Album Review: Nickelback: Here and Now

Here and Now

Two Steps forward and one step back. Like I said in a previous post Dark Horse was a solid album. To back up that point I listened to it again so I still have it somewhat in my head. I won't say this is shit, because it's not but Darkhorse a superior album. Whenever people rag on Nickelback I always assumed they only listened to a couple of singles. In particular, "You Remind Me" and "Someday". Alright I'll admit they're similar, but the band's changed over the years, not radically or anything, but they're last couple of albums have included more fist pumpers, But overall this album feels like a step backward into The Long Road days. Don't get me wrong Darkhorse had a bunch a ballads but it felt more balanced than Here and Now.

Beyond that. It's an alright album. It's not revolutionary, but Nickelback has never been a revolutionary band. If you get that and go into the album with the right mind set it's enjoyable. However if you hate Nickelback this album is not going to change your mind.

At the end of the day I'm going to say what I always say with controversial bands. Listen to the album with an open mind and then make it up.
