3 Doors Down - Better Life [CD]
  • Genre: Popular Music
  • 3 Doors Down - Better Life [CD]

Performer Notes
  • 3 Doors Down: Brad Arnold (vocals, drums); Matt Roberts, Chris Henderson (guitar); Todd Harrell (bass).
  • Additional personnel: Kevin Paige (keyboards).
  • Recorded at Ardent Studios, Memphis, Tennessee.
  • "Kryptonite" was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song.
  • The success story of 3 Doors Down starts typically enough. An aggressive and unrelenting phone campaign to radio stations for their breakaway single "Kryptonite" snowballed into a showcase at New York's legendary CBGB's and a deal with Universal Records. The Escatawpa, Missouri quartet offers a sound that is grounded in '90s alternative rock but doesn't ignore the contributions of hard-rock music's foundations from the '60s and '70s.
  • "Loser" finds 3 Doors Down using Alice In Chains-influenced minor-key vocal harmonies and acoustic-then-electric dynamics. In "Duck and Run," vocalist/lyricist Brad Arnold urges fans to remain positive despite life's trials. The delicate balance of human relations is explored in "Not Enough." In "Be Like That," Arnold sings of a daydreamer's envy, sounding like a heavier Matchbox 20. Though the band began as a power trio, with Arnold on drums and vocals, 3 Doors Down added a second guitarist and a drummer to fatten its sound for THE BETTER LIFE.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (6/2/00, pp.78-9) - "...Shows the boys have assiduously studied the Metallica/Pearl Jam/Creed oeuvres. At its swaggering best, LIFE crackles with energy and crowd-pleasing choruses..." - Rating: B-

Q (12/00, p.136) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A bolt-together Stone Temple Alice in Pearl Jam's Soundgarden hybrid....this is rock for people who wear woolen muscle vests and worry about hair products..."

Matthew Heere on
Great songs are few and far between sometimes and this album has its fair share of them form the song Krypyonite right through to So I Need You the first song i heard was amazing its all so the first song on thios album (Krypyonite) every other song has that classic style rock sound behind it and it shows in every song get this into your cd collection now.
Brendan Timbs on
The first album from these Canadian rockers sounds a lot like most of the post-grunge music that was coming out in the early 2000's. Reminiscent of Matchbox 20 and Creed, this album has some great radio hits including Loser and Kryptonite. I really enjoyed this when I first got it but I've grown a bit tired of it now, especially seeing as all their stuff sounds the same.
