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.

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 ›

Probably their best album, maybe behind Are Men. This album contains many of the Barenaked Ladies best songs. One Week is incredibly catchy and you can listen to it many, many times. Never Is Enough is funny the first time you here it, and after that it continues to please. Who needs sleep is a great song, maybe made better if you actually have insomnia. Some of the songs took a while for me, but there are only 3 tracks on this album that I didn't like. I'll be that girl and In the car aren't bad songs, so it is very possible that you will enjoy them, but they ventured into a realm of weird that's not for me. When you dream is just dull, so much so in fact that it took a Wikipedia search to find out that there are two hidden songs at the end of it. Of those two songs, She's on time is good and long way back home has the quality of When you dream.

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.

Its hard for me to find many late 1990's records that I like. The over emphasis on technology and the overreliance of talking one's lyrics instead of singing them has made much of music today somewhat below standard when compared to other eras. However, in the case of the Barenaked Ladies Stunt, everything seems to work perfectly. The rap section in One Week is very complimentary to the hook laden chorus. This song is both radio friendly yet creative. It has some special effects yet there is a good backbeat. The other songs are all very strong and written from the heart. Call And Answer is a special gem as it portrays a relationship in distress. Alcohol shows the light hearted sound of the Ladies as it chugs along quite nicely and woul;d fit into any non-rap party environment. In general each of the songs displays a fresh arrangement and a captivating rhythm. Nothing is over emphasized. That is the key reason why I rate this recording as the best release for 1998.
