Sound — 7
The sound that Nickelback have achieved for their new album all the right reasons is absolutely incredible, they play most of their songs in cmaj so it's sort of a deep heavy metal rock album. There's only one song that's verry close to a heavy metal cmaj sound and that is the song side of a bullet, but over all I think the sound is absolutely beautiful. The only song in standard tunning on the new album all the right reasons is the song far away which I tabbed on ug. Any in my personal opinion the sound used in this particular album is amazing.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics are a bit more emotional in this album e.g. Far Away, If Everyone Cared, Some-one That Your With, Fight For All The Wrong Reasons, Photograph, the accoustic version of Someday, Next Contestant and especially Side Of A Bullet. Side Of A Bullet was written because Chad lost one of his best mates in a car accident and so that's the reason side of a bullet was written. The only song that talks about dreamin' about becomin' a rockstar is the song Rockstar and the only song that talks about persistance is the song Follow You Home. The music that goes with these songs I think suit it very well because they sound emotional, angry and depressed. I love Chad's singin' voice because the skill you need to get that distorted/grunge sort of sound voice is almost impossible and chad sounds so good when he sings like he does I honestly mean and believe that.
Overall Impression — 10
My overall impression of the album, all the right reasons is hudge and is never gonna decrease mainly because I think in my own personal opinion Nickelback is ten times better than those crappy bands like Led Zepplin and AC/DC. In my personal opinion Nickelback is the best band ever and nothin's gonna' change that. The most impressive songs on the album are nearly every single no infact every single song on the album. 1st of all there's nothin' that I don't like about the album. 2ndly what I love about the album is that the melodies, the intro's and the solo's sound so good. You may not of figured this out but Chad and Ryan have been accepted into the top 20 guitarist in the world and mike is in the top 20 bass players in the world and Daniel is in the top ten drummers in the world. If it was lost or stolen I would definately stop and nothin' just to get another copy of the album All The Right Reasons, I'd do the same for the other 4 Nickelback albums I own, Curb, The State, Silver Side Up, the Long Road and now the new album all The Right Reasons. And they were realeased in the order that is shown.
