My Favourite Tracks
Burn It to the Ground
This is a really fast paced and energetic song about going out to a club or bar or gig and going crazy and doing whatever you like. This song is really good for getting you pumped up for a night out at a gig or the bar, and is well worth a listen to.
I'd Come for You
This is a slower song about always being there for someone you love, but not knowing exactly whether they want you to be there at all. I like this song because it shows more a more emotional side to the band (I usually love the slower Nickelback songs, such as Photographs). The lead singer Chad Kroeger has a really nice voice that is really easy to listen to.
This is a sexier song about a poor girl who, by choice, becomes a high class hooker, using her assets to afford a really nice lifestyle because of it and gaining quite a few powerful business contacts on her 'to do' list (or little black book). This song has quite a cheeky and almost comedic feel it, and is definitely oozing with sex appeal. It is a really catchy song and my favourite on the album, despite its controversial nature.
This is another catchy and upbeat song with loads of attitude and confidence, it is about sex (as the title suggests and how it is always the answer to everything. The chorus on this song is so catchy and it is just a really fun song that is easy to listen to and hard to get out of your head.
The Rest of the Album
I would say that, in my opinion, all the other tracks on this album are all quiet good, however with the exception of This Afternoon bores me a bit and I don't ever really listen to it, it just gets skipped normally. There is a good range of tracks on this album with a nice balance of fast, fun, upbeat songs and slower, more emotional, laid back songs. There are quite a lot of sexual references in this album and it definitely isn't suitable for kids.
You can pick this album up in HMV or any of the supermarkets or online, I got mine in HMV for around £8 a few months ago, which wasn't a bad price as there are lots of great songs on it and I have got quite a bit of listening out of it and no doubt will listen to it more in the future.
Overall I am really glad that I decided to check this album out, there is a really nice mix of tracks and all of the tracks (excluding the last one in my opinion) are fantastic, I think that Nickelback fans will really enjoy this album and anyone who hasn't heard of them and likes rock/grunge type music should check them out. Overall I would give this album 4 out of 5 stars.
