On February 8, 2005, 3 Doors Down released their third studio album, Seventeen Days. Interestingly enough, this album was released on the fifth anniversary off their debut album, and managed to hit number one on the Billboard 200.
The first single for the album wasn't actually put out until Valentine's Day 2005, and that was "Let Me Go." This is one of those songs you've more than likely heard at least once in your life. Though that stands true for most of 3 Doors Down's hits, this one is rather bittersweet. He's asking someone to let go of him even though they love him. Problem is, he feels they don't really know him that well, which weakens the connection.
A track we really wanted to mention isn't a single, as far as we know, but we definitely remember hearing it places as well. That track is "Be Somebody", and its fairly obviously all about being yourself. The chorus flat out says, "'Cause I'm trying to be somebody, I'm not trying to be somebody else. This life is mine, I'm living." That's something we stand behind completely!
The last track we wanted to talk about was "Never Will I Break", because its basically a pep talk to himself to face things he was previously scared to do and stay strong. Its just a beautiful track, and could probably encourage others to do the same.
Over all, its a wonderful album, and we're very excited to announce that this review completed the 3 Doors Down discography for Immortal Music!
