  1. Less polish and more attitude are welcome changes that fire up the rock numbers and give them more snap. [8 Oct 2005]
  2. 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. 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. 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 clichés 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.

    If only they would just fall over and die. They are no better than an emo band, except at least emo admits their pussy
