Barenaked Ladies follow the certified-Gold success of Rock Spectacle with their hotly anticipated new studio album - Stunt. Featuring a dozen of the greatest, most tuneful, most sharply observed songs they've ever written, Barenaked Ladies have created a stunning album that ranges from the ferociously bouncy to the flat-out heartbreaking. Now that Canada's finest musical exports have finally smashed into the American marketplace (with nearly 1.5 million combined sales), Stunt should prove to be their biggest success yet. Certified at 4 million units by the RIAA. (9/99).
The Ladies have done more than lie in bed the way Brian Wilson did; they've spent some quality sandbox time mastering the intricacies of catchy pop records, hooks and all. Sounding at times like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young after a week in the Caribbean, the Ladies mix a dash of rap with a pop backbeat on "One Week," while "It's All Been Done" is classic 1960s Top 40, right down to the "woo-hoo-hoo" backing vocals. The lyrics are the hidden joy on this record, with lines like "I love you more than I did the week before I discovered alcohol" and the male voice singing about tying his pantyhose around his neck. The songs are well crafted and the production flushes out the Ladies' hidden musical talents, resulting in their best effort since Gordon. --Katie Sigler

I was pleasantly surprised when I popped the CD into my player. What a nice montage of musical styles. Not only does this CD cover a lot of musical ground, but the proficiency of the playing and singing is equally enjoyable. And then there's the lyrics... simple on the surface, but actually deep and meaningful in places. (Of course "One Week" doesn't fall into this category, but it's a heckuva lot of fun nonetheless) One example of the better lyrics is "Light In My Room". It has an almost sarcastic naivetÃ© to it, even though the average person might simply and easily dismiss it as nothing more than oddball drivel. And then there's "When You Dream". For anyone who's ever stared at their little baby boy or girl sleeping, this song is almost poignant. There's even a reference to the late, great, Del Shannon!
From a creative standpoint, the quality and quantity of this CD reminded me a lot of Lenny Kravitz; another artist who's not afraid to explore all kinds of musical territory.
For someone in his or her 40's, CDs like Stunt are not only enjoyable to listen to, they're comforting in the sense that they make you realize that there's still good music out there, played on real instruments by real musicians, with lyrics that actually are lyrics; not adrenaline-laden screaming or repetitive common denominator rap rhyming.
If you're in the same age group as me, go get this CD. You won't regret it.
One Week: Great song. This song is the reason I wanted this album. Now that I have listened to all of the tracks this one only seems mediocre.
It's All Been Done: My Third Favorite song here and it never seems to get old and I could listen to it forever.
Light up my Room: A rather slow song, but I still like it. This song you have to let grow on you because it took me a little while to get used to it and actually like it.
I'll be that Girl: Good but not great this song is worth listening only a couple of times before it gets really annoying annd on your nerves
Leave: This song is better than the one before but not by much. A song like this would sound much better at the end of the album but it is a good song none the less.
Alcohol: My favorite song on this album with its eclectic sound, funny vocals, Strange guitar riffs, and the great piano at the very end. Eventhough it took me half a year to like this song it is now one of my favorites of all time.
Call and Answer: My second favorite song. Who cares if it is rather slow? This song is not really my style but I just can't seem to stop liking it. My most favorite part is at the very end when there is that great piano solo. It wouldn't hurt to also take a look at the lyrics.
In the Car: This song is to slow for my style and I really hate the lyrics and that is all I have to say about it.
Never is Enough: This song is pretty good if you know the probems of trying to keep a job.Read more ›
