This gets four stars only because the wackiness that epitomized Gordon is totally gone in this follow-up album. Possibly because they changed Producers (from Wojewoda to Mink) the sound is the same, but the subject matter is quite a bit different. Also new are a couple songs that I could do without. These Apples and A are not (IMHO) the strongest tracks, but I wouldn't skip them consistently. Particular favorites are Jane, Everything Old Is New Again, and Life, In A Nutshell. This album seems more moody than Gordon, probably because while the cleverness in the songwriting is still there, the whimsical subject matter is absent.

I dunno why anyone would say the humour is gone from BNL in this album. This is one of the honestly creative works I've ever heard. Every single track is a gem, and I would say this album is easily one of the best records of the '90s. RECOMMENDED.

Two of the songs on this album (Everything Old is New Again and The Wrong Man Was Convicted) got me through a particularly difficult breakup with my girlfriend at the time. Needless to say, this album has a special place in my collection. It's a good listen all-around, and if you're in a difficult emotional state like I was, it may strike a chord with you as well. BNL has always been one of my favorite bands, and this album is a prime example of the way that BNL pours their collective heart and soul into their work.

The Barenaked Ladies struck big with "Gordon" in 1992, introducing their trademark humor, cleverness, quirkiness, and excellent musical craftsmanship to become the biggest band in the Great White North. But it took a while for the Ladies to cross the borders of their giant homeland. However, the millions of Canadian fans and the thousands of non-Canadian fans wanted more, and they successfully delivered with "Maybe You Should Drive". Their sophomore album failed to make the dough, but passed with flying colors in quality. Right from the front album cover you know these guys are something else. This is one of the best albums BNL has ever released, and there's a good reason why. They show they're more than capable of writing thought-provoking pop songs, and they musical virtuosity has greatly improved as well. The album opens up with the fantastic "Jane" and the severely overlooked "Intermittently", which wins by a hair compared to the album's most popular tune, "Alternative Girlfriend". "These Apples" is a fine song about miscommunication between men and women, and the banjo solo is hilariously blissful. One wonders how Ed Robertson delivered that with a straight face. "A" is a clever song with a bit of a jazzy Latin feel to it, and "You Will Be Waiting" is also great. "Am I The Only One?" and "The Wrong Man Was Convicted" are very provocative and thoughtful, though "Am I..." is more profound, telling the tale of the aftershock of the death of Ed Robertson's brother. Overall, "Maybe..." opens up the band's more sensitive side, and is an overlooked gem in a field of colorless stones. Do yourself a favor, and check it out.
FINAL SCORE-9.75/10

This cd is a must-have for any old-school Barenaked Ladies fans. You know who you are. You're the ones who say, "I liked them before they were famous." That means you prefer Gordon (their best cd in my opinion) to Stunt or Maroon, and you think their radio songs are some of their worst stuff. If you fit into this category, you need this cd. There are a few classic BNL songs that make the cd worth buying.
For those of you who are new fans and like their newer, catchier, more pop-ish stuff that plays on the radio, there is some stuff on this cd for you, too.
And thirdly, for those of you who were recommended BNL but aren't sure if you like them, this is a good cd to start with because it contains both styles of music that they play: their non-mainstream hard-to-classify rock and their pop rock. If you like certain songs but not others on the cd, you'll know which other cds of theirs to buy.
Some highlights (rated out of 5):
1. Jane: 3 - also on their live cd. Live version is of course better
3. These Apples: 2 - never liked this one, too whiny. on the live cd, too
5. A: 4 - cutesy, catchy, but not annoying
6. Everything old...: 3 - cutesy, catchy, slightly annoying (more like the new stuff)
7. Alternative Girlfriend: 3 - little too catchy for me (new fans enjoy)
10. Life In A Nutshell: 5 - on the live cd but it's good to hear the original for contrast. They're both great but in different styles
11. Wrong Man: 5 - Great classic BNL
12. Great Provider: 5 - Great classic BNL
In short, fans of all types will find something to like in this album. The last three songs are the best. Life in a Nutshell is different from the live cd version, it's less up-beat.

To this CD that is. Maybe You Should Drive and Stunt are my favorite BNL recordings. They are more mature than Gordon, but still pleasingly playfull. BNL are a refreshing experience compared to so much loud, heavy, hateful rap-metal-punk bands these days. These Canadians continue to prove their musical and lyrical talents. This is a good buy. 4 stars.
