Product Description

Amazon.ca

Electrifying performers and pure-pop songwriters of the highest order, Toronto's Barenaked Ladies have emerged over a decade as that strangest of beasts. They'll never land a dishy cover story in Mojo Magazine, but as they reflect on those ribald years between 1991 and 2001, the five can allow themselves wry smiles, knowing that sometimes, just sometimes, the cream rises to the top. In addition to familiar radio staples such as "Pinch Me," "The Old Apartment," "Jane," "Alternative Girlfriend," and the ubiquitous "One Week," there's a trump card on All Their Greatest Hits that will prove irresistible to completists: the Ladies' buttery, acoustic version of Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time." Recorded eons ago for a Cockburn tribute disc that almost immediately went out of print, the song has until now been a rare and highly coveted collector's item. Two news songs--"Thanks That Was Fun" and "It's Only Me (The Wizard of Magicland)"--were recorded specifically for this collection, while two others ("Brian Wilson" and "What a Good Boy") are captured live. But what really brings this album home is, ironically, "If I Had $1,000,000." One of their very first hits cut as the Ladies were learning to dovetail their so-called "acoustic hip-hop" into slicker pop sensibilities, "$1,000,000"--a simple knock-kneed love song with harmonies so tight they're practically braided--is a snapshot of a band with all the pieces in place just as the planets were about to align. --Kim Hughes

5.0 out of 5 stars Smart AND Fun Dec 12 2001
Format:Audio CD
How often do you find fun music that's intelligent? I must confess I'd only heard a few songs from BNL (you know, the same ones played over and over on small midwestern stations - smashed between the flavors of the moment) but a friend said I'd enjoy this compilation. I've had it three days and can't stop listening.
BNL's lyrics blend witty with silly (and I mean that in the fondest, pop culture sense) creating a magical experience when you get their references and something to puzzle over for a while if you don't. Their sound is so enticing - take away the least little riff or harmony and you'd be left with the typical blasé drivel permeating the airwaves today.
Each song has a short commentary by Steven Page. Since I'm not at all familiar with the group (individually or musically) this was a great way to quickly connect to what I was hearing. Every song I first heard and went, "Yuck!" quickly became a favorite after reading its story. Now I'm looking forward to seeing them live.
I'm sure it's been said before, but if you are new to BNL or only want to buy one CD, this is the one to invest in.

5.0 out of 5 stars vintage Barenaked Ladies April 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is easy-listening rock that does not suck. Barenaked Ladies basically sound like the Beach Boys but better, more depth and talent. This is a great collection of their best songs, new and old. they also have the best name of any band <g>

5.0 out of 5 stars definitely all their greatest hits Jan. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
Barenaked Ladies have a great place in music. They release songs that are funny, catchy, and thought-provoking. This collection captures the ones that made it to the radio. Sometimes, that's not what you want as an introduction to a band, but occasionally it works. This compilation definitely works.
I put this album into my CD player (well, usually my iPod) when I want to be in a good mood. There is simply no resisting the toe-tapping goodness of 'Alternative Girlfriend' and their early hit 'If I had $1,000,000'. 'Jane' and the cover of 'Lovers in a Dangerous Time' prove that the Barenaked Ladies aren't just funny, but can weave a tight song comprised of excellent vocals and a strong band.
Even if this is the only Barenaked Ladies album that you'll ever own, go see their live concerts. A concert with them is not to be missed. They add hilarious improvs, do impromptu covers of any artist under the sun, and comfortably chat with the audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars I feel barenaked without this. Sept. 28 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Any level of "BNL" fan will like this. It's simply 19 of their best songs. Whether you want the hits "One week", "Pinch Me", and "If I Had $1,000,000", or the fan favorites "The Old Apartment", "It's All Been Done", and "Brian Wilson" live, this is sure to please. Also included is the hard to come by cover of "Lover's in a Dangerous time". If you don't recognize some of the songs here, they're all as good as the others. Bottom line, if you're a fan who only want's one "BNL" cd, this is the one to get. You'll be playing it for far more than "One Week".

4.0 out of 5 stars A terrific collection of catchy songs... July 22 2003
By Twist
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of BNL ever since a friend of mine asked me if I wanted "...this annoying CD I bought off the bargain table - but I think it's your type of thing." The CD was 'Rock Spectacle', and I was hooked immediately. When they toured, I jumped to buy tickets (word to the wise: even if you're only a slight BNL fan, you MUST go to one of their concerts - it's the most fun you'll have all year). So I was thrilled to hear a couple of the newer songs I'd heard performed live ('The Wizard of Magicland', 'Falling for the First Time') on this CD.
The Ladies are very funny, a little strange, and very smart. The lyrics are never cheap, and you'll find yourself catching more and more in the songs, the more you listen. The songs on this CD range from the more "made for radio air-time" hits like 'One Week' and 'It's All Been Done' to the sadder 'Call and Answer' and 'What a Good Boy'. They even sing love songs...of a sort. What girl wouldn't want to be a guy's Yoko Ono? Right....don't answer that.
The point is, this CD is the perfect soundtrack for a cynical but hopeful generation of kooks. It has a place of honor in my CD collection, and never gets old or fails to cheer me up.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best Oct. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD is the best of the best and has the place of honour in my collection. I began my BNL journey when a friend forgot her Rock Spectacle CD at my house and I played it to see what it was about. I had low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. With live versions of Brian Wilson and What a Good Boy, two previously unreleased tracks and a new version of Lovers in a Dangerous Time, this CD proves undisputedly that the Barenaked Ladies truly are the kings of Canadian music.
1) The Old Apartment: A great song that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. This is one of my favourites on the CD.
2) Falling for the first time: An upbeat, catchy song about a guy who realizes the joy in failing.
3) Brian Wilson: A truly great song that was the first BNL song I ever heard. Once I heard the first chorus, I was hooked.
4) One Week: A catchy song with a bit of rap, I think this song is great. It's one of my favourites.
5) Be My Yoko Ono: For some reason, I don't care for this song much. It's a decent song that gets annoying after awhile.
6) Alternative Girlfriend: A reasonably good track, Alternative girlfriend has a nice beat that I never get tired of.
7) It's Only Me (The Wizard of Magicland): One of the two previously unreleased tracks, I like this song because of it's hilarious lyrics and catchy beat.
8) If I had $1 000 000: This is my favourite Barenaked Ladies song so far. This song never gets boring.
9) Call and Answer: A ballad with heartfelt lyrics that I enjoy very much.
10) Get In Line: I have to say, this track stretches the definition of 'Greatest Hits.' I usually skip this song.
11) It's All Been Done: A very fun song to sing, especially the "Woo hoo hoo" chorus.
