  • Summary: The rock band releases its fifth album, which features a song used by the National Guard.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 6
  2. Negative: 0 out of 6
  1. Taut musicianship, well-crafted songs and potent vocals make this a landmark album in an already multiplatinum career.
  2. 3 Doors Down--the band and the album--won't be breaking any records with this release, but they have produced a solid, if not spectacular, collection of a dozen tunes for their fans, who have been waiting two years for something new.
  3. Much of the pop-metalers' fifth CD is overwrought. [23 May 2008, p.122]
  4. That's the ultimate irony of 3 Doors Down as they mature: try as they may to pour out their angst-ridden hearts, by riding out their success and smoothing out their music they've turned into mildly aggro background music at malls and movie theaters across the nation.
  5. The lack of specificity has also been a 3 Doors Down hallmark and that blankness overwhelms their decidedly unflamboyant, often dull fourth album.

    On their self-titled fourth album, one colon-blowing mid-tempo after another shows the strain.

    Absolute Raw Energy and Emotion. 3 Doors Down has finally gone back to their roots and somehow improved upon them. Pages may be the best song Absolute Raw Energy and Emotion. 3 Doors Down has finally gone back to their roots and somehow improved upon them. Pages may be the best song they have ever recorded, and none of the other songs disappointed. This is an album that needs to be listed to LOUD in order to fully experience. It will leave your jaw hanging... Expand

    Through out the years 3 Doors Down have been getting softer, but thankfully for the fans who want rock, 3 Doors Down has come back alive with Through out the years 3 Doors Down have been getting softer, but thankfully for the fans who want rock, 3 Doors Down has come back alive with this album. This may not be "the" album, but its a step in the right direction with the bands rockin sound and masterful lyrics. It has powerful rockin tracks such as Pages and Citizen Soldier, fist pumpin tracks in Train and Its Not My Time, to increadibly deep tracks such as Your Arms Feel Like Home and She Don't Want The World. This album will not please all critics, but it is definitely a worth while one if you are a 3 Doors Down fan or just an average Rock n' Roll fan. 8/10 Expand

    The Hartford Courant is pretty accurate in their description. It doesn't have much noticeable artistic growth, though it's another The Hartford Courant is pretty accurate in their description. It doesn't have much noticeable artistic growth, though it's another solid set of songs. If you know you like previous 3 Doors Down music then you will probably like this, but it's not likely to draw new fans. Expand

    I split my vote between what I would give the album (5) and against expectations (7) of how I thought this rather simplistic rock group would I split my vote between what I would give the album (5) and against expectations (7) of how I thought this rather simplistic rock group would make more music out of the same notes. And to tell you the truth, the band did a decent job, which culminates to about 4 or 5 solid singles. But let's be serious here, it's still a band in a box. Expand
