Sound — 10
Nickelback have come a long way since The State, Silver Side Up, The Long Road, etc. With Silver Side Up going 6x Platinum from one track and All The Right Reasons having the same success with already six of the singles already on the radio Nickelback have become the most listened to band of all time. The sound of the new CD which was released in a lot of stores mainly Target stores is incredible. It included all of the normal tracks and more. The greatness of the new version of All The Right Reasons is enough to drive you crazy. If you have the original CD like me and you love it why not go and get the awesome newly-mastered (re-recorded with better quality and more features) Special Edition version?
Lyrics — 10
No lie Nickelback have always been something else with lyrics. Let's take Photograph for example obviously you would say 'Look at this photograph, I laugh at it all the time.' and the lyrics are 'Look at this photograph, every time I do it makes me laugh how did her eyes get so red, and what the h*ll is on Joey's head?' More often than not most pictures taken you get red-eye so that goes along with it as well. The lyrics for Savin' Me, Animals, If Everyone Cared, and most of all Rockstar are remarkable and will be stuck in your head for months to come.
Overall Impression — 9
Nickelback have been an extremely incredible band for fourteen years now. The most impressive song by far on the album is Rockstar but my favorite is Far Away and Follow You Home. If it was stolen I'd get it again and make sure I had a copy. I listen to my copy everyday and so will you. Also the only downside to this is that they just released their same CD not much of a difference but still we are all anticipating Nickelback's all new release of their new CD in December 2007! They are still with Roadrunner Records. This CD just buys them some time.
