Overview

Silver Side Up

Like a whole lotta today's angry young metal men, Nickelback seem perfectly willing to show their sensitive side between ventings of pure rage. But unlike the bulk of their peers, the Canadian quartet smooth the transition between those emotional extremes with genuinely memorable melodies that break free of nu-metal cliché. Songs like "How You Remind Me" and the sweeping title track may encroach on Staind's territory, but vocalist Chad Kroeger seldom sounds like he's straining himself to emote, particularly when helped along by harmonies from guitarist Ryan Peake -- Kroeger's simply pouring out his innards. While he doesn't descend into preachiness, the charismatic singer does make an effort to say something of note, as on the anti-domestic violence rant "Never Again." The foursome work the heavier end of the spectrum admirably too, hitting a thudding grunge groove on "Hollywood" and "Where Do I Hide" (which suggests the sound of Sub Pop circa 1989). Brawny, yes, but brainiacs can dig in, too.

I am new to the whole Nickelback thing because I have been in Europe for quite some time, but this is the absolute best thing I have ever heard in my life!!!! Chad Kroeger's lyrics are incredible, they ring so true, and they resonate in your mind long after the album has finished playing. Kroeger's deep voice is beautifully counterbalanced by the rest of the Nickelback team, and after listening to it, I was begging for more. This is a must have for any person who is even remotly interested in the current alternative/indie rock scene!!!!!!!

A band with some talent and vision and a knack for providing album-rock styled releases, that ensure every song could be a single.

The formerly Canadian rock band, Nickelback, has more to their sound than catchy lyrics. Underneath intricate guitar chords, you should really listen to what they have to say. Their songs address touchy situations such as abusive relationships, both physically and mentally. Nickelback has created their own unique sound and combined that with powerful lyrics that really are worth a second look.

A wicked band from Hannah, Alberta (look it up if you don't know where it is)though they don't say it anymore. Solid album, every track. Get their first two CD's as well. Get this album!

''Silver Side Up'' is definately a step in the right direction for these four Canucks. The voals are happening, the riffs are rocking and even the lyrics in themselves can stand alone strong. 'How You Remind Me' shows off Nickelback's ''softer''(term used lightly) side while 'Never Again' is pure powerchord magic. And for those who enjoy the sound of an acoustic in their rock, 'Good Times Gone' is the song for you with a catchy tune. Basically, pick a song, anyone from 1-10 and it can be a number one hit. Overall rating for Nickelback's ''Silver Side Up'' 5 Stars, a 10 out of 10, two thumbs-up, a must have for all rock fans!

Heyhey I'm from Perth in Western Australia, and i think that this is the most crankingly awsome album ive ever heard. Chad's voice is bloody rockin as. "Never Again" is the best song I've ever heard. It is sooo deep and meaningful yet at the same time harsh. Any American girls who wanna chat send us an email.

nickelback has been around since 1996 and allison becker on vh1 stated that this band may not stay together due to chad taking complete control of the band nickelback almost broke up in 2001 due to chad having to go to rehab for having a serious beer drinking problem chad states in interviews that nickelback is either the next megadeth or slayer or metallica i asked chad a question once at one nickelback concert he threw up all over me chad is nothing but a disgusting freak show i sure hope nickelback breaks up in the future because nickelback is nickelweak

This cd, their 3rd release in the US, is jam packed with memorable guitar riffs and solos,all songs, are written by lead guitarist and vocalist, Chad Kroeger. With rockin tunes and killer lyrics, this is a must have for rock fans.

Nickleback's music is really original. They opproach their songwriting in a less-than-main-stream way. Some people may find it difficult to listen to their output, but the music sounds good. Their single 'This is how you remind me' is great.
