"All the Right Reasons" is Nickelback's fifth studio album that reached 7x platinum status, and critical acclaim. It spawned five hot 100 singles, and made the #1 spot on VH1's playlist.
Throughout their nine-year career, Nickelback have stayed true to their roots, releasing five CDs of straight-up, unapologetic rock & roll. So how have things changed for the Canadian boys since the massive success of Silver Side Up and The Long Road? Well, brothers Chad and Mike Kroeger still live in the Great White North, and they still write hook-laden rock songs. The only difference now is that they have the satisfaction, 10 million CDs later, of smugly knowing that even some of their biggest naysayers will guiltily admit to singing along with Nickelback's catchy hits. On All the Right Reasons, one track definitely ranks high up in hum-ability: the first single, "Photograph," reminisces about the bittersweetness of high school in a small town--once again reconfirming frontman Chad Kroeger's ability to write memorable hooks. Regarding the rest of the disc: standard rock topics like love, lust, jealousy, and breakups abound, with riff-y delivery that longtime fans will love. The guilty pleasure bunch will also find what they need within the grooves, on the ballad "If Everyone Cared," the riff-heavy "Fight for All the Wrong Reasons," and the Metallica-inspired "Savin' Me." The disc's most impressive and simultaneously surreal moment, however, exists on "Side of a Bullet," a passionate revenge tale written about the killer of Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, which features one of the late Abbott's guitar solos as donated by Pantera bandmate and brother, drummer Vinnie Paul. --Denise Sheppard

Top Customer Reviews
Nickelback tends to take a lot of heat for writing a lot of material that sounds exactly the same as everything else they write. But when it comes down to music, it's all a matter of taste. If you like the first track, and you like everything that could sound like that track, then it's easy music. And unfortunately, most of the modern music scene is quite resplendent in their recycling of sound and taking the "easy" way out. Many people take others' tastes way too seriously. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. It's just that simple.
But anyway, that's enough of the semantics. Frontman Chad Kroeger rocks out with his band on almost every track on this CD. Sometimes they make good, clean fun with their radio-friendly ballads. And at other times, they make not-so-clean fun with their sexually charged rock and suggestive lyrics.
Below is a brief description of each track on the CD, along with a numerical rating.
Track 1: Follow You Home--(7)--a rocking opener about a man who will still follow the girl home, no matter what evil things she does to him. She's got that much of a hold on him.
Track 2: Fight For All the Wrong Reasons--(7)--a heavy, guitar-laden track about fighting for a relationship just because the sex was incredible. It doesn't matter if they shouldn't be together, the sex makes it all worth it.
Track 3: Photograph--(7)--a nostalgic song about the wave of memories that can come flooding back by looking through some old photographs. It's time to confront the people and things that now need to be a part of the past, to say goodbye and put those memories to rest.
Track 4: Animals--(8)--a raw and dirty, hard-driving rocker about two people who are so in lust with each other, they're acting like wild animals. She's sneaking out of the house, giving him road head, and they're driving at breakneck speed...until daddy catches them.
Track 5: Savin' Me--(8)--a rock ballad about someone who is so strung out, he just needs you to say the words if they're the words that can save him from his misery. Help by giving him hope because you're the only one who can.
Track 6: Far Away--(6)--another rock ballad about missing someone and having loved them all along. He wants to be back by her side because together, they can face anything, even hell, and she gives him the strength he needs to survive.
Track 7: Next Contestant--(7)--it's hard to date a hot waitress! Who's going to be the next contestant to get their ass kicked for grabbing his girlfriend's ass and coming on to her?
Track 8: Side of a Bullet--(6)--Uncle Sam taught this soldier to shoot, maybe a little too well. Now he's off on his own, self-justifiable killing spree. He has killed someone the focus of the song cared about, so now he is carving the soldier's name onto the side of a bullet.
Track 9: If Everyone Cared--(8)--an updated ballad for peace, where if everyone cared and tried, no one would cry or die. A song about being thankful you're alive and in love and if everyone could experience this kind of love, there wouldn't be the misery that exists in the world today.
Track 10: Someone That You're With--(7)--a song about wanting to be with someone who is already with someone else and has a line of men waiting for their turn to be next. She's alluring and you love her, but all you can hope for is to be that someone that she's with.
Track 11: Rockstar--(7)--a fun little ditty about the rockstar life we all covet. We all just want to be big rockstars with bathrooms we could play baseball in and our drug dealers on speed dial.

Overall,this album got 4 stars. Very good.
I ordered this CD with high hopes. When I got it and put it into my laptop, everything seemed normal. There was every song, different names, different lengths.
I listened to the first song, and all was well. I then moved on to the second song.
It was the exact same song? I knew I couldn't be mistaken. Surely every song would have its own unique attributes to differentiate from the others. I went on to the next song, and then the next...but every single one was the exact same.
I called my friend who had suggested the CD, but she said her CD was fine and that maybe something was wrong with mine. We got to talking about music videos and she told me her two favorites, I went and looked them up online.
IT WAS THE SAME SONG FOR BOTH VIDEOS.
I'm completely confused. Why are all the songs exactly the same?
