I know there are Nickelback haters out there but to that end I have to say "Chill out"! I love Nickelback for those times when you just want to listen to some banging rock that you know is going to deliver in execution. Yes there are alot of good rock bands out there but most of them need alot of packaging & fuss; Nickelback doesn't. They are like a rock band that you could just call the boys up & say "Hey I'm having a Barbee 2night; can you come over & provide the tunes for us! Gulp, gulp!

"Gotta Be Somebody" has some great hard guitar work; bar style but this song has great lyrics.....but don't tell me Chad can't find a lady out there. If that's the case we all need to band together & find someone for him! Lots of takers I'm sure! Ha! Ha!

"Never Gonna Be Alone" is such a well written love song....how do they keep writing great ballad/rock songs like this? That's a gift. I also love that growly, gritty tone to his voice. No it's not some perfect voice....& that's exactly why his voice works. People used to say the same thing about Neil Young's voice....& it sure as heck hasn't hurt him any.

"I'd Come For You" is another great heart touching ballad/rock song. I have to say that although I'm sure Chad gets alot of the attention because he is the lead singer for the band & rocks this song so well but the thing I notice more & more with Nickelback is how tight the band is as a unit. All the guys rock it great in this band & I can't imagine any of them not being there together taking us out of our weekly working funk to get us ready for the weekend! "Add a couple of more olives please!" Ha! Ha!

"Just To Get High" is such a great song for anyone who has had a friend that has had any type of substance abuse problem. So well written.....

After the huge succes that was "All The Right Reasons"(2005) you have to wonder how Nickelback or any band could continue and release another album without deceving anyone.I admire the band for not rushing to make another album after such a success,they just took their time and made sure the album was good before releasing it and in my opinion it was worth it."Dark Horse" is released three years latter and after listening to it many times I can say that it's a really good album,I don't think it's their definitive album but I'd say that it's well worth it.I didn't think they could make something this good but they did,I didn't expect much of it so I was pleasantly surprised.

I have to say first that not a song here sucks,some are better and will be remembered more than others but I think they all have something that makes them each special and likeable.You get the heavy songs,the ballads,something to please everyone much like any Nickelback album.I like their previous album All The Right Reasons but I tought that they lost some of their edge present on earlier albums on that one."Dark Horse" is similiar to it but it's less poppy and it's more edgy wich should still please both.The thing about this album is that it's a lot more sex oriented(songs like "Animals" and "Figured You Out were like that)with songs like "S.E.X","Shakin'Hands" and "Something In Your Mouth" wich may offense you or may not.

1. Something In Your Mouth : The opening track of the album is possibly my favourite,I love the energy,the riff great,everything on this track works 5.5/5

2. Burn It To The Ground : Very strong song,strong energy pretty much like the song above,classic rock!5/5

3. Gotta Be Somebody : The first single,good beat,I like lyrics a lot check them out.

This was a little disappointing. The vinyl wasn't mastered with enough depth taking away the impact of the bass drums. The upper end detail is also weak. Even though the vinyl has a little more dynamic range than the CD, the latter sounds much better because of the added depth and a little more detail with the cymbals. The vinyl itself was fairly quiet but there definetely was some surface noise in between tracks.

"the only thing that could make me feel worse about my life would be to play bass for nickelback." -- Mike Jackson, actor, "Trevor" on Trailer Park Boys.

As if Nickelback weren't bad enough on their own, here comes Mutt Lange to "polish" their sound! The result is an album that -- guess what! -- sounds like a cross between Nickelback and Def Leppard. Don't believe me? Check out those "HEY"'s on "Shakin' Hands". Lifted straight out of "Pour Some Sugar", but without the fun.

In fact this is one of the least fun album about beer and chicks that I've ever heard. Kroeger's overwrought, over-serious singing style makes this one tedious listen. I've never heard a "party" band take themselves so seriously before. Even Metallica don't take themselves this serious.

The lyrucks are a nauseating mix of cliche after cliche, stripper after stripper, beer after beer. But without a wink and a smile, like David Lee Roth used to do. This time, nobody's laughing.

Worst songs:
"Something In Your Mouth" (how can a band write such stupid lyrics? With rapping?)
"This Afternoon" (a pretty dour sounding party)
"Shakin' Hands" (Nickelfunk?)
"If Today Was Your Last Day" (self-important overly-serious tripe)

There's a reason Nickelback are considered the worst band going these days. This album is it.

No stars.
