    Really? Worst album? You don't listen to much of the music that's out there these days do you?
    congrats to them. I haven't heard much of their new album but have heard The Good Life and it's pretty good. Last 2 albums rocked, im kinda late but gonna check this one out
    Well deserved accomplishment. This album really shows how they have grown both musically and as a band. There really aren't any 'misses' on this album and if The Good Life is doing this well then I can't wait to see how well Lost In You will do since it appeals to a much wider audience too. Great band, Amazing album
    i agree its not the SAME as previous albums however, it is still a very good album by most standards
    Worst album to Date but Best Single since I Hate Everything About You!
    This new album was horrendous. I'm sorry, I applaud the effort to change directions, but it was just a horrible album.
    Ehh...sounded too close to previous efforts, they tended to regurgitate much of the same musical styles and lyrics. Wish they'd attempt to explore different areas and putting more thought into their lyrics, because honestly, I keep hearing the same themes over and over and in the same vein or perspective. However, I'll give Three Days Grace kudos for putting on a great live show on May 2nd.
