3 Doors Down: Away From the Sun

Overall Impression — 8
This record is damp in power chords and catchy riffs. Look no further than the first single "When I'm Gone" for an example. The rest of the album is very similar with a couple of ballads. But the rest is straight up and southern served good 'ole rock and roll. "Ticket To Heaven" could very well be the next single, but then again so could "Dangerous Game"; a catchy blues based song that features some catchy power chords in the choruses. "Changes" expresses a mood not caught by many of the teenies who bought "The Better Life" to hear "Kryptonite". "Changes" expressed the frustation of being on the road and alone at night thinking of home. This is a good record overall. Catchy and moody is the best to describe it; and very upbeat. Overall I give it a B- for a terrific sophomore release.
