Album Review: Nickelback’s Here And Now

So today is the release of Nickelback’s new ablum “Here And Now” and I’ve actually looked forwarded to this album a lot more than their other ones. My parents love their music and I’m a fan too, just not like them. After listening to this one though, I think I can say I love them and feel happy about it. When Sirius XM Octane started playing “When We Stand Together” and “Bottoms Up” I could feel myself getting hooked fast already. I expected to not like every song, because there’s not too many rock albums that I can listen to from start to finish. This, I can add to that list. Even though I might have a few songs on repeat.

I know I’m already addicted to “Lullaby” because of how it starts. It starts with a piano, and it’s so much different. Now since I have never listened to their past albums from beginning to end, I could be wrong. I’ve never heard them not start off with a guitar before this song. It’s kind of a surprise. I definitely think it’s a four and a half star album. I just wish they had more than 11 songs.

My mom and sister watched the American Music Awards, and mom’s got a crush on the bass player and drummer. She literally asked me after the commerical come on and said, “did you see the bass guitarist and drummer?” She’s a nut. I’m a Chad fan, he’s just too good looking to ignore. I hope they come to Indiana when they go on tour. I think my parents and I would fun seeing them live. If you’re a Nickelback hater reading, don’t you dare post a comment. It will be deleted for sure. Hell, if you’re a hater, maybe this album will change your mind for good. It’s seriously the best album of the year. Best rock album at least.

Journal Me Up.

I’ve been thinking lately, yet I think all the time. I can’t seem to turn off my brain half the time. Anyways, I’ve been thinking about writing down my feelings. Not writing them in song or poem form, but just thoughts of how I’m feeling and closing the cover and hoping nobody reads them. I still think every notebook should a dead bolt to lock everything.

I have two notebooks on my floor right now. I’d rather use the green one since it’s the biggest one I’ve got. My red one just has some things written in it, I need to tear out and throw away. The green one has stuff that need to go in the trash too, but my trash can is kind of filled at the moment. Gonna have to wait on that for a bit.

I’ve had some good and bad thoughts floating around in my head. Sometimes I’d like to blog them out, but yet I have family reading this and they’d read my thoughts and want to ask. Thank god for the ones who don’t ask questions. I have dreams at night that I’d like to write about, but they’re kind of bad. Even if I write them down or post them on here somebody’s gonna go, “oh, she’s crazy!” I would have to agree with that statement actually. I just need to let everything go. I just need to release everything. Maybe if I do that, I’ll start healing from all the pain.
