A absolutely stunning album,
By A Customer
This review is from: Maroon (Audio CD)
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.
