Album Review – Nickelback: Here & Now

The Staying Power Of Nickelback!

Here and Now

Nickelback has been a band that I have loved since the release of The State! If a song catches my ear and I instantly like it well that’s how I have always been with music. I think it was either Breathe or Leader Of Men that I heard first wayyyyyy back when. Sure there are a few tracks in NB’s catalog that I don’t listen to as much. Overall I throughly enjoy their albums. A lot of people I know say they peaked with Silver Side Up, well I severely disagree with that. I will admit that most Nickelback songs are very radio friendly. However they do tackle some darker stuff. No one will ever change my opinion and liking of this band, just like no one can change my mind that the Darth Maul fight at the end of Phantom Menace was awesome! Dual Lightsaber FTW!!!

However we are here to talk about the latest release from Nickelback. Here and Now was released on Nickelback Monday November 21, 2011. The first two singles Bottoms Up and When We Stand Together hit radio September 26th, and available for purchase September 27th. Bottoms Up is the party song from the band, and will easily become a song that bartenders will play all the time. When We Stand Together is a melodic trance like song. It will mesmerize you, and it has a nice groove to it. The arrangement of the tracks on Here and Now are prefect. I don’t think there is another order I’d put them in. Lullaby and Trying Not To Love You are my Top 2 favorite songs at this moment. Other favorites are Midnight Queen, Gotta Get Me Some, Kiss It GoodBye, and Holding Onto Heaven. I’ve listened to this album over and over front to back since I started writing this review. It is yet another solid effot from Nickelback. I can’t wait to see them perform these songs live!

In closing I must say that from heading down The Long Road, to giving us All The Right Reasons, riding a Dark Horse, and now this new album I can listen to every track from Nickelback. There are a few tracks on Curb, The State, and Silver Side Up That don’t really catch me.

If you are a Nickelback fan well why are you still reading this go buy Nickelback’s Here and Now RIGHT NOW!!!!
