Product Description

Product Description

CD SIRE, 45709-2, 12 Track

Amazon.ca

On this, their second major label release, Barenaked Ladies get romantic without slipping into sappy sentimentality. Wonderfully witty love songs like "Jane," "These Apples," "A," and "Alternative Girlfriend" explore the pitfalls of modern relationships with pointed candor and remarkable eloquence. Throughout, the troupe displays its expected high level of musicianship and vocal expertise, delivering full-bodied performances on every track. As always, Ed Robertson and Steven Page dominate the vocals, turning in particularly fabulous work on "Am I the Only One?" and "The Wrong Man Was Convicted." Perhaps the "hit" from this disc is "Life, In a Nutshell," a charming ditty about, surprisingly enough, a happy relationship. What bliss! --L.A. Smith

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.

Easily, people, the best of their albums..I, unlike most people, was a Barenaked Ladies fan since the beginning, with "Be My Yoko Ono"- I waited for this cd to come out, I ran to the store, and bought it with my "agricultural management" money, went home, and listened to it, straight through, once. I was amazed. I had kind of expected a let down, after the many, many, bad second albums, and I was pleasantly surprised. I must have listened to it a hundred times, all the way through that next month alone, and i was hooked. Barnaked Ladies surpassed REM as my favortie band of all time (and trust me, they're hard to beat)-but melodically, and lyrically, MYSD is far superior to Gordon, and any albums that came a long- Born on a Pirate Ship was the inevitable let down, but thats a different review. The album kicks off with "Jane" a great song about unrequited love in the mid-nineties,with a great riff,and a catchy chorus. 2-"Intermittently"-the pain of a breakup, the searching to get her back, and the need to be embraced by anyone, after they are gone, is captured quaintly, in this song-3."These Apples"-Like many songs on this album, a love song, but with a humorous twist, and a clever hook, women are, remember, the root of all evil...(these apples are delicious)-4."You Will Be Waiting-simple, aesthetic, song about love. Beautiful-5."A"-concert favorite. Fun, upbeat, and funny, a great song-6."Everything Old Is New Again"- a song about the disaffected youth of the nineties,and their feelings.7-"Alternative Girlfirend"-Another love song with a twist, about different sort of girlfriend.8-"Am I The Only One?Read more ›

Most of the people I know who are into BNL seem to think this is the group's weakest album. I couldn't disagree more. While Gordon was a tough act to follow, Maybe You Should Drive was a fantastic second album, continuing the tradition of shiveringly perfect harmonies, ultra-clever lyrics, and so much fun you almost have to restrain yourself from jumping around the room with glee.
Possibly I'm prejudiced by the fact that I first saw the band in concert during the tour for this album. The sheer joy I got from seeing BNL live has always been linked in my mind with Maybe You Should Drive. "Jane," "Intermittently," "These Apples," "A," "Alternative Girlfriend," "Life, In A Nutshell"... all such strong, funny, bouncy, wild tunes... this album always seems fresh and new to me.
From "A": "A is for Algebra, I learned it in school/A is what Fonzie said cause he was very cool."
From "Jane," a pop culture reference so specific to the time of the recording, it was obscure 6 months later: "No promises as vague as Heaven/No Juliana next to my Evan."
And here is the entirety of "Little Tiny Song," a 62-second nugget of bizarreness from bassist Andrew Creggan: "Hey I'm a cow, I'm curious/Hey watch me now, I'm furious/Hey I'm a cow, I'm full of hate/Hey watch me now, I'm on your plate."
The songs and albums to follow Maybe You Should Drive were (and are) always good and often great, but this was the last BNL album that felt like 100% fun to me. You need to own it.
