One-X was met with generally mixed reviews. The Toronto Star complimented the album with a review title of "One CD worth buying..." and focused on its lyrics, saying, "The lyrics really speak out to you, especially if you're going through a tough time in your life." Allmusic reviewer Corey Apar praised the music, saying it "remains catchy despite its lyrical darkness". The album did receive some negative criticism. Apar pointed out that Three Days Grace is "hardly innovative" in their approach to writing music and that "further distinctive qualities" would help the band separate itself "from their alt-metal peers".

Album ArtEdit

The cover depicts a string of connected paper dolls with checkmarks on all except one of the figures, in which this represents the album's title. On the inside, the CD tray shows all red fish, except one black fish. This same image is also on the Animal I Have Become single cover. The lyrics are shown in the album booklet.


Before One-X was released the band previewed some numbers from the upcoming album on several occasions. They played four of the new songs, including "Animal I Have Become" and "Never Too Late", at the H.O.P.E. Volleyball SummerFest in Ottawa in July 2005. "Animal I Have Become" was released as a single and received substantial airplay before it was released with One-X. Previews for four of the tracks on One-X can be found on Three Days Grace's Online Trading Cards. Tracks that can be previewed are "It's All Over", "Pain", "Never Too Late" and "Over And Over".
