About this deal

As anticlimactic as that may seem, it’s the truth; Nickelback are too uniformly competent to outright hate, and them boiling down their entire musical existence to a science is clearly still working as far as easy, accessible, unchallenging rock goes. Yes, Get Rollin’ can be a pretty middling, pretty unimaginative album at the best of times, but if that still constitutes a belief of ‘worst band ever’, that just feels a bit disingenuous overall. Tidal Wave's summery haze is deliciously strung out, one of those hypnotic songs that gets better with each play, and its dreamlike lilt contrasts with Steel Still Rusts' serious-as-cancer cautionary tale. I was, like, 'There's just no way that you're the warden of San Quentin,' and everyone was, like, 'Yup. We don’t have one record that really sort of sounds the same in terms of songwriting from top to bottom.

As for the latter, Nickelback clearly know how popular they are and how to win over that existing audience. Nickelback is the 11 th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2 nd best selling “foreign” group in the U. That can still be applied to an album like this, which isn’t even among their best, but shows a band dialling into what’s made them popular and successful for years, running with it, and producing the results that’ll ensure that keeps going for plenty of time yet to come.But it almost feels compulsory to start off any long-form discussion of Nickelback with a statement like that, as it has done for years. They aren’t a band with the sort of catalogue that welcomes it; instead, they’ve made lowest-common-denominator rock music forever, with occasionally the mildest change-up that’s never affected the payoff even slightly.

Nickelback is the 11 th best selling musical act of all time with over 50,000,000 units sold and the 2 nd best selling “foreign” group in the U. 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). You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.The second single "Those Days" was released on October 5, 2022, [26] followed by a music video on October 26. Maybe that’s a bad thing—after all, even a bad album can be more fun to rip apart than a boring one—but at this stage, what’s the point in even singling Nickelback out for that? Mike Kroeger spoke of his personal desire to move in more of a heavy metal direction, or wanting to do an album of Slayer cover songs. San Quentin is the obvious standout, as the raucous, driving rocker pivoting closer to metal that’s become an invaluable asset for them in later years, but as far as middle-of-the-road rock goes, Steel Still Rusts and Standing In The Dark take their place among the band’s established canon with fair ease. 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.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Totally different again is High Time, a country metal stomp that Cadillac Three would sell a few horses for, while Vegas Bomb is a shuddering metallic creature powered by gutsy twin guitars.

Well, we should have been making a record a lot sooner, with all that time off [due to the coronavirus pandemic]. Nickelback haven't released a studio album in more than five years, but to paraphrase one of their biggest hits, Get Rollin' is how they remind us of what we've been missing.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Just like every other band that has to do this stuff, you wanna get a chance to see your fans all around the world. 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.
