This is one of those cd's that can be easily overlooked and dismissed. I honestly didnt give it much of a chance at first but I just saw them with Alanis Morrisette and Nellie McKay in columbus Ohio and was blown away by some of these new songs. My wife still says she wasnt as impressed with the newer songs and they werent as good as the older ones that she knew more of. I felt the opposite. I loved the music , the wit, sarcasm and lyrics of this new cd are often as good and sometimes better then earlier releases. The cd's opening track Celebrity is slower then im used to them opening a disc with but it works. Maybe Katie is a catchy 3 minute song that I could see bieng a single. Another Postcard has that BNL sound that really draws people in,It took a while to grow on me though. When I first heard it on the radio I didnt like it that much at all. The band also left it off their setlist at the show we saw. I expected them to possibly do it during the encore but that didnt happen either. We were all shocked. Next time slows the cd down a little bit but it isnt a bad song. Not one of the best on the cd but I didnt feel like skipping it like a few past reviews had stated. For You is an acoustic song that really worked well live during a small acoustic set they did with the entire band singing. Its alot differant sound for them. Almost has a country feel to it but it shows a new range for the band to expand into. Shopping for me was the highlight of the concert and the cd for me and my wife both! They did synchronized swimming with shopping carts (that was viewed from above on cameras) This just needed to be seen to be believed. This also is my favorite song on the Everything for Everyone cd. testing 1,2,3 just seems like something that would have been on one of their older releases.Read more ›

I didn't buy this album yet, but I know the songs; "Testing 1 2 3" and "Another Postcard." There both great songs!! "Testing 1 2 3" is my FAVORITE one out of all the songs they ever made! Did you know...I've loved the BNLs literally all my life?!? And the video for; "Falling for the First Time" is hilarious! As saying...there GREAT as usaul!

I'm a big fan of Barenaked Ladies, but I have to admit that "Everything to Everyone" threw me for a loop. I resisted buying it based on negative word of mouth reviews (i.e., it sucks; you won't like it; it's not your "typical" Bnl CD). I wasn't knocked over when I first heard it, but neither was I disappointed. Although I think "Another Postcard" is an irritiatingly silly ditty and a poor choice for the album's first single, it has this knack for getting into your head like an earwig. After one or two listenings you'll be singing along with it, at least the chorus line.
In my view, "Maybe Katie", a catchy pop tune about the ambivalence some guys go through in dating older women (with kids) would have made a much better first single and I imagine when "Postcard" starts slipping that the label will release it. Other tracks worthy of note are "Next Time", which shows a heavy XTC influence, the bluegrass tinged "For You", which sounds like it belongs on the soundtrack album to Cold Mountain, and the breezy, light "Shopping", a lighthearted blast at commercialism that has turned out to be one of my favorite tracks. As with "Next Time", it sounds very much like XTC, but it has a unique 60s downtown influence to it.
One previous reviewer referred to "War on Drugs" as boring and pretentious, a characterization with which I disagree. I think it has great lyrics but a melody that I almost think is predictable for a song about suicide. The main problem I have with this song lies in Steven Page's vocal, which to me sounds strained and off key. Nevertheless, it sends a message to the listener about the futility and uselessness of suicide almost as strong as R.E.M.

Everything to Everyone by Barenaked Ladies is a very good yet underrated CD. The fifth studio release from the band, it is well-worth checking out. For BNL fans, it will provide more of the great music expected from BNL. For the uninitiated, it's a good showcase of what the band can do. The CD ranges from pop sounding to country-esque to other indescribable sounds.
The songs on this CD are diverse in feel and topic. The CD ranges from the bubble-gum pop satire, "Shopping," to the dark ballad about suicide, "War on Drugs." The lyrics are entertaining as always, yet touch on several serious topics. I don't think I can do Everything to Everyone justice, so I just recommend you give it a try.

A mellow, somewhat low key release by BNL with plenty of gems.
That's the brief run down on the disc. To be more specific, while it's no "Gordon" (BNL's masterpiece a la Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" or Michael Jacksons' "Thriller" for example) if you buy it realizing that fact you'll find an enjoyable experience. "Another Postcard" is one of the oddest hits (but it just burrows its weirdness into your head and stays put). "Maybe Katie" is a prime BNL single candidate. I like BNL when they illuminate a real life find of experience or mentality ("When I Fall" is a great example from Pirate Ship) and in this case they do so very well with "Take It Outside", one of the best cuts.
The lukewarm response to this record is unfortunate since the band always releases thoughtful, enjoyable pop. In a fair world some of the pop shlock that rises to the top would be gone and room would be made for better, consistent bands like BNL.
