Chad Kroeger, signed Theory of a Deadman to his label, co-produced this album and co-wrote six of the ten songs. So it's not a huge surprise that Theory of a Deadman sounds a lot like Kroeger's band Nickelback.

In fairness, Theory of a Deadman probably has other influences; lead vocalist Tyler Connelly sounds like he's listened to a lot of Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots, and the band's ...

In any case, this is a solidly crafted but fairly conventional album; it lacks that extra spark of creativity, spontaneity, or passion that might compensate for the band's safe, conservative approach to music.

    Theory of a Deadman is better than Nickelback any day

    I first heard Invisible Man on the Spiderman CD (Very good CD).I loved it so much I found out who the artist was and bought the CD the next day. They are totally awesome I've had it 6months and I still can't stop listening to them. Sure they sound like Nickelback but Theory can actually harmonize so it sounds good no matter what they sing.
