Review Summary: The album that made Nickelback the biggest band in the world witht their radio-friendly mix of Rock and Pop.

0 of 12 thought this review was well written

Nickelback became the quintessential post-grunge band with 2001's "Silver Side Up." While the only real source of mainstream pop was "How You Remind Me," the contemplating closer, "Good Times Gone," showed that the band was finding itself melodically. 2003's "The Long Road" showed a transition to mainstream hard rock and even metal, despite the Top 10 ballad, "Someday." However, it is 2005's "All the Right Reasons" that prove the guys are huge enough to take huge risks. Songs like Side of a Bullet", "Next Contestant", and "Animals", are fist-pumping anthems with peculiar story lines, ranging from recklessness with weapons, an unfaithful girlfriend told through the point-of-view of a rock star, and human beings with no morals, values, or shame. But what got everyone talking about the album was Nickelback's softer sound, with violins, pianos, and acoustic guitars. The power ballad, "Far Away", is as much of a Nickelback standard as "How You Remind Me", showing the band's ability to make their fans scream one song, and say "I Love You" to their girlfriends the next. Epics like "Photograph", "Savin' Me", and "If Everyone Cared" focus on universal topics like days gone by, the Higher Power, and world peace, all the while making Chad Kroger's lyrics and voice more believable than ever before. Whether hating then for sounding more pop than rock, or... just because they're Nickelback, you can't deny the Alberta rock superstars know exactly what they're doing: giving fans what they want while still breaking new ground.

Okay, chill out man. 1 review a day at the most. 2 is acceptable, but 3 in a row seems like you're getting to a point where you're on such a roll that you are just gonna keep submitting until you made the same mistake I did of posting 7 reviews in a row in one day. It pushes other people's reviews down is all, and it forms this big block on the front page where it's only your name, it looks bad.

I think we can all agree that any other Nickelback album is better than Dark Horse, even if it's not
by much.
