Editorial Reviews

Produced by Nickelback and recorded at Mountain View Studios, Vancouver, BC, Here and Now is Nickelback s seventh studio record and is the follow up to 2008 s widely successful Dark Horse which has been certified 3-times platinum.

"When you listen to this record, it sounds like it could be from four different artists," says Chad Kroeger. "We always try and do the same thing: We try to do something heavier than we've ever done, more melodic than we've ever done, every single time we do this, and I think we've achieved it again."

I have to say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and when it comes to music, pretty much everybody has one. I'm not here to try to discredit any other reviews from anyone regarding any album. I also understand that there will always be a large group of people who will criticize successful, popular, mainstream acts just because it's not 'cool' to like anything that everyone else likes. However, I do have to question those that have stated Nickelback has 'sold out' or gone 'poppy'. As far as I can tell those folks have got to be basing their opinions solely on the tracks being played on radio. And additionally, I challenge anyone to go back and listen to Nickelback's earlier work and claim that it's 'harder' than their more recent efforts. I own every Nickelback album and personally believe that the only key difference is production. Modern albums I admit are highly polished, but that happens to be something that I appreciate. Nickelback is one of those bands, like many great and successful bands throughout history, which have been able to find their 'niche' and stick with it. One thing that I've always appreciated about Nickelback is the fact that I can be confident with every new album they will stay true to what has made them successful and what I love. You will always be able to tell you're listening to Nickelback. Their new album is no exception. Like many other NB records, they come out of the gates and kick you square in the teeth. This Means War has got to be one of the hardest hitting, foot stomping, fist pumping, head banging tracks they've written to date. Follow that up with the catchy Bottoms Up, and you've got a fantastic 1-2 punch to get the album kicked off. When we Stand Together seems to have received a lot of criticism which I don't understand.Read more ›

Nickelback return with another strong album that combines their trademarks of big guitars with massive vocal hooks into another set of memorable songs that guarantees them lots of commercial radio play. This time round the band decided to produce the album themselves and they have done a great job after working with the legendary rock producer Mutt Lange on their previous album Dark Horse. It might not be quite as shiny as Dark Horse but the production on Here & Now is still absolutely huge with lots of great big guitar tones, awesome backing vocal arrangements, and a nice solid drum sound. Highlights include the frantic riffs of the killer opening track "This Means War", the massive party anthem "Bottoms Up", the rocking grooves of "Gotta Get Me Some", the epic power ballad "Lullaby" which has some really nice piano parts, and the heartfelt sentiment of "Trying Not To Love You". If you're a fan of what Nickelback do then you will love this album. If you are yet to warm to their style of catchy commercial rock then you might want to avoid Here & Now because it offers more of the same.

With this release, What I was hoping for was a little bit of change. Not so much in musical style, but subject matter. Track 1 - This Means War - 4 Stars - This song has a great guitar riff and should be a part of their live show. Track 2 - Bottoms Up - 3 Stars - Good rocking music with lyrics about drinking. This is what i mean by subject matter change. Track 3 - When We Stand Together - 4 Stars - This is one of my favorites. Its contemporary, but this song has a really good message. Track 4 - Midnight Queen - 3 Stars - Im not too sure what the story of this song is. All I know is its a song about drinking and sex. What else is new,right? Track 5 - Gotta Get Me Some - 4 Stars - This song has an awesome groove,Would have recieved 5 stars if it wasn't about...Wait For It.... Drinking and Sex. Track 6 - Lullaby - 5 Stars - Another contemporary song. This song is special to me because it hit pretty close to home for me. A very well written song. Track 7 - Kiss It Goodbye - 4 Stars - Probably my Favorite Rocker on this album. Track 8 - Trying Not To Love You - 3 Stars - Break up song. This song sounds similar to other songs they have done in the past couple albums. Track 9 - Holding On To Heaven - 3 stars - Love Song. Once again,This song sounds similar to other songs on the past couple albums. Track 10 - Everything I Wanna Do - 3 stars - A song about a girlfriend who will do anything you wanna do in bed. Track 11 - Don't Ever Let It End - 1 Star - Another song along the lines of "This Afternoon" on the Dark Horse Album. Not a fan at all of this Song.

I've been a big nickleback fan for years, but this album is simply weak! This started with Dark horse and has continud with this one. Maybe three descent songs on this album, save your money and listen to the old albums.

Let's face it: Nickelback has had a fairly tough time with its fan base. Mostly, they've been viewed as either inconsistent or as commercial sell-outs. (Yes, I said `sell outs' ... that's not me calling them that ... I'm just trying to repeat what others have said so that I can make this point and then get on to talking about the tracks and the album as a whole.) Personally, I haven't had any major qualms with their sound as I believe that, as most bands do, the boys have tried to evolve a bit over time. When the opportunity presented itself, they decided to be a bit more radio-friendly, and that's not a bad thing when you can double your audience. Music is still, first and foremost, a business, and double the audience means double the album sales, or so any artist might hope.

This Means War (4.0 out of 5): Well, fans, you wanted rock, and "This Means War" is nothing but a consistent, driving guitar track for any of us to bang our head to. Perhaps it's a nod to longtime fans who've wanted the boys to return to some of their heavier sound, though I suspect they won't be completed pleased.

Bottoms Up (5 out of 5): Another convincing rocker about doing what bad boys do best: heavy drinking while painting the town red. "This is what it's all about, no one can slow us down, we ain't gonna stop until the clock runs out." Completes a solid one-two punch to open their latest album.

When We Stand Together (2.5 out of 5): This is the `contemporary sounding' Nickelback - precisely the sound old school fans have rejected. It's a bit of a mix of radio rock styles that closely resembles Def Leppard. The problem is that it's just way too generic a set of lyrics to really mean much of anything, and I suspect the track ends up being blander than anything else here.
