Nickleback, Curb

(Roadrunner)

Publication YearIssue Date 

Before Nickleback was famous they were still Nickleback. With the re-release of Curb, Nickleback's first album, it's obvious the Hanna boys haven't strayed far from their original sound despite their more recent multi-platinum efforts. Curb's sound is raw in comparison to Silver Side Up, with a very rusty-sounding Chad Krogger singing undistinguishable lyrics (could he conceivably have had voice lessons in the last six years?). However, the music is strong, with tracks like "Detangler" and "Where?" standing out as slightly unique from Nickleback's regular fare. If you're a Nickleback fan, you'll enjoy this cd, with the original version of "Just Four" included. If you're not a fan, this cd, which doesn't measure up to later efforts, won't convert you.

Years ago this was my favorite CD. I couldn't beleive such a great band hadn't made it big?!! With such an awesome sound I became a huge fan dragging everyone I could to all the local shows in Vancouver. I love the Hanna boys...even though anyone who has lived in Alberta knows Hanna pretty much sucks... I give this album 4 out of 4 it ROCKS as hard as the guys do!
