Born Like This- after 2 mediocore songs, things really pick up.. this song RULES. while the verses arent noteworthy, the really heavy nature of the chorus is awesome.. 5/5 9. Drown – Very Catchy chorus. 4/5 10. Wake Up – I dont know why, but i find this to be one of best songs on the cd.. they truly convey an emotion here. 5/5 11. Take Me Under – I dont like this song too much for some reason.. 3.5/5 12. Overrated – A pretty good closing track.. it sounds so.. tired.. depressed, ect.. a good song when youre tired, theres certainly something .. dark about the vocals. 5/5so, despite 3 mediocore tracks, this album more than makes up for it.. a very good album, a few essential tracks makes it more than worth it.
