Sound — 10
This album is a masterpiece. The music that has been made is indescribable and nobody can make the wonderful art that they created. The songs have unique riffs from different scales, and a combination of metal songs and lighter rock songs. Many songs combine acoustic and electric guitars. Songs are tuned differently in some songs to give the band different sounds for different songs. There are no filler songs and all of them are very well done.
Lyrics — 10
Adam Gontier's vocals can give you the chills; the way he sings is unbelievable. The lyrics are extremely catchy and they will always have you humming in your head. The lyrics also reveal a lot about Adam's continued fight against his drug addiction and tell the listener exactly what it feels like to have such a serious problem, while incorporating his message into an amazing song. The entire album is meant to give anti-drug use message. While the lyrics sound angry or harsh, they are simply telling the listener not to do drugs due to all of the negative consequences. I believe that Adam's fight against drugs really inspired him to create many great songs, and he also has an impact on the listener. The only word that can appropriately describe Adam Gontier is brilliant.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a fantastic album, nearly flawless. Nobody can sing like Adam Gontier and nobody can create the fantastic music that Three Days Grace has wrote in this album. In my opinion, the best songs on the album are It's All Over, Pain, Animal I Have Become, Never Too Late, Riot, Get Out Alive, Time Of Dying, and One-X, however, all of the songs were very well done. The amazing vocals combined with Barry Stock/Adam Gontier's guitar riffs make this album nearly impossible to beat and see no flaws in the music. If this album was stolen/lost, I would not hesitate to buy another copy. I enjoy the album One-X very much!
