11 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Amid cavernous soundscapes, raging guitars, subtle harmonies, and trembling slow burners, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger pushes his voice in various directions, singing about bank robbers (“Get ’Em Up”), herd mentalities (“Edge of a Revolution”), astral projections (“Million Miles an Hour”), and unironic love sickness (“Miss You”). Both “What Are You Waiting For” and “Satellite” are overtly optimistic and inescapable hookfests. There’s even a nod to classic rock (“Sister Sin”), while “Got Me Runnin’ Round” features horns and rapper Flo Rida. Nickelback’s eighth album will appeal to aurally adventurous fans who favor big hooks over anything else.

Stop hating on a good band.

Anyone who says all of Nickelback's songs sounds the same clearly doesn't have a good ear for music. I'm not saying that you have to like them. Just give it a chance. If you hate it, fine. Just don't be a dick about it. I love the bands' work and "Edge of a Revolution" is one of the better tracks they have had lately. I challenge anyone who constantly criticises this band to make something better. At least it's original.

Album Overview

1. Million Miles an Hour: a loud rock song with fast tempo and loud vocals
We Know about Edge of a Revolution and What Are You Waiting For
4. She Keeps Me Up: An electronic slow pop song with intense melody
5. Make Me Believe Again: An extremely ominous rock song that is similar to Gotta Get Me Some
6. Satellite: A Semi slow pop song with melodious vocals just like Lullaby
We Know about Get 'Em Up
8. The Hammer's Coming Down: a loud fast pop song with noticable melodious vocals like you never heard from Nickelback ever before
9. Miss You: A mix of rock and pop in this one with its pop like vocals and its rock like tempo and rithym
10. Got Me Runnin' Round: Sounds completely like a pop song you would hear from someone like Ariana Grande with a rapper added
11. Sister Sin: Similar to Miss You but with a syncopated tempo that will make you tap your foot as you hear it

Awesome yet again

I’ve only heard 30 seconds of each song, and of course the full versions of Edge of a Revolution, What Are You Waiting For, and Get ‘Em Up. Each song is very unique and the diversity of the album is really obvious. Anyone who says all Nickelback sounds the same is crazy. I believe this is their best work since All The Right Reasons.
