To quote a review of the Nickelback's's catalog, "...it was a half warmed-over grunge band that got a little famous." And to continue, "Only in a mainstream rock landscape this dull could these bootstrappers thrive." Finally, "...Eddie Vedder, you have so much to answer for." Average rating? Two stars out of five...at best. If you want real Canadian rock-n-soul music, stick with The Band, Neil Young...even Rush or BTO.
