  • Summary: The Canadian alt-metal outfit returns with a self-produced fourth album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 9

  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. All the Right Reasons is so depressing, you're almost glad Kurt's not around to hear it.
  5. Despite all their newly developed relative nuances, Nickelback remain unchanged: they're still unspeakably awful.
  6. Like the rock equivalent of an SUV, All The Right Reasons is huge, polished and ultimately pointless. [Dec 2005, p.155]
  7. For hard-rock ridiculousness, Nickelback is tough to beat. [3 Oct 2005]

    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.

    "Why don't you keep you're (sic) opinion to your self if you aren't a fan" ... what?! I'm a fan of the rock genre, "Why don't you keep you're (sic) opinion to your self if you aren't a fan" ... what?! I'm a fan of the rock genre, isn't that enough? And as for Zach "how can you give this album a zero and try to justify your reasons" M... fair question, it's not an offensively godawful album - they've at least honed what they do pretty well, as you blindly loyal fans can attest - but how can YOU give it a ten? Is it honestly one of the best things you've ever heard? Nickelback are middle of the road. Fives out of tens are in their souls. It's a cheap thrill, not innovative or new. Hero H might be right in saying it's a "greast ablum" but I don't know what that means. Expand
