AllMusic Review by

It's My Life + 3 closed out the Animals' original French EP releases, grouping the title pop-style hit with three songs culled from their second U.K. long-player (which showed up in France around the same time as The Animals, Vol. 2). The best cut here is "I Believe to My Soul," a killer showcase for Eric Burdon's voice and Dave Rowberry's piano. "I'm Going to Change the World" sounds like Burdon's own rewrite of "It's My Life," and no one minds the return trip in these circumstances -- and "Let the Good Times Roll" returns you to the band's roots.
