    Awkward runthrough...

    Posted
    Philosopher

    The opening track "Something In Your Mouth" started the awkward feelings I got from this album. It's like "Animals" only the lyrics are just dirty, not dirty and clever which made the latter so great. "Burn It to the Ground" and "Next Go Round" just seem like songs they can play on tour to get the crowd on their feet and yelling. "Gotta Be Somebody" redeemed my feelings about the album. I've been listening to it since its preview release and I still love it. But then it gets awkward again with "I'd Come for You" with all of the double meanings that it entails. "If Today Was Your Last Day" is another slower, deeper song, but I just don't feel it delivers. Then they wrap it up with "This Afternoon", something that seems like a rehearsed jam session. I'm guessing that people will love this album for various reasons, but for me, I just find this a little below expectation. Then again, I have to give Nickelback credit for not completely falling off target like so many other artists do. This whole album is worth a few listens to see if you like it or not.

    This is a work of art! You put a legendary producer with a great band, you get a masterpiece! It definitely wont have near as many singles as "All the Right Reasons" but yet again what album will? This is exactly what the title says. "DARK". It is a dark side of the band. "Something In Your Mouth" makes for a great opener for the album with a loud/fun chorus. "Gotta Be Somebody" of course the first single was great. "I'd Come For You" a slower tune, is a song that will probably never get radio status but strongly deserves it. Finally "If Today Was Your Last Day" I predict will hit the radio next! This is an amazingly written song. The lyrics in that song will make shut up and listen plus it will stay in your head! Overall the album has a dirty side and a clean side. For all those complaining about the dirty, it's just NICKELBACK! The production of the album alone was 110% Get this album, put it in, and crank up your speakers!

    Great CD altogether

    First three songs are strong songs, and really sound like songs that could have been on All the Right Reasons. Once you get to track 4 (I'd Come For You), the pace of the CD changes significantly, but in Track 5 (Next Go Round), gets back to where the CD started off. Never Gonna Be Alone, track 7, is a ballady type song that many would like and is a hybrid of Fly Away/Photograph, then the rest of the CD is quality rock. If you are satisfied with the All the Right Reasons, this CD is better and has more bass and overall hard rock. The wording, though, is unlike Nickelback, so if you were to give this CD to a ten or eleven year old, it may be too vulgar. All in all, great tracks. Gotta Be Somebody and Something in Your Mouth are two best tracks on the CD.

    What an outstanding CD from the boys up north! Buy this CD Now! A musical journey from start to finish..yes some lyrics are adult oriented but all in all amazing..from indistinguishable kroger vocals to thundering guitar rifts to melodic backing voclas, to booming drum beats...this one has it all...Power ballads to Bone jarring rockers.. Judge this offering on its own and not on their previous CD"S Please...so sit back put it on and get ready for the musical journey led by the men of Nicelback!

    I am a fan of Nickelback and I loved their last album, so I was excited for this one. When I was listening to it, I found myself liking most of the songs, but there are a couple that either don't sound like Nickelback or are too raunchy for my taste. I understand some of Nickelbacks songs push the limit of R rated, but there were a couple of songs that over did it in my opinion. Nevertheless, this is a good album, and if you are a fan of Nickelback this is a must buy.

    I'm a huge Nickelback fan so I had to get this CD and I really do like it but I wouldn't say that is was better then their last CD, All The Right Reasons. It contains alot of innuendos, and one can only take so much of that. Then it gets repetitive, if ya know what I mean! I would recommend that any Nicklelback fan should go out and get this CD because it is still very good.

    I am a big nickelback fan. After listening to this CD i was very disapointed. The music is great but most of the lyrics are about the same thing(if you have heard the song "something in your mouth", you know what im talking about). I would not reccomend you buy this CD.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
