  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.

    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]

    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.

    I think Nickelback is the perfect target for whiney "musical experts" who are pissed off because what they think defines rock no one wants to I think Nickelback is the perfect target for whiney "musical experts" who are pissed off because what they think defines rock no one wants to listen to/cares about, so they take out their frustration built from years of musical failure on a band that doesn Expand

    This album has a few decent songs but it has all been done by the band before and their music isn't growing at all.

    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 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
