3 Doors Down have been a band I've followed since their breakthrough hit "Kryptonite." I've always thought they're a little underrated for their talent, though they have had a good degree of success. Two years or so following "Seventeen Days" (a disappointing album in my opinion), the band returns with their self titled album, an album quite a bit superior to their previous effort. While I'll say right off the bat that I don't think there is any particular song on here that is quite on the same level as my favorite songs by the band (such as "Kryptonite", "When I'm Gone", and "Here Without You"), overall to me this is their best album to date on a song by song basis.

It kicks off with an album highlight, the southern fried rocker, "Train." Lead singer Brad Arnold sings "put me on a train mama" to a background of rollicking guitar riffs. This is set to be the next single, and no doubt will be big on rock radio. "Citizen/Soldier" is a song that was released as a tribute to the National Guard last year, and was not originally planned to be on the album. It's for sure a welcome addition though, as it 's also an album highlight. The lyrics work wonderfully as a thank you to those who risk their lives for their country. The first main single, "It's Not My Time" is next, and it does come the closest to capturing that pop rock magic that "When I'm Gone" and "Kryptonite" were able to achieve. Should be the biggest hit off the album, and a great song to add to their list of pop-rock crossover hits.

The album has a slew of ballads to accompany the head bangers, consisting of "Let Me Be Myself", "It's the Only One You've Got", "Your Arms Feel Like Home", and "She Don't Want the World", which surprisingly are all some of the best songs on the album.

Never has 3 Doors Down produced a more polished and reflective album. The first five tracks are among the strongest they've ever recorded. From the opening to "Train," it becomes apparent that this album will be heavier and darker than anything previously written. The singles are solid, and there is a great mixture of slow and melodic tracks along with heavier, more fast paced rock. If you're a 3 Doors Down fan, then this is likely the record that you've been waiting for!

3 Doors Down created a great CD this time around. There isn't a weak track on this album. Many tracks follow the message of "It's not my time". "It's The Only One You've Got" is about living consciously and not giving up. "Pages" illustrates the intimacy of what artist put on the page and the longing for others to relate.

3 Doors Down is my "go to" album when I do cardio at the gym because of the fast paced beat and the inspirational message to never give up.

...I guess I should start off by saying that I'm a huge 3dd fan. They, along with the goo goo dolls and nickelback, are my favorite rock band. The Better Life was a great cd. Away From The Sun was even better, a classic IMHO. Then came Seventeen Days. At first, I was *slightly* disappointed. The singles were gold, but the rest was a little lackluster. After a few spins, though, it grew on me and became a worthwhile addition to my 3dd collection.

Flash forward 2 1/2-3 years later. 3 Doors Down release their self-titled record, and I'm in line to get it the day it comes out. Pop it in my cd player, and...disappointment.

I can't say I was thrilled with the single citizen/solider, nor was I with It's Not My Time, but I was definatly hoping for something more from the rest of the songs. One after another played, and all I could think of was how high my expectations for this new record were. Maybe too high? Perhaps, because after a couple of spins, I'm convinced this is their worst record to date. It certainly isn't bad, don't get me wrong, but given what this band has done in the past, it isn't what I'd expected either.

Those looking for another album in the vein of Away From The Sun will be sorely disappointed, although I'm sure there are plenty of people who will enjoy this record too. For now though, I'll toss it aside, pop in Away From The Sun or The Better Life, and vibe.

(The best buy version features two bonus tracks; Feet In The Water and Who Are You. Both are listenable and go well with the rest of the record)

I've been a fan of 3 Doors Down since their first album "The Better Life". I read the reviews of this release and was expecting another great cd. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. There are a couple of good rockers on this one but overall there are way too many mellow self indulgent tunes. The band has definately matured and grown as people which is great to see. Unfortunately they have lost the fire and real fellinf that made them a great band. They are following in the path of so many bands the come out with such outstanding initial efforts but seem to lose the edge and dynamic but intangible "something different" that made them so appealing. I have read reviews commenting on the improvement in musician ship and it is obvious on songs like Train and Citizen/Soldiers. It does not follow through on the majority of the songs. I've given a brief breakdown below:

Train-good rocking tune, classic 2 Doors Down

Citizen/Soldier-great song with something to say. Best on the cd. Need more like this.

It's Not My Time-ok song-typical top 40 fair-too light & not original-no fire but radio friendly(which does not mean good)

Let Me be Myself-ok tune, redundant top 40 lyrics. Skip after first couple of listens

Pages-better song, actually has something to say, tempo picks-p but they never really cut loose. Brad sings with more feeling than other tunes.

It's The Only One You've Got-another too mellow Top 40 type song (top 40 is not a good thing) Lyrics are good but song doesn't grab you. No fire and feeling doesn't carry over. Another skip after the first few listens

Give It To Me-Good song. Feeling back into the singing. Seems to really sing form the heart. Whole band seems to be involved. Very tight song.
