The Tribute to 3 Doors Down features a group of faceless studio musicians running through a set of highlights culled from 3DD's two studio albums. It's capable stuff, akin to your average Saturday night bar band. What this means is that Tribute won't blow the doors off of any 3 Doors Down fan looking for something a little different, but it isn't an entire waste, either. At their best, the musicians here get out of the way, and let the songs' strong hooks speak for them. Highlights include "Away From the Sun," and especially "When I'm Gone"; radio hits "Kryptonite" and "Here Without You" don't fare as well.
