Nickelback, 'Dark Horse' (Roadrunner)

Dark Horse
Critical Mass
Label: Roadrunner

by Mikael Wood

By now, when it comes to his lyrics, you have to wonder if Chad Kroeger is just taking the piss: "Gotta meet the hottie with the million-dollar body," he marvels, checking out a stripper with a "pretty pink thong" at the start of the new Nickelback album. "They say it's over budget / But you pay her just to touch it," he concludes. A familiar blend of big-riff rockers and pseudo-sensitive power ballads, Dark Horse won't win the Canadian band any new fans -- nor will its hearty endorsements of oral sex disappoint the devoted.
