About this deal

Even on its ‘heavy’ moments, that still applies (even if both Skinny Little Missy and Vegas Bomb end up clunkier and more heavy-footed than particularly powerful). And to a degree, you can kind of let them off the hook for it, seeing as vast experimentation has never been in their nature.

But in the context of what it’s trying to achieve and who it’s for, Get Rollin’ is nothing to get worked up about at all. This is Nickelback after all, a band whose deepest foray into real creativity was a collaboration with Flo Rida, and for whom new albums act as tools to shore up a legacy that’s pretty much set in stone at this stage. The branding they’ve picked up has made it an unavoidable thorn to be pulled at, though somewhat futilely given that any critical reevaluation of Nickelback is effectively pointless. Even coasting like they evidently are here, they’re still leagues above the bands whose entire careers have been dedicated to copying their lead, and that’s because Nickelback, if nothing else, have some charm to them. And when they’re still painting with the same brush strokes as wide as the Atlantic, with minimal variety after all these years, you start to wonder what Get Rollin’ really adds to any greater conversation.The second single "Those Days" was released on October 5, 2022, [26] followed by a music video on October 26. When the subject of a release date came up, Mike said “it’ll be done when it’s done”, explaining that he and band would rather not be confined to a timescale for fear of making “a shitty record”. Because, for as much as they’re retaking every step they’ve ever made on this album, they can still be okay at it. Laughs] And yeah, we took our time with it, which was just a wonderful luxury, to be able to sit back and [go], ‘No.

Highlights being San Quentin , Steel still rusts , Does heaven even know your missing , Skinny little missy , vegas bomb . During a July 2021 interview, bassist Mike Kroeger commented when asked about the band's progress on new music saying "That is happening right now" he said of the forthcoming LP. Look, if you’re actively looking for Nickelback reviews to validate some latent desire to see them torn to shreds and continue the longstanding narrative around them, maybe it’s worth re-examining why that’s something you want.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. But it’s weird to say this, but for 25 years it feels like someone’s been standing behind us with a cattle prod and telling us, ‘Hey, the record’s gotta be done at this time. Especially in the case of Nickelback, theirs is among the most harmless overall, likely a result of its abject broadness and lack of real edge or significant depth. We don’t have one record that really sort of sounds the same in terms of songwriting from top to bottom.

Texas band Snowblind Revival say Nickelback’s 2005 hit Rockstar borrows “a substantial amount of the music” from one of their own songs. During an interview with WRAT radio station, lead vocalist Chad Kroeger spoke about the lyrical inspiration for "San Quentin", saying: "I met the San Quentin prison warden at a party.

But even saying all that, there can be a certain degree of embarrassment felt from sticking up for a band like this, especially when a new album comes out. You mightn’t like it, and even from the position of recognising there is quality here, it’d be nice if more creative bands got even a fraction of the slice they have, but there are more worthwhile entities in the music industry to hate than this. The highs aren’t very high, but they’re serviceable enough; even when the formula is being as rinsed as it is, there’s a certain bar of quality that Nickelback can hit in their sleep. On May 12, 2023, Nickelback announced an expanded deluxe edition of the album will be released on June 3, 2023, with an alternate blue cover.

The Canadian megastars don't merely get away with it – the song's an energised strutter with cool hooks, licks that Lenny Kravitz would nod to, and a flyaway guitar solo that's as good as anything they've done.Just like every other band that has to do this stuff, you wanna get a chance to see your fans all around the world. Amongst all these accolades, they’ve also been named Billboard’s “Top Rock Group of the Decade”, and they have received a staggering nine Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, a World Music Award, a People’s Choice Award, twelve JUNO Awards, seven MuchMusic Video Awards, and have been inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame (2007). Yes, Chad Kroeger still sings with that voice, but he’s got conviction; there’s enough snarl to play the hard-edged rockstar as there is earnestness to sell his pretensions towards depth and sincerity.
