The first time I heard Kryptonite was 1 of those 4 times (for those who care, the other 3 were: Shine by Collective Soul, Push by Moist, and Cold by Crossfade). To this day Kryptonite is still one of my favorite songs.
There is really not a bad song on The Better Life. Sure, maybe some to the lyrics are not the most inspired and, like most any album, there are some weaker songs, but really, this is top notch effort - one that, imo, was not matched in any of 3 Doors Down later releases.
My favorites songs: Kryptonite, Loser, Be Like That and Down Poison
If you are a fan of the alternative/rock genre, this is a great album that needs to be a part of your collection.
