3 Doors Down from Escaptawa, Mississippi, was formedbackin 1996 and the band rose to national fame with their first single, "Kryptonite", which charted in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The band then signed onto Republic Records and released their debut album, The Better Life, in 2000. The album was the 11th-best-selling album of the year and was certified 6x platinum in the United States. Their second album, Away from the Sun, (2002) continued the band's success; it debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 chart and went multi-platinum in the United States like its predecessor. The band followed it up by extensive touring for two years before releasing their third album, Seventeen Days, in 2005. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum within its first month of release. Their fourth, self-titled album, 3 Doors Down, also debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. And now the band's fifth studio album, Time of My Life sees the light of day.The trackrecords is impressing and the pressureand expectations are high from the audience, recordcompany and the band. The album is produced by the maestro Howard Benson who seldommakes people dissapointed. He's solid as a rock. And once again he proofs what a good producer he is. The album is really nice produced even if there aren't any "think outside thebox"-tendencies. It's what you can expect from the band. A safe album with a lot of good well written tunes that probably will be played a lot on the american rock radio. Brad Arnoldraspy voice isgood as usual and is perfect for this type of modern rock and the sound isslightly heavier on a part of the songs. Overall a safe buy if you enjoyed their previousalbumsand if you for some weird reason missed them I can tell you that if you have bands like Nickelback and Creed in your collection this is aband for you to check out. Not the best 3 Doors Down-album to date - it doesn't beat the superb "Away From The Sun" album from 2002. neither the debut, but it sits on the same high level as the two latest album and that means a really good modern rock album.
