Single Review: Nickelback – Something In Your Mouth

By on Wednesday, 12th November 2008 at 5:08 pm

With every album release Nickelback manage to produce a host of chart filling singles but the new track from the Canadian rockers seems extra special. “Gotta Be Somebody” has already been filling the top ten from the album “Dark Horse” (set to be released on the 18th November) and it did well to not disappoint fans after the anthem Rockstar set the bar for future hits very high.

I’ve always been frustrated with Nickelback though. With each album they firstly release the most poppy and commercial sounding track which is fair enough but they never seem brave enough to allow the second single to be the fast paced rock track that always features on the albums track listing.

This time though, they’ve nailed it with “Something in Your Mouth” which I think is one of the most complete Nickelback songs ever. It sounds like a blend of Animals and Side of a bullet from the previous CD “All the Right Reasons”.

The tune starts with ear perplexing guitar riffs and catchy vocals that are almost impossible to not sing along with while the drummer, Daniel Adair, makes brilliant use of the bass drum to produce a thumping beat that drives the track along.

I have to say that Nickelback amaze me. With every fresh song I am certain that they have peaked and now I am getting used to being proven wrong. Personally, I can’t wait for Dark Horse to come out. I’ve seen the band get better with each album so I am forced to wonder what will the next one be like?

Rock your socks off by visiting their MySpace and be sure to listen to Something In Your Mouth.
