Risking to be late at work, I have decided to write this review as some of the 2- & 3-stars reviews are not doing the justice to this very solid album from one of my favorite band out there. To be fair, the originality of the band's first two amazing albums (Three Days Grace & One X) is somewhat lost here. Their 3rd album "Life Starts Now" is a little bit weak, in my opinion, but still a very good work. This one that just out is a great example how the band evolved, matured, still remaining to be the band I hooked up on when they released their 1st self-titled album. In one word, "Transit of Venus" is very melodic. Every song of it, period. There are standouts here like the single "Chilk Outline", "The High Road", "Anonymous", "Expectations", "Broken Glass", and the best song (again, in my opinion) "Unbreakable Heart". It is not heavy at all, even a bit "softy", but I still can tell, this is the Three Days Grace. This is one of those albums that you can listen to without pressing the rewind. All the way through... then hit play again.
I am usually very picky about sound quality. No complains here. Although it is not a Japanese release (I'd wait until it is released in Japan with bonus tracks as their previous albums), it does sound extremely well.
Buy it. You won't be disappointed!

Ok so I hardly ever review albums but I felt I needed to review this one. I like a lot of rock and metal music. I like 3 days grace and I really liked their first stuff. It seems that most bands these days that get played on the radio lose their creativity and start to just spit stuff out to appease the masses every year and get paid but this album was actually pretty good. I didn't give it 5 stars because it wasn't just like I couldn't stop listening to it, but I do enjoy the album and most of the songs are enjoyable and I like listening to it quite a bit still. Most albums coming out these days have 1 or 2 good songs and the rest are just filler to fill up the disc space, not this album. This album is a solid rock album with good lyrics, some good ballads, some catchy songs, and still creative! I say it's a worthy album of owning if you are into this type of band and genre.

Transit of Venus by Three Days Grace starts off with a terrific set of three songs, but then the good songs are a bit more spread out. It is named so because there was a transit of Venus in 2012, in June I think. That's when Venus comes between the earth and the sun. `Sign of the Times' is great, it's real great! `Chalk Outline is good as well, and it's the main single of the album. `The High Road' is for sure my favorite song of the album. The chorus is so addicting and I love everything else about it as well! In my opinion, the only part of `Operate' worth listening to is the guitar. It is a decent song to listen to when I haven't heard it in a while. The chorus of `Anonymous' just sounds like guitar slamming, drum bashing, and screaming. It's not a bad song, I'm just picky when it comes to rock music like Three Days Grace. `Misery Loves My Company' is one of my favorite TDG songs, it is great throughout the whole song. `Give In To Me,' originally by Michael Jackson, is a great song in general. Three Days Grace added some hard rock, and it works very well; I love it! `Give Me A Reason' and `Time That Remains' are not quite as hard rock as other songs, and I like them; they are in the better half of the songs. `Expections' grew on me, and now I like it. I probably don't give enough credit to `Broken Glass' as well as `Unbreakable Heart.' They are good songs, and I don't listen to them enough.
Maybe you got the impression that I only liked about a third of the album, because that's the impression that I had before I wrote this review. It's actually better than I thought it was, when I listened to it all the way through for the first time since I bought it. I don't regret buying it. Actually, my purchase of Transit of Venus convinced me to get One-X and Life Starts Now.

ONLY gripe I have is that they didn't send me the album in the classic plastic casing but then again I don't think they do that for any albums nowadays. This CD though is probably one of the better CDs you can own and 10 more years from now its gonna be a classic and join the family with other great old records. Many of these songs will catch on and make you drop what your doing to really pay attention to em, on the first listen. While there are some that may take a couple more listens to really appreciate, songs like "Chalk Outline" and "Unbreakable Heart" are gonna become all-time favorites. Highly recommend this album to everyone.

I'm not sure if my opinion will be helpful to a larger scale of people, but to those who enjoy Three Days Grace, I'd definitely recommend supporting them and buying their new album! I love it! I have always loved Three Days Grace so I pre-ordered the album before it was even released and know all the words to all the songs now! TDG FOR LIFE!

After the fan favorite "One-X," "Life Starts Now" came as somewhat of a disappointment to some fans. Not everyone enjoyed the new things the group was experimenting with, and I see the same thing happening when I see reviews for this album. The only difference is people are focusing so much on Adam's lyrics and vocals. A lot of the complaints are that the songs sound generic and that Adam seems to have lost his edge. My response is this: you can't expect someone to be that sad all the time. I understand my best music comes when I'm sad or depressed, but I don't want to be in that dark of a mood 24/7 just for the sake of making better music.

The reality of it is this, what made Three Days Grace so amazing in the past was just how deep and relatable the content was. So yes, to a certain extent the group has taken a minor step back in that category. You can't deny that Adam doesn't sound as strong as he has in the past, but isn't this where it gets interesting? Now that he's finally getting rid of some of his demons isn't this where we start to see what he's really made of? And not just that, what about the rest of the group?

Everyone keeps putting so much focus on Adam like he's the entire band. Are we forgetting about Barry, Brad, and Neil? I don't know about you guys, but I've always loved Barry's guitar work. In my opinion whenever I felt Adam's lyrics started getting a little weak on here, that's when I found that the rest of the group started picking up the slack. You can't forget that there's three other members in this band.

I'm even seeing some people go as far as saying they're becoming the new Linkin Park and that's an insult. Linkin Park completely changed their sound and you barely hear anything from Rob, Brad, and Dave in the new albums.
