"Their breakthrough (4th) album with the ubiquitous "One Week," but nearly every song stands on its own legs. Highlights include "Who Needs Sleep?" "Some Fantastic" "I'll Be That Girl" and "In the Car." Shows off the band's ability to fuse elements of folk into a pop rock album."
"Their sound departs from their folk roots into a more electric, majestic fifth album - an hour long meditation on aimlessness and the meaning of life. It begins with realization, and ends with death. The secret track "Hidden Sun" lifts you into an ethereal heaven. Highlights include: "Falling for the First Time," "Helicopters", "Too Little Too Late.""
"Barenaked Ladies are known for their live performances, and this is a perfect showcase. All their pre-Stunt greats. One of the best-sounding live albums this reviewer has ever heard, and every track a stunner. Highlights: "Brian Wilson," "These Apples," "What A Good Boy.""
"Their 1st album, the one that made them stars in Canada, and easily one of their best. Mostly acoustic, it has a much different sound from their later albums. Highlights include "Brian Wilson," "Crazy," and "What A Good Boy.""
"Their newest album, and the first without Steven Page, really surprises. A much more focused and raw album, with songs led by keyboardist Kevin Hearn and bassist Jim Creeggan. Standout tracks: "Ordinary," "Summertime," "On The Lookout""
"The album (along with its companion) is decidedly less cohesive than earlier ones, but the individual songs are great. Highlights include the Kevin Hearn led "Another Spin," "I Can I Will I Do" and "What A Letdown.""
"Released in 2006, this seventh album is similar to "Are Men," but a little softer. It finds the band experimenting with their sound, such as the Decemberists-esque "Everything Had Changed," and the piano-based "Take it Back.""
"Great collection of hits, but if you have all the other albums, get this one for "Get In Line", "Wizard of Magic Land" "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" and "Thanks That Was Fun" - all great additions to the BNL catalog."
"The Christmas album. Many traditional songs, a few original. A bit silly at times, even for BNL, but some good tracks: "Green Christmas" and one of the surprising best BNL songs period: "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen / We Three Kings (With Sarah Mc Lachlan)""
