All The Right Reasons
Label: Roadrunner Records/Nickelback
With 2005's All the Right Reasons, Nickelback hit on a perfect recipe of big guitars and even bigger pop moves. Maturing into a relevant modern rock act, the elder statesmen of "active rock" reached and then surpassed the zillion-seller status that Silver Side Up brought them in '01. The Southern rock-ish "Rockstar," surging heart-tugger "Far Away" and anthemic "Photograph" all made it into the Top 10 for good reason: they are infinitely sing-able and sound great coming out of a jukebox.
