Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's never easy following up a multi-platinum success, but Canada's Nickelback's latest seem sure to match the sales of the many-million-selling Silver Side Up. The formula remains pretty much the same--nothing fancy, just radio-friendly grunge that lends an appropriately dramatic backing to the powerful and increasingly confident voice of Chad Kroeger. Aside from the fast and punchy opener "Flat on the Floor," the tough, staccato "Because of You," and the Oasis-like "Figured You Out," the band deal exclusively in soft-rock anthems (soft, that is, by 2003’s pulverizing standards). The only real change here lies is in Kroeger's lyrical concerns. Where 2000's The State found him suffering the frustrations of small-town life, now he's tortured by a heavy touring schedule that promotes destructive drug abuse and strains relationships to breaking point. That said, you can't help feeling the ruthlessly analytical Kroeger would turn a visit to the supermarket into a riot of hatred and self-recrimination. For fans of Silver Side Up, Nickelback have delivered the goods once more. --Dominic Wills

5.0 out of 5 stars A canadian rates fellow canadians March 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am the biggest critic for music and tend to review the c.d before buying it so when I picked up this c.d without getting the reviews I was a bit apprehensive but the wondering payed off! The long road is not their best c.d to date, but if your looking for good guitar rifts, wicked vocals and songs to screm along to then you have found your safe haven! The first single from the c.d - Someday is probley the weakest one of the bunch so don't assume the rest is along the same lines. Figured u out and Do this anymore are by far the best and Saturday night will have you rockin along with the band! The rest rocks and I have unfortunaly not been able to get the songs outta my head for sometime now! Pick it up NOW and maybe well your there grab Silver SIde Up by far the best c.d to date! Oh and try to catch them in concert! Definatly worth the hard earned money!Canadians rule!

2.0 out of 5 stars as long as they sell the records... June 29 2006
Format:Audio CD
Did anybody else read Michael Smith's review? What a loser, geez if u don't like it then jus give it a bad rating and say it's crap, but going on about how music is a journey 4 u and how u enjoy beating the bush 2 it and all that crap no1 wants 2 hear. yes nickelback is formulaic but they found a formula that sells. i only kno 1 person that actually enjoys nickelback and his name is mark nelson and even he knos all of nickelback's songs sound the same. nickelback's earlier work will sound almost exactly the same as their later material.

I agree with Alex on one thing for sure and that is that "Do This Anymore" is by far the best track on Nickelback's new album. "Someday" is a touching song, but falls short of the drive and passion behind "Do This Anymore." "Another Hole in the Head," "Figured You Out" and "Believe it or Not" are great tracks abundant with aggressive guitars, inovative drumming and topped with the unique vocal mix that Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peak have made the band's trade mark sound. "Throw Yourself Away," "Because of You" and "Should've Listened" are lyrical gems; and, "Fellin' Way too Damn Good" and "See you at the Show" are easier listening with a smoother sound for the less heavy listener.
I've loved Nickelback since day one and am very glad they have come this far. Another album like "Curb" however might not be the way to go Alex. "Curb" is great, don't get me wrong, but something more along the lines of "The State" or "Silverside Up" would be a safer choice. "Curb" is not for everyone (it's much harder than any of the other albums and never leaves the same effect on me as one of the other three) nevertheless a worth while album for true fans. I'd love to see them release some of their Hesher recordings that are impossibly rare.
The Album as a whole is solid no doubt and Nickelback should be very proud of this accomplishment. The band has come a long way and almost always on their own save for fan support and other key people and certain bands along the way. I hope that after touring in 2004 the guys take time away from everything, just breathe, and come back to their music fresh and ready to go on another great ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars smells like jealousy... Dec 28 2005
By Smoo
Format:Audio CD
Sorry Mike, you are wrong. Nickelback rocks. Yes they are commercial, but bands are supposed to make money - duh! And I bet your girlfriend still likes Nickelback but says she doesn't so she doesn't have to listen to you rant and rave. Why would someone who isn't jealous go to the trouble of writing a 10 page review slamming a band???

2.0 out of 5 stars Melody Needed !!! July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Nickelback is just an above average band.. i know , many would disagree.. but its true. Some of their songs r very good ..but just some ! many songs have the same sound !! I have to say tht Nickelback Needs Melody in their music !! There r no moving ballads and no excellent acoustic numbers at all in all their albums ! i wonder why ? The only great point abt Nickelback is...without any doubt .. Chad Kroeger !! hes a fantastic singer with a great range and a captivating voice !! He shud better go solo !! Nickelback fans plz dont mind... but this is true..they r not making good music despite 3 albums or so !!
If u want to hear some great music .. Listen to the band REVIS !! and they will make u forget nickelback (ofcourse not chad )!! Give a try to REVIS !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Nickelback still sucks! Feb. 1 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
These Creed-like hacks represent everything that is wrong with rock n' roll today. They dish out a bunch of crappy tunes, put on a big show with explosions and haul in the dough. I'm sure the drummer was glad he got kicked out of the band. I read an interview recently where he said he was fired by the manager with the explanation that "his heart wasn't in it". No wonder! The poor guy was playing in the crappiest rock band ever to hit planet Earth. I'm sure he's happy to pick up his royality checks from this swill and glad the nightmare is over. This band's music should filed under "crimes against humanity". If you want to hear a real hard rock band who were true artists, do yourself a favour and buy a Led Zeppelin album.

5.0 out of 5 stars F****** AWESOME!!!!!! Jan. 16 2004
By Teresa
Format:Audio CD
These Vancouver boys out-did themselves with this cd!!! As far as I'm concerned, all of the songs are hits. Each one hits you with its meaning. All 11 tracks are edgy. I never get tired of hearing it!! I really look forward to hear more of these talented guys!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pounding!
Plenty of throbbing guitars and pained vocals with just the right amount of frenzied drumming. Great production values and, as expected, a lack of quiet introspective lyrics. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Nickelback`s best
Many consider later albums superior, but this one remains exclusively canadian. Later efforts are co-penned by Mutt Lange.. not bad, but the band definitely sold out. Read more

These are stunningly and embarassingly bad lyrics. Trouble is, they are better than the music. :+0
