NICKELBACK – Here And Now

The Marmite band of rock – you either love or hate them – return with their first new album since 2008 and overall it is another good album. Nickelback are so big now they only do live interviews and don't do magazine or online interviews, although I would imagine much of this is stop them being misquoted as many people like to take a pop at this band.

Whilst the album lacks a massive crossover hit of 'Rockstar' proportions it does have the recent single, the pop rocker 'When We Stand Together' and the sure-to-be-a-single 'Holding On To Heaven', which has a lovely, melody filled chorus. 'Lullaby' is as the title suggests one of their slower numbers and 'Kiss It Goodbye' features a tasty riff (even if it did remind me of that dance hit 'Wiggle It'). 'Trying Not To Love You' is one of those everyday life stories the band do so well and again it features another sublime chorus. There are a couple of fillers like the chugging 'Bottoms Up'.

Nickelback have produced another set of classy songs destined for the airwaves and arenas of this world and long may they continue to do so.
