It's hard to escape your roots, especially when you've grown up in the South. For Third Day, it's never been truer than on Time, the band's third release and the first to openly embrace their Southern rock traditions. While producer Monroe Jones coaxes a somewhat softer-sounding Third Day in this pleasing effort, the band still rocks hard for the most part. "Took My Place," for instance, is a Southern-fried rave-up powered by the twin guitars of Mark Lee and Brad Avery paced by the gritty vocals of Mac Powell. Yet Third Day also lessens the blows, as with the poignant ballads "I've Always Loved You" and "Your Love, Oh Lord." Fans will get the best of both worlds in the loose, rootsy "Don't Say Goodbye," one of the album's best moments. Time captures a band maturing and owning up to both its spiritual and musical legacy. --Michael Lyttle

Third Day comes of age

"I can start by saying that this is one of the best CD's I have ever owned, Christian or secular. As Third Day comes to the point of recognizing their southern roots they will only get better in my opinion. The third installment "Time" creeps closer to that southern tradition. The upbeat little diddy "Don't Say Goodbye" has southern all over it and the bluesy ballad "Can't Take the Pain", really hits the roots. Combine these with the traditional pounding rock tunes "Believe", "Took My Place", and "Never Bow Down", you have a GREAT "Rock" album that spreads the WORD of JESUS very, very well. What also makes Third Day great is the fact that they are content to let the music as well as the words shine through. So many christian artist concentrate completely on the message, that they loose the music. I commend Third Day for being able to do both. Bottom line, Christian or not, you will enjoy this album. Real fans also want to get a copy of a 4 song CD "Southern Tracks". Visit Third Day's web site for details."
Third Day's talent is finally being recognized

"I liked their first CD (Third Day) much better than their second (Conspiracy), but I certainly did not regret getting the third (Time), because this has turned out to be the best, in my opinion. If you did not like Conspiracy, don't you dare let that keep you from getting this one."I've Always Loved You" is so great that this song by itself made the CD worth buying. This is the only Third Day song that I seem to hear on the radio, but hopefully this will attract people to realize how great the rest of their songs are. Soon, Third Day's talent will be recognized. They have come a long way since they performed at Cornerstone several years back."Your Love Oh Lord" is a great worship song... and yet, the lead singer's voice maintains his awesome deep and strong voice in it, especially when he sings "like the mighty mountain!""Believe" is a pretty hard song, but perhaps not quite as hard as "Consuming Fire" from their first."Can't Take the Pain" is a great song about Peter. ("Thief" from their first album was a great song about the thief who died on the cross next to Jesus.)All the songs are great... and the music gets better and better the more you listen to it, not the other way around. This is by far their best yet. I hope my review has been helpful!"

"Okay, after hearing the Conspiracy #5 album, and slavering over nearly every wonderful track, I have to admit that I was left leaning forward during my first listen to this album. I wanted the banging, relentless sounds of "Gomer's Theme" in there somewhere. However, as I listened to it again (and again) this album grew, not on me, but in me. One of the best bands ever, and you can flame away on me for saying it. I would have paid full admission for "Give" alone. Plus the absolute rock-solid Christian message, and it's still catchy! Whooda thunkit? Simply put, this album is a gem."
