Editorial Reviews

Multi-platinum selling and award-winning recording artist THREE DAYS GRACE is set to release their fourth studio album entitled TRANSIT OF VENUS on October 2nd on RCA Records.

The Canadian band embarks on new creative ground with TRANSIT OF VENUS, recording for the first time with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Bullet for My Valentine), at Revolution Studios in Toronto. Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace comments on the musical direction of TRANSIT OF VENUS: "We went for a tighter, more articulated sound on this record. The music we were writing was a little more intricate than in the past, and we've been experimenting with new instruments. We wanted to present these new ideas concisely without going over-the-top in ambience and overall production."

THREE DAYS GRACE has enjoyed massive radio and sales success, having sold over 6 million albums in the United States alone. Their previous album Life Starts Now (2009) debuted at #3 on the Billboard album chart and spawned three #1 hit singles ("Break," "The Good Life," and "World So Cold,") at rock radio formats. "I Hate (Everything About You)," the breakthrough single from their debut self-titled album (2003) had a stronghold on the active and modern rock charts for over 47 weeks. That success followed with their sophomore release One-X three years later which yielded three massive chart-topping singles "Never Too Late," "Pain" and "Animal I Have Become," all achieving the #1 spot at rock radio formats. "Pain" and "Animal I Have Become" were also awarded BMI Awards in 2006. In addition to winning two BMI Awards, the band has received a Billboard Music Award (2006 for Best Rock Song "Animal") and two Juno Award nominations for Best Rock Album and Best New Artist.

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!

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.

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.

I have this cd since the day it went on sale but today I have heard again and I decided to write this review has to say that for me this cd is just ok and nothing more. There are times it gets boring but always returns to the bench with a good song. This album lacks the strength they had in their previous work, especially the first two. In short, for me, an album not to hear many times in a short time or it can bore me

Excellent all the way through! A great CD. Very melodic songs with some really great style changes, great guitar work and percussion, as well as an excellent bass line. Vocals are awesome. Very happy with this CD. If you like this, you may like Candlelight Red and Smile Empty Soul's newest release.

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.
