Don’t tell rock band 3 Doors Down you can’t go home again.
Formed in Escatawpa, Mississippi, the resilient fivesome has blazed a trail as the quintessential rock band, attaining massive mainstream success but somehow never losing that small town identity that has branded them rock’s truest underdogs. They’ve reigned as a genuine force of nature, boasting rock ... Read more in Amazon's 3 Doors Down Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Rock Album September 19, 2003
By Aaron
Format:Audio CD
Very rarely do I like this kind of music. Yet 3 Doors Down do it so well, it's hard not to like it. They can manage to sound hard with a rock edge, yet manage to maintain a melodic pop quality to their songs. The lead singer may be in a rock band, but he has a great voice and doesn't have to resort to screaming.
"The Better Life" was good, but I think this album manages to top it. "When I'm Gone" has been the massive hit thus far and has become one of the biggest radio hits of the last year. It's been overplayed, but it's still listenable. The title track "Away From the Sun" is a definite stand-out track. It's slow, but I'd love to see it as a single...great chorus. "The Road I'm On" is one of the harder tracks and was the second single. "Ticket To Heaven" is another catchy rock/pop track that would make a good single. The star of this album is "Here Without You" definitely. Already proving to be a huge radio hit, it's a fantastic rock ballad and very relatable. "Changes" and "Dangerous Game" are ok too. "Sarah Yellin" definitely stands out from the other songs with a more serious vibe.
Overall, great album. "Away From the Sun", "When I'm Gone", "Ticket To Heaven", and "Here Without You" are the key tracks that make it wortha 5 star rating. The other songs are good and listenable, but these jump out at you. If you liked "The Better Life" there's a big chance that you'll like "Away From the Sun." Similar content and great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really just an awesome cd! December 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Now this cd is overall slower than The Better Life, but that doesn't mean its worse. Like they say in the DVD. there is much more production put into this one. The lyrics are all very good and express a lot of different feelings through the cd. Here is what I think of each song:
1. When I'm Gone - 8/10 Good song, nice solo. Pretty catchy
2. Away from the Sun- 9.5/10 The second best song on the cd, really some great stuff here
3. The Road I'm on- 8/10 One of the harder songs on the cd, good song
4. Ticket to Heaven - 10/10 - The best song on the cd, awesome music awesome lyrics, an all around great song
5. Running out of Days - 8.5/10 - Another very good song, but not the best of the cd
6. Here without you - 9/10 One of the slower songs on the cd, great lyrics.
7. I Feel You - 8.2/10 Another very good song, catchy
8. Dangerous Game - 9.9/10 Another great song, starts slow but then picks up, really awesome chorus
9. Changes - 7.5/10 starts really slow song, not the best song, but still very good
10. Going Down in Flames - 8/10 Once again, another good song.
11. Sarah Yellin' 8.5/10 - A great way to end the cd, some good guitar riffs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome December 23, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To take a CD like "The Better Life" and make a sophomore album off of that fanbase is a very difficult thing. I, being a previous 3 Doors Down fan, was severly awaiting the release of this installment for my collection for a long time. When, finally, I heard the song "When I'm Gone" on the radio for the first time, I knew the wait had not been in vain. On "Away from the Sun" they use "When I'm Gone" and then their title track to intensify the album right off the start. Then they go from track to track, mixing it up from an almost ballad-like song, "Here without You" to harder songs like "Dangerous Game" and "Going Down in Flames." All of the songs have the catchy and addictive nature that ruled their premiere and have a much more mature nature to them. Simply Awesome

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid power chord band October 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I own many of the tracks from this CD which I purchased from iTunes. I had the opportunity to see 3 Doors Down and Our Lady Peace in San Francisco, I went there to see Our Lady Peace, but I was very impressed with 3DD. They put on a fantastic show and their sound was very solid. Great tracks on this disc, if you like what you've heard on the radio, you'll probably enjoy this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant December 23, 2002
By vlad
Format:Audio CD
While Kryptonite keeps being their best song ever, Away From The Sun has enough material that's as much brilliant as most off their first album.
When I'm Gone, the first and successful single from the new album, attracts the attention from the very slow beginning and makes itself highly memorable thanks to incredibly catchy chorus. The signiture style of 3DD and their songwriting talent are both here and leave no noubt the guys happily go on with creating a good music.
The lyrics are their strong side, as before, and this time the words do a lot to help liking most of songs on the Away From The Sun. Really meaningful, thought-provoking, and not so depressing.
Going Down In Flames could be their next single, very easily, since that's one of their catchiest tunes from the both albums. This is almost a pop song, but in the best sense.
The list of other stand-outs would include: Changes, Here Without You, The Road I'M On, Dangerous Game, and, surely, This Time, the hidden track.
The rest is still good, but rather sounds usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than 'Better Life?' February 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've already reviewed this disk, but I haven't given the track by track rundown that I'm so darn good at. Here we go:
1. WHEN I'M GONE (A-): Strong opening track and first single. Really embraces what this band is all about.
2. AWAY FROM THE SUN (A-): A great interpretation of mellow rock. This is a great road tune.
3. THE ROAD I'M ON (A): This song is skitzo! Humble verses, and an aggressive chorus. My favorite on this CD.
4. TICKET TO HEAVEN (A): Almost too good to be 3 Doors Down! It should have been the closing track.
5. RUNNING OUT OF DAYS (B-): Still good, but this song feels a little boring compared to it's predecesors.
6. HERE WITHOUT YOU (A): Be Like That was the softie on their first album. Be Like That wishes it could be like this.
7. I FEEL YOU (B+): the band's sound has fallen into a consistant
8. DANGEROUS GAME (B+): More country, better rock. I can see a Western shootout to this one.
9. CHANGES (A-): depressed to the point of anger/psychosis. Another Jekyl&Hyde song like track 3.
10. GOING DOWN IN FLAMES (A): this song is the fastest but also most melodic. This is a good sounding band.
11. SARAH YELLIN' (C): This one is the hardest. effects are cool, the bridge is too, but the rhythms get a little annoying.
12. untitled (D): might as well have left this one off. slow, dull, and now we know we won't hear anything like Kryptonite again. (but this is a good thing.)
