Review: 3 Doors Down – Kryptonite (Rock)

This review covers the rock track 3 Doors Down – Kryptonite.

This track was released in 2000. It was released on the album The Better Life.

The track starts with a more acoustic guitar sound. This is followed up by a snare rich drumkit element. After that, the track builds up with vocals and electric guitars.

While the verses tend to drift towards the more soft rock side of things, the chorus’ have a more energetic rock sound. A feedback sound is used right before the main chorus takes place.

There is also a guitar solo with a brief appearance of the vocals. This is followed up by a chorus before there is a second guitar solo. This final solo is backed by some vocal elements, but builds up to end the track.

The vocals are pretty well done. There are some high energy and low energy moments. This helps give the track range and flow.

The lyrics, meanwhile, have themes inspired by the Superman franchise (as the title certainly suggests already). It has emotional themes that revolve around seeking reassurance.

Probably the biggest strength in this track, however, are the guitars. When they hit the high energy, the track really takes off in my view. The solo portions really make this track worth listening to. The vocals do add to the track, but I’m not convinced they are the tracks biggest strength. The mastering is also nicely done.

Overall, this is an alright track. The guitars are definitely the best part about it, though other elements do give the track some dimension. I think the vocals are decent and the lyrics are interesting. While this track certainly has some good overall vibes to it, I wouldn’t call it anything super amazing. Still, it’s an alright track to listen to.

Score
7/10
