Nickelback has always been great at making ballads but I’ve always thought they really hit the mark whenever they went back to the roots of hard rock and just made a song about sex and drugs.
Animals and Figured You Out are two examples off the top of my head that Nickelback really seem to shine on.
Anyway, this time around I didn’t really like their ballads or the single ‘Gotta Be Somebody’. I think the best song on the album is Something In Your Mouth. S.E.X. and Next Go Round were also good if I remember correctly.
Overall I think they could’ve done better but Something In Your Mouth is good enough for a few years since I don’t really follow Nickelback.
You should get Eminem’s new album Relapse when it releases in Q1 of ‘09. I can’t fucking wait for it.
