    Less polish and more attitude are welcome changes that fire up the rock numbers and give them more snap. [8 Oct 2005]
  2. Entertainment Weekly
    75
    They're exploring a richer, more diverse sound. [28 Oct 2005, p.84]
  3. All the Right Reasons doesn't so much pick up where 2003's The Long Road left off, but damn near replicates that album in whole.
  4. Mojo
    40
    Fans of relentless riffing may be sated, anyone else will be left feeling a little awkward. [Dec 2005, p.98]
  5. All the Right Reasons is so depressing, you're almost glad Kurt's not around to hear it.
  6. Q Magazine
    40
    Like the rock equivalent of an SUV, All The Right Reasons is huge, polished and ultimately pointless. [Dec 2005, p.155]
  7. Like all Nickelback releases before it, All The Right Reasons was made for all the wrong ones and follows all the formulas and clich├ęs you should be bored to death of by now.

    Nickelback what can you say the song Far Away is awesome and the Photograph was just perfect to start off promoting the album. The only thing Nickelback what can you say the song Far Away is awesome and the Photograph was just perfect to start off promoting the album. The only thing I didn't like is when they were promoting it on the plane flight from east coast to west coast they didn't play much from the new album and that Seemed wieird but they still are the best. and I also loved rockstar song it's a tag off from see you at the show but still was a bit funny.

    To the negative critics of this band and album: take a good hard look in the mirror and ask yourselves what you have done with your lives so To the negative critics of this band and album: take a good hard look in the mirror and ask yourselves what you have done with your lives so far. And spare me the cliched responses. Wishing you all the success with your small and pathetic existinces critcising other peoples' work and success. Still its easier than doing something yourself. Bon Chance ! Christoph Expand

    Total Shit! They just recycled old changes and used them for new. Like driving a broke-down chevy.

    hi, i'm sorry, i just see only two extreme sides to the argument. and almost no middle.
    now, i know my review suggests i'm not in the middle
    hi, i'm sorry, i just see only two extreme sides to the argument. and almost no middle.
    now, i know my review suggests i'm not in the middle too, but at least let us give credit where credit is due.
    first of all, chad kroeger is an amazing singer.
    great capabilities, and great presence. - that much is true.
    other than that, we are definitely talking about one of the most horrible bands in recent years.
    absolutely no originality whatsoever.
    lyrics that are obviously trying to get 13 year old boys and girls excited.
    talking about wanting to be a rockstar? i mean, since when did intelligent thinking lose its weight in music evaluation? and the most predictable lyrics i've ever friggin' seen, no depth, no nothing!
    about the playboy mansion and fifteen cars.. aren't these guys in their late 30's by now? is this for real?
    it is borderline retarded! and just thinking that someone (EVER) compared this band to pearl jam or other bands as such makes me wanna vomit..
    my god people.. listen to words by eddie vedder.. actual depth.. his no poet.. and he does slip into cliches now and again.. but he has substance.. this has nothing.. bad rhymes with the catchiest melodies they could think of!! you know why certain melodies are catchy?? cuz you friggin' heard them before a million times!! in fact, you heard them on the last nickelback album!!
    i would seriously reconsider my friendship with any person who claims he likes nickelback. this album, and for that matter, their body of... um.. work.. is an insult to human intelligence.
    its fine when you are 12-13, i mean, it is eye level with you and it is exciting.
    but this is no music for grown people.
    this is eye level to them becuz nickelback think like twelve year olds.
    btw - the first time i heard nickelback was "hero" which is not exactly nickelback, but same same.. and i remember thinking - this is a bit too popy.. but there is a sleight chance there is something behind this band... TOTALY **** WRONG
