So this is the first BNL CD following the departure of Steven Page. The guys seemed to have carried on with no apparent difficulty, as All In Good Time is one of their better albums in recent years. (Incidentally, Mr. Page is reportedly working on a solo album, and he also collaborated with the Art of Time Ensemble not too long ago.) In this quartet edition of the band, Ed Robertson continues as the primary lead vocalist and songwriter, although Kevin Hearn and Jim Creeggan split the lead singer and songwriter roles on five of the CD's 14 songs. While Good Time does contain several faster tunes such as "Golden Boy," the predominant mood is an introspective one, exemplified by the gentle ballad "I Saw It," a Creeggan song. The album's closing cut, "Watching The Northern Lights," from Mr. Hearn, is another mellow beauty. These new songs are often lovely melodies that sound really good coming out of the speakers, buds or earphones. After the first three tracks, I was also wondering if BNL had lost their sense of whimsy and wackiness. But then came "Four Seconds," one of those clever, rapid-lyrics wordplay songs they give us from time to time. This one has a kind of manic old-timey vibe. For me, All In Good Time was indeed a good time from beginning to end.

What do you do when you've lost half the duo that was the heart and soul of your band? Let the whole band be your heart & soul. Sure, you can still have your leader, but he was so good, you have to replace him with the rest of the band. Thus is the approach Barenaked Ladies have taken with the creation of this new album & the departure of Steven Page. Think about it, every major hit BNL has had has involved Page. The result is a more complete, but also more mature & slightly less interesting & original BNL.

Highlights Include:
Summertime
Four Seconds
On the Lookout
How Long

Original co-founder with Page, Ed Robertson is still the most seasoned & has the most consistently good songs in the band, but it is nice to actually hear the other members, all of which make a vocal appearance, if not songwriting appearance at some point in the album. Kevin Hearn takes the softer more folk approach to his songs (something you'd never have heard on a BNL album before, probably for good reason), and Jim Creeggan takes a more adult contemporary approach, in the vain of a Rob Thomas. But even with the new changes, something is still very noticeably off. Take for example lyrics like this:

"Even a busted watch is right twice a day"

Now, I may just be forgetting and the band may have had poorly written and lazy lyrics like this in the Page days, but it becomes all the more noticeable now. Something is off, and the band just isn't the same anymore. What's worse is that they've gone forcibly headlong mostly in the the lite hits/adult contemporary genre. If you're a fan of that genre, which the band had always hung around, you'll be very pleased with this album.

First, let me say that this is not a bad CD. It is not great but it is not bad either.

If I try to listen to All In Good Time and not think that I am listening to The Barenaked Ladies, it seems better. I keep wondering if I would be looking at this differently if they would have changed the band name after Steven Page left. If you have ever listened to the two albums The Doors recorded after Jim Morrison passed away you know how empty they sound. The same can be said for this. If The Doors would have changed their name to something else and put Other Voices and Full Circle out, they may have been received differently.

The gaping hole left in this band by Steve's departure cannot be ignored. Ed, Kevin, Jim, and Tyler all have great musical abilities and will always have my respect but Steve was the guy that made it all work. Ed has had some incredible songs and vocal performances in the past but to me All In Good Time sounds like a half-hearted effort on his part.

I wish nothing but the best for The Barenaked Ladies and I hope I am proved wrong and this CD becomes a great success for them. The writing seems to be on the wall though. I just hope that if they choose to continue on they will have stronger material to offer in the future.

If history has taught us anything, no band has ever survived well after the departure of one its key members. There is usually a downhill slide of one mediocre release after another and the next thing you know they are playing the Indian casino circuit. I hope so much this will not be the path for this band. They have been magnificent and deserve much better than that.

Yes ok Steve left... but the band is still great. I have seen them twice since he left and they are still the same band but different. They have added a different dimension with Jim and Kevin singing. I guess if you just liked Steve then you will not like this album. I keep listening to this album and the songs are great! The lyrics are still engaging and the music is toe tapping. I keep having to remind myself that HE is gone.... that means I'm not missing him. With an open mind listen....
