When I first got this album I wasn't so sure about it because it is more modern and synthesized than their older albums. After a couple of listens I was hooked. The Barenaked Ladies still manage to inject so much energy into their songs that the lyircs come alive and with the catchy tunes on Maroon the results are just amazing. Some people have complained that they have moved too far away from their acoustic sounds that were more prominent in Gordon, MYSD and BOAPS but it really is a natural progression as the band matures.
After having seen the ladies live in concert I was once again obsessed with all of their material and Maroon is definitely up there with all of their other albums. To me their greatest achievement so far has to be Born On A Pirate Ship but Maroon is definitely an album for all fans especially those who have only been around since Stunt. Well worth it!!!

If, like me you came to Barenaked Ladies through One Week and Stunt but have gone on to discover their amazing back catalogue, then you won't be dissapointed. If you've been a fan from Gordon, of from Maybe You Should Drive, or Born On A Pirate Ship, then you won't be dissapointed. This album combines the best styles from all the previous albums, ranging from the catchy 'Pinch Me' and 'Too Little Too Late', to the ballad of 'Helicopters', and a track on a subject few other bands would dare sing about- 'Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel'. If you want instant pop songs like 'One Week' then you may be a little dissapointed, but if you want a heartfelt album, with songs, that after a few plays, will really get into your head, and a great mixture of styles then buy Maroon now. Some bands might struggle to follow up the huge success of an album like 'Stunt'. While 'Maroon' might not be as comercially successful, it's sure to go down very well with their dedicated fan base, because it showcases a fantastic band on top form.

This is by far the best Barenaked Ladies have ever produced. While there is a distinct difference from their earlier stuff and the music that earned them their reputation as a brilliant live band, and even a difference from Stunt, I feel, in the sheer quality of the lyrics and some of the music that accompanies it. It took me a while to get into Maroon, but it is like all good albums, worth persevering with. After two or three listenings of each track, the brilliance of the lyrics especially in Helicopters, Tonight Is The Night I Fell Asleep At The Wheel and Off The Hook shines through and can be appreciated alonside the more familiar BNL sound in Pinch Me and Falling For The First Time. I recommend this album to pure music lovers everywhere. If you want the most sensational mix of humour, lyrical quality and musical merit on the market, buy Maroon.

There's a large moan coming so prepare yourselves. In practice I have given this album a three but for the music I actually give it a four to four and a half. I do love what Barenaked Ladies do in general and can certainly appreciate their weaker songs as they are so prolific. BUT.........the sound quality!!! Yikes!! Guys what happened after Maybe You Should Drive? Their previous albums to this one delivered in all departments and I still play them often and at length. The later albums though, and this one was probably the first to offend, sound so absolutely awful I cannot sit through more than a few minutes. Such a shame as I really like the majority of the songs. It's just the studio tricks that have been pulled to deliver maximum perceived volume have for me rendered them nigh on unplayable. They are harsh, compressed synthetic sounding and just plain awful. Yes I have a decent hifi and I do enjoy this aspect of the replay chain but it's more than me being a sound tweaking geek. Even in my car which has a low to middling system (big sub in the boot though :-) the albums sound only serve to irritate me and increase my chances of having an accident. WHY WHY WHY GUYS?!!! I record a bit and I own a decent 24 track multitracker. I'm no professional sound engineer at all (professional engineers do know what they are doing but they have to conform to the norm) but I have some idea of what to do to get a basic ok sound. It's got so bad though now that I no longer buy Barenaked Ladies albums. I like the songs and I like the group and their brand of humour and penmanship but there is no point in me buying an album, playing it through a couple of times and then only managing to sit through two songs at other times before I feel my sense of equilibrium has gone.Read more ›

When I first played this album, I couldn't believe how great the first 5 tracks were. I still love them, each one is so catchy and upbeat - 'Too Little Too Late' and 'Pinch Me' can really cheer me up whatever mood I'm in. However I have to be honest and say that I don't think the rest of the album quite lives up to the promise of these first 5 fabulous songs. 'Conventioneers', 'Off the Hook', 'Night I Fell Asleep at the Wheel' have definitely grown on me and because they sound different and a bit experimental, they really stand out. But while listenable, 'Humour of the Situation', 'Baby Seat', 'Helicopters' unfortunately sound just too generic to be very special. 'Sell Sell Sell' is just a bit of a novelty that is okay once but I don't feel like listening to it again. I think the first 5 tracks should have been split up and spread over the album more not shoved at the start to make listening to the whole album in one session more exciting. All of Ed's songs are near the beginning of the album. So still a top album compared to other stuff out there but next to other BNL albums, I still prefer Gordon and Stunt. The version of the album listed here on Amazon does not seem to feature the final track that my one has called 'Inline Bowline' - this is actually a fab track which is one of my faves on the album. It's sung by Jim so it sounds really different and refreshing after hearing all those songs sung by Steve. It's all about the knot and suicide and is a great track. I'd suggest getting the version of the album with this song on the end.
