Nickelback Ranked (no, Really)

I'd never plan on doing this normally, but I saw a Nickelback ranked list rand it was terrible, so I thought I'd just make an accurate one. Nickelback rwas the first rock band I listened to (my musical tastes have gone from rrags to riches, in a sense), and I've heard most of their songs. I know what rI'm talking about.
The State

4/5 Solid album, musically and lyrically. "Leader of Men" and "Breathe" were the only hits, but there are some great songs in here. I wish this is the kind of music the band stuck with.

3.5/5 Nickelback's first record. This is practically a straight up grunge record, and I'd say it's on par with Pearl Jam (I'm not a Pearl Jam fan). "Sea Groove" and "Fly" are my favorites on the record. The drumming is really good too.
Silver Side Up

3.5/5 Decent album, probably the last good one Nickelback wrote. Not everything from it is great, but "Woke Up This Morning" and "Good Times Gone" are enjoyable.
The Long Road

3/5 Nickelback started to decline here with recycled BS like "Someday", but there are some good songs on this album, such as "Believe It or Not", "Feelin' Way Too Damn Good" and "Should've Listened".
All the Right Reasons

3/5 Ah, now we're to Nickelback's last 3 albums. ATRR is easily the best of them, if not for nostalgic reasons (first rock record I ever really listened to), then for drumming ones. "Follow You Home" and "Side of a Bullet", are quite impressive from musical perspectives, though by this point, Nickelback's lyrics were basically pulled out of the vaguest strains of ridiculously bad romantic comedies. "Side of a Bullet" at least has some meaningful lyrics, though that's mostly due to the contrast between it and the other songs.
Here and Now

2/5 Well, they tried. I admit, this album had a couple of catchy songs that I'll sing. I love a couple of the guitar riffs, despite them being played only 30 times in the same damn song. But I can find a similar previous Nickelback song to all 11 of the songs on the album, which is quite lamentable. The lyrics didn't improve from Dark Horse either.
Dark Horse

1.5/5 "Burn It to the Ground" and "Just to Get High" are the only half decent songs from this album. Maybe "This Afternoon", but the album was marred watered-down music to the point where everything sounds so perfect and precise that I feel like I'm listening to machines play music (and a lot of what's on here barely qualifies as music).
