Product Description

Amazon.ca

Filled with clever lyrics that range from the blatantly cynical to the mildly romantic, Born on a Pirate Ship offers more of the same musical fun the Barenaked Ladies put forth on their debut CD, Gordon, and its follow-up, Maybe You Should Drive. From the manic ravings of "Straw Hat and Old Dirty Hank," a musical exploration of celebrity-stalking, to the bluesy lament of "Break Your Heart," BNL serve up a musical complexity and rare intelligence that separate them from the pack of mostly acoustic bands who dominate radio playlists. Highlights include "The Old Apartment," and anthem about trying to recapture lost youth and "When I Fall," a haunting song about a professional window washer. While it lacks some of the raw energy of their earlier releases, Born on a Pirate Ship is still a fine offering, and the ECD clips are worth the price of the disc. --L.A. Smith

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but still not their best! Nov. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album contains a few of BNL's best songs. The lyrics are the best part of this cd, they're humorous and witty. My favorite song is also on this album, "This is Where it Ends." Another great one is Jim Creegan's song-writing debut (for BNL on an album, anyway) "There's a Spider in My Room" which is filled with all the quirkiness that BNL fans adore. Also on this album are three originals from the more-popular live album, "Old Apartment," "Break Your Heart," and "When I Fall." It's worthwhile to listen to the originals, but on the live cd the songs have much more intensity.
Some songs previously not mentioned that are worth mentioning are "Show Box," and "In the Drink," which are both fun light songs.
All in all, a great cd for old fans and new ones. A very close second to their best album, Gordon.

4.0 out of 5 stars BNL Returns to their youth Nov. 4 2003
By Lavode
Format:Audio CD
With the return of Wojewoda as Producer, this is closer in subject matter to Gordon, dealing with childhood themes, but also early adulthood themes. Still absent is the biting satire that made Gordon so memorable. A strong album, this seems to set a trend in BNL albums: one or two songs that just don't work. Specifically, Spider In My Room and In The Drink are simply bad. By contrast, some of the songs are fantastic. Notables are Shoe Box, Straw Hat and Dirty Old Hank, and The Old Apartment. Some great lines in the other songs, like
"I don't buy everything I've read/I haven't read everything I've bought"
Clearly reminiscent of the clever lyrics found in Gordon. Overall a good album, but they still haven't come up with anything as good as Gordon, which is still the best starting place for the band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aye Matey Oct. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed with my first Barenaked Ladies CD, Stunt, that I decieded to seek out some of their other stuff.
Born On A Pirate Ship shares a lot in common with the bands' other work. The music is a mix of up tempo tracks, with clever lyrics and "cotton candy" confectionary, and ballads, that are emotional, without being too sappy. The band is a Canadian import, that has been embraced by the states--their music has a universal appeal--that can cross many a demographic Influenced by the Beatles, but not triying to be them, their sound is fun and never outlives itself.
The CD has 14 tracks and a running time of 51:40 Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Their Bravest Effort Sept. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Barenaked Ladies have a clever style. Super vocal harmonies and snappy arrangements highlight many of their recordings. Whereas Born On A Pirate Ship is certainly strong in the above mentioned categories, the songs are truly hit and miss.
The Old Apartment, Break Your Heart, and Shoebox are clearly the highlights of this CD. Love the steady rock beat of Apartment and Break Your Heart features an outstanding lead vocal by Stephen Paige. Shoebox is a jolly pop tune with fine harmonies.
However, the remaining other songs are either OK or really nothing too special. In The Drink is a little interesting but does drag on a little too long. Oh yes the arrangements are quite clever but the melody on Spider In My Room is fairly unmemorable and even annoying. Same Thing is oh so bland. Other songs like Stomache vs Heart sound like inferior versions of better tunes by this band.
Truthfully, purchase Stunt, then Maroon or even Rock Spectacle but you can certainly live without Born On A Pirate Ship.

Barenaked Ladies, no they are not involved with PlayBoy, they are a very talented band with a very good CD. This CD was the first Barenaked Ladies album that I really liked. It has so many great songs. It starts with great with "Stomach vs Heart," and ends really great with "Shoebox," one of my favorite Barenaked Ladies songs ever. Yes, there are a few songs I don't care for, but for the most part it is a really good CD. I think this CD really showed potential for what thier later sound was be like. So, please give this CD a try, it's a very good pop/rock album.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'd marry this cd if it asked Dec 31 2002
Format:Audio CD
my love affair with BNL began many years ago with Stunt. I've owned all their meaningful albums, and the yellow tape, for quite a while. after listening to each of their cds, oh, about eleventy billion times, this is my favorite.
there are no bad songs. there aren't even any songs that sound the same. each song is brimming with clever lyrics, intriguing instrumentation, and the heart and wit that infuse most of BNL's work. i think of this as their "bitter" album - but they sound so good when they're bitter!
so, if you like nice things, buy this. especially if you like other BNL, because this is better. (MYSD and Gordon are also reeeally good, though...) Don't buy this if you lack a sense of humor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Listen to It 3 Times.. Feb. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
At first, I was not too crazy about this CD. But after listening to the Pirate Ship CD several times, I found that I love 12 out of the the 14 cuts. These guys are genius! Very crafty and ear catching. I like this CD better than STUNT. I though I never would. About 5 or 6 of the songs are very addicting to listen to.
BUY IT!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too cute by half Feb. 2 2002
By J. Reed
Format:Audio CD
Like most Americans, I picked up on BNL around the time of Rock Spectacle and Stunt. Nicely polished little pop tunes with sometimes witty and sometimes brilliant lyrics...what's not to like? I followed my ears to Maroon and then decided to explore the back catalog. Gordon and Maybe I Should Drive are excellent. BOAPS is my most recent excursion into the BNL discography. I really love "The Old Apartment", but if you are (like me) a relative latecomer to this band, you will probably want to shy away from this particular disk. Many of the songs are just masturbatory flings into gimmicky music and nonsensical lyrics. Some of the songs on this disk make "One Week" sound like "Like A Rolling Stone". At the risk of aggravating all you hardcore BNL fans, much of this CD is just simply unlistenable. Fine, I am a Philistine. Fine, I like my pop music to be easily digestible. So do lots of people. If you like more recent BNL, stick to their other releases. This compilation is, in my opinion, not truly representative of their ability to craft fantastic (and frequently insightful) ear candy.
