Alright, we all agree that the first album (The better life) was absolutely amazing. And while this album is good (theres no denying it) the one sound that made three doors down unique is not so prevalent in this album. The unique vocals of three doors down, the sound that made you sit up and take notice of this new band, are just not here. But, having said that, it's still a good album, but is no more special, or stands out, from other alternative rock albums! So, buy it! good listening, but don't expect too much!
