  • Summary: The Canadian grunge act attempts to duplicate the multi-platinum success of 2001's 'Silver Side Up' with this latest release.

  1. It offers a heaping helping of meat-and-potatoes rawk that never veers far from the sing-along template established by their hit ''How You Remind Me.''
  2. For fans of Silver Side Up, Nickelback have delivered the goods once more.
  3. Nickelback's so safe, so sanitized and so damn catchy that it's downright scary.
  4. None of their new album will be remembered in a few years' time. Yet, like most fast food, there's very little wrong with it right now. [Dec 2003, p.130]
  5. Brazenly consistent, if unimaginative. [13 Nov 2003, p.99]
  6. Nickelback can now afford a little more time in the studio and a little more time to indulge themselves, and they turn out the same record, only slicker, which only highlights just how oppressively and needlessly sullen this group is.

    Simply awesome! From the beautiful ballad of Someday to the rock anthem of See you at the Show, Nickback delivered another fantastic album! If you like Silver Side Up, then The long Road is a must have! Expand

    From "If Everyone Cared": "If everyone cared and nobody cried If everyone loved and nobody lied If everyone shared and swallowed their pride We'd see the day when nobody died " Anyone who manges to rhyme "cried", "lied", "pride", and "died" right in a row in a crap chorus like that should be banned from ever making music again. Makes me want to vomit. Expand

    It's just not good music. I hate it, actually. It's so bad. It says a lot when a band can sell millions of records with an album that says absolutely nothing. Expand
