WOW, WHAT BALLADS!!!,
This review is from: Dark Horse (Audio CD)
Yes, I agree: the sound it different from the early albums, but come on, guys: some of the ballads on this album are amazing! "Never gonna be alone", "If today...", "Gotta be somebody" and "I'd come along" are truly breathtaking songs... Lyrics, ok one could really debate whether they should be stronger, but I am talking about that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you hear a sound like that... Perhaps it is "less dark" - sure, but the end result is impressive in my view - these songs really rock! A great follow-up to "All the right reasons" - Nickelback, you have my vote!
