Sound — 8
The guitars sound as if they were recorded over 20 years ago and recycled for this, Nickelback's first major-label album. Even though the guitars sound old, they still sound cool. Not enough guitar solos though.
Lyrics — 6
The lyrics are okay. Some of the rhymes are kind of cheesy. Either that or there really is some meaning behind those.
Overall Impression — 6
In the long run, I don't think this was Nickelback's best effort. This was an okay album, but Silver Side Up and The Long Road are a lot better. I would reluctantly buy it again if it were lost or stolen.
