EDITORS’ NOTES

Nickelback have the odd distinction of being the biggest-selling rock band of the '00s and also the most reviled by critics. That's even though the most common critical complaints—Chad Kroeger's tawdry lyrics and the band's uncomplicated songwriting—can be found throughout much of modern pop music. It's the critics' loss. As this greatest-hits collection proves, slow jams like "Photograph" and "Someday" are no less sentimental than your average Nashville ballad, and rockers like "Burn It to the Ground" descend from the George Thorogood school of butt-kicking booze paeans. "Something in Your Mouth" may be lacking in subtlety, but that was never the band's selling point to start with.

Perfect for new NB fans

Most everything on this greatest hits album are the radio-released songs from their major albums. While it is a good compilation, there are no new releases on here and nothing from their earliest two albums "Curb" and "The State". Their albums are deeper and heavier than what this compilations as. This album is perfect for new Nickelback fans but offers nothing for long-time fans who are eager for another album from this awesome rock band.

Greatest Hits

I read the reviews and some people, dont know what a bands greatest hits means, its not to display new music, its exactly what it states, Greatest Hits. Its for people who wants to have all their biggest hits on 1 CD. Great Album

Great stuff!

I've been a fan for years and I think this is great. It's missing other really good songs but it's only volume one! I find it interesting that people say NB is bad yet they take the extra effort to seek out their CDs and music videos to write about how terrible they think NB is. Their shows are consistently sold out and they put out awesome stuff.
