3 Doors Down - 3 Doors Down

3 Doors Down, un altro ottimo album dalla brillante rock band dei 3 Doors Down. A giudicare dai primi due brani pubblicati 'Citizen/Soldier' e 'It's Not My Time', entrambi basate sul tema dei soldati impegnati a combattere la guerra in Iraq, ci riporta immediatamente alle canzoni del loro primo album, che riprendevano anni fà lo stesso increscioso tema, e musicalmente parlando invece, segna un ritorno indietro al loro suono originale. E se il loro primo album fu una vera sorpresa, questo - sulla stessa falsa riga - non dovrebbe deludere.

Questo quarto disco intitolato solo, 3 Doors Down, offre la più forte raccolta della loro carriera, e per fortuna loro, abbandona il sound 'mainstream' dei dischi precedenti e riconducibile a band come (Nickelback e Puddle Of Mudd) anche se (vedi la vita) il batterista Daniel Adair è entrato nei Nickelback, sostituito da Greg Upchurch, venuto dai Puddle Of Mudd).

Nonstante gli scambi di batterista il disco suona hard al punto giusto. Già l'iniziale 'Train', spara duro e anche le già citate 'Citizen/Soldier', 'It's Not My Time', 'Give It To Me' sono sulla stessa riga. Il primo momento di pausa è con 'Pages', una ballad intensa e coinvolgente. Nel complesso un album pulsante e pieno belle melodie e di energia.

Testi di 3 Doors Down

3 Doors Down, "3 Doors Down" (Universal Republic): Fist-pumping arena rock is a favorite target for critics, who remain somewhat baffled as to why these bands continue to fill major venues and play upward of 300 shows a year. Truth be told, the post-grunge scene sounds increasingly bland and repetitive — making it hard for any band of that genre to stand out.

On their self-titled fourth disc, 3 Doors Down offer the strongest collection of their career, and fortunately separate themselves a bit from the mainstream rock crowd — think Nickelback and Puddle of Mudd for clarity (coincidentally, former drummer Daniel Adair left to join Nickelback and his replacement, Greg Upchurch, is a former member of Puddle of Mudd). 3 Doors Down maintain their fiery mix of southern hard rock and bic-lighter ballads with pulsating energy.

There's no denying a slew of arena-ready standouts, including the muscular "Train," the uplifting "It's The Only One You've Got," and the 80s-ish charm of "Runaway." Lest we forget the hard-rockin' ladies, they're sure to fall for the soft touch of "Let Me Be Myself" and "Your Arms Feel Like Home."

The band also hits a grand slam with lead single "It's Not My Time," a track that's already dominating rock radio with its ridiculously catchy riff and crowd-pleasing chorus. 3 Doors Down aren't going to win over any harsh critics with this effort, but they probably have another platinum seller and sold-out tour on their hands.

CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: Disc closer "She Don't Want The World" is a moody tale of longing backed by minimal guitar and slick overdubs that sounds nothing like 3 Doors Down, who should try branching out like this more often.
