Product Description

Product Description

Rock stars are parents too! Times are a changing and it is 2008 and we find multi-platinum recording artist Barenaked Ladies releasing Snacktime, a collection of 24 original children's songs through their imprint label Desperation Records. 'Our collective kids now outnumber the band more than 2 to 1,' explains vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson. 'We set out to make a record that would be entertaining for them - not strictly a children's record, but a record that children would really enjoy. Our kids are into all kinds of music. Making the focus about what our kids like was a truly liberating process and fun for the whole band.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh those Canadians! May 19 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
"Raisins come from grapes
People come from apes
I come from Canada"

(lyrics from "Raisins")

This Canadian alt-rock band scores big with my family with this album of 24 original and hilarious songs for kids. For a taste of the album make sure you watch the video on the Amazon product page for the first track "7,8,9", based on the old pun about a very hungry number seven.

Whether they're singing about ninjas or pollywogs, allergies or the alphabet, BNL never fail to bring a smile to your face with the clever lyrics and catchy tunes.

The ones we really like are "The Ninjas"; "Pollywog in a Bog"; "Raisins"; "The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy ii - Popcorn"; "Allergies"; and "I Don't Like". The one that made me smile is "Crazy ABC's", and I'll list a few letters so you can see why.

A is for Aisle
B is for Bdellium
C is for Czar
D is for Djinn

And further down ....

H is for Hour
J is for Jalapeno
M is for Mnemonic
T is for Tsunami

The one small problem is that there are a few too many slower tracks that are pretty good as folk ballads, but not so good at holding the attention of younger kids. Some of these are "Louis Loon", "The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy i - Snacktime"; "The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy iii - Vegetables"; "My Big Sister" and "Bad Day". The melodies are nice, but will be more to the liking of slightly older folk. (Think Gordon Lightfoot)

One fun bit of trivia is that at the end of "The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy i - Snacktime" various people tell you their favorite snacks, and these people include Gordon Lightfoot, Geddy Lee, Lyle Lovett, Sarah MacLachlan, Jason Priestley, Janeane Garofalo and Weird Al Yankovic.

Light-hearted, punny, clever and very, very entertaining - this is an album the whole family can enjoy and sing along to between giggles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ear worms, anyone?! Jan. 19 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic album. So many great songs, such a great fresh view of childhood, and the tunes are so catchy.... I can't get them out of my head, but I don't mind because they're SO MUCH FUN. Special favourites: Pollywog in a Bog, Eraser, I Can Sing, The Canadian Snacktime Trilogy Part One: Snacktime, Humungous Tree, Bad Day, A Word for That, and oooh yes, Crazy ABCs. The Barenaked Ladies are really in tune with what it's like to be a kid, but there's plenty of humour here that grown-ups can enjoy as well, and wisdom, too.

I bought 1 song on itunes and liked it so much I downloaded the whole album. I play it for my granddaughter when she is visiting. I bought this album for her to listen to at home. Our favourite is "6,7,8,10. What happened to 9?.... 7 (ate) 9!"

By MamaPow
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is by far our favourite CD for our toddler son. He loves and so do we. It's not only one of the most tolerable kids' CDs but we actually really enjoy it. We have even put it on a few times when our son wasn't around haha. The lyrics are great and original and the songs are all fun. Some of our favourite tunes are: Raisins, Food Party, Popcorn, Vegetable Town, and Crazy ABC's. The best!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joins the ranks of "children's classics" Aug. 1 2012
Format:Audio CD
The best kid's art, whether it be music, pictures, books, movies, is that which speaks equally well to the adult as it does to the child. When we think of "classics" we might think of Milne's "Winnie the Pooh" or Barrie's "Peter Pan", or Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are", or the early Pixar films. As I've become a parent and visited and revisited children's things, those that speak most to me are the ones that delight my kids, while evoking feelings of nostalgia in myself. Mostly this comes from rediscovering something I loved as a child - but sometimes it comes in a new form that just seems timeless.

Steven Page's arrest for cocaine possession was certainly ill-timed with the release of their first children's album, but The Barenaked Ladies (name withstanding) seem like the perfect band to straddle adult and kids genres. Indeed they are.

Snacktime maybe throws too much into the pot, with 24 tracks (though most are pretty short). And some songs are frankly, too slow for kids to want to sit through. However, there are some real gems here, to be sure. The Ladies' creativity is evident on songs like "7,8,9" and "Crazy ABC's". "Popcorn" and "Ninjas" take me back to my childhood/teen years. And "Canadian Snacktime trilogy" is a wonderful in-joke.

My kids (aged 6 and 4) love this CD and there is much I enjoy here too. In many ways, this is BNL's best album, in terms of pure creativity, since "Gordon". In that case, it was the soundtrack of my college years. This may well be the soundtrack of my children's kid years. A fitting final (?) album from the band before Page departed.
