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 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 Not bad....not bad at all Feb. 16 2004
By AL
Format:Audio CD
Being a fan of many different styles of music I was surprised that it took me till that car commercial to find the fabulous music of BNL. After that faithful day watching TV I bought Stunt and have never looked back. I bought this greatest hits CD to help round out the collection and was not disappointed at all. Following is a rating on each song, well my rating any way...
1. The Old Apt/ 9/10
2. Falling for the First Time/ 10/10
3. Brian Wilson/ the live version is goo but I was never a big fan of the song in the first place./ 4/10
4. One Week/10/10 obviously the start of my obsessive madness
5. Be My Yoko Ono/ 9/10 because their never ending ability to crack me up
6. Alternative Girlfriend/ 8/10 rockish but still good
7. Its Only Me/ 6/10 but it grows on you
8. If I had $1000000/ listen to it 200 times, and it will still be funny
9. Call and Answer/ 8/10
10. Get in Line/ 5/10
11. Its all Been Done/ 9/10
12. Jane/ 6/10
13. Lovers in a Dangerous Time/ 6/10
14. Pinch Me/ 10/10
15. Shoebox/ 10/10
16. What a Good Boy/ 10/10 This one is just great
17. Too Little Too Late/ 10/10 goofy fun just plain lovable
18. Enid/ 9/10
19. Thanks that was fun/ 10/10 A new one but earns its place with the best.
As always BNL is great and this collection of new and old showcases their talent from every light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD....Has All Of The Hits Feb. 15 2004
By scott
Format:Audio CD
Im a relatively new and old BNL fan. In second grade i bought Stunt when it first came out, as my first CD. I listened to that thing every day...loved it. Then i discovered rap and was hooked on the catch beats and whatnot. But now that im halfway through my 8th grade year, i got tired of the made for TV rappers who had no fan relations and took their music waaaaay too serious. I was playing my old NHL 2002 video game, and heard "It's Only Me" on it. I remembered that i still had stunt so i went and popped it into the sterio. And with that i havn't looked back. I love every song. Wanting to sample some of the music from their other cd's tha i had missed out on, I bought BNL's greatest hits. WOW. Their music is so liberating compared to the either dark and dirty, or flashy rap music. All i can say is that Brian Wilson and Old Apartment are great pieces of work that didnt get nearly enought media credit. To all the readers of this, please go buy this CD. BNL's Music is amazing. They can be funny, romantic and thoughtful all in the same song. What a relief that the music indistry has a group like this to fall on when all else fails.
