    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

    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 clichés you should be bored to death of by now.

    I find it interesting that whenever a band puts together meaningful lyrics and meaningful topics it gets skewered by critics. I suppose I find it interesting that whenever a band puts together meaningful lyrics and meaningful topics it gets skewered by critics. I suppose critics are paid to find something new and different, and if the band has a style that their fans like and stick to it, critics move on. These guys are not doing anything new, and they don't apologize for it. Their music has some significant morals and motives, and they are a ton of fun. I put them in the Creed and 3 Doors Down category. I hope next album they get a bit more edge back, but overall I love these guys. Expand

    The best Nickelback album is around a 5.5 out of 10. This one is a 2.

    I hope society regrets the fact that we gave money to a talentless band, not to mention the lead singer looks like a pedophile.
