  • 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.

    This is great, old school Nickelback, before it became popular to hate them. The tracks are fast and ferocious, and the ballads are heartfelt and memorable and original compared to their earlier work. A start-to-finish enjoyable album. Expand

    The band had some catchy tracks like "Someday" and "Figure You Out" enhanced the album's quality, although many of the other tracks were mediocre.
