"Silver Side Up" is Nickelback's thirs studio album and their first commercially succesful album spawning such radio hits as "How You Remind Me," "Never Again," and "Too Bad." "Silver Side Up" was certified 6x platinum.
Following Staind's footsteps, Nickelback make the personal public and vent a history of frustration and resentment to melodic hard rock. The band's second album, Silver Side Up, starts with "Never Again," an angry tirade against domestic violence that sheds light on the issue without too much sap or sentiment. The album's catchy radio hit "How You Remind Me" and the song "Woke Up This Morning" tell of rotting relationships, while other tracks touch on damaged hope and lost dreams. The post-grunge, alt-metal combo backing these songs packs as strong a punch as the lyrical material, going hard with lots of hooks. The additional slide guitar on "Hangnail" and sludgy, alt-metal riffs on "Hollywood," "Money Bought," and "Where Do I Hide" add a little meat to the alt-rock bones on Silver, elevating Nickelback above the heap of copycat rockers clogging the airwaves. --Jennifer Maerz

Never Again: 7/10 Not bad. The second best on the album. Flows well. Pretty thoughtful with a set of lyrics that actually mean something, even if what they mean isn't really that good of a topic for me.
How You Remind Me: 8/10 Best on the album. Also flows well, but really simple riffs and very heavy on the vocals. I love the little drum fill he does.
Woke Up This Morning: 6/10 Not so good. Kinda catchy but very glued.
Too Bad: 6/10 Not too bad. Seems to be pretty popular.
Just For: 7/10 Angry. Kinda cool, but could be so much better.
Hollywood: 5/10 Ooh, the pain. It sucks so bad! So stupidly simple. A ten year old could come up with the main riff in this piece of junk. If the lyrics mean anything, then you must have a great imagination.
Money Bought: 5/10 Sooo simple. I could play this sleepwalking in a tar pit by accident. Can't they think of anything better? Yes. Find a different album instead. Still, i can't help but liking the "solo" in this song.
Where Do I Hide: 5/10 Could be worse. (This CD proves that.)
Hangnail: 6/10 dumb, yet mildly entertaining. He plays a good harmonic in the bridge.
Good Times Gone: 5/10 What is this? a country band? Definately NOT my style.
Avoid this album. Amazon is a great place to find all kinds of real good music. Use it to get that music, not this!
This album is great music. I think Chad Kroeger's voice fits the style perfectly. Now that I don't hear these songs on the radio every five minutes I have an even greater appreciation for them when I put this disc in my CD Player. For now the new song "Someday" off Nickelback's new album "The Long Road" is getting quite a bit of radio play but it's ok because THAT song is really a deep and wonderful song. I could listen to it repeatedly and still be satisfied. It's a great song for hopping on the motorcycles and listening to it in the mountains while hanging out with your friends.
Nickelback gives off a great vibe and although this may not be Nickelback's best album, please don't label these Candaian rockers as "Alternative Country Music" because they are far from it. Just gather your friends, chill out, and have a good time.. That's what Nickelback's music does best.
Musically, its just about average with tracks that sound awfully similar to other artists and to other songs on the very same album. Seems a little desperate doesn't it, having to put the same stuff on the SAME album, only changing tempo and lyrics. Speaking of lyrics, they weren't that great either, with the exception of the overplayed radio hit "How you Remind me", "Just For", and the TRULY great last song "Good times Gone." That last song is the best possible ending for the wasted album, giving you hope for a better one next time.
Folks, don't waste your money (unless it's dirt cheap)in going to get this. With this album on the market, Nickelback's reputation has indefinately lowered and the good times of their previous albums have faded away into the past.
1.) Never Again - 10/10 - GREAT SONG.... little rough but very good for it's point.... very good opening song... the lyrics to this song are asome for its point.... once you hear this song you will like it.
2.) How You Remind Me - 10/10 - Yea shure this song was a little over played on TV and on the Radio but hey its still a good song... sometimes the TV and radio turn a good song bad by playing it to much. Thats why I don't listen to the radio that much they run the songs in the ground. This song has a point like most of the other songs by Nickelback.
3.) Woke Up This Morning - 10/10 - Little fast but I like how they put it together ... it's a little hard to catch the point on this one but you will if you really listen.... that's the way Nickelback is you have to (really listen) to there music to get it.... but if you are a true music fan you do that any way.
4.) Too Bad - 10/10 - Nickelback at there best ... this song has a vey good meaning and helps get a point across to some people ... really good song I listen to it almost everyday along with the rest of the CD. If you do not catch the point of this song you have something wrong with out.... in fact if you don't get the point I suggest you do a search on [...] and find out what it means because you need to know... maybe you will wake up.
5.) Just For 10/10 - We are half way through and still perfect :-) ....Read more ›

i love the band so i had to have it and it is good and i love the songs thank youPublished 21 months ago by Amazon Customer
A classic disc that will outlive the pyramids! So much drumming and bass thrumming and vocals that growl away on hurts and spurts and days gone bad.
Such a voice!
As an Albertan myself, gotta love when 4 smalltown boys find a formula for success. Labelled as post-grunge, hard rock, or arena rock, these boys found a sound that works. Read morePublished on Dec 10 2012 by Langer
