In 2013 DDRIVE was hard at work on their follow up to the critically acclaimed album 3D which was released in the summer of 2010. The band has never been one to rush a project as they believe the quality of their recordings is more important than the number of releases.

In the midterm, the band has just released this retrospective album to introduce a whole new generation of rock fans to their brand of rock n roll, while giving their loyal and steady followers an album of classics and a taste of what’s to come. “Critical Mass” consists of music recorded between 2004 and 2013 and features 2 bonus tracks, a newly re-recorded acoustic version of “I’m A Little Outside” plus a brand new song called “Ten Things I hate the Most”
