Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

1.0 out of 5 stars I need more than a nickel back . . . May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am a teenager, and since this product is marketed almost specifically to the teenage audience, I was immediately attracted to 'Silver Side Up', this sophomore album from NICKELBACK. I thought "Never Again" was pretty stupid, liked "Too Bad" and loved, obviously, that massively overplayed "How You Remind Me". I read reviews that shed positive light on the record, and so I bought it. I was impressed. The songs were all well written and really durn cool . . . or, they were at first. But as time passed, I became less impressed and more annoyed. The songs kind of sounded all too much alike, so it was like one song that was written 10 times and was really durn overrated. Then I quit being annoyed, and the only logical step down was complete and utter hatred for this album. Almost all the songs follow the same disgusting formula:
-Guitar intro
-Verse 1
-the Chorus
-Verse 2
-the Chorus once again
-the Bridge
-Verse 1, sung a second time
-Chorus
-Chorus
And since EVERY SINGLE SONG follows this EXACT SAME FORMULA EVERY SINGLE TIME WITHOUT EVEN A CHANGE IN DYNAMICS OR SOUND AT ALL, it kinda takes the fun out of the song, the album, rock as a genre, music as an art-form, and just life in general. The only song I can listen to and enjoy is "Too Bad", but then I start thinkin "hey, maybe this album aint so bad after all . . ." and I try listening to more songs, which then leads me to an attempt of slitting my wrists with a thin-toothed comb or a mouse pad. My opinion of this record in a nutshell, is: "I need a heck-of-a-lot more than a nickel back for this atrocity."
Which leads me to wonder why I feel so differently about their third release, 'the Long Road'. Hmmmm . . .

3.0 out of 5 stars Stay Away! Look For Better! May 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
OK, to get one thing straight, I usually don't like music that everybody else does because people like stuff that requires no thinking or creativity. And also, I hate this guitar tone. Overall, this CD really disappointed me. All of the songs had really simple riffs glued together by heavy vocals. Overview:
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Rock Music Jan. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm sure most of the 350+ reviews were written around the time this album was in peak period. I think most people get irritated when an artist they like gets so much radio play and thus they get way too negative.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars The good times are gone Jan. 9 2004
By Claire
Format:Audio CD
I bought the album for two reasons; my good friend suggested it and it was cheap at the time. Good thing that it was cheap, because I'd throw it away if it weren't for the 3 or so good songs. Silver Side Up is what I consider a pothole in Nickelback's career, it's just a step or two lower in quality than the other albums that they have put forth.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar!
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 more
