Well written, rockin' songs!,
This review is from: Time of My Life (Audio CD)
"Time of My Life" is the 5th album from 3 Doors Down and their first in 3 years. From beginning to end, this is an amazing collection of songs. The production is fresh and crisp, the lyrics are well written, the musicianship is awesome, and the vocals of Brad Arnold sound phenomenal. The cool thing about this is it shows a clear growth and evolution of the band while still maintaining their unique sound and ability to write great songs. Things get started with the title track, a high energy hurricane of pounding guitar riffs and effects that deliver with a sonic boom. "When You're Young" has a catchy melody with strong vocal hooks that draw you right in. "Round and Round" is a blend of guitars and bass that features Matt Roberts absolutely shredding the guitar. "Back To Me" is a power ballad that showcases Arnold's talents as a singer. He sings some amazing melodies that only a few people could pull off, and the result is pure bliss. The album closes with "Believer," a rocking, punk-influenced song that will leave you breathless and asking for more. Overall this is a solid rock/alternative album that any fan of the genre will love. If you liked their earlier music you'll love this one!
