Release Date: 2006 | Tracklist


I got this album in the mail last week and have been listening to it on and off ever since.
But I must say I am a little disappointed in it, though there are momentís of brilliance it is an average album by a band who I think could do a lot better.

The first song Itís All Over is one of the better of the album, the vocals really make this song, while the guitar isnít to fancy it proves to be a good solid opener.

Pain is the next song and it doesnít really do that much for me. The backing vocals going ďPain" every line during the chorus doesnít help me like this song either, getting really annoying after a few listens.

After Pain comes my favourite song on the album.

Animal I Have Become is the first single and by far the best song. I canít find anything wrong with this song (if only all the tracks were like this).
Catchy bass riff starts the song off then the guitar and drums come in followed by the vocals.
The chorus ďSo what if you can see, the dark inside of me, no one would ever change this animal I have become" is damn catchy and just makes me want to sing along.

Track 4 and we go into acoustic guitar verses and blasting choruses. Never Too Late reminds me of their last album in many ways and is a good listen.

On My Own is pretty weak but as soon as it gets to the chorus it makes up for what it lacked in the verses.

Riot is another good song on the album. ďLets Start a Riot" is the message in this song. Itís about not being treated right and rising up against it.

Get Out Alive is the last really good song on the album and has beautiful guitar and vocals which makes it one of the best on the album.

Let It Die, Over And Over, Time Of Dying and Gone Forever are all ok songs but I really cant get into them at all.

The last track One X, the title track for the album, is nothing new but is a nice solid finishing song. I piratically like the end part of the song with the chant ďStand Above The Crowd"

Over all I think itís an average album and they could have done better, but I still recommend you check it out, if only for a couple of the songs.

This is honestly one of the worst reviews I've read in quite a while, if only for the lack of detail. You need to write a lot, lot, lot more in general for your next review.

Yeah this review is horrible. Zero to no detail sans for Animal I Have Become, which is the song most have heard. You should take some time on your next review, alot more than you took on this.

The only song I've heard is the only one you described decently. So I didn't really gain much here...

The review wasn't great, but I disagree with many things you say. The four songs you can't stand are really good songs. I really enjoyed this album.

These guys are beyond corny. I used to like them, but I actually listened to some of the first album today and I don't like any of what I used to, save "Wake Up", which is just about the only good song.

Well, you'd think after taking quite a break they'd be able to put out a better record than their last abomination.

He does that. He'll throw out the name of a few good reviewers, and then suggest his own at the end. Subtle. Admirable.

this is my only 3 days grace album, and the first ive heard. And im not exactly dissapointed. IMO, if you can get into a band like Seether, this shouldn't be too hard to enjoy. Considering the beginning of "Animal I Have Become" can be compared with the beginning of Remedy. I think its a bit above average. But still worth some listens. But the low for me, would have to be how unoriginal the lyrics are.
And oh yeah the review could use some work. But you already knew that.
