Product Description

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). [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

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

A lot of older BNL fans say that this album is a sellout for the band, and that Box Set has become a self-fullfilling prophecy. Others might think that Barenaked Ladies are simply a one-hit wonder band. But this is simply not true. While the album is definitely not Gordon, it still rocks, and it's still BNL. It's just different. Alright, so it's more produced than they're earlier stuff, but they're still the same bunch of guys who write excellent lyrics. I'll admit, I bought Stunt because of One Week and It's All Been Done. However, now that I have the CD, those are my two least favorite songs off of the album. "I'll be That Girl" is different, with it's dark lyrics juxtaposed to the upbeat music. "Call and Answer" is an excellent ballad-type song that did not get the radio play that it deserved. "Alcohol" is not what it first seems to be. And of course, if you're ever having an insomniac moment a la "Who Needs Sleep" just pop in "When You Dream" a really thought provoking lullabye. This CD was the first I ever bought that I could listen to straight through without skipping any of the tracks, and it's not even the Barenaked Ladies best. If you can, find the LE, which has two extra tracks. "Long Way Back Home" is excellent, even if it does have a bit of a country feel to it.

This CD is a great one although their earlier albums are superior (particularly Gordon and Born on a Pirate Ship.) It is well worth the money. Stunt is a fabulous eclectic CD with some songs that are a serious and sad (like "Call and Answer") and some that are fast and funny (like "Some Fantastic" or their Radio hit "One Week".) Everyone has probably heard "One Week" and if you liked it you should DEFINATALY buy this CD. If you didn't like it then you should buy the CD anyway because all of the other songs are much better than that song even though it is already fantabulous.

Alright, let's get one thing straight--I see lots of one-star reviews on this page absolutely trashing this album because all the songs didn't sound exactly like "One Week." If you're bitching about that fact, it's no one's fault but your own for following the masses running out to buy the CD for the one song getting radio airplay. Those who took the time to find out know that none of Barenaked Ladies' previous work is particularly similar to "One Week," and unsurprisingly, nor is the rest of Stunt. Almost all of the songs on the CD are very listenable, but just as they don't plunge to the depths of experimental mediocrity that some songs on previous releases do, nor do Stunt's tracks soar to the same brilliance. "One Week" is great, and "It's All Been Done," "Call and Answer," and "I Told You So" are also strong efforts, but many of the songs on the album are not particularly compelling or meaningful. The well-polished, risk-free songs are nice to listen to, but lack the passion and energy of their live work (one of my recurring criticisms of the Ladies' studio work), and lack the experimental tricks and rough edges that mark some of their most brilliant work. There aren't any songs on this album with the raw passion of "Break Your Heart," the infectious energy of "Brian Wilson" or the blend of musical styles and instruments that drives "Straw Hat and Old Dirty Hank." Further, the Ladies' writing proves a double-edged sword, as their wittiness sets apart some songs, but mars others. "Light Up My Room," for instance, features good music and a neat central image to build a song around, but cutesy, semi-nonsense verses keep the song from reaching its huge potential.Read more ›

From the opening track, "One Week", and its rhythmic magic and lyrical genius, you can tell that this album is truly a masterpiece. But "One Week" is far from the only "happening tune" on this album. In true Barenaked Ladies fashion, every song is outstanding, and unique. Second on the CD is the feel-good '60s-style "It's All Been Done", which is reminisent of the Brady Bunch and the Partridge Family, but good. Next, "Light Up My Room" is a melodically soothing ballade that far surpasses the boring monotonous efforts of other groups to attemp this style of song. Fourth on the disc is another pinnacle, "I'll Be That Girl". Very catchy, it has a sort of mysterious sound that is sure to have listeners crying for more. Next comes the country twang sound of "Leave". It is craftily mixed to attract country fans and country haters alike and is simply another style the Ladies have perfected. The album's sixth track is one of the groups all time greatest. "Alcohol" recreates the magic of "The Old Appartment" with its beat, and gets the blood pumping with its envigorating energy. Throw in the Ladies' witty lyrics and it becomes an instant classic. Seventh is the love-torn tune "Call and Answer", from which emenates a rarely created feel-good melancholy. Next is the techno hit "In The Car", which combines Beach Boys Style surfer attitude, a great chorus, and sexy, subtly racy lyrics. Track nine, "Never Is Enough", is a pure example of BNL's lyrical genius, combining youthful free spirit with an addictingly different sound. Following this gem is "Who Needs Sleep", with a beat that will have the whole family head-banging in no time.Read more ›
