Despite their new drummer, the album doesn't have any huge difference from their previous release The Long Road. Rather than start this album from where The Long Road left off, it pretty much makes a duplicate. The songs don't really have any distinctive quality, either. Often you get the feeling that this band is just plain derivative, instead of adding their own twist to things.

The songwriting here is nothing special. The rhyming includes "photograph" and "laugh", "cared" and "shared", "lied" and "cried", "rockstar" and "car", among other things. Why didn't these guys just spend a little bit of their time with a rhyming dictionary for better ideas? Instrumentals are quite unimpressive, even with a drummer who proved himself talented in 3 Doors Down. It also seems like cliche is the middle name of all of the Nickelback members.

In the end it seems All The Right Reasons was made for all the wrong ones. Which is a shame, because some of the lyrics are actually quite meaningful. It's just that their badly written and boring. Overall, skip this one and look harder for the rare good modern hard rock band.

I actually liked If Everyone Cared, Savin' Me, and a few others back in the day. Truthfully, they're still pretty solid, enough to compensate for the other crap. This is like a 2.7 for me.

The first song is probably the best, I have to agree with you when you say that the drumming catches you off-guard. A few other of the songs are catchy/listenable, but a lot of them are just terrible. Just, so terrible. But not an awful album all in all. I really used to like these guys when I grew up.
