Awesome band, still not truly recognised!,
This review is from: The Best Of Nickelback Volume 1 (MP3 Download)
Awesome band and awesome music! It gets 4 stars because there's nothing previously unreleased! Because I am a close follower, I don't need this playlist... Where to start? Is this even a good playlist? Not one bad song here that's for sure, maybe the balance is a bit off, I am able to recognise 5 of these tracks as "heavy Nickelback". These being; "Burn it to the ground", "Figured you Out", "Never Again", "Animals" and "Something in Your Mouth". Also I must say, why are there 6 All the Right Reasons songs on here and only 2 Here and Now songs (of which neither are heavy!)? Surely they have something further planned? A Vol. 2 perhaps, a playlist where we will see something new, a playlist which includes more heavier material, songs like "Side of a Bullet", "Because of You", "Woke Up this Morning" and "This Means War", maybe there will be some live recordings in a possible further release? Who knows? This playlist I feel isn't enough, it doesn't give the full picture!!

Its a "Greatest hits" Cd, of course there's no previously unreleased stuff on it, that's the whole point.

Mr. J. Daly says:
Quite often greatest hits albums will have a couple of unreleased songs to keep the older fans happy - look at the foo's greatest hits for example. 2 new songs and a couple of live versions (if my memory serves me correctly).

It's actually a best of, not greatest hits. This Means War should be on here along with Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting which has not been on a Nickelback album. Not a bad selection though. Obviously some will hate it as it's apparently "cool" to hate on Nickelback.

You're right, it's not a bad selection of tracks, I just wish there was something new in it and this is an informed comment, because Chad himself said that they will add a couple of new songs in their compilation and then full ahead for their 8th release!

I think it's quite a clever marketing trick on behalf of the record company. Surely a 'volume 2' will follow, and that will no doubt have a couple of previously unreleased tracks on (whether live or entirely new) to entice people to buy it. That should entice the fans to buy this volume 1 offering, to keep their collections up-to-date, despite previously deciding not to bother.
I think the old 'greatest hits' albums have had their day thanks to technology. I don't really understand the point of buying this when you have all the albums in their catalogue anyway and can make the same playlist from the originals? Sure, not everyone has an iPod (or equivalent) but how hard is it to rip/burn CD's (if you need it in CD format)?

I have all their albums too, what would make me want to buy a best of part 2? A couple of new tracks and a few acoustic or orchestral tracks would do it. Not suggesting a copy of Metallica's "S&M" album but a taste would be nice. Maybe a few guests singing along with some songs too. Chad's duet with Josey of "Saliva" for the Spiderman film was inspired. Maybe a woman next would add a different touch? Tarja Turunen ( ex "Nightwish" singer would be my choice except for myself of course which wouldn't happen ever!!! As for buying this - pretty pointless as i have every album they've released so nothing new here to tempt me unfortunately! :(

I have a few friends who like Nickelback and as I've said to them, even if you want to buy this CD on the basis that you'd be supporting a band/group that you like, there's better ways to do it! They have a couple of live DVDs that are not so well known as their albums are, the "Live at Sturgis" one is killer!!

Have a listen to Avril Lavigne's "Let Me Go" from her self titled album, that features a vocal from Chad. Great song too.
