Nickelback – ‘Feed the Machine’ – Album Review

I know what you are asking…Why on Earth am I doing a Nickelback review???  I have asked myself that same question over and over again.  But I do have a reason.  I wanted to see if I could objectively review an album despite any prior biases I might have with the band.  It was more of an experiment…a challenge.

Let me give you some history.  I started out as a fan of Nickelback…I mean who didn’t back in the day.  They wrote really catchy songs that got stuck in your head.  Over time, that like became boredom as everything they ever did was the same old shit.  No growth, no diversity.  Then further on, they became a joke, a caricature of themselves.

Then they became down right irritating with stupid, worthless feuds such as the recent spat with Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor.  Now I can’t even listen to Stone Sour’s album as a result.  They both had albums coming out around the same time so the spat was probably planned for publicity that neither band really needed.  It was so fucking stupid (excuse my language but it was).

That got me thinking even more (which is dangerous).  Do I not like them anymore because of all the negativity that I have heard over the years or is it because they really aren’t that good.  That thought intrigued me.  So, I forced myself to try and wipe all that out of my head and do a solid review on this album as if it wasn’t Nickelback.  As if I hadn’t heard of this band or had no idea who did the album.  Did it work???

Tuesday’s Memes – Nickelback

We made it through another Monday and now we need a reason to laugh.  This week, I am focusing on Nickelback.  Why?  Because why not…Chad Kroeger won’t shut the f#$# up and his little spat with Corey Taylor is almost comical and completely sad.  And that spat is so bad that when I listened to Stone Sour’s new album I thought it sucked as bad as Nickelback’s new one.  Everyone gives Nickelback a hard time and every time Chad opens his mouth, I know why.

So, I am going to poke fun at the them as well…Enjoy and have a great rest of the week.
