No Fixed Address finds Nickelback adding a bevy of pop, electronic and hip-hop touches to their post-grunge. "What Are You Waiting For?" is an electro-inspired sing-along echoing Lorde's "Royals." "Got Me Runnin' Round" is sexy funk rock featuring rapper Flo Rida. Chad Kroeger and company also turn political: "Edge of a Revolution," a pro-Occupy anthem, calls out the NSA, CIA and Wall Street. Nickelback appear to be developing a sense of classic consciousness. That's pretty awesome, actually. Working-class fans of hard rock could use more Bob Seger and less Ted Nugent in their diets.
