"Curb" is Nickelback's debut album released in 1996 and a crucial part of Nickelback's chart topping history.
To borrow from Chad Kroeger on the Spider-Man soundtrack, when it comes to the fortunes of his band Nickelback, he's not going to stand there and wait. Neither, evidently, is his label, management, or anybody else likely to turn a buck while the Vancouver-based band is hot. Nickelback's rise--at once maddening and thoroughly unstoppable--is by now the stuff of Billboard legend. True, they shamelessly cop from Creed--themselves stylistic thieves of the highest order--but as they say, a million people can't be wrong. Originally released in Canada in '96 and now making its domestic debut in the U.S. along with a Canadian re-release, Curb is exactly what you'd expect from the band that brought you the ubiquitous "How You Remind Me," except on a tighter budget. Tortured vocals dominate the foreground while cymbals crash and metallic guitars scream in the balance. Kroeger is hardly alone in his belief that the only way to convey emotion is to holler himself hoarse (see also Creed, Our Lady Peace et al.). Yet as grating as Kroeger's vocals are (oh, and they are), you've got to give Nickelback credit for taking a single, simple, and utterly dog-eared idea--paint-by-numbers hard rock with angsty vocals about thankless chicks--and squeezing out every last bit of juice. Come back Pearl Jam, all is forgiven. --Kim Hughes

My coworker accidentally bought this CD thinking it was new material. While not horrible enough for me to insist she not play it, it is extremely repetitive and dull. Read morePublished on Feb. 4 2004 by J. Lane

Curb is great, but their work(s) only get better with time, work and age. There is no better than these guys, but if you like Curb, you will love The State, Silver Side Up, and The... Read morePublished on Sept. 25 2003 by Lori R.
