Album of the Day
All the Right Reasons
Nickelback is among the most successful rock bands from Canada, and ALL THE RIGHT REASONS is one of the reasons; the diamond-certified 2005 collection was one of Billboard's 20 biggest-selling albums of the decade. The quartet deliver exactly what fans want on these 11 originals while still branching out from the post-grunge rock they cut their teeth on, and the set's singles include three Top 10 hits: “Far Away,” “Photograph” and “Rockstar.” If frontman Chad Kroeger sounds a little more reflective on these tracks and the instrumental palette more varied than on past efforts, the album still packs a punch, with 3 Doors Down drummer Daniel Adair joining the lineup and tough guitar riffs from ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Pantera's Dimebag Darrell (who is sampled on the tribute song “Side of a Bullet”). The chart-topping ALL THE RIGHT REASONS is reason enough to put Nickelback on your playlist.
