Biography

When it came time to choose an album title for the follow-up to Three Days Grace’s 2006’s platinum-certified One-X, the four band members thought the phrase “life starts now” summed things up pretty well. “The new album is basically a commentary on the last couple years of our lives,” says drummer Neil Sanderson. “Things have been fairly traumatic for ...

Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the Canadian rockers. Three Days Grace has built a dedicated and ever-growing fanbase over the course of two Platinum albums and years of touring in North America. Since their formation, they have had multiple smash hit singles on Rock radio and videos that have received extensive play on Fuse, MTV2, and VH1. The band returned to the studio this year with producer Howard Benson (Daughtry, Seether, and Theory of a Deadman) to craft what will surely be their most accomplished album to date. This eagerly anticipated release is certain to please longtime followers while getting Three Days Grace even more attention from Rock music fans everywhere. Jive.

Customer Reviews

I believe any Three Days Grace fan will feel the same, feeling that the long wait since One X was well worth it.
A. Tackett
I haven't stopped listening to it since it was released and definitely recommend this album to anyone who has an appreciation for good music.
A. Harris
Life Starts Now has a more mature sound than their other albums, but still brings everything that makes this band great.

It's been 6 years since the release of their Platinum selling Self Titled debut, and these guys are still going strong. Around the time of their second release "One X", everyone wondered if these guys could actually top their first album.. and we all know the result of that.. yet another Platinum selling album, followed by a live dvd, which was also great. Come 2009, we have their third release "Life Starts Now" an album I thought, would be almost impossible, after an album like "One X"! Surprisingly, I'd say, this album isn't up par with "One X", But different altogether. More solos can be heard this time around.. different, but good! The first single "Break" starts off with "Billy Jean" like beats, but then it literally breaks into signature 3DG riffing.. amazing bass work in this song. I saw the video the other day, its way too polished with all the good boy hair do's, & a funny concept.. all paint flying around.. but i couldn't stop laughing when I saw Barry Stock in a Pink suit.. anyways, back to the album review.. this is a more mellow album, if compared to the last two albums.. but in no way short of quality ~ "World So Cold" is like a testament to 3DG's past efforts, its pure 3DG style rock from start to finish! "The Good Life" is like this albums "Riot". Album highlights would be the tracks "No More" (its got one of those choruses that just stick in your head) & "Last To Know" (good piano work building up to a strong climax) The rest of the album is just as good, like I said, not on the same pace as the last 2 albums, comparatively more mellow.. but on its own its a great 3rd effort! Right now the song "Without You" seems to be stuck in my head, I just love the way it starts and the solo towards the end. All in all a great album from a great band who never fail to surprise!Read more ›

Its been 3 years since the last album, and this new one has not left me disappointed. I can honestly say that there is not one song that I dislike. Sure, there are some that I like more than others (that's natural), but unlike other albums by other artists, where I skip through the songs I don't care for, I have listened to this one straight through at least twice a day since it came out last week. I believe any Three Days Grace fan will feel the same, feeling that the long wait since One X was well worth it.

From the unrestrained passion and angst singer Adam Gountier wraps around every syllable on "Life Starts Now," the first record from Three Days Grace in over three years, it's clear the band's time away from the spotlight was put to good use.

The album doesn't go as nail-bitingly deep as some of their past work but still has its share of above average songs. The tracks are sequenced excellently, unraveling in clipped, fast-moving fashion.

Lead single "Break," which crashed into the Hot 100 at no. 91 and is receiving regular rotation on rock stations, is actually one of the non-highlights with its subpar lyrics, at least in comparison to the better tracks like thoroughly awesome opener "Bitter Taste," which rocks, sways and affects deeply. Gountier sounds righteous and absolutely compelling as he sings the words of contempt ("Your name, your face is all you have left now. Betrayed, disgraced, you've been erased.") and cleansing ("I have escaped the bitter taste of you.")

"Lost in You" could rack up some major radio play if it becomes a single, and while its song structure and lyrics are a little trite and predictable they come off as genuine. The same goes for "Someone Who Cares" and "Without You," which are supported by some of the best playing on the album. The results are smooth and precise but still compelling.

"World So Cold" is memorable with its particularly impressive chorus and Neil Sanderson's spot-on drumming, and the terrific "No More" also haunts with an awesome riffs that mark the beginning of the song, even if the song longs for a more restrained, quiet vocal performance than Gountier delivers.

Yet another excellent album from one of the best hard rock bands out there! "Life Starts Now", produced by the great Howard Benson, shows how much the band has matured over the years since their first album, not only in lyrics, but also in their instrumentals and song writing. The drums/guitar/bass are all a lot more intricate and complex this time around with numerous guitar solos throughout the album, including lots of different effects and tones, which is a nice change for 3DG. Adam's vocals sound as great as ever, especially on the moving track "Last To Know", which also features piano, a first for the band.
This album may take a little longer to grow on some fans, as it is softer and has some more ballad-type songs but overall it is great to see them mature and evolve as a band, without losing their sound.
Definitely worth picking up! 3DG is one of the few bands out there who consistently release solid albums, front to back!
Some of the standout tracks are: Last To Know, World So Cold, Break, Someone Who Cares, Bitter Taste

Does Amazon sell edited/censored music or is it unedited?
Not completely true, Stormy. Only if a CD is parental advisory is it edited. However, if it has coarse language-- just not enough to be PA, it is not edited. For example: I bought Disturbed's Indistructible there, un-edited.

Jewel Case?
Amazon also sells the thin paper one. But I think it's released in a jewel case outside of the US.
