Review Summary: Not many albums can change your life. This is an album that can change your life.
Nickelback; what can't be said about them that hasn't already been said by someone? Chad Kroegar could be the most talented vocalist of modern day music. He can do everything from singing to shouting, whilst shredding his guitar like a metal god! They really are a fantastic and brilliant band. Originality seeps out of every lyric and riff. They have paved the way for other metal bands to follow and flown the flag for music in general. This album is their latest offering and quite possibly, their best. Here is the review and why the album is so good:
1.This means war - Right from the start, Nickelback absolutly blow you away with their opening song. Excellent all the way through. 5/5
2.Bottoms up - The riff in this song is the most original riff i've heard in my whole life, and I am old. Please listen to this!! 4/5
3.When we stand together - This song let me down when I first heard it after the brilliance of the last two. But after another listen it clicked and I now realise the genius behind it. 5/5
4.Midnight Queen - The lyrics in this song cut really deep. Don't listen to this if you are emotional. 4/5
5.Gotta get me some - Another song that let me down, but it didn't get any better for me after that. Skip this one. 2/5
6.Lullaby - Wow. Just Wow. Defiantly the best song i've ever heard. 5/5
7.Kiss it goodbye - I never realised how talented the drummer was until I heard this. Excellent song 5/5
8.Trying not to love you - When people think of Nickelback, there is no doubt that they are a talented band, but are they cabable of pulling off a song like this? Damn right, but not the best song. 4/5
9.Holding on to heaven - Again this song is not for everyone, I skip this one but you may not. 2.5/5
10.Everything I wanna do - When I first heard this song it took me away to a very dark but wonderful place. I hope it gives you the same feeling 4.5/5
11.Don't ever let it end - Now this could be the ultimate metal anthem. I wouldn't be surprised if this was played at big events like a royal wedding, or a game of tennis. Brilliant ending to a brilliant album. 5/5
Overall I was very shocked when I heard this. My friend who loves all types of music like Slipknot and Korn recommended these to me. And I'm so glad to have them as my friend. Now I give this brilliant album to you: the Sputnik users. Buy it and listen to it. God bless.
