3DD's debut album, The Better Life, is the #1 fastest selling debut album of all time. In the first week it was released (02/08/00 - 02/15/00), it sold over 15,000 copies. Thanks to all the fans out there and watch for more records to fall! Tower Records lists The Better Life as one of the Top 1000 albums, Billboard listed 3DD as #1 Heatseeker, and The Better Life is moving on the Billboard Top 200! Once again, thanks to all the fans and 3DD for making this happen!. Lets just hope 3DD continue making great songs, like Kryptonite, and release a second album which is just as successful as 'The Better Life'.
If you do not have his album and you like alternative or hard rock, I highly recommend you getting this CD. It is more than just awesome, it rocks.
What I Think About 'The Better Life':
When I heard Kryptonite on the radio for the first time, I cranked the volume way up on my stereo and just thought about what an awesome song it was. The second time I heard it I knew I had to get the CD, the next day I went to the store and bought it, but that night when I was listening to it I was kind of disappointed with the other tracks on it. But, at less then $10, I didn't really care if there was only "one good song" on the CD.
After I listened parts of the other songs on the CD, I sort of rejected those tracks and only listened to track #1, Kryptonite. Then about 3 months after I bought the album it started to become very popular and one of my friends asked to barrow the CD. I warned him that the only good song on it was Kryptonite, but obviously he ignored me and listened to the other tracks because he told me I had to be crazy because the others were as awesome as Kryptonite.
After thinking about what he said, I went home and listen through the album at least once and played many of the tracks over and over. What I found out was that my friend was exactly right, the other tracks are as good as Kryptonite, with just as much energy. I now like many of the other tracks, but I still think a few of them are just okay, not great. Some of the songs I find especially good are Down Poison, Smack, By My Side, So I Need You, and Be Like That. The only one I don't really like is Loser.
