Transit Of Venus
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Though that title suggests Three Days Grace to be astronomy buffs, it doesn't show in the music. Dreamy space pop, this album clearly is not. Rather, it's another well-chiseled slab of post-grunge choking on negative energy: relationship strife ("Operate"), psychic alienation ("Chalk Outline") and, of course, inner rage ("Misery Loves My Company"). Sonically speaking, the Canadian quartet has tightened up their attack considerably. This is a good development, as it further differentiates them from the likes of Daughtry, 3 Doors Down and Cavo, all of which are heavy on the power ballads.
