Being a long-time BNL fan, I bought this CD excitedly, hoping that I would have another BNL album that I'll listen to for years. Several long-time fans have complained that this is no "Gordon." "Gordon" was the Barenaked Ladies' definitive masterpiece, and it is impossible to repeat its grandeur. However, this is a very good album. It has several songs that sound like big hits, and are likely to repeat the successes of "Pinch Me" and "One Week." I would recommend this disc to both new fans who don't know much about this group of talented musicians, and to long-time fans. The best tracks are "Second Best," "Testing 1,2,3," and "Take it Outside." If you get a chance to see these guys in concert, buy tickets immediately. I saw them last week on their "E2E" tour, and it was one of the best shows I've ever been to. It features much of their new stuff, their golden classics, and most of the songs from 2000's platinum-selling hit, "Maroon," (my favorite BNL album, and in my opinion, one of the best albums of this decade). Whether you dig modern rock, folk, or traditional pop-rock,"E2E" is worth your money.
